American riders had varying levels of success in the heat and on the hills in Iowa City at the Jingle Cross World Cup on Sunday. Ellen Noble rode near the front all afternoon and took home an eighth-place finish in her first World Cup as an Elite rider. Katie Compton was riding in second before a tough crash effectively ended her race. Jeremy Powers came on strong in the second half of the race and finished 27th.

Stay tuned to Cyclocross Magazine for a photo gallery of Sunday’s World Cup race from Dave Mable. Dave is one of the hardest-working folks in cyclocross. After racing the Chequamegon 40 in northern Wisconsin on a tandem with his wife, he drove seven hours Sunday morning to cover the World Cup races. You can look for Dave’s work again this weekend from Waterloo.
