Can you name the 10 original riders that were on United?

Who appeared in our first ever print ad?

When did you first hear about/notice United?
When I got a free copy of “Don’t Matter” with my Ride UK Subscription. That was pretty damn awesome!

What year did you start riding?

What first got you into riding?
I used to skateboard a lot before I got into riding street/skateparks on a BMX bike. Hitting up spots on my board eventually evolved into doing the same shit on my bike and I just started having more fun riding BMX. I was also fortunate enough to live in city with a strong BMX scene and it was really motivating to see older guys killing it.
