Caveman Wins 50th XTERRA Title

In a sport in which merely competing in fifty events would be a milestone for most athletes, multisport legend Conrad Stoltz has done the unimaginable and won his 50th XTERRA title. Given "The Caveman's" renowned toughness, it's fitting that he hit this milestone in Buffelspoort, Namibia, a race known for its soaring temperatures, unpredictable course conditions and a technical, hilly run.  If you like blistering sun, water crossings, bats, thorns, waterfall scrambles and giving blood
