Sunday at Jingle Cross offered up another spectacular day of racing. Two competitive elite races pitted a strong field of world class riders who stuck around following Saturday’s World Cup race. Despite the high level of competition, the crowd definitely was not the same as it was the day before. There was a bit of a cyclocross hangover in the air for Sunday’s race, which was a shame, but not a surprise. If this were just a C1 race weekend, the crowd would have been huge, like it was for Friday night’s C2 and Saturday’s World Cup. But the Sunday C1 just seemed like a bit to much to digest for most spectators who had already hit the road for home.
As I continue to unpack from the ITCH Tour, more videos and features from the past week will be posted. For now, please enjoy another spectacular gallery from ITCH Tour photographer, Ethan Glading. As an aside, I got a good chuckle when Ethan submitted his captions. They included this disclaimer: “I looked at the official map before I wrote the captions. None of the place names are made up (by me).”
