It's been an amazing 5 years but I've decided to move on from @sandmbmx and @brinkdistro. Riding for S&M Bikes and Brink Distribution (formerly 1664) has been a dream opportunity and I am incredibly grateful for the chance to do my thing for both companies. Big thanks for @moeller_chris for making this possible and @ibonesaw for being a sick TM at Brink. I'd like to give a special thank you @a.k.a.intrikat, he's the brains behind the Intrikat program at S&M which has had a huge impact on the flatland community. Chad took me under his wing years ago and opened the door for me so I'll always be thankful to him and appreciative of all his hard work. Thanks again !! #bmx #shieldbmx #flatlandbmx 📸📸📸 @mattsaintg

But he was sponsored by S&M through Brink, and with them closing up shop, he stepped down from his position. My brain didn’t go in that direction. It all makes sense now though.
