Rexdale – Trail Fire

13 Oct Rexdale – Trail Fire

“Well… here it is. A loose cannon edit of the Rexdale Trails. The trails are in their 20th year in 2014 but this is in no way a documentary of all those years. Edited with footage from about ’08 to 2012. Its raw and of somewhat poor quality and does not show the current Amazing condition they’re in now, but its killer none the less. It was going to be a bonus section on the latest I.C.C. video but it was a little to long. Anyways, grab some beers, light one up and turn it up!” Ben Rinne

LA GRANJA – BMX PARK CONSTRUCTION

13 Oct LA GRANJA – BMX PARK CONSTRUCTION

Tsawwassen BC’s Braeden Barnard is a dude who makes shit happen. Spending some time in Mexico last winter he build la Granja. If you’ve ever had some interest in quick-creting or building some tranny out of concrete, you’ll enjoy this video.

“Do It Yourself BMX project. Built and funded by BMX riders with curvature research. Designed for minimal cost and high re-usability. Steel box tubing is bent to the desired radius to create the perfect contact surface for ramp curvature. Two tubes strategically placed and re-used multiple times lays out flat faces. Fill in corners with radius trowel . Set the decks on and round out the tops. Pour in the Flat bottoms and you’re done.”

NE Hidden Gems – 6th to 10th Place

07 Oct NE Hidden Gems – 6th to 10th Place

Thanks for being patient with us on announcing these, below are sixth place through tenth place. The judges had their work cut out for them (thanks again to Dillon Lloyd, Mike Gray, Brandon Webster and Jason Enns), and here’s the proof. All 5 of these edits are amazing and could have easily won, every one of these guys put in work and it shows. Stay tuned for top 5 soon…

6th Mitch Radcliffe – Mitch has a rad all around style, he charges shit but also get tech (that 180 ice 180 is so smooth). Mix Mitch’s amazing riding with some awesome filming/editing and you get this amazing edit that just missed making top 5. Burly ass bangers at the end as well!

7th Drew Wood – Drew has that steezy style that most of us wish we had; his whips are almost as steezy as Dehart’s and he kills it throughout this part. Drew even had to do some landscaping to get that curved wallride done.

8th Kalvin Sexsmith – Mix Kalvin’s crazy riding with his amazing backyard bowl and likely the most legendary trails in Canada and you get one hell of a watch. Kelsey Clarke did an amazing job filming and editing this, enjoyed every second of this one.

9th Francis La – Francis has never put something together that hasn’t been a good watch and this part is no exception. Lots of creative riding and spots throughout, he may very well be the first rider to nose wheelie 180 rolling down stairs, another great Francis La part.

10th Jason Kearnan – Jason tears his local park of Courtice a new one. So much amazing riding in this one and an awesome summer vibe at your local part throughout. Filmed and edited perfectly by Kyle Smail.
