A number of people, myself included, wondered how TJ Juskiewicz, who one day after quitting Ragbrai told the listeners of KXNO radio that he had the greatest job in the world and was looking forward to the 50th anniversary of Ragbrai. Just how could one news story cause him to spiral downward in 2 weeks and leave.
Also amazing was the day he left, his web site for his new ride was up complete with logo, primal shirts for sale, and registration. He claimed he did this all in 2 weeks on his own time. The guy who made it a point to emphasize his transparency failed to mention he and his wife created a nonprofit over a year before, this nonprofit just happens to be running his new ride.
So the guy who claimed his motives were related to Carson King has been waiting in the long grass 14 months for just the right time to destroy RAGBRAI. Drawing a salary from Ragbrai while actually running his new gig.
This story answers many questions.
When the disclosure statement on the finances of this nonprofit hits the light of day, we will also see the salaries for TJ, his wife, and other employees and officers. That ride he touted as totally for charity, well like they say, charity starts at home, TJ’s that is.
