It is great to see the positive reviews of Haro’s supported Dale Holmes Racing - Ride to End Obesity RTEO After School program.  A quote from a Poway Unified Administrator- “A belated thank you for coming to MBMS last week.  Cindy and Laura gave RTEO rave reviews of the presentation, bike riding, and overall good vibes.  There were 2-3 students who can now ride a bike that couldn’t before – cheers!”

This week the Haro supported Dale Holmes Racing Ride To End Obesity School program kicked off in San Diego.  It’s all about educating the kids on eating well, staying active, making positive life choices and an introduction to BMX.  This week’s visit included Olympic Gold Medalist and Team USA’s BMX Director, Jamie Staff, as he put on a presentation for the kids alongside helping to coach the kids on bikes during the second half of the visit in the school yard. Great start to the school season.  It’s all about getting more kids on BMX bikes.

This past weekend both Haro Pros, Brooke Crain and Nic Long, made the trip to Bakersfield for the Tangent / Shimano Pro Am at the new revamped, Metro BMX Track.
It was an action-packed weekend with a Pro Autograph session complete with a big Pro turn out in both the women’s and men’s Elite classes including a handful of top Olympians and top Amateurs all in attendance. Big shout out and props to the Tangent, Shimano and Metro BMX crew for an awesome event.  And, to top it off, Brooke took the win in the Elite Women’s class.

The “Quick 4” with Brooke Crain

How’s your season going so far?

My season is going great so far. Two wins and two 2nds. Best start to a season I’ve ever had!!

Did you do anything differently training this winter?

I didn’t do anything different this winter other than not stress because it’s not an Olympic year and I really have no pressure on myself. I think that has helped me this year.

What are your goals for the year?

My goal for this year is to win my first World Cup and get my first ever, USA BMX women’s pro title. I’ve gotten 2nd way too many times.

8 meter hill or 5 meter hill?

5 meter or flat, lol. I’m not a fan of the big hill at all.
