Iron Biker 2009, Tinker's Award & the MonaVie Challenge

When Tinker and Matt checked in last night I could barely get to talk with Tinker because Matt was so excited about the race, the town, the country, and the whole experience. They said it was awesome, and Mona Vie presented Tinker with a long introduction and a special award for being a legend in mountain biking. The intro was in Portuguese, but they could tell by the way the crowd was looking and then all the applause and even tears, it was an emotional, touching, & wonderful dedication to a person who is greatly loved by the mountain bike community.


Brazil was deeply grateful for the honor of having MonaVie-Cannondale and Tinker at their beloved Iron Biker.

MonaVie posted a photo of Tinker receiving his award and of Alex receiving third place in the MonaVie Challenge.
