This year’s Toronto X-Jam was pretty unreal, more so than usual. The course was amazing and there was a great mix of riders killing it all weekend long.

Greg Henry Bike Check & Instagram Giveaway

MCNL_art_attack

If you’ve ever seen Greg Henry out riding, odds are good that his bike is some sort of wild custom colour that was the result of a serious art attack. Greg recently did a custom job on his Borato V3 and sent over some photos of it as inspiration for the Instagram contest that we’re launching today.

The GH Art Attack contest is pretty straight forward, here’s what you have to do…

1) Get creative and give your bike the wildest custom paint job you can think of
2) Take a photo, upload it to Instagram and tag us (@macneilbikes) and include the hashtag #MCNLARTATTACK
3) Greg Henry will the be judge for the whole contest and will choose the winner
*Contest open to residents of Canada and USA only

The winner will receive a brand new Borato V3 frame, GH’s ride of choice at the moment. Get creative, get wild, and you could win yourself a fresh new frame! Contest closes Friday, October 24. Check out some more photos of Greg’s bike after the jump and get inspired!

Gene-seeing is Gene-believing Photogallery

title

Even though Chris Silva wasn’t able to join us and Greg Henry got hurt, our ‘Gene-seeing is Gene-believing’ trip down to Rochester, NY was still a blast. The footage collected while we were there will be going toward our ‘Any Means Necessary’ DVD as well as a couple of other projects but we still wanted to put something together from out time down there. Between Jack Leonard and TM Harley Haskett, we gathered a mix of film and digital, chilling and riding photos and put together a photogallery from the whole trip that you can check out at the link below. Thanks again to everyone in Rochester who hooked things up for us!

That’s a Wrap – #MACNEILROC

GH_chi_jack_dave

Our weekend in Rochester wrapped up yesterday and all of us are already missin’ the Roc. We had a blast with everyone down there and came away with some rad footage of the dudes. Greg Henry tweaked his ankle a bit on Sunday and had to lay low for the rest of the time but he fired out a bunch of awesome stuff in the first couple days. Both Jack and Chi stacked a bunch of wild stuff including a few NBD’s on some Rochester spots. Big thanks to our pal Dave Raffa for putting us up and showing us around and to Tony Hamlin, Dan Coller, Dave Fortman, Ryan Cork, everyone at Blackout for the session and all the other locals who made our stay all the more rad. Check out our Instagram for some photos from the trip and watch out for a photogallery that will be up soon, stay tuned!

The dudes at Northern Embassy put together this rad winter mix edit featuring some great indoor clips from Greg Henry, Chijioke Okafo and Dillon Lloyd.
