The 2013 World Cyclo-Cross Championships will be held in Louisville, Kentucky, the UCI announced this past Friday. This is huge news for Nor-Cal racers! Because leading up to the 2013 Elite World Cyclo-Cross Championships Louisville- Kentucky will also host the Masters World Championships as well in 2012 & 2013. Nor-Cal obviously boasts some of the best Masters aged Cross racers in the world, as evident after the dominating National Championships our region posted in Bend Oregon. Northern California had impact in seemingly every Masters race during the past USA Championships. Hopefully many of the amazing Nor-Cal Women Masters will make the trip to Louisville, Kentucky in 2012 & 2013, where I can almost guarantee podium results for the fabulous Nor-Cal ladies. I also have a very strong feeling that the Nor-Cal Masters Men racers will also play key roles in Kentucky when Louisville hosts the Masters World Championships. This is very big news for Cross racing in America. I can only imagine that some traditional Cross fans and teams from Europe are not pleased with the USA hosting the biggest Cyclocross race of all in 2013. However here in America the news of Louisville hosting the Elite World's is spectacular. For more info here is a report from Cycling News- Here is a take from Tim Johnson the reigning USA Champion and the first American to ever step on the podium at the Elite World's when he was 3rd in the U-23 race in the ice and snow of Poprad, Slovakia in 1999.-
