Is there anything Eliot Jackson doesn't do?

Eliot is a man that wears many hats in the bike industry. Whether it's racing, running the Grow foundation or commentating on downhill - he certainly keeps himself busy. Alicia and I caught up with him in Whistler during Crankworx.

It turns out the photo I discuss isn't on Pinkbike. However, after some quick googling, I found the legendary speed tuck here. Credit to Fraser Britton for the great shot.


Featuring a rotating cast of the editorial team and other guests, the Pinkbike podcast is a weekly update on all the latest stories from around the world of mountain biking, as well as some frank discussion about tech, racing, and everything in between.

 Spoke to him after the 2016 at the World Champs in Val di Sole where his rear wheel exploded for no reason after a perfect landing of the Trentino jump. He is probably the most relaxed and genuinely friendly WC rider I'ver ever spoke with.

 Elliot is one of those rare people where you can hear his smile in his voice. Seems like an awesome guy.

 Just to be clear, when I say stylish, I don't mean his wardrobe. I mean his smooth, MX influenced, smooth, floating, beautiful to watch style - not house slippers although that's cool.

 Yo Eliot the LA pump track is so sick dude. I know it’s not officially open, but the community loves it. Albeit a lot of skater and scooter kids but it’s all good.

 I mean, I’d say this totally correlates with the access issues Eliot was talking about.

 Elliot has to be one of the best ambassadors for our sport that there has been! Really nice, super positive guy and somehow also really down to earth. This was a really enjoyable episode.

 That was the best interview I've heard in memory. Elliot sounds so humble and accessible...yet wildly competent. Good stuff crew. Have him back often please.

 I'm not sure if this is where to post this, and I don't mean to say that any of these presenters are bad at all. But where is Levy?

 One of the most stylish, if not the most stylish riders in the history of the sport and a super nice dude.
