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.
We’ve got a fresh exclusive video courtesy of Austin Odegnal and the 403CREW. With their local indoor, B-Line Bike Park in Calgary closed due to the Alberta COVID restrictions, the squad road tripped to Victoria and Vancouver for some outdoor riding back in March. They luckily timed their trip before the full travel restrictions came into effect in British Columbia. Check out the video above and read on for a quick interview with Austin and some of the crew.
World Deece’s dominance of Illuminati inspired BMX programming continues. This time around, third eye rider, Matt Perrin shows off his grind and bar ting skills on the west coast.
The final section of Them’s video series ONE OF THEM is now live. This time featuring Ky Brisebois, with a new “ting” on things. Ky is guaranteed to make you look at your surroundings a little differently after this one. Once again thanks to Matt Perrin for the video magic.
“The third and final instalment of our ONE OF THEM series featuring Ky Brisebois. Over 6 minutes of raw, tech, savage & refreshing riding from Breezy Boy, that you will probably have to rewind to catch all the tings/bonks in most of these combos. Ky is a very well rounded rider, and kills all terrain he touches… But in this part you get to see him focus, and continue to progress his own brand/style of street riding, which is a breath of fresh air. Enjoy!” – THEM
The second instalment of Them’s video trilogy “ONE OF THEM”. This time featuring Nick Halisheff ripping some transition, and Riley Abramyk with some smooth street lines. Tossing a few Isaac Barnes clips in for good measure too. All put together by Matt Perrin.
Part 3 with Ky Brisebois coming soon.
“ONE OF THEM Pt.2 featuring Nick Halisheff & Riley Abramyk, with guest clips from Isaac Barnes. Nick kills everything, but this part will give you a good look at his bowl roasting capabilities. Riley closes the section with all the steeze, lots of tech, smooth lines in this one. Riley makes everything look good, and a lot easier than it is!” – THEM
Part one of Them’s three part series features Matt Perrin making great use of every spot thrown at him.
Keep your eyes peeled for part two dropping 12/13/2019 on Them’s youtube channel.
“Matt Perrin smashin’ & grindin’ his pegs, pedals, and BB all over the place to open our three part web series, ONE OF THEM.” – THEM
It’s been a while since we’ve seen some vaporwave inspired bike riding out of Vancouver… Rest assured, James Dean has put his love for synths to use in this new World Deece mixtape, “Most Podernism.” The full cast includes Shelby Hare, Drew Morton, Matt Perrin, Trent Krog, Ky Brisebois, Lynden Chartrand, Keenen Raymond, Andrew Gobbo, Tristan Sweet, Jake Mallichan, and James Dean.
