Business X NE Toronto Trip

21 Oct Business X NE Toronto Trip

 

This year for our annual Business trip we decided to head to Toronto, with the plan of stacking some clips for Business 2. We ended up having an incredibly productive trip so decided to put together this video of the time we had and release it on the web. I’m stoked on our crew for killing it riding and partying, one of my favourite trips to date.┬áDon’t forget to check the gallery of disposables we shot during the trip.

Enjoy!

Think Corey Walsh only knows how to ride through complicated obstacle courses? Think again. Brad Hill sent over these two images of Corey blasting and jumping at Hastings in Vancouver.

Also check below for footage from this past weekend’s Texas Toast contest in Austin where Corey was the first rider to successfully make it through the Gauntlet of Death. Congrats!

Saguenay, QC’s Olivier Croft kills it! This was filmed over a three month period and is surely just a sign of what’s to come from Olivier.

SETUPS: VLAD POLOUKHINE

18 Oct SETUPS: VLAD POLOUKHINE

VladsetupNE

Vlad is the first of our new SETUPS feature which will take a look at some of Canada’s finest BMX filmers/editors. Straight out of Montreal, Vlad is tight in the scene and has been filming for ages now.

What’s your current setup?

I film with a Panasonic HMC 150 and I sometimes use my Canon t2i/Rokinon fish for wider fisheye shots.

Who are some of your favorite people to film with and what is a project or edit you filmed that you are most stoked on?

I like to film with all my Imported BMX guys especially Dillon Lloyd, Justin Hughes, Joel Marchand and Jordane Dubois, those guys simply kill it. So far my best edits are Justin’s and Dill’s welcome to WeThePeople team.

When did you start Imported and for anyone who doesn’t know, what’s it all about?

Imported bmx started I’d say 3 years ago. All of us are good friends and we have own team here in Montreal. We ride and chill together also filming constantly. You can always find us on facebook, instagram @importedbmx

Any projects in the works over the winter? Taz edits?

I’m currently working on Joel Marchand’s welcome to imported team video and also new Imported Mixtape that we filmed for about 2 years. There will be snow and cold weather here in Montreal soon so expect edits in TAZ Skatepark for sure this year!

Shout out our good friend Boris from Israel that rep’s us there and keeps it real. We will have clips of him in the mixtape .

Hidden Gems Contest – 1st through 5th

15 Oct Hidden Gems Contest – 1st through 5th

We’re extremely stoked to bring you the top 5 parts from our NE Hidden Gems contest. We had so many rad parts come through that we couldn’t be more stoked on the contest but these 5 take the cake. Do yourself a favor and watch all five of these edits from start to finish!

1st Place – Shawn Franz by Phil Bellefeuille

Shawn has been quietly killing it in Winnipeg the last couple of years now and this part is proof. Mix Shawn’s crazy tech/creative and smooth riding, Phil’s awesome filming/editing, Winnipeg street and Winnipeg’s own Harlequin and you have the first place part. There’s too much rad stuff throughout this edit to put anything specific here, watch it and get stoked.

2nd Place – Spencer Ryan by Tyler Rizzi

It was clear very early into this contest that Spencer Ryan was going to have an incredible part. Tyler had posted a couple pictures on instagram that had us all extremely excited to see this section, and it did not disappoint. These guys put in work hitting Toronto area roofs, ditches, and a ton more rad spots. Spencer has a style which reminds me of a modern day Van Homan, extremely talented but also has an eye for burlier stuff. This is an amazing part, awesome work guys!

3rd Place – Matt Comeau

Matt Comeau has been killing it in Ottawa for years, he’s that smooth/stylish dude who just seems as though he was born with skills on a bike. He recently moved to the Maritimes and has been taking advantage of new spots since the move. I think that Matt might be one of the most surprising parts to some based on how crazy a few of his street bangers really are. Again, we don’t want to give anything away but watch this from start to finish, there’s a few NBDs in here and that last clip!!!

4th Place – Ryan Ebbers by Connor Clark

Ryan Ebbers wins best intro without a doubt, it doesn’t get any more Canadian than that. Connor Clark did an amazing job with motion graphics, filming and editing in this one, apparently they even built the dirt setup specifically for this contest which is so rad. Ebbers is really dialed, does some amazing stuff throughout, whips both ways and is the only part we received to feature street, park and dirt riding.

5th Place – Drew Morton by James Dean

Drew comes through with some of the gnarliest street moves of any part we received, particularly his last few clips. James and Drew put in work for this an it shows, such a rad part. Worlddeece.com

Thanks to Dillon Lloyd, Jason Enns, Brandon Webster and Mike Gray for judging this, it couldn’t have been easy with how good these parts are.

Also a huge thanks to We the People, Odyssey, Etnies, MacNeil, Eclat, Fiend, Merritt, GoPro, Repset, Bmx Gallery 4130, Joyride 150, Federal and Sunday for supporting this rad contest with such amazing prizing.

Biggest thanks goes to all of you who put together these 18 amazing parts and made the contest as rad as it was!

Northern Embassy Coast to Coast tee

14 Oct NEW Northern Embassy Site/Layout

Hey guys, you may have already noticed some changes in the layout of the site over the last week. We can’t thank Cory Beal enough for making this happen, the site is finally looking how we’ve wanted it to look since it’s creation almost 4 years ago now.

The biggest changes are the following:

FEATURES – Everything that is exclusive to Northern Embassy can be found simply by clicking that tab. In the past we’ve found alot of our exclusive content has gotten lost in the mix of everything else, this tab will change that.

EVENTS - This is still a work in progress but essentially our goal here is to have a calendar with a list of all BMX events across Canada so riders can have an easy go to to keep track of what is happening where and when. For now all flyers or event info will be tagged with events.

CONTACT & SUBMISSION – Our email and contact info was never super easy to find on the previous site, now if you have an edit you’d like us to post up you can simply fill out the form or email us at the email indicated in the contact section (northernembassy@gmail.com)

STORE – Updated store with hopefully a consistent flow of goods/stickers

Home – This is essentially exactly what the previous version of Northern Embassy was, everything we post can be found here

The goal of Northern Embassy has always been and always will be to allow Canadian riders to see what riders across this country are up to. This site wouldn’t exist without all it’s contributors, thanks so much to all of you! Enjoy the new layout and look forward to good things ahead!

Northern Embassy Coast to Coast tee

In celebration of the new site, we got some tees printed which you can snag off our shop here or hit us up by email (NorthernEmbassy@gmail.com) if you’re in the Vancouver, or Toronto area for local pickup. NE print on the front and big logo on the back.
