Chris Silva hit up the 3Ride Toronto backyard ramp and put a serious hurt on it a bit ago with good pal Steven Moxley. Press play and watch the madness!
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.

The grand opening jam at 3Ride's new Toronto location was so much fun; everyone shredded the backyard ramps, hung out, ate some BBQ and got a bit swirly. Thanks so much to Ty and everyone at 3Ride for putting it all together! Chijioke was in kill-mode for the rest of the weekend putting some finishing touches on his welcome edit and Jack Leonard got some dope clips as well. Check out some more photos after the jump! Brandon Webster, boosted fakie bar. Chris Silva with one of the wildest footjam variations ever, the candy jam. Shit is seriously so crazy. Jack Leonard, burger break. Chijioke dustin' off some ramp tricks. Randomly came across this rail on the way to another spot and Chi banged up a dope clip on it. A little celebratory chardonnay courtesy of Captain Cadot for Chi at Uprail School. Jack Leonard, bike hop to start a line. Chi testing out the dangle factor before going in.
This Saturday a bunch of the crew, including Chijioke Okafo, Chris Silva, Jack Leonard and more, will be in attendance for the grand opening of 3Ride's new Toronto store. There's going to be some parking lot ramps, a BBQ, and tons of fun. Come out, say hi, ride with the crew and have a blast!
This upcoming long weekend, we're swinging down from Toronto to Rochester, NY with a crew including Greg Henry, Jack Leonard, Chijioke Okafo and Chris Silva. From the 18th to the 21st we're gonna be cruising around the area so if you see us out and about, come and say hi! Follow us on Instagram at @macneilbikes and follow the #MACNEILROC hashtag to see what we get up to. Watch out for an edit from the trip in a couple weeks!
It's never been a difficult thing for Silva to stack clips and over the course of last year he did exactly that and then some. Aside from his entire DVD section and his recent Ten Pack edit, Silva put together this dope freecoaster edit and hooked up with Ride BMX to feature it on their site along with an interview. Head over to the Ride site to check out the whole interview and watch out for more from Silva soon. We'll keep you posted on the freecoaster development as well, good things take time!
