Our Riders

Darcy Saville

Hey I’m Darcy.

I’m a test pilot, team rider and ambassador for Elk MTB. I’m also a Nahguard, TwoUp Bike Co. and BikeCollect ambassador and team rider. I love the sport as it’s a great way to meet new people or have a laugh with your mates.

Francis ELK MTB

Francis has been riding mountain bikes for the last 13 years and is a keen racer. He loves being involved in the WA mountain bike community and can be found on the Perth trails most weekends when he’s not racing in the WA Gravity Enduro series. As a recent father, he has made the lazy switch to the Ebike class for most races and is hoping to get over East for some national races once life gets back to normal.


Francis owns Frankd MTB Apparel and rides in the BuyCycles Carine race team. 

Patrick ELK MTB

Patrick Trewenack, Team rider for Empire Cycles and Elk.

I’m a 37 year old that just loves to ride. I have been riding bikes my whole life. Started out on the BMX building jumps all around the streets. Then took it to the skateparks till I found mountain biking. I was 20 on holidays in Canada when I put my leg over a Mtb. Just rode for fun until my good friend opened Empire Cycles and started entering the Xco’s and Wa Gravity Enduro Series and haven’t looked back.

My name is Julian and I’m a 17 year old enduro racer from Orange NSW. I am a team rider for Elk and Rola Australia. I started racing in 2022 and have seen massive progress with my most recent achievement being 10th in the state in the U19s category. I couldn’t imagine a life without mountain biking, it has helped me in every aspect of life and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me in this amazing sport.
