The best cyclists from around the world and cycling’s international governing body, the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale), have voted the Jingle Cross - Iowa City World Cup as the top event of the global series. Jingle Cross topped eight other races which were already selected as World Cups because they were considered the top events in the world.

“It is an incredible honor for Jingle Cross to be named the Best Cyclo-cross UCI World Cup,” said Promoter and Race Director John Meehan. “This award speaks to the dedication of Jingle Cross staff, volunteers, sponsors and the great people of Iowa City and Johnson County. Their hard work and love of cycling over the past 15 years has enabled Jingle Cross to grow into one of the premier cycling events in the world. We can’t wait until September and the opportunity to again bring world-class cyclo-cross to North America.”

The 2018 edition will be held on September 28th-30th, 2018, in Iowa City, Iowa. Jingle Cross will be the second stop in the Telenet UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup. Known for its challenging course, fun atmosphere, amateur racing and local hospitality, Jingle Cross again aims to be the highlight of the World Cup season.

"Jingle Cross and the UCI World Cup perfectly embodies the high energy, fun and supporting culture of Iowa City,” said Geoff Fruin, City Manager of Iowa City. “It has been an honor to welcome the world's best athletes to our community and we love celebrating and showcasing the sport to the world. Being recognized as the premiere Cyclocross event in the world is a humbling honor that we accept with great pride. We look forward to continuing to raise the bar for the sport with each future Jingle Cross that we host."

In addition to the World Cup event, there will be a full schedule of amateur races, a gravel ride, product expo, local vendors along with activities for the entire family. Packed with events, Jingle Cross delivers three days of action and excitement.
