The sponsor changes for 2017 are starting to trickle in now. It looks like Greg Illingworth will not be riding for Fox Europe in 2017. It sounds like this one was an expected parting and everything is on good terms, though. We would imagine we’ll still be seeing a ton of Greg in 2017, and that’s always a good thing!
“After 4 amazing years I am no longer riding for @foxheadeurope. I had some of my best times with this crew and the credits from our Ride to Glory 2013 video shows a bunch of that.
Fox have cut their Europe BMX program for 2017. While it’s sad to see a brand with such deep BMX roots struggle to stay connected to it, I am incredibly grateful for everything they have done for me, everything I have learned through them and everyone I met along the way. Massive thanks and shout out to these people in particular: @sirmerlin @brodevosloo @joy_bethany @limalitw @mattpriest321 @leofortedesign @fraserbyrne #bmx #grateful #powerrangers”
