The Jingle GX Gravel Weekend August 5-7includes a couple of marquis events with a full Oktoberfest style weekend celebration!

The Jingle GX Gravel Race on August 6th has been selected for the Trek UCI Gravel World Series, an Official UCI qualifying event for the 2022 UCI Gravel World Championships in October. This is the UCI’s World Championships with 12 UCI Gravel World Series qualifiers in Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America, and only 2 in the US. Participants age 19 to 99 compete in their respective age category. The top 25% of each age category qualifying for the World Championships in their own age group. If there are only a few riders in a given division, the top 3 of that age division also automatically qualify.

The Jingle GX was selected because of our knowledge and experience organizing world class cycling events as the hosts of 5 prior UCI Cyclo-cross World Cups. Our 110 km Jingle GX Gravel Race is a rolling course with occasional steep hills through beautiful Iowa farmland, rolling hills, and scenic countryside. Rest stops with food, beverages, and a complimentary mechanics station are set up about every 25 km with 3 total stops along the entire route. 

Sunday August 7th will include an exciting craft beer and poker rider to House Divided brewery in Ely, Bog Grove Brewery in Solon, and Millstream in Amana, Iowa with complimentary beer at each stop for riders age 21 and over. Pick up poker cards at each stop and win swag with your poker hand.

Both days will have our post-race Biketoberfest and craft beer celebration will be in full swing with Oktoberfest style bands and beer all weekend.
