SAN DIEGO (AP) — Larry Linkogle, the co-founder of the Metal Mulisha freestyle motocross group, says he's cleaned up after a debilitating decade of drug abuse and wants to return the company to its roots.

That means having to get along with fellow co-owner Brian Deegan in a business relationship that Linkogle says exists only through intermediaries.

Deegan, the action sports star who has branched out from freestyle motocross to rally car racing and off-road truck racing, has for years been the public face of the company known for its logo of a fierce-looking skull wearing a German military helmet.

Linkogle is the self-described quiet partner who's no longer willing to be quiet.

Linkogle said he and Deegan haven't gotten along since the early 2000s.

Says Linkogle: "We coexist. We have to."
