The BMX world was blindsided today with the news that Albert Mercado has stepped down from the Kink Bikes Pro team. Word around the camp fire is that Albert might have something in the works, so we will all be anxiously awaiting to see what he has going one. Until then, hit the jump to see what he had to say about it.
And… while you are here refresh yourself on how rad Albert is by watching the video above (and below)!
After almost a decade of riding for @kinkbikes the time has come for us to part ways. It’s been an amazing time riding, traveling, and hanging out with people that have become some of my lifelong friends. Unforgettable memories and friendships that can’t be rattled by life’s struggles is what I’m most grateful for. Shout out to everyone at Kink that made these years of good times possible. I couldn’t have thought of a better way to spend my time on Kink. It’s been real. On that note, It’s time to move forward and see what the world has in store for me! Thanks again Kink for everything! Ph: @bakosphoto #bmx #bmxiswhatyoumakeit thanks for all the love everyone.
And for the sake of it, rewatch Al’s split section in Intervention…
