Matty Long has officially parted ways with Volume. This comes slightly less than one week after it was announced Stevie Churchill had also left the brand. Is there a connection? Who knows. Anyways, here's a statement from Volume TM Mike Mastroni regarding Matty's departure -

"As Matty’s good friend growing up, to his team manager now, it bums me out significantly to see him go. Without going into great detail, what it all boils down to basically is both parties failing to see eye-to-eye for quite some time. We never wanted to lose him and I personally tried my best to iron out some of the wrinkles and look out for his best interests but unfortunately he decided it was his time to go. Matty is an amazing rider and we wish him nothing but the best of luck with any future endeavors, and of course would like to thank him for all the support & great times."

We'll keep you posted on any future sponsorship news on Matty.

    before you call me a "scum bag" on a subject you really don't know much about. me getting a signature frame that didn't even come in a top tube size I ride among other things was the last straw for me as a rider wanting to represent the brand, thanks.

    These things happen. Don't sleep on our current team lineup just yet. Enns, Raban, Broc, Lil-D, Hosselton, Roskelley and a growing B-team is nothing to laugh at. Get ready!

    Agreed 100%. I think the world still has new clue how damn good Broc and Raban are.
