It was announced last week that Sean Burns had parted ways with Metal Bikes. Today, Alex Liiv announced that he has also left the team. Here's his statement from the Metal site - "Today mark the last day I declare that I am riding for Metal Bikes. Yes, it is true. I am leaving many friends and fun-filled times. I have been on the Metal Program 1,187 days and I feel like it's time to turn over a new leaf and move on with new projects. I love Jimmy (Levan) and the whole Metal Bikes team, so no bad beef; no bad reflections on any of the dudes I have met and hung with. Times change, people change. Metal was my first frame/parts sponsor and will always have a place in my heart. Thanks to all the blokes for the good times and, most of all, Jimmy for looking after my sorry ass for this long. Thank you to all, and good luck, and goodbye to Metal Bikes.
