The notion that the world has come to Richmond, Virginia is no exaggeration: begging on this past Saturday, cyclists spanning the entire globe began to roll up and own the usually bustling city streets. Main thoroughfares have been closed, giving pedestrians and cyclists the opportunity to travel like they never have before.

I have photos from the very first day of the UCI Road World Championships and from the very last day. This really was one of the most exciting events in the history of RVA.
