Sunday's 24MOTAB was one for the books and definitely fell in the category of Best MOTABs Ever. I mean three Santas, snow, freeflowing beer, spray paint graffiti courtesy of Surly Santa, presents from Snot Rocket Santa and christmas tree-like bike pile, what wasn't there to like?

But it wasn't all laughs as Sunday night we bid so long to D*Pow and J*Pow as they did their last 24MOTAB before heading off for Portland OR or Bethesda MD or Butte MT or where ever the hell it is they're moving to. Dan has been a mainstay in the Madison bike community, an instigator of bike mayhem like the ThunderJet series and the last of the original pre-kittenfactory 24MOTAB riders. Jen has always been up for anything and has thrown herself into cross and mountain bike races without a second thought. They've opened their home to traveling racers and drooling drunks alike. And they have two nice dogs.

AMAZINGLY D*Pow won and J*Pow took second place and they were both awarded for their efforts. D*Pow awarded us with presents that included several classic rock cds and albums carefully procured from somebody's curbside treasure trove, an aerospoke wheel (rear 26" so don't get too excited there you fixie hipsters), a classic VHS Paris Roubaix selection and all sorts of other things from the North (st.) Pole. Thank you Dan and Jen for everything you've contributed (except for that effing Van Hagar cd you stuck in my stocking.....
