Here’s some news we did NOT see coming. After 10 years, Tate Roskelley has decided to part ways with Volume Bikes. Tate explained the reasons behind his decision on Instagram, and we have it below for you to check out. Tate mentions he’s been putting in all his effort for the new “Headlights” video we’re working on, and we guarantee you will be blown away by what he has for his section!

After 10 years, I've decided to part ways with @volumebikes . I wish the separation didn't have such a personal bitter ending. But, after taking a complete pay cut for the last two years in hopes to give the younger guys an opportunity, I was left overlooked. It might seem petty but the fact they took my name off the Instagram bio and website without talking to me first, shows the lack of camaraderie and solidified my decision. Being told "they didn't know what I've been up to lately" was a complete slap in the face (especially since 3 other volume riders have parts in the same video I've been working on). I've always been the kind of guy to keep my mouth shut and be humble, but I feel it's time to speak from the heart. Maybe my shit just got too weird for them, and if that's the case…I'll take it as a creative compliment. I've been more focused, and riding better than I ever have. Moving forward….I've just filmed (in my opinion) one of my best video sections of my career for the upcoming @ridebmx #ridebmxheadlights video. I can't wait for you guys to check it out. Best of luck moving forward to the current team, I've been lucky to work with them. We will see what the future holds for me and my riding, but I truly feel it can only get better. Thanks to anyone who appreciates and is a fan of my riding.
