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.
I’ve known Lee for 10+ years now. We’ve spent countless hours riding, filming, road tripping, and drinking together. The dude’s always down to shred and has been killing it more and more every year. Lee helped me with countless videos when we lived in Sudbury and he’s been quietly stacking himself for years now. With his recent move to Ottawa a couple years ago, I figured it would be the perfect time to close his Sudbury riding chapter and drop this video. Seeing his progression with the tech/manny game was insane and I’m stoked to work on more projects with him now that we’re both living in Ottawa. I hit up Lee with a few questions. Read on to learn more about the video and what’s going on with him.View Post
Here’s a quick one to start your weekend. Ryan Eles, Jeremy Deme, Lee Giroux and myself (Joel Fortin) had a little morning warmup session at the Dufferin Grove skatepark in TO and this is what we came up with. Unfortunately Jeremy hurt his heel and couldn’t get any clips, but he still held it down behind the lens.
Ryan Eles/ Kyle Lafleur and the Sudbury, ON homies were kind enough to hook up part 1 of 3 from their DVD You Get What We Got. Scene DVDs are far and between these days and the Sudbury dudes really put in work for this one and it shows. Part one features the intro, Lee Giroux, and Nick Barnard.
Canadian BMX DVDs are few and far between, but when they do drop they make you really appreciate them. The Sudbury, Ontario crew just dropped You Get What We Got which features full sections from Ryan Eles, Kyle Lafleur, Nick Barnard, Mat Demore, Lee Giroux and Zach Lacelle, plus a bunch more Sudbury shredders. Good on Kyle Lafleur and Ryan Eles for making this happen, and I’m looking forward to seeing it! Hit up Kyle or Ryan on Facebook if you’d like to get your hands on a copy.
