This year our dear partners provide tons of great stuff again. We don´t want you to miss anything. So here is an overview about all the great free stuff you can get at RAD RACE Tour de Friends. We are so looking forward to this tour <3
Stuff to win!

It's not about being the overall fastest team at RAD RACE "Tour de Friends", but if you want to prove how strong you are go for one of our five STRAVA Challenges.
On each stage we got at least one strava challenge for you. Ride as fast as you can to win some awesome prices!

PIC OF THE DAY
It's OK to ditch your friends, lose your temper, zone-out, or sneak out early. It`s OK to make sacrifices in your daily life to stay committed. Whether you're a pro or an amateur, we know that having an obsession is no fairy-tail. Oakley is here to celebrate the good moments. Honour the hard-work and sacrifices. While having some fun, even during the bad and the ugly. Everybody struggles. But, if your love is genuine, the good times will be worth the bad. It's OK, in the name of obsession.
Post your personal OneObsession moment using the #OneObsession #TourdeFriends and link @oakleybike and @radrace to be in for a chance to win 1 out of 4 Oakley Flight Jackets with PRIZM ROAD
Test the best!
Our partners also provide their products for a proper 600km test ride across the Alps. Here is an overview:
Abus developed this super aero helmet. We love it! So we thought you should test it! With this sepcial design, 20 riders got the chance to test the helmet the full 600km from Munich to Venice.
All helmets are already allocated to 20 riders. However, ask us at the check-in if a helmet is still available.
If you're one of the lucky test riders don't forget your 100€ deposit. You'll get it back in Jesolo, if you don't want to keep the helmet.
As you might remember. Last year stage 3 was pouring rain. Just in case it´s raining again you can test ride the GORE SHAKEDRY jacket.
Same procedure as Abus! All 100 jackets are already allocated to 100 lucky riders. Don't forget your 200€ deposit.

ABUS Parc Fermée
ABUS is saving your bikes FOR FREE in a Parc Fermée during the riders briefing and after the stages until you go to bed. After you cross the finish line, you can leave your bike to the ABUS staff and cheer up the other incoming riders. Don't forget to pick up your bike, when you go to your hotel. We don't keep the bikes over night for you!
To make sure you're still on the track, we've got 2 checkpoints on each stage for you. Here you get your stamp in your checkpoint card. Of course you get some fruits and water as well!
Our friends of Gore Wear care about the first checkpoint on each stage. If you lost your rain jacket the day before, you can get a new one at the frist checkpoint.
But instead of buying equipment during the ride, you should use this 30% voucher on gorewear.com ! The code "RadRaceTdF2018" is valid until 30/09.
When you cycle across the Alps there is the tiny chance you get a problem with your bike. But we are prepared for that! Our Parktool mechanic will care about you little problems in the starting area. On all stages you can find Canyon and DT Swiss mechanics at the check points and in the finish area. If you have a technical problem, please solve it with the mechanics after the stage and not just in the morning.
Muc-Off Cleaning Station
After a long day on the bike, it can be super dirty. And nobody wants to ride on a dirty bike for 4 days. In the finish area of each stage you can find the Muc-Off Cleaning station. Just come over and use some Muc-Off products to get your bike clean and sexy again!
Hang out at the finish line
Besides cheering for all other participants at the finish line we got some other things for you to do. At our RAD RACE Info booth you can ask John and Juli everything you got in mind about the Tour de Friends. "Where do I sleep?" "When do we start tomorrow?" "..."
Have you seen our RAD RACE Tour de Friends T-Shirt? Or any other RAD RACE products? Our RAD RACE pop up store will be open for you in Vittorio Veneto and Jesolo.
You love your bike, but you can't stop thinking about others as well? Our friends from Canyon can show you differnt bikes in their booth.
