Eliot Jackson is a professional mountain biker on the Santa Cruz Bicycles team. Eliot grew up in Oklahoma racing motocross with his brother, later moving to California. At the age of 18, he found his passion for mountain biking, and shortly after, he knew he was going to become a UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Racer. Not only was Eliot successful in that endeavor, but he has also become an extraordinary advocate and positive influence, standing for equality in the cycling industry.
In August 2020, Eliot launched the Grow Cycling Foundation in effort to promote education, access, and opportunities that increase diversity and inclusion in cycling.
“Biking builds so much confidence and creates some community. I met some of my best friends riding bikes, so I think it can only be good.”
