Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays!

Thanks for a great year. I feel truly blessed. I have a healthy family and own a wheel company which I love.

Williams Cycling had a great 2008. The word is getting out! Athletes are starting to understand our “direct-to-consumer” business model and realize that by eliminating a couple layers of markup we can deliver very high-end performance wheels at a deep discount to retail.

One of our business goals is to give back to the cycling community. Williams sponsors as many top athletes as we possibly can. I personally get a tremendous enjoyment from helping these athletes achieve their personal and professional goals. Some 2008 highlights include:

Ken Hanson: Elite National Criterium Champion
Rachael Lloyd: 2008 USA Worlds Cyclo-cross Team
Amy Dombroski: 2008 U23 National Cyclo-cross Champion
Daniel Holloway: Double Stage Winner “Tour of Pennsylvania”
Sterling Magnell: 2nd overall, Superweek.
Adam Myerson: World Cup Cyclo-cross talent and Race Promoter

Williams will offer free neutral wheel support at over 30 races in 2009.

Williams will sponsor its first NRC level Elite Men’s team, Webcor / Alto Velo.

Williams wheel display booth will be all over the country in 2009.

One new addition to the Williams lineup will be a small grass roots Williams Factory Team located in the New England States and headed up by Rich Grant. Rich will manage a small team of 11 athletes racing for the love of the sport. These athletes will race at a variety of levels and plan to spread the word about Williams Wheels.

Look for new and exiting products coming out of our shop in 2009.

Thanks again and Happy Holidays,

Keith Williams
