InForm MAKE are pleased to announce the signing of Nathan Elliott for the 2019 season.
Elliott will join InForm MAKE off the back of two exciting seasons with Bennelong Swiss Wellness where he gathered some valuable international experience. In the past two seasons, Elliott has pinned on the numbers in France, Belgium, Holland and China. To add, he has achieved domestic wins of the highest caliber. The 27-year-old Victorian will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the team and will be key in assisting the younger riders in the squad.
“Hopefully I can bring what I’ve learned racing the NRS and internationally with Bennelong Swiss Wellness the last couple of years and help develop the guys as riders and guide the team to some more wins,” Elliott said.
“The team is quite young, so I’m looking forward to taking a leadership role on the road with the guys! Which is something I think a lot of the NRS teams lack.”
“The team has grown so quick in only a couple of years, so I’m looking forward to helping them continue that progression and having some fun.”
Elliott is a two-time winner of Australia’s longest race, the Melbourne-Warrnambool, winning the race back to back in 2016 and 2017, the only rider to do so in the modern era of the grueling 277km Aussie classic.
If he hadn’t already, he stamped his mark as the Australian classic specialist this year winning the Grafton-Inverell, ahead of InForm MAKE rider Raphael Freienstein in a two-up sprint.
When asked about his goals for 2019 Elliott said,
“Personally, my first focus will be towards the Aussie summer. Obviously the Warnie (Melbourne- Warrnambool) is a race I love, so I can’t wait to get back there after winning it the last two years. I’m also looking forward to giving the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race a crack if the team is fortunate enough to earn a spot for that.”
