Jim Dominick has DREAMED of riding Iceman, but faces two distinct challenges – no car, and a history of epileptic seizures.
Jim commutes 20 miles a day, year-round, in every kind of weather, and chooses NOT to own a car. With that kind of dedication to the sport, Iceman Cometh Challenge seemed a natural fit, and so his manager introduced him to this famous, Michigan race.
With his last epileptic episode occurring December 6th, 2017, Jim decided that THIS would be his year, and reached out to the Iceman organization. His persistent communications caught the attention of kind-hearted Denine, and he was given a green light… and an entry!
Lacking transportation, the Iceman group appealed to a variety of organizations on Jim’s behalf until Steve Velopp, a Hometown Bicycles customer, recommended contacting our shop. We put it out to our Team and, within an hour, Team Hometown’s Mike Dyer and Jim Thompson rallied to the call. Real class act, guys!
We coordinated between shop and Team to bring Jim from East Point to the shop… and Mike and Jim T. shuttled him the rest of the way there. We can’t wait to hear what you think of your Iceman dream coming true, Jim. Thanks for making us a part of your adventure!
Good luck, Jim and Team Hometown Bicycles!!
