Yokohama is proud to announce our partnership with Nitro Circus, the world’s most successful action sports brand. Yokohama is the exclusive tire of the Nitro Circus Live US Tour and Nitro World Games, and we sponsor two Nitro Circus athletes who share our belief in pushing the limits of performance.
A native of Australia, Williams first hit the global action sports stage in 2006 with a third-place X Games performance. In 2009 he won a gold medal in Freestyle, the first ever non-American to do so. Williams has since added three more X Games medals and world-firsts including the cliffhanger flip, the ruler flip 360 heel clicker, and the Flying Dutchman.

Foster rides BMX with determination and focus matching his considerable technical precision and big-air skills. The Redlands, California native has several world firsts on his resume, including the game-changing triple tailwhip. He was also one of the first athletes to land a triple backflip in BMX, and is one of only a few riders regularly attempting the trick, a Nitro Circus Live highlight.
