2009 Bike Race Highlights

 

Evan Elkin - check his OBRA.org rider history.

Evan had some great wins and top finishes in 2009, and you can see he just rides and races a lot, putting in the miles and consistent work. Portland Twilight Criterium Pro 1/2 second place finish stands out as does Evan's track racing and Madison race results. If you aren't familiar with the Madison track race, here's a video from the Alpenrose Velodrome Challenge 2009 Madison. The Madison is a team race and the racers do a 'sling' to accelerate their partner when they switch off. It's a great training ride and you can see they go quite fast!

Philadelphia International Cycling Championship
June 6, 2009
Evan finished 15th
"Mike went off the back in the final circuits as well, but Jim and Evan road great together and Evan was able to sprint for 15th place. I guess he was on Andre Greipel's wheel(the eventual winner) with 1k to go but someone put him {Evan} into a curb and he was forced to stop pedaling. The race was really sketchy this year and there were tons of crashes."

Fifth place for Land Rover-ORBEA's Northey in stage 2 at Gila
"The plan for the development team was simple, go on the offense and team manager "on the bike" Evan Elken gave the marching orders to his seven young riders."

Butler wins Silverton Road Race; Camut delivers for Land Rover-ORBEA
"They put the wood to me with six miles to go and that was it," Sheppard said. "Evan dragged me along for a few k, and then I was just done. That was it." With teammates Camut and Van Uden up the road, Elken still had to reach deep to hang onto his third-place finish. "I was riding with Chris Sheppard, third and fourth on the road," Elken said. "And all of the sudden we see a chase group coming. So I had to ride my tail off to get to the finish for third."
