Love of the road…

By: Eric Marcotte Two paths cross of two completely different people and lives. Yet, the love, respect, and appreciation for the road and where it takes us brought us together. At the Mormon Lake Lodge in Flagstaff, AZ there was a biker rally for those who did not make the pilgrimage to Stugis. The group […]

The Green Jersey..

By: Eric Marcotte One of my proudest moments. Coming away with the green jersey at Cascade. We went into the Cascade Cycling Classic with the mindset of stage hunting. Looking at the course profile for each stage, we would likely not be in contention for an overall or high in the GC with the teams […]

Mission Accomplished…

The odds were stacked against us but never count us out.. we’re fighters. Mr. Marcotte smashed through barriers to come up on top.. winning the Sprinters Jersey at the 2012 Cascade Cycling Classic. Job well done boys…

Cascade Day 1

By: Christian Helmig As so often with stage races, the Cascade Cycling Classic kicked off with a prologue. Those short but very intense efforts don’t necessarily determine the outcome of the a stage race but they set the stage for what is to come and establish an initial order in the peleton. Last year’s prologue […]

Nick Kiernan On: Elbowz Racing

[vimeo]http://vimeo.com/45492164[/vimeo] A few days back, Nick and I had the chance to sit down and catch up. He had just returned from Nationals and was a little road weary. He brought one of the time trial bikes, the Specialized Shiv, to our office to get some shots. While Nick was in the studio, I happend […]

Enzo’s ButtonHole…

By: Sean Sullivan This winter I popped into my local shop for some chamois cream. Button Hole was on special, this was the first time I’d seen the Enzo brand, so I grabbed one, gave it a try then was back the next day to stock up! A week later I arrive at training camp […]


What a year it’s been thus far for the Elbowz Racing Family. With over 50 wins, three of them being USAC National Calendar wins, and countless podium appearances, it’s been an amazing season. Currently we’re in Augusta, GA wrapping up a successful week at the U.S. Elite National Championships. We came into the week heavily […]

My Minneapolis…

Minneapolis was my stomping grounds for nearly 5 years, and it’s been nearly that long since I’ve been back. I cannot express how much I miss this place and the friends I have here. Today was a perfect day to get out of the slump of a 12 hour plus drive from Tulsa, OK on […]


What an amazing weekend. Started off great and just kept getting better. Five riders in the top 31 after the time trial. Poor weather but Heathy riding to a stellar result on stage five, and then finishing it off with a 1,2 finish on stage six. What else can you ask for?!? Never, ever in […]

Ready for Nature Valley

By: Sean Sullivan Stretching out in the back of the van driving north it’s time to start thinking about our next race, Nature Valley Grand Prix. Tulsa obviously was a huge success with Eric’s big win Sunday, but the way the whole team performed all weekend was amazing. We were never caught on the back […]

A Real Barn Burner…

By: Dr. Eric Marcotte This weekend I wanted to compete in the Barn Burner 104 mile mtb race in Flagstaff, AZ. I thought it a great time to not have a lot of pressure and get out of the 110+degree temperatures arriving in Phoenix/Scottsdale. Coming off of racing 6 races in the last 2 weeks, […]
