10 Jan NE x Joyride 150 Canadian Street Invitational – In the Books

IMG_2706
The first NE x Joyride 150 Canadian Street Invitational is in the books and it couldn’t have been better.

The experts killed it, Zack St Clair, Matt Stiehl, Stephane Sum, Mike Depetrillo, Spencer Longo, Jason Kearnan, Lee Giroux, to name a few. Cole Ramseyer got picked by Mike Gray’s team and won a sick Haro SD frame kit, Vans shoes and more. Austin Karker also killed it and got picked by Dillon Lloyd’s team winning the WTP Patron frame kit, Vans shoes and more WTP goods. Both also got the opportunity to ride with the pro teams.

Dillon Lloyd woke up Saturday morning with an unfortunate infection in his finger Saturday which didn’t allow him to ride but Greg Henry stepped into his spot and absolutely killed it, in greasy italian tank fashion. The pros groups were ridiculous, team 1 consisted of Mike Gray, Dean Hartley, Justin Hughes, Spencer Ryan, Gabe Truax and Cole Ramseyer and team 2 consisted of Brandon Webster, Ryan Eles, Eli Taylor, Chijioke Okafo, Greg Henry and Austin Karker, with Dillon coaching. Team 1 (Mike’s team) took the win but both teams absolutely killed it. A few insane NBDs were done, crazy lines, a ton of variety, a tone of rad stuff.

A huge thanks goes out to Joyride 150 for allowing this event to happen in their amazing street room (and even for welding together a sick new rail for the event). I think we speak for alot of Ontario street riders when we say that winters would be completely brutal without Joyride 150’s awesome street room. Not to mention there’s something special about never having to worry about skateboarders or scooters in the way. Thanks for every guys!!

A huge thanks goes to the riders for making it out to this, our judges (Chris Silva, Jeff Evans and Justin Skinner), filmers Chris Cadot, Joel Fortin and Mason Gray, announcers Prashant Gopal and Paul Hoerdt for holding it down on the mics, all the experts who rode, everyone who came out to check it out and of course our sponsors who truly allowed this event to happen: WethePeople, Haro, Vans, Eclat, Radio, Merritt, Federal, Fiend  and the Boiler Room.

Check back in the coming weeks for the offical edit of the madness!

21 Dec Canadian Street Invitational: Joyride 150 X Northern Embassy – January 9th, 2016

canadian invitational_final

We are extremely excited to announce the first, of hopefully many, annual Canadian Street Invitational at Joyride 150, January 9th, 2016.

With so many awesome international BMX events, it’s no secret that Canada has been lacking a unique/ special BMX event for some time now. With Canadian riding at an all time high, it only made sense to organize an event with the mindset of showcasing the incredible talent Canada is fortunate to have. Where else than the incredible Joyride 150 bike park street room.

The Canadian Street Invitational is simple, 10 Canadian pros are invited/confirmed:
-Dillon Lloyd (Team Captain)
-Mike Gray (Team Captain)
-Ryan Eles
-Brandon Webster
-Eli Taylor
-Justin Hughes
-Gabe Truax
-Dean Hartley
-Spencer Ryan
-Chijioke Okafo

These pros will be randomly divided into two groups, with the team captains of these two groups being Dillon Lloyd and Mike Gray. These two pro groups will each have 30 minutes each to session the street room of Joyride 150. After both groups the judges will tally their votes and decide which group has won the Cup and the Cash.

Before the Pro groups, there will be a one hour Expert jam/session where experts can session the street room without the pressure of heats/runs. The two pro groups will be watching the experts and each pro group will select one expert each to win a WTP and Haro prize pack, and also to ride in the pro groups immediately following the experts.

The schedule is as follows:
7pm Practice
8pm Expert Jam
9pm Pro groups

We can’t thank Joyride 150 enough for allowing this idea to come to life. We also have to send a huge thanks to WethePeople, Haro, Vans, Eclat, Radio, Merritt, Federal and Fiend for helping make this happen with their generosity in prizing and cash prizes.

This is sure to be an awesome time, with so many incredible riders within the 10 invited pros and the sure to be a ton of amazing experts, we’re excited to show the world that Canada is doing things right! Of course we will be filming the event and we will have a recap feature on here if you can’t make it out.
