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.
“Vagabond Squad” is a full-length BMX video from the Weird & Revered crew. Filmed from 2016 to 2019, the project is community rooted with a strong focus on the Edmonton BMX scene. Although a majority of the clips are from the crew’s home city, the footage spans 9 countries, 8 American states, and 4 Canadian provinces and territories. Full and split sections from: Thomas Henderson, Jesse Baraniuk, Logan Kirzinger, Joe Weidman, Mark Stanway, Duke Thomson-Kurz, Andrew MacLeod, Cary Lorenz, Kyle Lafleur, Sean Tiffin, Ted Bambrick, Tyler Horness, Justin Schwanke, and Derek Bolz.
Justin sent through this rad mixtape he pieced together with some leftover footage from their Vagabond Squad DVD.
Riders: Thomas Henderson, Tyler Horness, Duke Thomson-Kurz, Ted Bambrick, Brodie Gwilliam, Sean Tiffin, Justin Schwanke, Logan Kirzinger, Kyle Lafleur, Colin Reimer, Andrew MacLeod, Mark Stanway, Eddie Anderson, Jesse Baraniuk, Percy Marshall, Taylor Marleau, Mitchel Johnson, Joe Weidman, Derek Bolz, Cary Lorenz, James Dean, Kolbi Watier, Brian Sveinson, and Pearce Grubisich
Only a few more days until the Vagabond Squad DVD drops! The Weird & Revered guys have been working away at this video, traveling all over the world stacking clips and I can’t wait to see the finished project.
This week the Weird & Revered dudes dropped THERAPY, a little mix of some park riding in their home province of Alberta.
Keep your eyes peeled for new videos dropping every week until the full video release.
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.
The Weird and Revered guys have been busy working on their full length video, and managed to piece this awesome mixtape along the way. Some footy from Alberta, BC and some Cali clips sprinkled in. Check it.
Like a fine wine or an aged Whiskey, Canada has had it’s hidden gems of riders, cities and spots for years and Calgary is one of them. “Calgary, Alberta is a world class city for street spots and skateparks. The rest of the world just doesn’t know it yet.”
Justin Schwanke set through this awesome vid documenting his trip throughout the southern states with his homies Thomas Henderson and Jesse Baraniuk. Nothing better than a road trip through some new cities looking for crazy spots. And it looks like they found a few.
