Motocross plays a huge part in the Banks family history, spanning three very successful generations.
It all started with the legendary John Banks, Elliott’s grandfather, whose talent has passed down through the generations.
John was a house hold name in the 1960’s being crowned British Champion four times and world runner up in 64’ and ’66, and a household name when motocross was played on the ITV every Saturday afternoon! Now its played on Sky EVERY week!
Johns sons, Mark and Justin, followed in their father’s footsteps into motocross with a great deal of success. Mark became 125cc British Motocross champion and was runner up in the 250 British championship. He also competed on the world stage achieving 7th place, while Justin won several british schoolboy motocross championships.
