Idiotarod 2008 was farkin' awesome
I had a blast.
The race was all about misinformation. Despite what the website said, the race actually began in Chinatown. I went down to DUMBO, and met some people who were trying to set up a fake checkpoint. The goals was to waste the racers' time, and trick them into donning spandex--an instant disqualification.
So a trillion racers came to our checkpoint, drank, vomited, yelled, threw hommade flares at each other. What a blast. I followed some racers to the next few checkpoints, and then drank like crazy at the Moonshine pub in Redhook.
UPDATE: Here are some videos I took of the race, with my camera mounted on my handlebars.
And here's a video of dodgeball at the end in Columbia St.
