Harley’s Bikes Over Baghdad Tour Heads to Qatar
The team has also already received requests for additional tours at bases in the U.S. and other locations around the world.
As a fresh reminder, the Bikes Over Baghdad (BOB) is an American team made up of some of the world's best BMX athletes, announcers and ramp builders. They include Chad Kagy, Brian Kachinsky, Mike Escamilla, Anthony Napolitan, Drew Bezanson, Zack Yankush, Mykel Larrin, Ron Kimler and Nate Wessel.
These athletes will perform two shows for several thousand U.S. military and coalition forces stationed at Al Udeid Air Force Base. In addition to the shows, giveaways and autographed posters, the Harley-Davidson sponsored tour features a high level of interaction with the troops.
Specifically, ramp builders invite soldiers to help them build and the riders spend their days visiting the troops where they work and live.
"The next Bikes Over Baghdad tour planned for Iraq and Kuwait will be bigger than ever and will include more ways for folks back home to get involved. Details are still coming together, but in the meantime, we're thrilled to be able to send the team to Qatar this month to perform for more of America's finest,” stated Christian Schauf, who is the Creator of Bikes Over Baghdad and Program Manager.
