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.
Germans are well-executed tech machines and Jonathan Hausmann is no exception. Last summer Jonathan travelled to British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario to put his two-wheeled tech skills to work. Unfortunately, Jonathan’s bike was stolen in Winnipeg which cut some of his planned riding short. Nonetheless, he still managed to gather a bunch of footage for this video. Guest appearances from Cory Beal, Mark Stanway, Jesse Baraniuk, Nick Rempel, Cole Jonsson, and Justin Schwanke.
Mark Stanway is probably the fastest progressing park rider in the Edmonton area right now. For better or for worse, he has that young, fearless, “just gonna send it” attitude. I’ll give you an example: That launch ramp / fly-out backflip at 0:24 was done on a hi-tensile steel rental bike from the park. Given how hard Mark is on bikes, he had to pay an additional $10 to rent it. As expected, the bike made some pretty awful noises as he was attempting the flip. The bars were continuously slipping and his feet kept blowing off the non-grippy pedals. Nonetheless, he kept going for it until the bike couldn’t take much more. Mark will have some footage in the upcoming Weird & Revered DVD, but until then, peep this short video comprised of phone clips at House of Wheels skatepark. It will give a little taste of what Mark is all about.
Thomas Henderson is a polarizing character. Upon meeting him, you will likely experience a well-defined emotion or sentiment. These reactions could range from admiration to condemnation, intellectual stimulation to confusion, excitement to discomfort, intrigue to disengagement, amusement to outrage, or something entirely different.
Shaun Harrison sent through this awesome mixtape that he filmed in Edmonton throughout 2017. Everyone’s got some fire clips so press play!

Justin Schwanke and the boys at Weird and Revered hosted a jam along side the FISE organizers in Edmonton and it looked like a time. Fresh Ted Bambrick and Matt Walser footage never hurts either! Stoked to see how the contest goes this coming weekend.
Holy shit!! Nick Halisheff is a name you won’t soon forget, Nick brings some bangers from Edmonton, AB. So much gnarly stuff in here mixed with some tech stuff as well, Nick flew in a little under the radar but he absolutely kills it!
“Nick Halisheff is the newest addition to the Transition BMX team.
Filmed in the streets of Edmonton, St. Albert and Sherwood Park, Alberta.
Welcome to the crew.

Day 2 of our 5th year anniversary week, we have an awesome Edmonton edit from Mike Orita. Mike is a member of the 30+ club but shows no signs of slowing down/ still rides his bike for all the right reasons.
“I’m lucky to have a great group of friends that all have the same common interests of having fun and riding BMX. Thanks to all the homies and everyone that filmed or had a floor to crash on. Truly am blessed for this life I’ve that BMX has given me and has surrounded myself with people that make every moment memorable and enjoyable” Mike Boag Orita
