Jingle Cross is over. There was a time, before the World Cups came to the USA, when Jingle Cross was Thanksgiving weekend or later and felt like the culmination of the season. All the more reason that while we nurse our tired legs, skinned knees, and bruised egos, we also look forward to a lot of great cyclocross racing ahead in this 2021 season.

First and foremost for us Eastern Iowa types is The Grand this weekend in Des Moines. Two days of cyclocross brought to you by the Phoenix Syndicate, The Grand unfolds around The Sands Volley Ball Club right in the heart of the city.

"The course will be similar to years past with a few changes and possibly some new lines in the woods," said Scott Olsen. "Other highlights will include the free Women's clinic on Friday afternoon, Hector’s Hot Pepper Taco Truck, andkids' race both days. We'll give away beer in the woods Saturday afternoon, and prizes will be swag, cookies, and some neat?handmade signs."
