One of the main dudes behind last weekend’s Xjam contest in Toronto, Zeb Dennis shreds. Check out some clips that won’t be used for the Classic DVD and also some stuff from the Xjam ramps pre contest. Filmed and edited by Mitch Radcliffe
One of Ontario’s best kept secrets, Dean Hartley made the trip to Le Taz in Montreal to film his welcome to Radio edit. Mitch Radcliffe filmed and edited it wonderfully and Dean came through in typical Dean fashion, tons of ridiculous stuff looking way too casual.
You may remember Mitch Radcliffe from his crazy 6th place NE hidden gems edit last year , well he hasn’t slowed down. Here’s some footage he filmed at Joyride over the winter with Tyler Rizzi, tons of original moves and variety from this dude!
Thanks for being patient with us on announcing these, below are sixth place through tenth place. The judges had their work cut out for them (thanks again to Dillon Lloyd, Mike Gray, Brandon Webster and Jason Enns), and here’s the proof. All 5 of these edits are amazing and could have easily won, every one of these guys put in work and it shows. Stay tuned for top 5 soon…
6th Mitch Radcliffe – Mitch has a rad all around style, he charges shit but also get tech (that 180 ice 180 is so smooth). Mix Mitch’s amazing riding with some awesome filming/editing and you get this amazing edit that just missed making top 5. Burly ass bangers at the end as well!
7th Drew Wood – Drew has that steezy style that most of us wish we had; his whips are almost as steezy as Dehart’s and he kills it throughout this part. Drew even had to do some landscaping to get that curved wallride done.
8th Kalvin Sexsmith – Mix Kalvin’s crazy riding with his amazing backyard bowl and likely the most legendary trails in Canada and you get one hell of a watch. Kelsey Clarke did an amazing job filming and editing this, enjoyed every second of this one.
9th Francis La – Francis has never put something together that hasn’t been a good watch and this part is no exception. Lots of creative riding and spots throughout, he may very well be the first rider to nose wheelie 180 rolling down stairs, another great Francis La part.
10th Jason Kearnan – Jason tears his local park of Courtice a new one. So much amazing riding in this one and an awesome summer vibe at your local part throughout. Filmed and edited perfectly by Kyle Smail.
