07 Jan Ken Paul – Chase Photo Gallery (2000 to 2004)

Adam Perez – Vancouver Metro Jam 2003
Adam was a young rider from Oregon that was picked up by MacNeil. Like a few others, he was blasting this hip all weekend, and to me, this shot sums up the whole vibe of that contest.

“From early 1999 until late 2003, Chase BMX Magazine was a quarterly publication focusing primarily on the Canadian scene. I was fortunate to be the editor for its four year run, and along the way I started taking photos. We had mediocre photo equipment, and possessed little of the skills cut out for it, but what I did have was a lot of talented subjects to shoot with. Chase was published by World Bicycle Sports Incorporated, who also founded Up North BMX Supply, Ten Pack Distribution, MacNeil Bikes, Metro Jam, and the Pivotal seat. At the time, the magazine served as an advertising medium promoting the brands that Ten Pack distributed, while at the same time trying to grow the sport in Canada and abroad. While we printed about 10,000 copies for Canada, 5,000 copies made their way to the US and 1,000 more to the UK. It was a great ride while it lasted. In the late summer of 2003, we decided to fold the magazine and focus our attention more on the other ventures at World Bicycle Sports. I was going to include all of my favourite shots from over the years, both during Chase and post-Chase, but we don’t have enough bandwidth for that. Instead, these shots were all taken from 2000 until early 2004. These were all shot on film, and some of them I cringe when I see the imperfections, whether it’s composition or technical. In the end, it’s a snapshot of a time that I look back upon quite fondly. We were really just a bunch of guys having the time of our lives growing and creating, whether it was history or friendships.” -Ken Paul

23 Oct TBT – Hoby Gumbler

As good as it is, the web is a black hole, where great edits can be forgotten in days. Every Thursday we’ll be featuring an edit that is/was rad and deserves more shine time. Starting with Vancouver’s Chris Smith and this beauty from 2010, filmed by Surrey Steve. Chris is a legend to say the least, I can’t think of too many guys who have been a part of the Vancouver scene longer than he has. Chris’ riding has always been fast, dialed and super fun to watch. HEVIL

If you have an edit in mind that you feel should be posted up under our TBT, send it via the contact & submissions page.

03 May Andy Roode – pic by Surrey Steve

“I came to Van in 99 on March break with a friend to ride skateparks. I met Surrey Steve and hung out with him a bunch on that trip. I moved to Vancouver in th fall of 2002, after I graduated. The friends you make through BMX last more than anything. I never thought that in 2014 I’d be 30 and still riding and out with the same people I rode with at 16. Gotta love bikes.”

Not gonna lie, having Jason Enns footage on the Embassy vimeo feels pretty surreal! Enns was nice enough to let us host up a bunch of rad raw footage that he filmed in Vancouver through 2007-08 with Surrey Steve. SO pumped on this, thanks to Jason and Surrey for this.

Intro: Aaron Gates, Interview: Mat Ridgeway, Photos: Ken Paul

Hevil has had many associations over the years – Chris Smith’s artwork, wild party stories, “that guy who KO’d Alex Chalmers”. It’s a name that defines a generation of Vancouver badasses, and their video is one of the most anticipated things we thought we’d never see. The Hevil video that will premiere tomorrow night at the Astoria is a collection of footage from 2004-2008. It includes the guys who most would associate with the original crew, along with some of the predominant Canadian riders of that time. If you’re reading this from Vancouver, you’re probably already going.
