Byron Lo – ICC ‘Five To Ten’

http://youtu.be/GjMq2duCoPg How many video parts start off with stone masonry, snow biking, then street riding? Not many that's for sure. Get with the riddim of this part by Byron Lo from this summer's ICC DVD release Five To Ten....

Chris Silva – ICC ‘Five To Ten’ Section
Chris Silva – ICC ‘Five To Ten’ Section

Chris Silva says he's not getting any younger (he just entered level 3) and hates sitting on old footage, so he decided to upload his section from the latest ICC DVD that premiered just last month. This part is almost entirely full of cell phone footage, and look for plenty...

ICC ‘Five to Ten’ Video Premiere – Chris Silva Interview
ICC poster This coming Saturday, June 14th at Dufferin Grove Park in Toronto, Chris Silva will be premiering the 5th in the series of Inner City Circle videos. Come out when the lights in the park go off around 11:00 and Chris will have his pirate premiere set up and airing his video in the open for everyone. Copies will be available, along with limited ICC merchandise. This is a public park, so please no bozo behaviour if you want events and places like this to continue to happen. With a new video coming out, and an ICC archive website launched, I thought I'd ask Chris a little bit about this project, ICC history, and more. Read what he had to say below, and we'll see you at the park on Saturday.
Random Find: Now Newspaper, January 2004
newspaper-crop While doing some cleaning in our apartment this evening, my roommate stumbled upon this old clipping from Now Newspaper in Toronto from January 2004, written by Colin Field about the now long defunct ICC Warehouse. While being published almost ten years ago, I think the same sentiment and ideology could be said about any indoor ramp setup anywhere in Canada even now. Take a closer look and read it after the link below.

"ICC's infamous Oasis ramp at Butta's house has been torn apart and made a ledge for kicks and a farewell to Oasis, we had a great time and so much fun. Thanks to Enrique "Butta" Abarca. Appearances by Butta, Chris Silva, Ben Rinne and George "Armani" Carijutan."...

ICC Retrospective
ICC Retrospective
From Jane Strip to ScarTown - 2007 It may seem like a heavy week of content from Chris Silva after his recent MacNeil web edit, but for the last few week's he has been uploading all the past Inner City Circle videos. Just yesterday he put up 2007's From Jane Strip to ScarTown, the previous week saw 2005's That's What I'm Talking About, and the week prior he uploaded 2004's Lock and Load. These videos are steeped in Toronto BMX nostalgia as they epitomized how the city was seen by outsiders at the time, and the influences inside it. The ICC videos always ran a fine line between being a scene video and a crew video. Who they filmed and who was considered as part of that inner circle (no pun intended) was kept on a short leash. However, the videos are full of memorable riding and loads of unforgettable quirks such as skits, characters, sound effects (gun shots), nicknames, original music, and jokes. You can watch the last three videos below with riding from Chris Silva, George Carijutan (Armani), (Drifter) Dave Stewart, Enrique Abarca (Butta), Adrian Ellis [E], Leland Nightingale, Patrick Krzyzanowski, Taro Saito, and lots more. There's still one more video to date from the ICC so maybe that will make its way online soon...
