By | Blog, Slider, Uncategorized | No Comments

Remember, last February, Team David’s Salon participated in the Tigasin Ronda Norte, a 600 km bike course from Manila-Pasig to Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. Upon completion the team received Php 100,000 which they chose to donate to the France-Philippines United Action Foundation. This course was actually just a warm-up for the team who is about to compete in the biggest challenge of their life. 3000 miles, 12 states, four rivers, three major mountains ranges, is what Team David’s Salon will be cycling through in taking part of Race Across America (RAAM). The race will start in Oceanside, California on June 17. The team has 9 days to reach the finish line in Annapolis, Maryland. Impossible, you think? Nothing is for this first mixed relay team to represent Southeast Asia and the Philippines in the world’s toughest and longest time trial race. Team David’s Salon, is comprised of two males and two female cyclists: Guillaume D’Aboville,…
