15 Mar Sun to Snow – Greg Henry is a Tank

[youtube id=”cK7L3WM91MY”]

Greg Henry has been making a name for himself through smooth and heavy peg usage for the majority of the last decade. GH has adopted a new namesake, and The 200lb Greasy Italian Tank hasn’t slowed down a bit despite bustin’ his ass full time on the jobsite.

This collection of footage was filmed by Chris Cadot and released via DIG BMX about a month ago, featuring Greg Henry himself putting pegs down on a huge variety of spots throughout last summer. This one was worth a watch when it dropped, and it’s worth a watch now whether you missed it or not. Enjoy!

[vimeo id=”151837229″]

The Northern Embassy is always up to something awesome for Canadian BMX. Earlier this January they put together a contest featuring a ton of well known Canadian shredders, along with an Expert jam/session where the winner gets to join the Pro Teams for an invite-only part of the contest. Everyone threw down, including REPSET’s very own Chijioke and Greg Henry. The highlight video above features a ton of crazy footage from Dillon Lloyd (Team Captain), Mike Gray (Team Captain), Ryan Eles, Brandon Webster, Eli Taylor, Justin Hughes, Gabe Truax, Dean Hartley, Spencer Ryan Greg Henry, and Chijioke Okafo.

[youtube id=”Qc3HjPLsrDg”]

I’ve said many words about Chris Silva over the years, but only rarely do we get to share a full section from Toronto’s most prolific street rider. Chris stacked four minutes of his pegless rail destruction into this video with a ton of unique spots and setups sprinkled throughout. Watch it in full above, and catch my all time favourite pegless-Silva section below.

15 Jan Looking back at Brad Hill’s 2012 SD Footage

[vimeo id=”60029211″]

This video brings me back to a really fun era of Canadian BMX. Back in the day, Brad Hill was fortunate enough to tag along with various squads and teams across the country for some of Tenpack’s (RIP) tours and trips. Brad re-posted this edit recently, and I thought it’d be perfect to revive on the REPSET website as well. With this video featuring footage from Greg Henry, Chijioke Okafo, Phil Bartlett, and many many other Canadian shredders it goes without saying that this is worth a fresh watch. Tons of Winnipeg footage, too. Enjoy!

22 Dec STAY MAD with Jaumell Campbell

[vimeo id=”147406011″]

The Stay Mad Movement has been running almost as long as Jaumell has been down with the ‘SET. Our homie in Edmonton teamed up with Jared Chilko, Canada’s Lookback Ambassador. behind the lens to whip together this montage of the elusive Jams.

We’re a little late on sharing this one, but it almost feels like the schedule fits the riding, the edit, and Jaumell’s style perfectly. Better late than never, done right, relaxed, with Edmonton stizz and Canada steez to top it off.

06 Nov Ian Peters unveils his ‘Endless Summer’ project.

[vimeo id=”144277279″]

Ian Peters hails from just outside Winnipeg and has been quietly making his mark on BMX since first showing up to the city on his bright red Sunday kit. After releasing an awesome and well received compilation edit last year (“Let’s Try That Again!“), Ian decided to keep the tradition alive and travelled over 6000km to put together this amazing second instalment.

Featuring footage from across the prairies, Chicago, and even some clips from our annual SUMMER SLAM contest. This is definitely worth watching and an excellent keepsake for everyone involved. Thanks to Ian for putting together this video. At the end of the day REPSET was founded to promote BMX and the fun that goes with it, so this really hits home.

We’ve got some words from Ian below, and a Leftovers section too! The execution was nailed on this one.

From March until October 2015, my friends & I filmed daily to make this project come together. It was a huge undertaking but I am happy with the result. The Idea was to build on the video i made last year (“Let’s Try That Again!”) and make a video with a similar layout, but bigger and better. I travelled over 6,000 kms to ride different skateparks and explore different cities and have a good time along the way. This was filmed all over Manitoba as well as in Regina SK, Kenora ON & Chicago IL.

Huge thanks to all of my friends who helped me out behind and infront of the camera and to Matt Perrin & Hayden Mills for going on trips with me. The highlight of the summer was in July when Matt & I drove to Chicago, IL to attend the annual for the Monster Energy Street Series. That’s Augie Aughinbaugh with that crazy crooked grind down the kinker which was one of the spots we stopped at during the event. Enjoy.

04 Nov Brenten Wylie’s Plaza Edit

[vimeo id=”142758553″]

Brenten had the camera out during a fall session at Winnipeg’s huge downtown plaza and caught moves from the squad. The caption on this was ‘too lazy to ride street’, but definitely not too lazy to lay a bunch of dope moves down. Featuring Curtis Kroeker, Louelle Smith, and Seth Belmore.
