Ronald Bonner Sr.

Rest in Peace

The Shadow and Sparkys family lost a great man over the weekend. Ron Bonner Sr., better known to the BMX world as Mr. B., succumbed to his long standing battle with cancer. Mr. B. is the father of Shadow Conspiracy owner Ronnie B. and an integral part to the creation of brands like The Shadow Conspiracy, UGP, and Subrosa Brand. Many may not know who exactly Mr. B. was, but to me, he is a legend within scene. Without his help, the industry would look much different today. On a personal level, I want to say thank you to the man who, with his son, helped bring in an unknown and give him his dream job. Thank you for everything and you will be missed greatly!
