Jingle Cross Rock: 6 Podiums, 3 Days

The boys capitalized on their first visit to the Jingle Cross Rock Cyclocross Festival by making six podium appearances over the three days of racing. Zach continued his winning ways in the U23 division by sweeping all three races and looks to be on track for the wins at the USGP in Portland, OR next weekend. Chris demonstrated why he is considered one of the few elite riders in the Nation capable of competing for the win at a the National Championships. Jones battled back from tough starts each day, showed the tenaciousness and raw power necessary to bring home the Stars and Stripes Jersey, and finished the weekend with a hat trick of 3rd places.

Catch the boys next weekend live in person at the Portland International Raceway or on cyclingdirt.org at 3pm both Saturday and Sunday.

Zach has been crushing it lately, a phenomenal performance in Fort Collins, CO, and again this weekend in a snowy Seattle, WA. Zach won solo after leaving the front group of three just before the final lap. Find out more about Zach in his interview with the Bicycle Story.

The boys hope to keep this forward momentum going this weekend, starting tonight, at the Jingle Cross Rock three day race in Iowa City, IA.
