Jingle Cross never disappoints!!

Temperatures hovered in the low teens on Friday night, mid 20s on Saturday and Sunday as a couple inches of snow started to fall right before the Men's Elite race on Saturday and made for an interesting and sloppy Sunday for everyone but the Elites as the course became tacky as they started the race.


Jingle Cross has grown into the largest Cyclocross race in North America except for the World Cup. Pretty good for a cyclocross race for charity in little 'ol Iowa. High Fives to John Meehan, Todd Gillihan, Mark Guthart and the entire crew for organizing such a high caliber event that just keeps getting better every year!
