Watch the crew hit the road for one legendary roadtrip on the American East Coast. With only 7 days to ahead of them, the boys left Montreal and headed straight to FDR Skatepark, were lucky enough to ride Ryan Nyquist's The Unit, visited the Industry 9 Headquarters the best spots North Carolina has to offer, and then booked it back to Canada just in time for the Oktobikerfest in Trois-Rivières. With so many legendary spots in the mix, no need to say everyone was more than stoked! We want to take a minute to thank everyone at Industry 9. especially Joe Haley for being the best host one could ask for and driving us around North Carolina, you're the best dude! Shoutout to photography masterchef Julien Grimard for snapping the stills below aswell!

Before it gets too cold to ride bikes outside, we had to visit The Brose Farm for one last weekend to shred some of the finest jumps Ontario has to offer. Surrounded by a lake, fields and forests, The Brose Farm is one of the nicest place to ride bikes during the Fall season. The colder weather is perfect to hold the dirt together and the surroundings are simply beautiful to look at when you're on top of the rollin trying to catch your breath. Since out Austria team rider John New was in Canada, it was a must to bring him over there to show him how nice of a place it is. Despite having our sunday session cancelled by the rain, everyone had a bast and we can't wait to go back next year! Not too sure how to put this in words, but there's a lot of sick stuff in this one. Ben Desjardins sets the bar pretty high right off the start, followed by riding from Zach Horne, Al Faruggia, Michel Plonka and John New. Peep the video above and the pictures below. Huge shoutout to Josh Brose and the Brose family for being awesome people and always treating us like kings!

We've been talking about having the crew over at Nick's house for a while now, but it was always hard to find the right timing for everyone. When Aidan Horn told us he was coming to Montreal for a month, we had no choice but to make it happen. Nick Clarke basically has the best backyard you can ask for, thanks to his insane Backyard Ramps and his pool! When you ride such a setup for the first time, it's always hard to figure out the lines and the transitions at first, but in the end, everyone killed it and and it was beautiful to witness! Check out the video above by Louis Lhomel and a photogallery below by JEremy Menduni.
Big thanks to Nick Clarke and his parents for having us, can't wait till next time!
HTC contains something that can't really be described, but as soon as one experiences it, the human brain amorces a never-ending battle opposing your will to continue to your decreasing physical abilities. The HTC is more commonly known as a training center, but when you get down to the basics of it, it's and opportunity to fly with your homies while having the best time ever. Few weeks ago, we headed to America's Finest Biking Destination, Highland Mountain Bike Park, to ride dirt jumps, downhill and the HTC. As this was right before Crankworks, we ran into Thomas Genon and Thomas Lemoine as they were on site to perfection their stunts for their upcoming contest. Safe to say both dudes are super chill and kill it on bikes no matter what they ride! Check out the video of our session with them in the HTC, and peep the photogallery below! Huge Shoutout to Highland Mountain Bike Park for hooking us up with rental bikes and a private HTC session!
