We are extremely excited to announce the first, of hopefully many, annual Canadian Street Invitational at Joyride 150, January 9th, 2016.

With so many awesome international BMX events, it’s no secret that Canada has been lacking a unique/ special BMX event for some time now. With Canadian riding at an all time high, it only made sense to organize an event with the mindset of showcasing the incredible talent Canada is fortunate to have. Where else than the incredible Joyride 150 bike park street room.

The Canadian Street Invitational is simple, 10 Canadian pros are invited/confirmed:
-Dillon Lloyd (Team Captain)
-Mike Gray (Team Captain)
-Ryan Eles
-Brandon Webster
-Eli Taylor
-Justin Hughes
-Gabe Truax
-Dean Hartley
-Spencer Ryan
-Chijioke Okafo

These pros will be randomly divided into two groups, with the team captains of these two groups being Dillon Lloyd and Mike Gray. These two pro groups will each have 30 minutes each to session the street room of Joyride 150. After both groups the judges will tally their votes and decide which group has won the Cup and the Cash.

Before the Pro groups, there will be a one hour Expert jam/session where experts can session the street room without the pressure of heats/runs. The two pro groups will be watching the experts and each pro group will select one expert each to win a WTP and Haro prize pack, and also to ride in the pro groups immediately following the experts.

The schedule is as follows:
7pm Practice
8pm Expert Jam
9pm Pro groups

We can’t thank Joyride 150 enough for allowing this idea to come to life. We also have to send a huge thanks to WethePeople, Haro, Vans, Eclat, Radio, Merritt, Federal and Fiend for helping make this happen with their generosity in prizing and cash prizes.

This is sure to be an awesome time, with so many incredible riders within the 10 invited pros and the sure to be a ton of amazing experts, we’re excited to show the world that Canada is doing things right! Of course we will be filming the event and we will have a recap feature on here if you can’t make it out.
