#BackTheShack At The Amgen Tour Of California: Stage 5

This is post 6 of 9 in the Tour of Cali 2011 series

Stage 5 of the Amgen Tour of California kicks off at Seaside, California, and Sarah was able to catch up with Matt Shriver of Trek Bikes to get some details about the bicycles that Team RadioShack is riding during the Tour. The graphics for the team’s bicycles were designed by Shepard Fairey, and took up to 12 hours to apply to each bike! Sarah also had a chance to chat with Matt about the ways that he stays connected while at the Tour of California, including his favorite app for his BlackBerry smartphone and his Apple iPad.



Throughout the week, we’ll have exclusive videos from each of the eight stages of the Tour of California, including a Q&A session with a cycling pro, fan interviews, and more. We’ll also be hosting a daily contest at http://www.Facebook.com/RadioShack with awesome prizes, including an HTC Inspire 4G in red and a Motorola Xoom.

There is a new contest every day, with a Virtual Cyclist that fans will need to cheer on by tweeting @RadioShack with #BackTheShack and a few words of encouragement. Make sure you let your friends know, because the daily prize won’t be unlocked until the Virtual Cyclist reaches the end of the stage – the more tweets you send, the faster he’ll move. Once the prize is unlocked, every person who tweeted is automatically entered to win the prize for that day.

You can get all the details at http://www.Facebook.com/RadioShack, so head over there now. You can also follow us on Twitter at @RadioShack to keep up with all the awesome #BackTheShack tweets throughout the week.
