Eva Bandman Park and Cyclocross

Overview

Louisville's Eva Bandman Park is the premiere cyclocross venue in the United States. Cyclocross is a form of bicycle racing that combines different types of racing elements - wooded trails, graded, steep hills and obstacles that require the rider to dismount, carry the bike over or around the obstruction, and remount. Metro Parks began construction of the course at Eva Bandman in 2009, and completed the course prior to the 2010 USGP Derby City Cup. The course combines scenic views of downtown Louisville and the Ohio River but still employs treacherous​ features such as sand mounds, numerous run-ups, "flyovers," and wooded areas that will pose challenges for even the most experienced riders.
