Kentucky Department of Highways District 7 crews gathered at the Kentucky Horse Park Tuesday for the annual road workers "Olympics" known as the Equipment Roadeo.

The event tests equipment operators' expertise in a friendly competition that includes truck and plow course, a backhoe competition, and tractor with mower skills.

Participants competed in six different events and those that finished in first and second in each event move on to a state-wide competition in two weeks. State-wide winners then move on to the Southeastern Roadeo in Arkansas.
