Etnies TM John Povah let me know he was hooking up Tate after he left Lotek earlier this month and was kind enough to put together some good words about him. Look for Tate’s comment underneath that…

“In a sport dominated by trends and peer pressure, it’s refreshing to see someone doing his own thing. To me, Tate brings the ‘Freestyle’ back to BMX freestyle and I’ve been a fan for a while… Maybe it’s the Salt Lake City air or just viewing things through a fresh set of eyes, but I’m definitely excited and appreciate that Tate’s down to rep etnies… Good times ahead.” —John Povah, etnies TM.

“I’m thrilled to be supported by such a legandary company and would like to thank Povah and everyone at etnies for this opportunity.” —Tate Roskelley
