Riders include Ryan Antle, Jordan Hickey, Corey Antle, Jamie Flynn, Stephen Jackson, Robert Osmond, Ryan Hodder, Will Taylor, Jacob Manning and Tristan Fowler. You probably remember Jordan and Ryan from the recent, and ridiculous Ant Life Project video from their California Trip, so you know this is gonna be good.

2015 X-Jam Contest

10 Mar 2015 X-Jam Contest

There was a buzz around the Toronto BMX jam last year, Eric Favot and Zeb Dennis re-vamped the course and ramps which was much needed. They came into 2015 with momentum and did not disappoint! Street riders got a course they had long time hoped for and park guys got a fun flowy setup, box jumps guys got their dream setup, a box that would allow them to go ape.

Lots of guys killed it all weekend long, it’s safe to say X-Jam is growing strong for years to come!

Featuring: Drew Bezanson, Zach St Clair, Nick Bullen, Ross Lanier, Gabe Truax, Charlie Crumlish, Justin Hughes, Nick Bruce, Joel Bondu, Mike Varga, Jake Leiva, Steven Moxley, Mike Fede, Zak Jarvis, Zeb Dennis, Joel Marchand, Phil Williams, Greg Henry, Andrew White, Kenny Oliver, Stephan Sum, Ryan Eles, Gage Sharp, Spencer Ryan, Nick Bullen, Mike Stahl, Jamie Cooper-Ellis, Darcy Peters, Jason Kearnan, Kevin Fabregue, Hugo Larochelle, Dillon Bell, Jamie Thayer, Al Farrugia, David Leib, Colton Walker

Silva & Son MacNeil Vacation

09 Mar Silva & Son MacNeil Vacation

Back in January, Chris Silva and his dad embarked on a month long road trip from Toronto to Miami all in an attempt to escape the harsh Canadian winter and bask in some Southern sun. Silva also wanted to check off some bucket list items of famous spots that he’s seen in videos throughout the years and was lucky enough to find some newer ones along the way.

They hit a ton of cities, but most notable were: Nashville, Tennessee; Athens, Georgia; Orlando, Miami and back up the coast to Jacksonville in Florida. High tailing it through the Carolinas they hit up the White House and Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.; gambled in Atlantic City and finally got to New York/New Jersey where Silva hit up the Animal warehouse for a quick sesh and did some site seeing in the Big Apple.
