The other night we loaded Adam and Amos' bikes and some camera gear into the truck and headed out of Vancouver to check out a dam that has been high on our list of spots to ride. We weren't disappointed. Both Amos and Adam threw down. Check the rest of the pics after the jump.
Big 30th happy birthday goes out to our good friend and rider Chris Silva. If you see him rolling around Toronto say, "parabens, felix aniversario" to our Portuguese Canadian shredder.
Dillon Lloyd, longtime MacNeil team rider has let us know that starting in July in he will be riding for another bike company. We wish him the best of luck in the future. A great rider and a great guy.
The boys at Ascent Cycle in Lethbridge, AB are throwing a Canada Day Jam at their new local skatepark located at Henderson Park which is where all the Canada Day events happen. It should be a blast so if you're in the area you should try and make it out.
Repset's own Cory Beal sent through these pics from the annual Mayhem Jam that he put on a couple of weeks back in Winnipeg, one of Canada's best BMX cities. Check all of the images after the jump.
If you're in the Toronto area tomorrow, be sure to hit up the ICC video premiere going down at the infamous Dufferin Grove skatepark. Our dude Chris Silva and the rest of the ICC crew have been putting in work in front of and behind the lens on this for a bit so it should be pretty dope. Get out there to ride and hang out with the dudes and catch the video!
Chris Silva just got back from a solid trip down through the States with the Animal dudes and sent over a ton of photos for a little travel diary update. Check out a stack of pics and words from his travels after the jump and keep an eye open for some new Silva goodness soon! Wating to board in Toronto. Getting on the plane the fun way. Picked up at the Newark, NJ airport on a rainy night. Driving down to Johnson, Tennessee for a shop stop. Weekend hotel. Shop stop at Angry Penguin. Front of the shop. Parking lot jam. Autograph session. At Hooters for dinner. Worst meal and beer of the trip. Night out. This bar was like a carnival inside. Most random people from old to young, tall to small. Weirdest scene ever. Packin' up. Van life. Finally made it to Clifton.

Old warehouse with some crazy shit to ride inside. Street session in Brooklyn. Castle on the side of a cliff. View of the city from the top of the cliff.
Our Greek connection, John Manaras, and the Bogiatiland crew just finished and premiere their new video, ‘Forget About It’, last week. John’s been killin’ it this past season and this edit gives you an idea of what to expect from his part in ‘Any Means Necessary,’ coming soon. Thanks to the dudes at TCU for dropping this one for us. Filmed and edited by Anas Mansour.
Young Gun Adam Piatek has been recovering from a broken collar bone the last bit but is already out and shredding in the Vancouver area. He was sitting on a stack of park clips that didn't make the cut for his part in our upcoming team video, 'Any Means Necessary,' so we put them together in this quick mix. Press play and watch out for his full part in 'Any Means Necessary,' coming soon! Filmed by Pawel Podgorny, Owen Dawson, Zach Rampen. Edited by Zach Rampen.
