About Elite Bicycles:
During his four-year professional triathlon career, Elite owner David Greenfield felt top-level cyclists needed a viable alternative to the mass produced, off-the-peg frame sizes and tubing offered by the major bicycle companies. He challenged himself to build affordable bicycles with custom sizes using the absolute highest grade aluminum tubing at prices competitive to standardized bikes being sold to top-level athletes in both the pro and amateur ranks.
Thousands of miles ridden on ill-fitting bikes with substandard frame materials led him to realize exactly what design and materials worked best, both for comfort and performance. Elite was formed to take advantage of the industry-wide technology boom which allowed smaller builders to compete with larger companies without being at a technological disadvantage. As a result, Elite now buys the highest quality tubing, uses the top welders and paint houses in the industry, and employs the absolute best design characteristics, all while offering customized tubing options and paint finishes at prices competitive with larger bike manufacturers.
Crafted in the USA from American-made parts, Elite uses Easton Ultra-Light and Easton Scandium tubing, as well as U.S. made Edge Composites carbon — the highest rated lightweight aluminum in the world. Each frame’s airfoil design is also wind-tunnel tested to ensure optimal performance. Complete bike packages are built using only the highest quality components. In addition to building custom fit bikes for athletes looking for an edge, a full range of standard-sized frames featuring the same design elements are also available at dealers worldwide,
Elite riders share a common bond of appreciation for their bikes, and Elite prides itself on maintaining close relationships with its growing family of riders. Elite actively seeks feedback from its customers and is excited by and shares in each individual’s personal accomplishments — often as they happen, as the crew is present to support the athletes at many of the important races around the world.
Elite is proud to be the bike of choice for many professional athletes, including ITU World Cup Champions, Ironman Champions, top ten Olympians, and Duathlon World Champions. Each of our athletes ride Elite bicycles not because they are paid to (Elite does not provide free equipment), but because they believe Elite gives them a critical edge they need to win.
By bringing together top frame designs, materials, welders, painters, and components, Elite builds bicycles that deliver maximum performance and value for every customer — from professional athlete to weekend warrior.

Color Coded Course Directions
Rev3 is improving our signs! For our Rev3 Quassy race we will be color coordinating our signs and arrows for each of the courses. PLEASE NOTE it is your responsibility to know the course on race day. We will have the roads appropriately marked on race day but please educate yourself so on race day you will not be surprised.
Olympic REV BIKE course will be marked with Green Signs and Green Arrows on the ground. The arrows on the group will be made with bright green duct tape and Rev3 signs and spray chalk on the ground. If you see those you are on the right path for the Olympic.
OlympicREV RUN course will be marked with Yellow signs and yellow duct tape arrows. We will also have Yellow spray arrows with Rev3 signs on the ground. Make sure you look and follow these signs and arrows.
We want you to look good while racing with Rev3. You will notice in your packet pickup that we have given everyone tattoo’s for your body marking for race day. Make sure you put these on BEFORE race morning. THERE WILL BE NO BODY MARKING ON RACE MORNING.
Simple procedure, you should have been given 2 tattoos with your bib number on them. These two numbers go on the upper part of your arm between your shoulder and elbow. Place one bib number on your right arm and the other bib number tattoo on your left arm. Make sure the Rev3 “R” is at the top and the “Pilot Flying J” logo is at the bottom.
ou were also instructed to get your age. These tattoos will go on your right calf. Make sure you put your age vertical on your leg. If you are competing in a relay you will add the R to the bottom of your age.
You put these tattoos on just like you would any other temporary tattoo. Take off the plastic coating, place the tattoo on your body and dampen the back with a wet cloth. Hold a damp cloth on the tattoo for about 30 seconds. You should be good to go without having a stranger write on you at 5:00am!
To remove the tattoos post-race try using nail polish remover.
When you pick up your race packet and timing chip at athlete check-in, stop by the chip verification table to ensure that your correct name shows up on the computer screen.
You must wear your timing chip at all times while you are racing. Fasten it to either ankle with the Velcro strap provided before the swim and leave it on until after you finish the run. Volunteers will help you remove the chip at the finish line. If you do not start the race, you are responsible for returning the chip to timing.
If you drop out or are pulled from the race at any time, turn in your chip to a race official. Failure to do so may disqualify you from participating in future REV3 events. It is essential that we know where you are on the course at all times for your safety and our peace of mind. If you are transported to any medical station, the medical staff will take responsibility for your chip.
Your race chip is a loaner. By picking up your race number and timing chip, you are guaranteeing that you will return the chip to timing, or you will be billed for its replacement. There is a $90 replacement fee for any lost or damaged timing chips.
If you lose your timing chip during the event, you are responsible for a replacement at one of the following locations: swim exit, bike exit or run exit. Volunteers will have extra timing chips at the timing locations above. If you lose your timing chip while on the run course, please notify a timing official immediately after crossing the finish line.
Failure to wear your timing chip on race day, return your chip after the event or pay the replacement cost of your lost chip may disqualify you from future Rev 3 events.
