There are a lot o legitimate deals out there for people who don't race or don' have the results, but are awesome ambassadors for the sport. Because being a good racer doesn't make you by default the best ambassador. To be honest, the ”frameless post on Instagram feels a little bit too much. People become sponsorless all the time and while they are sending resumes to the companies they want to work with, they simply ride something else. Wasn't it a popular thing for some riders (not only from this slice of action sports, but generally) to strap on a pair of Oakleys when they lost their goggle sponsor? Didn't Kobe Bryant make a huge fashion statement in his ”sneaker free agency year” between Adidas and Nike? I'm sure there is somebody out there very willing to sponsor Kirt, just they don't know he is on the market and I'm pretty positive this helps.

I really wish Kirt the best with all my heart, even though my only experience with him wasn't a very nice one and I will mention it, while at it. We were in Kaprun in 2002, Romanian kids to see their dream live for the first time and we wanted to talk to everybody. My buddy met Mike King during the day, so we went looking for him in the evening. When at their pits, Mike was super nice and didn't mind us a bit, he really enjoyed it, Kirt came along and said something like ”Where are these guys from? Romania? I bet they can't even speak English, haha!”. I don't need to mention Kirt was a hero for us too and we knew of him riding on the Specialized team with Palmer and his Yeti days before. Hell, we even had Mountain Dew/Specialized stickers with his name; I actually still have them... But Kirt's AllRide tour was one of the best things to happen to American MTB ever, I need to give him that!

Much luck!

Ahab, I totally agree with you, but keep in mind that Schley's sponsors cater to the German market, a market that always lagged a little bit behind in terms of coolness. Just like in my country there are Boney M and Dr. Alban concerts that are taken seriously, in Germany you can be a bike brand a brag about having Schley on your team. Mag key-taglines ”Das ist Freeride PUR!” ”Der Freerider schechthin” and other cheap ass crap like that.

Holy cow. FIX THIS. Richie Schley has frame sponsor AND a Mercedes deathtruck, and all he ever gave us was dead sailor drops and bad tabletops. Voreis delivers the fun and skill and makes people want to ride.

This is bullshit! People! First and foremost, ”Gerücht” means in German ”rumour”, so those dudes are doing exactly what we are doing here, only they added some nice pictures and presented it as an ”article”. You should not be surprised if their ”sources” ... more »

I feel you, brother! I recently got one in L size after flirting with it for a good while and now that I have it, I can't see a valid reason for owning another newer bike. Otherwise, I'm quite a keeper of old bikes, but the Spank Smoke hardtail was definitely ... more »

Yuri is an idiot who should first learn how to pop a bunnyhop and then be in a video. People who don't know how to bunnyhop should not aspire to be in videos. Thank you.
