Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, With Pros. – Ep. 9 Mt. Graham w/ Eric Marcotte

Love this series.

“Only premium fuel in the hot rod”

“Want some Oreos?”

We like to think of Eric Marcotte as “The People’s Champ”. For most cycling fans, his claim to fame is winning BOTH the US Pro National Road Race and the US Pro National Criterium while maintaining is full-time chiropractic practice – seeing dozens of clients each week. In Episode 9, we travel to Safford, AZ, home of the Arizona State Hill Climb Championship on Mount Graham that twists up more than 6,000 ft of elevation gain on what appears to be the wet dream of a civil engineer. Eric chats with State Bicycle Co. team newcomer, Chris Tolley, on unorthodox training methods, music, and nutrition.

About the Series: “Riding Fixed, Up Mountains, With Pros.” The concept is simple, we wanted to get to know our favorite Pro cyclists and what better way to conduct a natural interview than on the bike, taking them out of their comfort zone just a bit by doing in with NO GEARS (and no brakes sometimes).
