Postby Melissa_Theuriau on Sat 28/Apr/07 8:52am

Marrying traditional views and modern expectations in cycling was a challenge BikeNZ's new high performance director, Mark Elliott, could not turn down.

Elliott has eleven years of experience within high performance sport in New Zealand from a variety of positions and is currently Performance Director for the New Zealand Winter Performance Programme where he has successfully developed a sustainable model to support the high performance outcomes for winter sports through to the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Elliott worked for Triathlon New Zealand from 1996 to 2004, where he was High Performance Director from 2000 to 2004. Under his direction, New Zealand triathletes won two Olympic medals and six world championship titles.

generally speaking, wouldnt athletes be "higher performing" if they didnt have to pay their own way to major races, rather than bikenz paying someone to tell them to "go faster" :huh:
