16 Feb No Drents in Londo

The dude Ian Fleming just sent through this great little nugget from a trip to London with Andrew Phillips, Alexis Leger, Matt Comeau, Paul Slaunwhite, Colin Kenny, Harrison Forward and Damien Maclean. Although it looks like they had a great time and rode a bunch of amazing spots, they probably didn’t enjoy it one bit because there were no hydrants around :/ smh.

01 Feb BUSINESS II TRAILER

NE contributor, filmer, Halifax resident and all around badass Ian Fleming just hooked up this trailer for Business 2. If you weren’t hyped before (or if instagram keeps you too busy to watch real videos) this should get you hyped for April. This is what it’s all about and this is some of the best in the East doin it.

“Soon. We’ve been filming this since 2012, and after countless setbacks it’s finally wrapping up. A hell of a lot of work has gone into this. Full length featuring some of the best riders in the Maritimes. Dropping April 2017, follow @businessbmx to keep up.”

16 Jan Merrytimes: Second Priority vol. 1

Hell yes, you’re in luck. My son Andrew Phillips has been filming this joint with the Moncton gang all year in between stacking clips for our BUSINESS 2 DVD, hence the name Second Priority. However, don’t dare get it twisted… this pops off hard. Full sections from Andrew Phillips, Alexis Leger, and Matt Comeau. ALSO, theres an incredible @curbcuts section mixed in there which is my personal favourite part of the video… packed with undoubtedly some of the crispiest curb cut clips you’ll see all week.

Don’t sleep on this one, New Brunswick making east coast Canada proud.

  • Awesome how BMX brings everyone together. End of a dope day, mobbing around with a bunch of different crews from different cities.
  • I will never, ever get bored of running over these floppy pole jams that litter the streets in Quebec.
  • Alexis hitting the roof in the O.
  • Paul is insane. Chills 99% of the time then will throw himself at gaps that don't make sense without a run in. This is him trying to 360 over a gap/fence hop. He told everyone he was just going to straight jump it...
  • Alley chills
  • Cruising around with our godsend of a tour guide Justin. He took us to countless incredible spots, most of which we were probably too hungover to ride but they were dope anyway.

  • Patio beers at Arnauds

Every Summer we go on a road trip to Montreal to film a bit for the DVD and drink a lot. We’ve been trying to get into the habit of taking a handful of disposables with us to capture key moments to remember the great times we had during the trip. I think the guys nailed it this time.

This trip was particularly awesome. We drove up there with two cars full of people, and met up with more Halifax dudes who are working out west when we got there. All together I think there was 9 of us from back home. The crew consisted of young guns as young as 18 and OG’s as old as 27, and I couldn’t have asked for a better gang. On top of the crew we brought, we met up with a bunch of homies and stacked like crazy for the DVD.

Photos taken by everyone. HUGE thanks to Arnaud Paquin for letting us stay at his place in Terrebonne for a few nights, for taking us to a dope beach in the middle of the woods, and being an all around dope guy. Massive thanks to Justin Hughes for bringing our stubborn asses all around the city to incredible spots, and for being the party master he is, and thanks to everyone that added to the trip in any way to make it as sick as it was.

28 Aug Business 2 trailer

Just when you thought your Friday couldn’t get any better, Business drops it’s trailer for their second full length. The dudes were recently in Montreal filming when Ian had his laptop stolen, and recently his camera equipment. Despite some bad luck, it’s pretty clear that the dudes are going in hard for this DVD. Can’t wait for it to drop!

“This is the trailer for our full length which we’ve been working hard on for 4 years. Featuring our large BMX scene in the maritimes, countless riders have put an incredible amount of work into this and the end product is showing.

Recently we’ve run into some bad luck and lost our editing software and a large amount of camera gear to theft. I just wanted to extend a sincere thank you to anyone that has donated, shared, liked, commented on the GoFundMe page that was made. With your help I’m able to get on my feet and continue/finish making this film of my friends. Thank you.” Ian Fleming

21 Oct Business X NE Toronto Trip

 

This year for our annual Business trip we decided to head to Toronto, with the plan of stacking some clips for Business 2. We ended up having an incredibly productive trip so decided to put together this video of the time we had and release it on the web. I’m stoked on our crew for killing it riding and partying, one of my favourite trips to date. Don’t forget to check the gallery of disposables we shot during the trip.

Enjoy!

26 Aug Business BMX Toronto trip disposables

047_47

We headed to Toronto this year for our Business trip, and figured rolling around with some disposable cameras in our pockets would be a great way to capture the essence of what BMX trips are to us. So each of us stocked up on disposables so we could snap pictures throughout the day (and night) as quick as possible when something worth shooting came up. The results were awesome and pretty funny. This is just a small amount of the shots we snapped but are some of the best.

Even though these pictures are from different days over the course of the trip, I wanted them to be laid out in such a way that it shows a pretty average day on our bikes while on a trip. Here’s what we came up with, Enjoy!
