Weather Watch in Louisville

I’ve heard comments about how the Worlds CX course isn’t as challenging as it could be… I suspect the weather over the next couple of days could affect that. I’m not sure I’ve ever heard of a Belgian or European CX Worlds being put under a Tornado watch/warning. The next few hours could dictate how …
