PhotoHaro Bikes brand manager Allan Cooke has just confirmed that Marcus Tooker has officially joined the Haro team. If you recall, Marcus rode for Haro a few years back, but they parted ways shortly after. We asked Marcus a few questions about this new change.

So you're back on the Haro program, huh?

Yup, I was on Haro back in 2007, and now I'm back and more psyched than ever about it.

How'd all of this come about?
I had been riding with out a bike sponsor for a few months, and Alan approached me and ask me to ride for Haro again.  It was kind of a no-brainer, Haro is one of the most respected BMX companies out there.  They've been around forever, and are in it for the long haul.  It's an honor to be part of the program.

Are you stoked?

Heck yea!!!

What all do you have in the works with Haro?

Traveling!  Which I'm pumped about. I want to do a lot of bike shop visits and ride with locals in different scenes all over the country.  Haro seems to be real pumped on me doing it so it's all working out pretty well.

What's your current bike set up?

I'm rocking a Haro Convert frame at the moment.  I like it, everything feels good.  I just put on some bigger bars, which is a change for me.  It took some getting used to, but now I don't think I could go back.  Other than that it's pretty stock, my seat post has gone down a little too, haha. 

How does it feel to have Allan Cooke as a boss?

I don't mind it one bit.  He's a fun dude, who knows how to have a good time. He's been my boss before, and it was awesome.

What are your plans for the rest of the year?

Stay healthy is always the top priority, after that just have fun and travel as much as I can.

Anything else you'd like to add?
I'm super excited to be part of the Haro program again.  I'm pretty sure I have a fun year ahead of me.
