The Mud, the Blood, and the Beer

Steve and Jason braved the elements to represent Team XXL last Saturday at the 9th annual Liberty Jamboree in Columbia, MD. The Liberty Jamboree is a grass roots, single-speed-only stage race and fund raiser hosted by Jim Casey and his in-laws.  An amazing, fun, epic day -- XXL will be back for the 10th anniversary!

The prized yellow jersey, which has not been washed in 9 years.

Jason and friends.  Overall winner, Joel, on right.

Steve, despite his initial concerns, did not catch "chest herpes" from the yellow jersey.

Mike P. 4th place, Sport Male 45+

Honey Badger, 3rd place, Sport Female
