CX Worlds in Koksijde is a big deal. Like the fucking Super Bowl or something. Next year, it will be held here in the US, in Louisville, a 90 minute drive from my house. Post race, they made a big deal of passing the UCI flag over to the US. I saw these pictures on Mark Legg’s Facebook page and he graciously gave me permission to post them here.
I wonder how Pat McQuaid felt about the flag being passed over to a female? It must be hard for him to contemplate how a female could be capable of handling such a big race.
A little bird told me “There’s a lot of old school men in the UCI and the race promoters are all a boy’s only club. It will take some time but Cyclocross is leading the way for women.”
It’s becoming a woman’s world now, so they better get the fuck over it.
I can’t wait till next year’s CX Worlds. Hopefully with Katie racing on familiar territory, she will kick some major ass. I will be there, cheering loudly.by
