04 Jan Fuck it, we back… but we need your help…

Fuck it, we back… but we need your help. We ideally need one person per province or region to help us manage edits, photos or anything coming out of your area, which we can then grace on NE. We need people with bikes, ideas, cameras, whatever it may be to send whatever you’re cooking up our way. If you are one of these people, please hit us up on here or better yet by email (Northernembassy@gmail.com).

There’s way to much good content coming out of Canada these days that never makes it off facebook shares. We back baby!

19 Apr PEACE OUT

It’s with heavy hearts that we announce today the end of an era, our last post at Northern Embassy. It’s hard to believe we’ve already existed for more than 6 years now, Northern Embassy was created to showcase Canadian BMX talent and give scenes a place to share their work.

In our hey day, we were banging out original content every couple of weeks. with less contributors now that has changed. We have believed in doing things right or not doing it at all since day 1, which is why it’s time for us to call it a day.

At the time which NE was created, we felt no other media outlets were truly giving Canadian BMX the proper attention it deserves. Which was the main reason for it’s creation to begin with. Today we feel that DIG and Ride have really stepped up their Canadian coverage over the last couple of years.

Throughout the hundreds of edits (215 videos on our Vimeo channel https://vimeo.com/user5177092/videos) , interviews, colabs, contests, clothing runs and even a trip to Barcelona, it has truly been a wonderful ride. BMX in Canada is at an all time high with more riders than ever, more spots than ever. Please expand your horizons beyond instagram, support your scene and continue to make Canadian BMX the best anywhere.
A huge thanks to Prashant Gopal, Aaron Gates, Zach Rampen, and Cory Beal who truly made this place happen from day one.  As well as anyone else who ever contributed to the site, anyone who helped us with any contest,or  anyone who let us film them or interview them over the years. A big thanks to our sponsors for truly believing that we had nothing but the best intentions from day one. Most importantly thanks to Canadian BMX for being the best and letting us show that for years.

01 Feb Chris Silva – Nub Nuts

“I don’t believe I’m over-stretching when I say that no one else in BMX that has pegless grinds on lock like Chris Silva. Most the credit surely goes to Chris and his borderline obsessive attention to detail, but his signature “Nub Nuts” from Animal surely get some credit, as well. No need for a 17mm, either. Just use a ratchet and you’re good to fire out pegless backwards rails, hangers, and pegs to hard 180’s.” Animal bikes

22 Jul Support: Pascal Lafontaine

tumblr_n6fv25WxAC1sp02uao1_1280

A few years ago, shortly after moving from Montreal to Vancouver, I started hearing of Montreal’s “Crazy Frog” Pascal Lafontaine. Pascal was jumping off roofs, doing huge drops and just straight killing it, at a point where no one had really even heard of him before.

Flash forward to a few months ago, Pascal had dropped numerous memorable edits (here, here, here, here) and also a crazy Hunt section. Although he’d had a few injuries over the years, he was still filming and shredding on the reg.

On June 10th, 2015, Pascal had the misfortune of having his right foot amputated due to Ewing Sarcoma cancer. The obvious would be to state that things could always be worse… however, for a young man who clearly had his heart and soul in BMX, this hits hard. Pascal is currently adapting to the prosthetic and hoping to ride again down the road.

One of the greatest things about BMX is the support and community surrounding it. Although this is a very grim time for Pascal, please share in our wishing him the best and offering support/ strength during this hard time. We know you’ll shred again soon Pascal, stay strong brother!

Our friends at BMX union have a cool gallery with some pictures of Pascal’s last session before the surgery here
