The 2018 sponsor news has been nothing short of surprising so far! United have announced that Nathan Williams is OFF the team…
Our NO FOREIGN LANDS venture to Lyon was @nathan88williams last trip riding for United. As you'll see from the edit, he still put in 110% into it, even though we knew he was leaving the brand. This is testament to who he is as rider and a person. He’s been with the United for 11 years, almost since the very first day. I can’t thank Nathan enough for what he’s done for us over the years. It’s been a pleasure and I wish him all the very best on his journey ahead. – @united_ian #unitedbmx #thanksforeverything
When it comes to sponsor changes, some are expected and some are pretty predictable… However, some are a complete surprise that we never would have imagined. It turns out Nathan Williams will be stepping down from the United team in 2018 after being apart of their team for the past 11 years! We’re not sure what sparked the decision, but it sounds like it was Nathan’s choice based off United’s Instagram post above. We will still see one last video with Nathan riding with United before he’s officially done, and we’re sure it’ll be a banger of a video, too. Does Nathan have a new deal lined up? We haven’t heard anything just yet, but it’s very likely… We can’t imagine a guy like Nathan not having a sponsor being one of the best street riders in the world! We’ll keep you posted when we learn more!
