Almond posted this up this morning. All I can think of is that the “riding down different paths” is a huge hint to where he may end up. I could be off, though…

Creating a team is an exciting process and here at Almond we didn’t just choose our riders without love or via some manufactured process. We thought long and hard about those who would suit the brand well, those who would fit in with how we think and those who would be stoked on things we did like the things they did. Shane Weston has been with Almond from the beginning and not once has he disappointed, his style and creativity is unmatched in BMX. We are totally sad to let him go but at the same time we understand how individuals must make different choices in their riding careers and we all know that riding down different paths lead to different experiences and because of that we admire him. All the best buddy!
