All this recent good news is so refreshing, isn’t it? Albert has been reppin’ Shadow for what, five years? It’s great to see him finally get the much-deserved bump up. 2014 is gonna be a good year for my dude Al!

“It’s been a long time coming but today we are proud to announce that Albert Mercado has been bumped to The Shadow Conspiracy pro team. Albert has been with us for a long time and has definitely proven himself to us and to the masses by being everyone’s favorite rider’s, favorite rider. Expect big things from Al in the future including a kickass section in the new Shadow DVD. Congrats Bert!”
