I’ve crossed paths with Brian a couple times over the years, but even though I didn’t know him well, stuff like this is still insanely hard to post. Escondido local Brian Itzaina passed away yesterday and his friend John Castellana made this quick video to celebrate some laughs and some pedals grinds with him. My sincere condolences go out to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Brian.

Please, please, please…if you’re having issues or some crazy thoughts, reach out to your riding friends. They’ll be there for you.


“in loving memory of Brian Itzaina. we will miss you homie keep riding in heaven”
