PHOTO ESSAY: Eva Bandman Park Christened for Cyclo-cross

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The world will have its eyes on Louisville this weekend for the 2013 Cyclo-cross World Championships.

And with that, Louisville Metro Mayor Greg Fischer christened the track at Eva Bandman Park.

Hundreds of riders from about 25 countries are in Louisville ahead of this weekend's elite race. The World Championships started more than 60 years ago.

They've always been held in Europe -- until now.

Photojournalist Dominik Fuhrmann shows us what it takes to compete in a winter sport of a different kind.
