Team Mighty Midgets rode strong for RAGBRAI from Jefferson to Ames. Joe Omundson said, "We did meet up with many folks who saw our shirts and said they were also Midget alumni young and old."

The five Midgets who rode this year were Marie Sampson, Rick O'Brien, Christy Adams, Diane Beirne all from the class of 1982, and Joe Omundson from the class of 1984.

Some of the Midgets live in the Des Moines area and jumped on the bike trail back to Ankeny, Omundson said. The Mighty Midgets rode in part to honor ELC wrestler Lincoln Coakley, who is recovering from a brain injury suffered in a June auto accident at a rehab facility in Ankeny. The #LincolnStrong bracelets, however, did not come in before RAGBRAI.
