Jingle Cross race organizers confirmed Saturday that their cyclocross race, held in Iowa City, will be part of next year’s UCI cyclocross World Cup series.
The race, traditionally held in late November or early December (hence the Christmas theme), will move to the weekend of September 24-25, 2016, with the elite World Cup racing happening on Saturday.
“We are very excited that the UCI has selected Jingle Cross and the city of Iowa City as a host event for the UCI World Cup,” said Jingle Cross founder and race director John Meehan. “We have been recognized as an outstanding cyclo-cross race by professional riders, recreational amateurs, spectators, and fans for many years here in North America. Now the world can see our amazing event.”
CrossVegas, the first-ever UCI World Cup held in North America, confirmed that it too will be part of the series again in 2016.
