More than 500 cyclists will take part this weekend in what is called Cyclocross, bicycle racing around obstacles.  It's the first time this world championship race is taking place outside of Europe and Louisville is proud to be the host city.  Three cyclocross masters riders rode into Studio H on Great Day Live today to talk about this growing sport in the U.S. and how it is booming as a spectator's event as well.

Weighing in at just 17 pounds their high performance bikes can range in cost from $4000 to $8000 dollars apiece.  Terry's big concern is the amount of padding on the bike's seat.  They're called masters for a good reason and you may be surprised as to why.  Learn more about the race which takes place at Eva Bandman Park.
