“The partnership with GCN is a huge step forward for cycling in North America,” said John Meehan, USCX Series co-owner and promoter of the Iowa City Jingle Cross event. “GCN does incredible work covering cycling events around the world, and we are excited to work with them to share this eight race, four venue series with international audiences. The increase in exposure for the athletes, sponsors and local communities is crucial for the sport’s continued growth. We look forward to showcasing these great events to the world.”
GCN+ is part of the Discovery-owned Play Sports Group.
