With travel restrictions and mandatory quarantines making international travel as easy as building a wheel with your hands tied behind your back... Mike Gray has been tucked away in Canada, quietly shredding roofs, ledges, banks and rails with the Toronto homies, stacking clips for his latest project.
As winter approaches each year, Canadian riders will try and find any reason to head for warmer weather once the snow starts flying. This year was obviously different. With the global pandemic surging, traveling has been restricted and the typical winter migration impossible. Leaving ‘snowbirds’ like Mike Gray in a state of flux.
With the Canadian fall and winter transition in full effect, Mike Gray, accompanied by filmer Joel Fortin, took to Toronto's streets to get some shit done before it was too late - any dry day was made the most of! Needless to say, Mike filmed some incredible clips for this, including his passion for rooftops and technical rail moves. The ender in this is bananas! There's even some guesties from 3 other Vans Canada riders to boot.
Mike Gray was in town for a few days, so we organized a little DTP session for you guys with the Haro squad. Mike, Chad Kerley, Blake Peters (who was fresh off a broken wrist) and newcomer to the Haro team, Austyn Mcintosh, all dropped the pin in a bit of an industrial area in the middle of SD.
