2008 Phoenix Idiotarod
From the Phoenix New Times blurb:
It’s fair to say that last year’s inaugural Phoenix Idiotarod was a success. No bodies were impaled or skulls busted open during the human-powered, urban shopping-cart race. But who knows what’ll happen when the dumb-a-thon returns to the pothole-heavy downtown streets? Is this a measure of success? Well, that’s up to interpretation. No matter what we think, feel free to be a fool by, uh, borrowing a shopping cart, dressing in costume, and recruiting some fellow partners in low IQ for the ’08 version.
All this for the low, low price of $6 and our dignity!
This isn’t an inclusive photo set, just some images I thought were interesting from those photos posted immediately after the race. Still sorting out the photo credits…
The hashers kicked ass this weekend though we were all guilty of racist behavior. We took first and second place, although WMD would have been a strong contender for the win had they not skated right past the final challenge. Even more impressive since they were racing on 3 wheels and a duct tape nub by the end of it.
Third Place: WMD
