Alex Marin shared on Instagram today that he will be leaving The Brigade Team in early July, writing that the team has been focused on developing a new bike and suspension but he would prefer to focus instead on his own racing progression. The team has been at the forefront in developing the new Production Privee downhill bike
after partnering with Production Privee
for the 2021 season.
It sounds like he has likely found a new team or at least some support, as he also updated his Instagram story with a 'censored' banner over his t-shirt.
The Brigade Team posted that "Alex Marin decided to leave the team during the authorised transfer period in early July" before copying Alex's statement above and wishing him well. The team also posted a welcome announcement for the team's new addition, Johan Garcin.
Production Privee also shared a brief well-wishes post: "Looking forward to seeing you back on the tracks @alex3marin! Thank you and best of luck!"
We will update you when we have more information about Alex's new team.
