“3 podiums in a row takes Elliot to 3rd overall in the Downhill World Cup”
We are stoked for our Junior athlete Elliot Heap.
In only his 2nd full year of racing, Elliot has managed to podium at the final 3 world cups and take 3rd overall in the points standings. It’s a remarkable achievement for the young lad from Wigan.
It’s been a huge learning curve for Elliot, a huge transition from his racing MX to racing downhill world cups in only 2 years. Elliot potential was spotted by Team CRC manager Nigel Page, who loaned him his bike to try downhill racing 3 years ago (Elliot promptly won both races, including a BDS race at Llangollen).
Congratulations Elliot from us all at Nukeproof.
