This day was bound to come eventually. As of mid-May I will be leaving Sunday Bikes. This was obviously a difficult decision for me since I co-founded Sunday with Odyssey back in 2005 and I’ve been working on it every day for the last 9 years. It’s truly been an amazing experience learning the bike industry, traveling with the team and most important of all, meeting so many BMXers from around the world.
My main goal with Sunday was to do interesting things with every aspect of the company and if you’ve been paying attention since we’ve started then you know that we’ve done that many times over. Sunday has always been in great hands with everyone at Odyssey/Full Factory standing behind it, and that’s where it is going to continue to grow, with lots of exciting projects already in development for 2015.
So, now I’m off to new creative adventures. I just want to say that I’m truly honored by all the people that supported and rode a Sunday during my time with the company. Even after all these years, I’m completely stoked when I see a person riding one. BMX as a whole has never seemed brighter when you consider how amazing riders are today and when you look at the progress of the younger riders it’s clear that things are going to only get crazier. I’m very excited to cheer it all on from the sidelines.

Cory Foust can blast really high airs and wreck shop on a pool table. He also just so happens to be celebrating his birthday today! You know he’s celebrating by beating people in pool at Side Bar in Austin. Have a good one Cory! Photo Rick Crossman.
After 2.5 years in Austin, Seth Peterson is moving back home to Minneapolis. It’s been a fun time filming him at all the wild spots he has found during that time. Good luck Seth! Can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve when you get back to the North Star state. Decade photo by Rick Crossman.
Garrett Reeves was in Austin recently and nose wheelied the big Hubba ledge at House Park. He didn’t take the easy route by coming in from the side, but rather went straight over the top. So sick! Luckily caught photo by Rick Crossman.

The Least Most posted a good photo of me doing a wallride on my Wave C. Rick Crossman shot the photo while we were on one of our many random searching adventures outside of Austin. We also shot this photo and this one too.
Here’s a rad panoramic shot of Rick Crossman riding the 2012 Aaron Ross EX complete at the New Braunfels Skatepark. Rick said he’s a huge fan of the Freeze stem that comes on the compeletes this year.
Well, I’m officially allowed to return to normal activities according to my doctor. After a month and half of being off my bike fighting a Staph infection and then having surgery to remove a hematoma, I’m more than happy to be back. Not sure my doctor understands what my typical “normal” activities are, but I’ll just take it easy anyway. Tire slide photo by Rick Crossman.
