The original schedule was set to hold four events spread out over two days. Due to rising water levels in the Ohio River and Beargrass Creek, which were predicted to flood low-lying parts of the venue by the morning of February 3, the UCI decided on Friday, February 1 to hold all the races on Saturday, February 2.
The event organizers arranged for a temporary barrier to be erected to keep floodwaters from reaching the course on Saturday. In addition, the rider presentation, scheduled for the evening of February 1 at the Fourth Street Live! entertainment complex in downtown Louisville, was canceled.
