The Gravity Cartel Signs Eric Carter
The folks at Troyleedesigns are class acts…I have so many good friends over there. I have said it before.. Without Troy I am not sure if I would still be racing or even involved with MTB's… In 96 I sat in his office as he called all the companies that I had tried to get support from and got either a no or a no call back. In his words to them..."I'm starting a MTB team and I need you guys to get behind it" Jimmy Kight, Jimmy Deaton and I were the team and we had a lot of fun… In classic TLD style. Troy, Thank you so much for the support and kind words.

a-r-c The planning of something on that level is big time… Team manager and team owner are big differences… Believe me I have thought about it… Not sure If I its something I would want that much stress. Last years gig was the perfect amount of workload/stress…. I could be on the hill filming the riders and going over lines after and try to help the riders with their mindsets (my favorite part)… But that stuff and just the planning workload that you have as a manager is still exhausting at the end of the season… I can't imagine the stress of things like getting killed at the airport check in for luggage and blowing the budget for the event before you have departed… Just watching "your" teams money go away...Team Owner Stress. I really like what I have lined up with Marin right now and I can see this being a long term deal.

Thanks ambatt, Being hired as a sales guy for Marin one of the first questions I asked was "where is Marin headed as a brand?" Adding Cody Kelley and continued support of The North American Enduro champ Kyle Warner is just part of the plan being hatched for growth at Marin. Will be fun and exciting times these next couple of years under the Marin roof.

John Kovachi was a wheel master…. Always looked forward to a fresh set of them Kovachi Wheels and thanks for putting your personal touches on some of my wheels from you guys.…. As Murryaybmx said, really good to see his art live on through his pupils… My wheel guy now is John Canepa… He was my mechanic at the end of my run with Mongoose and GT and he is one of my best friends…He built the now infamous "Aaron Gwin Leogang wheel" from this years World Cup in Austriia I agree, I think the Marin people are a good group and I think working with them will be a lot of fun.

Thanks herzalot… Big House has his own thing going…. I think he has pulled back from the junior program and is focused on some stuff with ODI and hookit… but I'm not positive.

There are a lot of good people at Specialized… Just because a manager and I don't see things the same way doesn't mean he is automatically bad… I personally think it was a mistake…but its done…and life is to short to dwell on things like that… The Specialized door has closed and this door of opportunity at Marin has opened. I am sure Specialized have a set agenda and goals for their race program for 2015 and for whatever reason they felt it would be best achieved with a new manager… The new manager is a good guy with a ton of experience and currently working at Specialized so its a good fit… I hope the team does well this year and that some of the gel i brought to the program sticks.
