In a world of 15-second Instagram clips and constant social media churn, here’s a silver platter of Canadian BMX videos from recent months. This is the Northern Embassy’s Video Round Up.
We’ve got a fresh exclusive video courtesy of Austin Odegnal and the 403CREW. With their local indoor, B-Line Bike Park in Calgary closed due to the Alberta COVID restrictions, the squad road tripped to Victoria and Vancouver for some outdoor riding back in March. They luckily timed their trip before the full travel restrictions came into effect in British Columbia. Check out the video above and read on for a quick interview with Austin and some of the crew.
The Gorilla Jam hit a big milestone by celebrating its 10th year of existence. Austin Odegnal chopped up this edit with highlights from this year’s event. Shout outs to Josh August for putting in the work to make Gorilla Jam happen.
