There is only one other World Cup Race in the USA and that is Cross Vegas which is held earlier in the week. Jingle Cross was moved up from December to attract all the euros and pros that also go to Cross Vegas.

The shorter beginner's events will have opportunities to win all kinds of cool prizes while the elite races will have some of the biggest stars in cycling from professionals who have raced in the Tour de France to US National Champions and even World Champions.

Aside from the exciting UCI Pro racing, there will be overall amateur champion jersey presentations on Sunday, as well as "Race the Grinch" childrens race on Saturday and the "Grinch's Single Speed Speedo Spectacular" on Sunday.

Come ride for fun, race for prizes, or come and be a spectator in one of the most unique forms of bike racing in the world. The World Cup Races will be on Saturday.
