Directly from Brian himself. This comes as a shock to many, I’m sure:

After many great years with Etnies, I will no longer be a part of the team. It’s been a pleasure working with some amazing people at Etnies. I will miss my Etnies teammates greatly but luckily this is BMX and I’m sure I’ll be seeing you guys somewhere around the globe soon. Thanks for having me as a part of the family. I have plenty of good memories, shared tons of laughs and always appreciated helping the BMX program. Best wishes moving forward. 2013 is going to be amazing. There’s some excited stuff I’ve been working on for a couple months and it will be announced any day now.
