What is Cyclo-cross?

Cyclo-cross is a sport that combines cycling, steeplechase, and NASCAR all rolled into one. Athletes race around a 2 miles course with steep hills, difficult descents, mud, grass, sand and dirt. This is a circuit race so the athletes pass the spectators many times every few minutes as they go lap after lap over obstacles and barriers sometimes riding, sometimes running with their bikes. There's even a pit with mechanics and a pit crew for each athlete. Everything happens on the Johnson county fairgrounds and the action is all around you. Large screen TV's will relay the event too so no matter where you stand at the venue, you will see all the action. We've got fun and games all day for the Kids and its great for the family. And don't forget the great Iowa food vendors, bands, DJ's, and Beers and Gears Oktoberfest  Celebration and you have a huge globally televised party!

Jingle Cross Rock has been know for it's "Christmas themed" courses. We'll race again Friday night riding under the Christmas lights. The infamous Mt. Krumpit will certainly challenge the pros in the Elite event while the Grinch's Lair will prove a fun experience for the most novice cyclist.

This is THE BEST Spectator-friendly course in the Midwest!!!
