BTB Weekend Preview: Volkswagen Jingle Cross Rock
There’s only one stop on the USA Cycling Pro Cyclo-cross Calendar this weekend, but it’s a big one. Three days of racing at the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Iowa City, Iowa, await the American cyclocross peloton as they head to Carousel Volkswagen Jingle Cross Rock this weekend. A massive haul of both UCI and USA Cycling Pro Cyclo-cross Calendar points are on offer, with Sunday’s Category 1 event offering triple points in the USA Cycling overall competition. Both the men’s and women’s competition are very close coming into this weekend, and everyone in the running for the overall title will be eager to grab as many points as they can. They’ll have a tough road ahead of them, however, as the courses at Jingle Cross, including the infamous Mt. Krumpit climb, are some of the hardest on the circuit. With the weather finally starting to move into cyclocross mode, this weekend promises to be one of the best the United States has seen all year!
