"The Compton/ Keogh camp is one of my personal highlights of Trek," said Caelyn. "I always learn something new. The competition at a world cup event is much different then a local race. The atmosphere and race brings a closer experience to nationals than any local race."
"The kids are on the edge of exploding," said Brooke. "They look forward to these race weekends all year, a great time with the team and a time where they feel 'so close to pro.' To me, that is what it’s all about: fostering a wonderful environment where the kids can bloom."
"In my opinion, these events bring the future of cycling and cyclocross to light. I love when a bystander asks about this 'cycling thing.' It’s clear that opportunities in cycling are spreading in the US, and it's rewarding to be on the brink of that movement!"
There's still time to register for both Jingle Cross and Trek CXC, whether you're a Junior, a Cat 5, a wannabe pro, or a Masters racer. Then again, you can also just come watch and cheer us on.
If you're in the Iowa City area, Jingle Cross is still looking for volunteer help this week and through the race weekend. Come help make it happen!
