RAAM Fans, recent picsFTMD

I'm not even sure of this guy's name, but he's the current RAAM leader I believe. Came through the STL suburbs about 10 minutes ago. I jumped in the car and hit the route which was only a few minutes from my office. Caught up to him, took some pics from the car, passed him and went up the road about 1/2 mile, stopped and fiddled with the camera for a second. By the time I was done fiddling he was past me, so he's moving! Worked my way around him a second time (giving large margins both times) and snapped another shot. By the way, he waved at me the second time he came by. He's pushing a monster gear too. Cool stuff!

First place 4 person team. Allen Larsen is leading Rob Kish in the men's solo by almost 200 miles.
Looks that way based on vehicle/rider number (426).PseuZQ

That's so cool that you came upon them like that!

OK, now, could you hang out there and take some more pics?
I could...but no thanksFTMD

Kinda boring hanging out for hours waiting for the next rider to come through. I was shocked to see how close the route came to my office. There was NO coverage of this at all locally. Disappointed in that.
