Press Release: Goodyear Bicycle Tires

First launched in 2018 with official licensed partner, Rubber Kinetics, Goodyear’s brand presence continues to make an impact within the global cycling market. In support of the Goodyear brand, Joel Anderson and Conor Macfarlane are being named as the next riders to join the Wingfoot Alliance global athlete and ambassador program.

Joel, based in South West England, is well known for his unique style and energy on the international freeride circuit along with his video edits. Earning his stripes riding shotgun on his dad’s uplift before taking on the British Downhill Series, Joel certainly knows a thing or two about going fast.

Conor, based in New Zealand, is arguably one of the country’s most successful freerider having competed at the pinnacle of freeriding, the Red Bull Rampage. He is equally at home racing the Enduro World Series, demonstrating his commitment to all things mountain bike.

Joel and Conor join recently announced rider, Olly Wilkins, as part of the Goodyear Wingfoot Alliance global ambassador program to support and represent Goodyear Bicycle Tires. The program exemplifies Goodyear Bicycle Tire’s commitment to creating the top-performing bicycle tires, as well as its support of both professional and grassroots levels of cycling.

Any guesses on who our fourth international pro rider will be?

Goodyear Bicycle Tires is looking to expand the Goodyear Wingfoot Alliance globally at the grassroots level. The Alliance is looking for anyone—from young pinners trying to break through the ranks to veterans learning new tricks. For more information and to sign up for the chance to join the team, visit

 Looking for riders who love skids and wheelies? Well search no longer you lucky ducky. I once did a skid so long I had to change my underwear, and my wheelie skills are so amazing I now only ride a unicycle. So where do I sign to get my fancy flying footwear?

 We can't promise you any fancy flying footwear but your comment made us laugh so much that we're gonna send you a set of tires to try and beat your old record.

 @goodyearbike: to those who claim that spending large portions of your life on pb comments is a bad idea, I'll just quote cam. "it sure seems to be working out pretty darn well for everybody". so uh, about those tires...

 Good vibes all around in this one!
My favorite mtb edits include Conors "Should Conor get into Rampage" and Joels "F*ck you, get pumped!".
This video blends both worlds perfectly! Really really great!
Thank you!

 I had the Goodyear Newton’s on my bike and liked them, CRC had a sell on them and said wth let me try them out. Great casing, grip, and looks I’d buy them again, oh and they were tried in dry loose dirt and hard packed.

 Went riding with Joel and couldn't keep up. Putting it down to the tyres and not the lack of ability.

 I can tell you that they can jump 60meters to flat-ish and not explode. If you are looking for a tire to handle that.
