The Canadian scene is poppin’, especially once you put all the talent under one roof. The Canadian Street Invitational recently went down at Joyride 150 and the battle for top honors was HEATED. Check out riding from, Eli Taylor, Mike Gray, Ryan Eles, Brandon Webster, Greg Henry, Chijioke Okafe, Gabe Truax, Austin Karker, Dean Hartley and Spencer Ryan.
“Last Saturday January 9th, the first annual Joyride 150 X Northern Embassy Canadian Street Invitational was held.
The idea was simple, invite 10 amazing Canadian pros who live in the Ontario/Quebec area and watch them destroy the street room of Joyride 150. We although thought it could be awesome to host an Expert jam before the pros where each pro team would choose one expert.
The experts killed it and two were chosen: Cole Ramseyer and Austin Karker.
Dillon Lloyd (injured)
Both teams went off but team 1 would be named the champs. The overall vibe/atmosphere of the contest (if you even want to call it that) was amazing. Non competitive, just people stoked to be riding together and chilling together, which is the best. 2017’s will be bigger and better, start planning to come out to next years!
We can't thank Joyride 150 enough for allowing this event to happen there. If not for Joyride's expansion and creation of the street room years ago, many Ontario riders would suffer all winter having no real indoor spot to go to. Also thanks to Joyride for whipping up a new rail for the contest. Huge thanks to MC Prashant and Paul Hoerdt, filmers Chris Cadot, Joel Fortin and Mason Gray, all the riders who came out (especially Mike Gray/ Dilllon Lloyd for delaying their trips back to Cali for this event). Last but not least, a huge thanks to all of the sponsors: Haro, WTP, Vans, Eclat, Radio, The Boiler Room, Merritt, Fiend, Federal!
See you next year!!
