Jingle GX Gravel Race in United States
August 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Jingle GX Gravel Race was part of the 2021 Jingle Cross Cycling Festival in Iowa City which included the 3rd leg of the UCI Cyclocross World Cup Series last year but now moves to the first weekend of August to be the final American qualifier for the 2022 UCI Gravel World Championships. The Jingle Cross team has organized more than 40 major UCI cycling events including 5 UCI World Cups and 12 C1 level UCI cyclocross races.
The Jingle GX Gravel Race travels along the rolling hills of Eastern Iowa. The state of Iowa is legendary with over 100,000 km of gravel roads accounting for more than 60% of all roads in the state! The Jingle GX will start and finish in the world-famous Amana Colonies, a unique German-based community in the Midwest. Iowa is not flat. This fun but challenging rolling course has some short but very steep hills, unique B level dirt roads, and goes through scenic farmland and several villages that comprise the German heritage of the Amana Colonies. Oktoberfest will be in full swing at the the Festhalle Barn when you finish .
The total distance of 69 miles (111 km) counts as official qualifier distance for the UCI Gravel World Championships for all age groups.
