26 May 403Crew: West Coast Trippin’ Video & Interview

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.

27 Apr Lynden Chartrand Interview Ft. Andy McGrath

Photo Credit: Andy McGrath.

Back in December 2020 when we were planning our re-launch for the Northern Embassy, the admin team released an audience survey. Our aim was to get some insights on our community so we could build out content that people would be stoked on. Andy McGrath was one of about a hundred riders who submitted responses. In his survey submission, he shared a private link to a video he filmed of Lynden Chartrand. I’d seen Lynden’s name pop up periodically in random BMX media before, but I honestly wasn’t too familiar with his riding. I watched the video and immediately shared it with the admin team. After viewing 4+ minutes of hammers and exceptional spot use, it was clear we wanted to learn more about the guy. I reached out to Lynden and Andy to see if they’d be down for an interview. They obliged and a few months later, here we are. Dive in to get to know one of Canada’s grittiest 20-something street riders…

I am so grateful to of called this place home and to have made many new amazing friends for life. We will be back Vancouver.” – Adam Cox
