LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Enthusiastic crowds turned out on Saturday for the Cyclo-cross World Championship, as organizers adapted quickly to run what was to be a two-day event on a single day.
The fear was that rain and snow could cause Beargrass Creek to flood the course at Eva Bandman Park, so all of Sunday's events were moved up to Saturday.
Thousands of people braved icy roads and muddy park conditions to cheer on their favorite cyclists. U.S. flags were in abundance, and one man even showed up dressed as Captain America from Marvel Comics and the recent movie.
Other fans displayed German, Canadian, and French flags, and it seemed that just about everyone brought a cowbell to clang. Anyone uncertain about whether riders were headed their way only had to listen; the onrushing sound of cowbells sweeping across the park let you know when the riders were approaching.
Shouts of "USA! USA!" were common as American riders went past. One fan yelled out, "Ride it like you stole it!" to one cyclist.
The muddy and slippery conditions meant the occasional rider took a spill -- and nearly every participant had flecks of caked mud that had splashed across their faces as they followed close behind other riders.
