"Dirty Wooden Shoe is a great event and has something for everyone," said Vanessa Curtis of Iowa City Cycling Club. "There are some challenging technical elements including the Dutch Letters and some long uphill segments that tax the cardiovascular system, which make it a great tune-up for Jingle Cross."?

"Dirty Wooden Shoe is always a favorite as it’s my hometown course," added Trevor Roose (Iowa City Cycling Club). "I mean, who wouldn’t want a chance to win a hand carved wooden shoe?"
"Dirty Wooden Shoe is similar to Cannonball in that it’s primarily a grass course," he explained, "also with plenty of good straight-aways for putting down some power. DWS does have a couple tighter cornering sections, as well as the crowd favorite 'Dutch Letters,' a tight 'S' curve section up and down a hillside.
