Eye Sore 11 – Vancouver Hijack

17 Nov Eye Sore 11 – Vancouver Hijack

It appears the 11th iteration of the critically acclaimed Eye Sore series has been hijacked. The newly formed, Vancouver based shop Atlantis, has risen above the tides and hit up the streets. These hard Haida pirates will hijack any tanker, tugboat, or dingy in the Georgia Straight. Look out!

22 Oct Whips: Brad Hill by Mason Gray

bhill
┬áBack in February of this year I had the hopes of starting a BMX ‘zine, more or less to fill the gap that opened up due to the disappearance of The Union Press. With that inspiration, it wouldn’t have made any sense for me to not hit up the man behind it, Brad Hill. For all those who don’t know, Bobby has been pushing Canadian BMX through his involvement with BMXFU & The Union Press for many years. He’s more recognized for his work behind the camera rather than in-front of it, which is a damn shame because the man can do one hell of a peg-chink. This Bike Check & shit-shooting session was thought to be lost but, due to the miracle that is modern email, it was recovered. Give it a read and then go watch the original Bobby’s Mixtape if you have a brain & some spare time.

Think Corey Walsh only knows how to ride through complicated obstacle courses? Think again. Brad Hill sent over these two images of Corey blasting and jumping at Hastings in Vancouver.

Also check below for footage from this past weekend’s Texas Toast contest in Austin where Corey was the first rider to successfully make it through the Gauntlet of Death. Congrats!

The Make – Eye Sore 10

29 Jul The Make – Eye Sore 10

Orlando is back with another short edit for his proverbial bike company The Make. Short and sweet is how you can describe it, and nowhere else will you see a blend of UK riders like Tommy Curtain, Chicken, and Marv alongside west coast Canadians such as Jeff Evans, Brad Hill, Andrew Schubert, and Jordan Hango. Oh, and not to mention Rick Flair.

There’s a ton of rad stuff from the World Deece super pro team throughout so hit play already and get trippy.

24 Dec Union Press 4: R.I.P.

IMG_4339

The fourth and final issue of Union Press is finally complete and now available. Those that aren’t familiar, Union Press is a Canadian BMX newspaper with photos, profiles, stories, and drawings by Brad Hill and Prashant Gopal (myself). After a few hiccups with printing, we’ve finally finished our latest issue, which will also be the last. We’ve put out four issues in the span of two years, and thousands upon thousands of copies in to the hands of riders all over the country. Putting together a paper of this size and scope is not an easy task, but it’s been an incredible learning process the whole time, and a small way to give back to a community and sport that has motivated and inspired us all these years, and all the publications and independent projects that have come before us. While it’s bittersweet to end a print project, shutting it down will allow us to concentrate more energy on our other projects (this website being one of them).

The issue will begin shipping January 2nd, 2014 and be available for free across Canada in better bike shops and is distributed by Ten Pack. Inside you will find a profile on Greg Henry’s Bridgespot, Mike Fiz’s favourite things in Montreal, a joke column from Greg Flag, and a whole lot more from various contributors such as Charlie Coombs, Zach Rampen, Luke Santucci, Charlie Crumlish, Matt Bosco, Riley McMaster, Trent Barker, and Dave Scott. On top of 4 broadsheets full of great photos and content, you’ll also get four fold out posters on the backside from MacNeil, Eclat, BMX Gallery 4130, and BMXFU.

For those that don’t have a reliable bike shop in close distance, or live outside of Canada, you can also order a copy from our online store, which will also come with one of three limited edition stickers. Check out some more photos from some of the spreads below, and look for copies in your local shop soon.
