So without further ado, here is the Jimmy Fins Racing Team:
Thats James on the left (he rides) and me on the right (I drove the Midge Express to various points along the route in case there was a break down, gear needed to be changed or water bottles needed refilling) I stayed toasty warm for the most part except for when I was in ankle-deep snow taking 100+ pictures as the riders came by.
Here is just a sampling: [Click on photos to see a larger view]
First check point is the HyVee sponsored hot chocolate stand.
Riders on the Road
Land Shark - you know the theme from Jaws is playing in your head right now
In Rippey - the half way point
We had lunch in Rippey
and then headed back on the road.
Pix on the Road
And finally getting back to town
Didn't take any pictures once we got back to Perry .. too cold, too tired. We just secured equipment and got back on the road to Des Moines.
After a rest and barbeque at Jethro's, the road crew whipped the rider in Wii Resort ( in wakeboarding and speed slice). The road crew, ironically, got killed in Mario Kart :o)
