Re-Up: MacNeil Vancouver Island Getaway

As most of the northern hemisphere is starting to, or already have, feeling the chill of the oncoming winter we thought we should re-post our Vancouver Island Getaway video. Back in June a few of the guys on the team packed up in a car with Zach Rampen and headed out to Vancouver island for some exploring, riding, camping, and general summer fun. Give the video another watch with Greg Flag, Sam Lowe, and Taylor Elvy and a gallery of photos on the micro-site we made here shot by Brad Hill.

Jeff, Silva, and Taylor in Vancouver

Jeff and Silva flew out to Vancouver and met up with Taylor Elvy back in August for an Animal Bikes trip. They had a jam at the Chuck Bailey skatepark, cruised some streets, and even hit a swimming hole. Check out this video of their time out there. Sam Lowe even sneaks a clip in too.

Chris Silva Ramp Clinic

When Silva was on a recent Ten Pack trip they stopped at the Block Party Jam at D-Structure shop in Montreal. He threw on a couple pegs and dusted off some of his spine tricks and put on a ramp riding clinic. Check him in the video above.

Silva and Dillon – Ten Pack Ottawa/Montreal Weekend

Back in July Silva and Dill jumped in a van with the Ten Pack crew and drove from Toronto to Ottawa to Montreal for a weekend or riding and a shop jam (Dillon’s riding got cut short from a bad slam). Check out the video from their trip and a gallery of some behind the scenes photos from the road here.

Chris Silva’s Vancouver Photo Journal

Chris Silva was out on the west coast in and around Vancouver for just under a month. Wherever Chris goes, his camera phone goes too, and you know he’ll be taking photos the entire time. Check out another instalment of his photo journal after the jump.

Jeff has been out in Vancouver for the last week on an Animal/Ten Pack trip and on his last day wanted to visit some of the popular and famous bowls and snake runs that the city has to offer. Here he is blasting the Seylynn snake run like a local. Photo by Chijo Okafo.

Dill and Silva On The Road

Dillon and Silva have been on the road for the last few days riding and filming in Ottawa and Montreal. Dillon had some bad luck with an enormous crash on the first day and had to end it early, but he has proven to be indestructible and walked away without any broken bones. Check out some more updates on the Ten Pack Distribution site.

Vancouver Island Getaway – One Six Shop Stop

During our Vancouver Island Getaway trip the crew made their way to One Six Bikes & Boards in Victoria, BC to hang out and session their indoor mini setup. Thanks to everyone at One Six for their hospitality!
