When you ride for one company so long you're always linked to it.

Kirt, it's all water under the bridge now and I don't mean to harm you in any way. I believe you did, you do and you will still be doing a heap of positive stuff towards the mountain biking community. You crushed our hearts a little bit that night, but we weren't even stuck in that...more

If you guys want to help him out go follow him on Instagram and other Social outlets. That is one metric the bike companies look at when someone isn't posting results in contests or big vid parts.

Sorry I was a butt hole 14 years ago! The funny thing is why the hell would I even say that? Ive been around the world and know not everyone speaks english. I probably was breaking the ice with you, sorry you took it the wrong way.

This was supposed to be positive post. Ive said this before, When you are in catalogs, have magazine ads, develop product, coach, and get pro podiums, you are doing your other sponsors a disfavor by promoting something for free. Providing content, writing articles, volunteer trail work, etc, is how I hustle for my sponsors. Insta ballin is what I do! Don't hate the player, hate the game!

Spomer, thank you for always having my back!

The story is, I haven't had a bike sponsor for about 3 years. When budgets cuts hit Specialized marketing in 2013, my AllRide tour and Allride Jr development got dropped. I was super bummed but wanted to stay on the brand so I got a frame from friends that worked there in hopes budget would come back. I sent out proposals but teams were filled and I was branded. It was really no prob because I have great sponsors like Sram, FOXMTB, Clif Bar, and Camelbak that stepped up and kept me going. I do feel obligated to have a bike sponsor to finish that circle of sharing content and promoting my brands together, so a frame sponsor was needed. This past year Drew from Declinemag had a Canyon laying around so I figure I try something new and kept the shred alive! Season is done and I had fun. No pity for me tho, I've been dreaming for 22years, and will keep dreaming sponsors or not! I love this shit!

Thanks for kind words everyone and thank you Spomer for watching out for Homies!!
