I talked with the two fellows on the left, Mike Dematties (from Virginia) and Jabez Muelemans just prior to their teaming up with their fellow Christmas Day riders. Jabez has been captain of the men’s Primal Cycling Team for four years. Twenty year old Primal is the largest men’s cycling team in Colorado. I had to inquire about his first name and he responded that “It means to bring pain and sorrow in Hebrew.” If you are an accomplished bicycle racer, this name seems very appropriate.
