Vans Europe proudly welcomes South African Bmx rider Greg Illingworth to the family.
The 27 year old all-round shredder from Johannesburg already has a strong name in the
international Bmx community and made a move to Newcastle, UK just last year to focus
even more on his riding and other projects.
Greg will join riders like Ben Hennon, Bruno Hoffmann, or Kevin Kalkoff in the European
Bmx team and all of them are stoked to call Greg their team mate now.
TM Andy Zeiss: “Having Greg in the team is just great and I couldnt be happier.
! ! ! Beside his unique an full throttle riding style he brings a lot of
personality and energy to the team. He represents the perfect image
what Vans stands for and next to the other 11 guys on the team I can
now say that we have a hell of a dirty dozen, haha!“
– Welcome to the family Greg!
