"I got my a$$ kicked today, by a fairy."

At least that's what one C racer said, that finished behind Jordan at Red Barn.



Linda and Jordan swapped genders for Red Barn, and what a hoot it was (We surely missed you and the Mrs today Ray). Watching Jordan's wings fly back as he rode kept everyone in stitches. Linda went as a 60's Pimp Daddy. I went as Captain Jack Sparrow, eye makeup and all. Jordan tied for 1st in the C race costume contest, and Linda won the B race costume contest.I overheated during my race a bit, but beating Super Rookie, and Mostly Naked Red Lantern, for 1st prize in the A race costume contest was worth every bead of sweat.

Jordan won the C4's, and Linda won the B3's. I'm pretty sure I finished 9th in the A3's, just missing the cutoff for CRY points (see, Maren). Doug Swanson won the A race handily, followed by Hareland. Casper got tangled up with Bergman on the last lap and lost a couple spots.

Lovely Linda aka Pimp Daddy

Got a little Captain in you?

Red Bull gives you wings

Look, it's a flying fairy.

There's a new sheriff in town, and his name is Skibby.

The start of the B race women, led by a man.

WTF?

3rd Place in the costume contest (out of 3).

Painman gets a hand-up from the fairy.

I think I heard Arrrrrgh cheered to me 1000 times during the race.

Post race dehydration setting in.

Linda was supposed to be a hippie, repleat with 5lb peace medallion around her neck that somehow failed to knock out her teeth. But the rasta interpretation is close enough.

I stand corrected. Carla pointed that out too.

Jimmer, that's a great pirate look you've got going. Master Jordan Cullen, I can't come up with the words. You had to win the costume contest. Off the charts rock and rollish. Props to Carla for hooking the boys up.

I was admiring your cool pirate costume when I was IMMEDIATELY corrected by her daughter that I was looking at Cap'n Jack Sparrow. And she would know a great costume since she helped her mom with mom's winning C race costume. Great costume and hearing all the "Arrrrgh!" cheers was a riot.

Hello, can I get permission to use a couple of your pictures for an article I'm writing? Its theme is costumes versus the real thing. Thanks!

Jordan looked like he was enjoying being a fairy a little too much!
