After a stressful and uncertain 18 months, athletes are eager to get back to toeing the line. Whether you’re an amateur who loves running in your local charity 5k or an elite athlete who is competing at the highest levels, there’s nothing more exciting than waking up on race day!

For some of the elite athletes who utilize ElliptiGO bikes as a part of their training, the excitement, the nerves, the celebration of race day is returning in a major way from June 18 to 27 at the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials in Eugene, Oregon.

The Olympic Games is one of the most-watched events in the world, and, for sports like Track & Field, it’s seen as the highest level an athlete can reach. The Games take place once every four years and in most cases, allow a maximum of 3 athletes from each country per discipline. For the United States, that selection process for the Track & Field Team is decided through a Trials Championship.

Making the team requires physical and mental sacrifices to put yourself in contention. Elliptical and stand-up bikes help these athletes lower their risk of injury while building strength and endurance. ElliptiGO is proud to have created a product that’s become an invaluable resource for an increasing number of professional athletes, including many who are headed to the Olympic Trials.

Here are some of the highest-ranked athletes coming into these events who utilize ElliptiGO bikes:

In the Women’s 5,000 Meters, Flagstaff-based Rachel Schneider is ranked 6th with a time of 14:52. Followed closely by Furman University alum and current Brooks Beasts athlete Allie Buchalski in 7th with her 14:57 time.

In the Women’s 10,000 Meters, Phoenix-based Emily Sisson is ranked 3rd with a time of 30:49, followed closely by 2016 Olympian Emily Infeld in 5th with a 31:08. Rachel Schneider is slated to double back after the 5,000 concludes and give herself a chance at this distance as well. She’s ranked 6th with 31:09. Also in the field are long-time ElliptiGO users Sara Hall and Stephanie Bruce, who both competed at the Marathon Trials last February.

In the Men’s 3,000 Meter Steeplechase, Michigan-based, former NCAA Champion Mason Ferlic is ranked 3rd with a time of 8:18.

In the Women’s 800 Meters, there will be a couple of local favorites with Eugene-based OTC Elite members Hanna Green and Chanelle Price, who are ranked 4th and 7th respectively. They will be joined by 2016 Olympic finalist Kate Grace, who is ranked 6th and has been a longtime ElliptiGO user, now part of the Team Boss training group that ElliptiGO supports in Boulder. In the Women’s 1500 Meters, Kate’s teammate Cory McGee and True Blue Elite member Shannon Osika will be among the favorites with their 8th and 4th respective rankings. Both athletes are also slated to double back in the 800m later in the schedule.

Natasha Hastings – 400m

In the sprints and jump events, 2012 Olympic medalist Erik Kynard is ranked 5th in the High Jump and 2016 Olympic gold medalist Natasha Hastings will be competing in the 400 Meters.

As one of the most decorated athletes in the sport, Allyson Felix is already the only Track & Field athlete to win 6 Olympic gold medals along with her 13 gold medals at the World Championships. She will hope to make her fifth Olympic Games in the 400 Meters and/or the 200 Meters.

    It should be an excellent 8 days! Hoping to see some GO athletes grab a spot on the Team.
    On my way there now – will be riding every morning if any other GO enthusiasts are in Eugene…
