15 Jan 2016 NE X JOYRIDE 150 Canadian Street Invitational – Recap Vid

Last Saturday January 9th, the first annual Joyride 150 X Northern Embassy Canadian Street Invitational was held.

The idea was simple, invite 10 amazing Canadian pros who live in the Ontario/Quebec area and watch them destroy the street room of Joyride 150. We although thought it could be awesome to host an Expert jam before the pros where each pro team would choose one expert.

The experts killed it and two were chosen: Cole Ramseyer and Austin Karker.

Team 1:
Mike Gray
Spencer Ryan
Justin Hughes
Dean Hartley
Gabe Truax

Team 2:
Dillon Lloyd (injured)
Brandon Webster
Greg Henry
Eli Taylor
Ryan Eles
Chijioke Okafo
Austin Karker

Both teams went off but team 1 would be named the champs. The overall vibe/atmosphere of the contest (if you even want to call it that) was amazing. Non competitive, just people stoked to be riding together and chilling together, which is the best. 2017’s will be bigger and better, start planning to come out to next years!

We can’t thank Joyride 150 enough for allowing this event to happen there. If not for Joyride’s expansion and creation of the street room years ago, many Ontario riders would suffer all winter having no real indoor spot to go to. Also thanks to Joyride for whipping up a new rail for the contest. Huge thanks to MC Prashant and Paul Hoerdt, filmers Chris Cadot, Joel Fortin and Mason Gray, all the riders who came out (especially Mike Gray/ Dilllon Lloyd for delaying their trips back to Cali for this event). Last but not least, a huge thanks to all of the sponsors: Haro, WTP, Vans, Eclat, Radio, The Boiler Room, Merritt, Fiend, Federal!

See you next year!!

13 Oct Taz Pro Am 2015

It’s that time of year again, where you try and get as many outdoor sessions in as possible as the indoor hibernation is coming quick. Lucky for Canada, we have some awesome indoor spots/ events to keep us going over the colder months.

Starting with Montreal’s annual Taz Pro-Am contest, Saturday October 24th. This contest always bring a good amount of shredders in from Quebec and Ontario. The new Taz layout is looking crazier than ever and for the first time this contest will also feature a Street Jam/ contest where street riders will have a certain amount of time on certain areas/ obstacles, rather than having to ride mixed in the usual contest heats. If you’re anywhere near Montreal be sure to get out to this!
