Jordan Williams Moves on from Madison Saracen

Dec 12, 2022
by Ed Spratt  

Junior World Champion Jordan Williams has announced that he will be heading to a new team as he moves up to Elites in 2023.

Jordan Williams had an extremely successful two years racing as a Junior regular going head to head against Jackson Goldstone and secured the title of Junior World Champion in Les Gets this year. After a successful period with Will Longden and the Madison Saracen team, he will be moving to a fresh setup in the new year.

bigquotesMy time has come to an end at Madison Saracen, I have made the decision to move on.
I’d firstly like thank Will Longden for helping me achieve many of my goals and for his knowledge on and off the bike, I really appreciate everything he has done for me!

And of course a massive thanks to all the sponsors, team members and teammates for all the support and good times over the last few years.

I’m really excited for the future and for what’s coming next!
Once again thank you Madison Saracen, see you at the races.
Jordan Williams

We don't know exactly where Jordan will end up next year but we have heard that it could be a move to Specialized.

 Trek has some deep pockets and just lost Charlie from the team, Jordan would do great with Loris and would keep him on his toes too!

 Maybe the Meier-Smith brothers will be on Trek next year....

 Trek were a man up anyway from having to keep Reece when he won world champs. So in this era of tightening belts, I don't expect them to replace Charlie.

 It would be amazing to see him on the same team as Loic and Finn.

But thinking about it, do we know when Finn's contact is up? He might be looking for a move somewhere that he would be no 1?

 I have no clue where Finn would end up. NOR COn I speculate. But a man can dream!!!!!

 Finn posted on a photo his instagram story today with the specialized prototype DH bike in it, so I don't think he is looking to move teams anytime soon.

 Who’s got the biggest cheque book! Or BACS / Applepay as cheque books are pretty out dated…
  • 5 1
 Considering the state of pay in even world cup MTB... the cheque book won't need to be very big at all.

 Poor Saracen. Would have been rad to have him move up to Elite's on their bike. C'est la vie. Good luck though Jordan. I cannot WAIT until next season.

 I know rider input matters a hell of a lot, meaning a good rider can ride most any bike really well... Having said that, to find a bike that you can ride so well you're World Champion... May be worthwhile sticking with that bike. Just my armchair opinion. Let's hope he made the right choice!

 All you need is :
A team with the right atmosphere/personality for success
Winning Frame/suspension system
Frame that fits you perfectly ( eg Danny Hart at Maddison )
Winning wheel tyre combo (eg Jack Moir)
The combo above not overtaken by other brand (MS Mondaker 1,2,3 2016 world champs
Enough money to live and train optimally
Of just a shit load of money so you don’t care. (But they always do) Im feeling to say …..

 In about six months we may see him in action - depending on how accessible the new TV coverage is going to be. Any updates from the broadcast team?

 BikePark Ponte de limas posted a photo of Jordan's new bike then quickly deleted it. Surprise, surprise, it's running an Ohlins fork. JP

 In this context I would say they are interchangeable.

 He’s already signed to Specialized - surprised there’s any debate. Guess it will be announced shortly.

 Weird - downvoted for saying something that’s 100% true. The bottom half of PB is very strange.

 Probably downvoted because you signed off your comment on pinkbike with your initials for no reason whatsoever
