Yep, Phil broke his foot while he was out riding last week so he'll be on the sidelines for a couple of months. Luckily, he won't need surgery but he will be hobbling around in a sweet walking cast/boot thing that he wasted no time customizing...
Since Phil was out of commission and couldn't ride this past weekend, he decided to host a little Haro jam at the Fenwick skatepark up in Washington state. Phil grilled up hot dogs and served up soda for all 60 riders that showed up for the jam.
Phil's friend Tony Archibeque got some of the jam action on video....
We’ll have a booth set up each day at the MBT Lifestyle Festival which will be located near the finish line at each stage finish. Festival hours are 11am to 4:30pm each day. Stage finish cities and dates go as follows:
• Stage 1, May 16: Sacramento
• Stage 2, May 17: Santa Rosa
• Stage 3, May 18: Santa Cruz
• Stage 4, May 19: Modesto
• Stage 5, May 20: Bakersfield
• Stage 6, May 21: Big Bear Lake
• Stage 7, May 22: Los Angeles
• Stage 8, May 23: Thousand Oaks
Be sure to stop by the Haro booth to check out the bikes we’ll have on display, grab some Haro stickers, and pick up a tube of our all-natural Haro lip balm we’ll be giving away.
Haro pro trials rider Mike Steidley will be performing his signature bike stunt show twice daily in our booth. The first show will be at 12:30pm and the second show is scheduled for 2:30pm (this time might float a little bit based on when the peleton is due to arrive at the finish line).
We're raffling off a bike a day at each stage of the TOC with the proceeds to benefit Susan G. Komen For the Cure! Raffle tickets are just $1 each, so for less than the cost of a cup of coffee you can help join the fight against breast cancer and have the chance to win a Haro or Masi bicycle.
We’ll also be giving away some other cool prizes each day…but you have to follow us on Twitter to win! Each day, we’ll be sending out a “TOC Tweet” that will contain the word of the day. The first 10 people who show this tweet to us at the booth will get a Haro tee shirt. The second 10 people will get a Haro water bottle. Be sure to follow us on Twitter…@HaroBikesMTB.
See you on the road!
