Almost 1,900 mountain bikers descended on Willow Springs Ranch north of Tucson to compete in the 14th annual 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo, which was sponsored by Tucson Medical Center.

Event organizer and Epic Rides president Todd Sadow said the weekend was a success.

“The weather was perfect, the crowd was great, everybody was obviously excited to be there,” Sadow said. What makes it so much fun is the camaraderie, sharing a weekend with 2,000 of your best mountain biking friends.”

Each year I pull out some of the best names. Be warned, they are often offensive:
