The Telenet UCI Cyclo-Cross World Cup returns to Iowa City as part of the 3 day Jingle Cross Cyclo-Cross Festival. The World Cup has only been awarded to North America 5 times... and Iowa City counts for 2 of those for this year's honor. Last year, the World Cup was awarded to Iowa City for the first time thanks to the 13 year efforts of Jingle Cross team of amazing volunteers. Joined by the local Iowa City-Coralville Convention and Visitor's Bureau (nicknamed the CVB), Jingle Cross and the CVB joined forces to bring a world class event to the Johnson County Fairgrounds putting Iowa City on the map for tens of millions of sports fans.
Now the best bike racers in the world desend on Iowa City once again for the first of this prestigeous globally televised nine race series which premiers in Iowa this September.
