Since the early days of his career, Brayden Elliott’s Mum Tanya has been his number one supporter. From Brayden’s first race on a PW50, at the age of four, Tanya has watched nervously and proudly from the sidelines. Throughout the highs and lows of motorcycle racing she has supported her son in every way; no matter the injuries, the expense, the time away from home, she has backed Brayden 100% to chase his dream of racing professionally. Whether it’s preparing the food for the event or putting numbers on the pit board, Tanya is always by Brayden’s side as an extremely valuable member of the team and family.
The mechanic, the driver, the logistics manager, the cleaner, the helper and the dad. Grant Elliott is the rock of the team that makes everything possible. Grant has supported Brayden from day one, from teaching Brayden to ride his first motorbike, driving from one side of Australia to the other or working for hours on the bikes and transporter. Grant has always worked hard to insure he can provide Brayden with the best opportunities possible. The family devotes their lives to Brayden Elliott’s racing and chasing the dream.
