Toby Henderson has been splitting time between top-dog duties at Box Components, and a many-hats role at the American BMX Company, which revived and reimagined the Race inc. line of products. Since he joined the newly-restarted brand, a little over two years ago (see bmxnews September 8, 2021), the brand released some impressive product, and made the pretty-promises of the mockups and prototypes come true.
This week, Toby posted a press release on social media channels stating the following (edited slightly by News for brevity):

“I’ve had the privilege of contributing to the growth and development of American BMX Company,” Toby commented on his departure. “I am proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved together and am excited to see the company’s continued success.”
This transition is taking place on amicable terms, with both Toby and American BMX Company expressing gratitude for the collaboration and mutual respect for one another’s future endeavors.

Now that this news is in, it sort-of makes sense seeing a new bike brand, “Syndyt,” that Toby’s name has been attached to, and was big in the pit chatter at the Grands, last month.
