@niclong_64 was the only Haro Pro out in DeSoto, Tx this weekend and grabbed himself another podium. Saturday he went down in flames while fighting for another podium, but he and the whole rest of the team are headed on a 3 week euro-trip starting in Belgium tomorrow. Wish them all luck! 📷 @daleholmes

Rock Hill, SC was good to the Haro race team this year to say the least. Starting off the trip alittle rough with some bummer weather, the trip turned around quickly on this three day race weekend with everyone making every main they entered.

Friday USAC National Championship, was action packed with Brooke racing a three main total points race to earn a consistent 2nd place overall. The Elite men proved to be the best race of the night. Corben had an amazing start and pull down the hill, but Nic came through with the long pull and got the Holeshot and eventually the overall win and National Championship sleeve.

Saturdays inaugural USABMX North American SX series race, seemed to bring as much hype as expected. It certainly brought the payout, with 10k for the women and 20k for the men. (due to rider count) All three Haro racers got a slice of the pie. Brooke went down in a blaze of glory, going for 1st in turn one, and that big $3500 payday. Was an amazing race regardless. The Elite men put on one of the most exciting races since 2010 Chula SX, minus all the lead changes… But it was all tight and plenty of elbows rubbing. Both Haro’s men were in the final again with Nic taking 4th and Corben holding down 8th.

Final day of racing saw Brooke redeem herself with another 2nd and Corben taking his spot on the podium with a 3rd. Nic pulled out as he was satisfied with his weekend and didn’t want to risk crashing before the busy part of the upcoming season.

Haro Pro riders held it down this weekend as well as the Haro/Promax team, taking the Factory team win Sunday.

Packed up, and onto the next one… We will see you all in DeSoto, TX next weekend.

-Why did you pick the HARO Clutch to ride for the 2015 season?

Tyler: I rode this type of frame last year and really like how it rides. It has the race geometry I like, so I can set it up how I want it.

-Does it feel good to get to pick the parts you want to ride to make your bike the best possible?

Tyler: Yes, That is another great bonus of riding for Dans Comp! Dans lets the team pick what they would like to ride. So we can build our race bikes to the best possible setup we want.

-Any specific reason for the white?

Tyler: I have wanted to do an all white bike for a while now and it worked out this time around with all the parts I wanted to use. There are a few parts I didn’t want white as well, so this is how it turned out.

-You don’t want a mud race coming up do you?

Tyler: Ha Ha! A little mud won’t hurt anything besides the hotel room towels :)

-How long did it take you to get used to your new carbon bike?

Tyler: Not too long, only a day or two. I really like the response of the carbon out of the gate and turns.

-What’s the trickest/coolest part of your bike?

Tyler: I would have to say my Sponsor logos I always add to my bike. Without them I wouldn’t be able to do what I do.
