Saying Goodbye!


So The Come Up leaked this info awhile ago and I’ll confirm it now.  Karl Poynter has decided to leave the Sunday team.  I’ve been a fan of Karl’s unique view on riding ever since he was that 13 year old kid at the Four Seasons contest in Milwaukee back in 2001.  This explains why he was selected to be one of the first guys on Sunday when it was started almost 4 years ago.  Its been a great 4 years and I’m definitely going to miss him.  Wish you luck Karl!  Check out Karl’s words about moving on from the team after the jump.

I will be no longer riding for Sunday Bikes, but will still be supporting the brand and selling Sunday’s innovative product through my shop, Hardcore Sportz. I definitely want to make note that I had a good time riding and working with Sunday, from brain storming on new ideas, to the road trips, and everything inbetween. I really appreciate what everything Sunday has done for me. It’s been a fun 5 years and I wish Jim and Sunday the best!

This is the best trick Karl did while on Sunday. Manual up the double kink to backwards manual down. Too bad the footage was lost. Sorry!


Karl set up a Model C and got to ride it just a few times before moving on.
