Up next: Jingle Cross Rock 3 Day in Iowa City, IA

Hopefully there won’t be too much tryptophan left in the system; as this weekend, the boys are heading to Iowa City, IA for the three day Jingle Cross Rock races. Hope to see you there, and don’t forget about the photo contest!

Photo Contest, Week #6, Winner

It should be noted that this is the second time Jessica Heenan (Head Honcho for Mywifeinc Cyclocross Inc) has won the Rapha-FOCUS photo contest. This should go down in the record books to say that she is right there, ready to capture the action at all times. From the sounds of it she is also ready with delicious baked goods for post performance recovery as well and has been keeping our man Jones well fed on the road. Thanks to everyone who participated and keep an eye out for our boys as they compete at the three day Jingle Cross in Iowa City, Iowa next weekend.
