If you’ve ever been to a wallride spot in the GTA, odds are that the highest tire marks belong to this dude. Chi’s been killing it forever and continuously pushes himself to learn new tricks and film new parts. The dude’s got a great eye for spots, and a selection of tricks that are completely unique to him. A few weeks ago, with the NE website re-launch on the horizon, I figured it was a perfect opportunity to hit Chijioke up and get the scoop on what he’s been up to. Read on to get caught up with one of Canada’s best…

20 Nov Joel Fortin – 2019

Joel was out cruising all summer and put together this silky smooth video as a result. Guest clips from Dean & Chijioke are always a treat. Should be called “J-Gold 2019” not “J-Dust 2019”. Thanks to Merritt, OGCBMX, FTL, & Vans for keeping the the guy rolling!

31 Aug Merritt in da 6ix

The Merritt team rolled through Toronto in July, in typical Merritt fashion. If Eli Taylor, Mike Brennan, Greg Henry, Chijioke Okafo, Joel Fortin, Brandon Begin, Charlie Crumlish and Justin Care aren’t reason enough to watch this, Ryan Navaz put this beauty together so hit play already.
