Hi, my name is Elliott Banks-Browne. My discipline is MX1. My friends call me EBB. I was born on 2 March 1990 in Bury St. Edmunds, UK. My special talent is riding my bike well and being a bit of an inspector gadget. My philosophy of life is carpe diem. The most important person in my life is my girlfriend . My favourite food is a nice juicy steak. My favourite music is indie rock, alternative – depends what mood i'm in.


It could be said that Elliott Banks-Browne is of legendary racing stock. His grandfather, John Banks, was a household name in the 1960s and was crowned British champion four times with two world championship runner-up spots. John’s sons, Mark and Justin, followed him into the paddock – Justin winning several British schoolboy motocross championships and Mark victorious in the 125cc British motocross championship.

Elliott has taken up the motocross mantle, representing the third generation of Banks in the sport. He was taken to his first motocross meeting at just five months old, and by the age of six was already racing a Kawasaki automatic 50cc. At 12-years-old, Elliott was competing in the British schoolboy championships, eventually taking the title in 2005 at the age of 15.

In 2012, Elliott took his first British Championship title in the MX2 class, and successfully defended his title the next year. For 2014, he is going up for the MX1 class, and showing real confidence: "I think I can do better on it than I have done on the MX2". He has got his eyes set on the 2014 British MX1 Championship title!
