Yesterday things in Toronto went off with qualifying for the 2016 Toronto X Jam! With heavy hitters like Drew Bezanson, Steven Moxley, Joel Bondu, Nick Bullen, Cory Wiergowski, Corey Walsh, Nick Bruce, Colton Walker and more all dropping in, you know plenty of amazing riding went down. We had photographer Chase Davidson out there snapping photos. Below is a link to a fresh photogallery giving you a look at some of the ridiculous riding that went down! Expect more from Finals soon!
For this years Ray’s MTB “Odd Couple” contest, Albe’s own Cory Wiergowski and Adam Hauck teamed up with Jeff Tabb to produce a section that landed these guys in 2nd place. The riding is awesome and Jeff did an amazing job with the film work. Hit play and enjoy!
“JUST HIT PLAY
Crisp, clean riding and editing is what we expect from the crew at Albe’s. But nothing could prepare us for the unbelievable symphony that Adam & Cory play for us! Shoutout to Jeff Tabb on the film and edit.

WHAT’S THE JUDGING CRITERIA
Videos were judged by the world premiere spectators and panel of special celebrity judges on these 5 criteria:
RIDING (20%) – overall quality of both riders.
FILMING & EDITING (20%) – overall presentation by the editor and filmers.
CREATIVITY (20%) – obstacles used as they were not designed to be used.
PARK USAGE (20%) — the terrain was used to the fullest.
ODD COUPLE VIBE (20%) – this video felt like something you’d only see at Ray’s.
This could only happen with the unwavering support of our Odd Couple sponsors. Gravity Components and FSA, Albe’s BMX Mailorder, Kali Protectives, Hayes Performance Systems and Kink BMX, SR Suntour suspension, and Decline Magazine.”
To go along with the regular Dew Tour pro contest, they threw an AM contest last weekend as well. Check out what a ton of familiar faces along with a few unheard of guys threw down in this highlight video!
“Early on Saturday, Dew Tour threw a little-known event by the name of Futures, inviting 12 of the best AM (couple of exceptions here) street riders under the age of 25 in the midwest to come show what the future of BMX will look like…definitely a few dudes in this that I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of in the future. Shout out to Dew Tour for having an event like this (although, I think they should have filmed and put out their own edit, as well—no shots)…

Cory Wiergowski has been on the down low for a little while now healing up from some injuries, but now he’s back to full strength and absolutely DESTROYING the streets. Here’s his brand new video for Merritt that is PACKED full of heat. This is one BMX video you do not want to pass up. Grinds, lines and plenty of forecaster action in this!

Cory Wiergowski and his ramp building crew under the Ramped Construction title recently re-built the Building 21 skatepark! To celebrate, a bunch of people turned out for the opening session like Cory, the Bullen brothers, Jason Govan and Ryan Wert to break the new setup in! Take a peek and see what went down!
