Joe Martin Stage Race: Stages 3 & 4, By Stefan Rothe

After our Saturday morning cruise with coffee & sticky Buns we took on Stage 3 of Joe Martin. Another 110miles but comparing to Stage 2 I knew it was going to be much harder. The Hogeye course is painful when really “being raced” and the constant winds (20-30mph) were an indicator of a hard 4+hr race.   […]

Joe Martin Stage Race: Stages 1 & 2, By Stefan Rothe

  Back in Arkansas for Joe Martin Stage Race. Done that race now 6, 7 or 8 times? This year with ELBOWZ and it’s pretty as usual up here. A few impressions from the last 3 days below:                                  Arrived!       […]

Finally in California!

After a nearly 24 hour drive over two days we finally made it to Redlands California for the 30th annual Redlands Classic! We arrived just in time to enjoy a short ride to stage one and have some dinner with our wonderful host families. Should be a great week of racing!

Redlands Classic

We’ve spent the last few weeks gearing up for our first NRC race of the year, the 30th annual Redlands Classic. The team is coming together nicely this season and these boys are ready to put on a show on the big stage! Oh, we’re taking the bossman along too!

Tulsa Tough!!!

By Travis McCabe (Elbowz) Tulsa Tough is a race that a lot of racers look forward to each year, and this year was no exception. I think it is safe to say that Tulsa Tough is our favorite race of the year, and with Eric winning on Cry Baby Hill last year we were coming […]

Joe Martin and Mr. Diaz

Joe Martin SR by Andres Diaz Corrales I got 9th in the TT to start. I was hoping the next stage would be an aggressive race, but it was very slow so that keep everybody together to the finish line. The next stage was pretty different, with Amaran in the breakaway it made the race […]

Winning all over!

Elbowz is everywhere! With E-roc in AZ and Logan Hutchings and Heathy Blackgrove taking the top 2 spots in the overall at the Fayetteville Stage Race. It’s looking like we’re ready for CA next month. Michael Sheehan and Nick Torraca once again prove their worth.. supporting their captains this weekend like true veterans. Taking 6th […]

Pace Bend 2013…

With Pace Bend Road Race being run by our new presenting sponsor Boneshaker, near their base in Austin, there was a lot of pressure on the Elbowz Racing Elite Cycling Team p/b Boneshaker Project. I made this very clear and came up with the plan to race very aggressive and get as many guys in […]

Walburg 2013

Elbowz mentor and Texas legend, Bret Crosby, silences any doubters and shows the TX Pro/1 field how it’s done. Together with our youngest superstar, Nick Torraca (aka #3), they drive the race winning break to an insurmountable 12 min gap, easily allowing the more experienced, Big Croz, to take top honors for his team. Also […]

2013 First Big Win

Red Trolley Classic by Travis McCabe I won this race last year out of a five man breakaway and I really love the uphill finish. Last year, the field wasn’t as large, there weren’t as many powerful teams, and there wasn’t the depth of fitness in the peloton. Experiencing firsthand the strength everyone had at […]

The Christmas Spirit…

As a father of three, I so proud to say that, with Ben’s help, our team was able to make lots of kids smile this Christmas season.. Giving back is one of our favorite pastimes (when off the bike of course) so we jumped at the chance to giveaway several of our custom balance bikes […]

Mr. Marcotte makes it a hat trick!

He took his third consecutive title at The University of Arizona Medical Center 30th El Tour de Tucson bicycle race on Saturday. “Off-Season”… No rest for the weary! Congrats, Erok… ntk
