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.
13 minutes of west coast goodness from a wide range of characters. Spoiler alert: There’s a footjam to candybar in here. That should be a good enough reason to watch.
“Aside from many epic road trips through North America over the past near 2 years, this is how I spent the rest of my time in Vancouver, Canada. Sadly, we left earlier than hoped due to [the] Corona[virus,] but still stoked to be able to piece this video together and to be able to get back to Australia safe. I am so grateful to of called this place home and to have made many new amazing friends for life. We will be back Vancouver.” – Adam Cox
Riders: Josh Zylstra, Nick Halisheff, Mitch Campbell, Spencer MacFarlane, Colton Ponto, Adam Cox, Jason Lea, Jason Petersen, Corey Walsh, Santiago Martinez, Blake Prins, and Beau Matthews.

Colton took a trip to Vancouver in the spring and broke his wrist there. After healing up was able to pull a few clips together in the fall for his Transition BMX Shop video. Thanks to his sponsor Transition BMX, for hooking it up!
Filmed in Edmonton, Alberta
Filming — Isaac Barnes & Jared Chilko
Edit — Colton Ponto
Song — “ABC City” by Holograms
“The majority of the team guys have been filming hard for various solo and full length projects, so getting footage for the Transition promo proved to be more difficult that expected. Everyone one the team is super close knit so when filming for this project it was all laid back, good vibes, and good times. That’s what it’s all about really.”
Riders: Jared Chilko, Sean Tiffen, Isaac Barnes, Riley Abramyk, Colton Ponto, Trucker Dan, Richard Harding
Filmed: Jared Chilko, Isaac Barnes, Chris Perrin, Andrew Shubert
Edited: Jared Chilko
Andrew Schubert knows what’s up. I’m always stoked on anything he films/ edits. Here we have Andrew Schubert, Darcy Peters, Aaron Cheng, Sam Jepson, and Colton Ponto on a recent trip from Calgary to San Diego. Thanks to Isaac Barnes for linking this up!
“Filmed mainly in Edmonton, and Calgary with a couple BC clips thrown in. There was no real direction while filming for this, just clipping on any regular session with the homies. There are some old clips, and some new that I just thought fit in place. Thanks to John Alden, James Van De Kamp, Richard Gallant, Mike Orita, Jaumell Campbell, Trucker Dan, Colton Ponto, Darcy Peters, Andrew Schubert, Jake Montgomery, Eric Marshall, Cory Beal, Andrew White Jeremy Bischler, Ryan Spracklin, Sam Jepson, Nick Lemont, and Matthew Walser for the good times, and thanks to the Embassy for hosting the edit.”

It hasn’t been easy holding onto this edit all week. So pumped on this! Huge thanks to Isaac for hooking this up. There’s a bunch of rad Canadian riders in this edit mixed with good tunes, good filming, and good editing.
