"After 12 years with Yeti Cycles I am moving onto a different team from 2016. Yeti will always be family to me, and it was a tough decision to make but Im super excited for the future, and the opportunities it brings."
But Graves was more than just a rider said Yeti, as it waved him off to Specialized.
"He was instrumental in the development of our most recognizable products: the 303 DH, 4x, SB66c, SB5c, and, most recently, the SB6c. When he wasn’t helping us develop products, he was helping us develop talent. Many of our best athletes have benefited from his guidance along the way, including the enormously talented current EWS World Champion, Richie Rude."
Graves will tackle the 2016 edition Enduro World Series on a Specialized S-Works Enduro bike.
