#BackTheShack At The Amgen Tour Of California: Stage 8

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

Stage 8 of the 2011 Amgen Tour of California is the final stage, running from Santa Clarita to Thousand Oaks, California. At just over 80 miles, this is one of the longest stages in the Tour of California. We are incredibly proud of Team RadioShack’s Chris Horner, who took 1st Place overall in the Tour of California, and Levi Leipheimer, who took 2nd Place overall. Shortly after the stage finished, the Team RadioShack end of the tour party kicked off, featuring Big Boi as the lead artist. At the party, Sarah caught up with our VIP trip winner Elijah to see his reaction to winning the trip.




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.
