When the UCI Cyclo-Cross World Championships came to America for the first time in its 64-year-old history, there was plenty of action  and even more mud  in Louisville, Kentucky. The event on February 2nd hosted four championships in different age groups and genders, all highlighted by the muddy trails, barriers and staircases that define the event. If you're lucky enough to medal? Just wash up first.
