A big happy birthday shout out to a timeless rider, Christopher Peter Almeida Silva . He’s collecting new skills, spots and clips every day. Thanks for all you do Chris!
Canada’s pegless wonder, Chris Silva has his signature MacNeil seat in the works. He fired together this promo last week to let you all see how it turned out.
Gabe was planning on putting out a full indoor winter edit but ran out of time before he headed off to Europe so instead he put out this 5 clip from his parents skatepark in Dundas, Ontario. INFLOW!!!
Hope everyone enjoys!
With the snow disappearing from coast to coast, we thought we would welcome spring with a quick edit from some of our guys from across the country. Featuring riding from Amos Franke, Chris Silva, Shawn Franz, Greg Flag and Gabe Truax. Thanks to all of the filmers that helped out: Anthony Bloch, Michael Baker, Peter Dai, Zach StClair, Ruthless Aussie, Graham McCallum, Colin Cameron, T-rev May, Phil Bellefeuille and Zach Rampen
Chris recently spent some time in the LA area. This is what he had to say about it:
“MacNeil Bikes sent me out to Los Angeles for a couple of weeks during the cold Canadian winter. I spent most of my time with Andrew Lazaruk & Rick Thorne emptying out and riding pools. Instead of taking the sessions too serious, I just set my phone on top of whatever was around and recorded some clips. This edit is in exact order of the pools and sessions we had.
Thanks again to Andrew & Rick for taking me along on the adventures, as well as Adam22 and the OSS crew for letting me crash at their house.”
Canada’s favorite greasy, fast, 200 pound Italian tank, Greg Henry put out this great edit over on
the Dig site. Click and enjoy.
Anyone who has been to Winnipeg knows that here are so many crazy spots and this edit that Graham McCallum has put together of Shawn Franz riding a lot of creative and wild set ups does a great job of showing that. Hit play and book a ticket to the middle of Canada. A big thanks goes out to Graham and Shawn for putting this together.
The Come Up posted Silva’s entire section their site.
Here is what they had to say about it.
We are extremely excited to premiere Chris Silva’s mind blowing ender section from
Macneil‘s “Any Means Necessary” DVD. Anybody who knows anything is aware that
Chris is one of the most innovative and progressive pegless street riders of all
time and his lifelong search for set up’s and clips throughout the streets of Toronto
hasn’t slowed down much in the past few years. Check this out and if you enjoy it,
by all means check out the rest of the DVD here.
Saskatchewan’s number one son, Braden Beck takes us on a tour of the spots in Saskatoon and shows us what’s what from every corner of the Bridge City. It’s rumoured that one clip in here took over 100 hundred tries.
Thanks to Kelly Bragg at Spoke ’N’ Sport and Pete Olsen for filming. Edited by Braden himself.
Gabe just had his 2015 edit go up on The Come Up and it is straight fire! Hit play and enjoy!
