For the past few years I've had the incredible pleasure of working for Pinkbike and meeting a lot of amazing people, but it's time to move on. A new opportunity has come up and I've decided that I need to go for it and see where it takes me. I'm sad to be leaving, my time at Pinkbike has been great, and while you'll probably continue to see me here in the future, I'll no longer be working for the best mountain bike website ever. To all the photographers that I've worked with over the past 2.5 years, thank you so much for contributing so much to this site and helping it to be what it is! I'm not sure who will be replacing me, but you can be sure that Pinkbike will continue to feature amazing photos in articles, reviews, and features. -Ian Hylands
