Wienerschnitzel, Home of America’s Favorite Chili Dog, is proud to announce its latest partnership with professional BMX rider, Andy Buckworth, for the 2016 season. As part of its ongoing commitment to support the action sports community, Wienerschnitzel is continuing to partner with influential athletes and has officially made Buckworth a member of the Wienerfam, an affectionate term Wienerschnitzel uses to describe its close-knit family of supporters.
“This collaboration with Andy has been on our radar for a while now, and we’re super excited to announce his partnership with Wienerschnitzel,” says Rico Ferrante, chief visionary officer. “He is a great friend of ours and a key asset to our growing team. We have some exciting projects lined up with Andy and we wish him nothing but the best during the 2016 season.”
An Australian-born athlete, Buckworth is an accomplished Big Air rider and a young gun bringing new tricks to major park course contests including X Games, where he medaled as only the second rider ever to land a double front flip. In addition to Big Air competitions, Buckworth will be on the 2016 Nitro Circus Tour alongside leading action sports athletes including Travis Pastrana.
“I’m stoked to join the Wienerfam as they have been huge supporters of the action sports industry,” Buckworth says. “We have the potential to do great things together and I look forward to an awesome year with Wienerschnitzel.”
