• Diamondback and Circuit Sport bake up fresh ride to highlight Gaimon’s breakout from childhood obesity
• Bike to be donated to UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation and auctioned off to help families in need
Diamondback and Circuit Sport designed a one-of-a-kind “Cookie Bike” paint scheme for Optum Pro Cycling team presented by Kelly Benefit Strategies (KBS) team member Phil Gaimon that he will race at this year’s Amgen Tour of California.
Like many others, Phil was born with a sweet tooth, which led to poor health and childhood obesity. When he discovered cycling, it set him on the path to a healthy lifestyle. Phil eats a balanced diet like a professional athlete now, but he still enjoys the occasional cookie, when he earns it.
Once the bike finishes its rounds on the professional circuit with Gaimon, the Optum Pro Cycling team in partnership with Diamondback will donate it to the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) for a future charity auction, and to raise awareness of Optum p/b KBS, Diamondback and the UHCCF’s shared commitment to health and wellness.
