 This just goes to show how talented Brandon Semenuk is. To be able to win the overall FMB world tour and then do as well as he did in a rally race two days after takes a super special athlete. Lovin' this series.

 NORBS GOT ROBBED.....i dont care how many people have already said this.
  • + 41
 When even the riders say Norbs got robbed and that the judging sucked... goes to show just how awful it was.
  • + 5
 Im kinda starting to hate people in charge of mtb stuff like UCI for the pritty bad world cup scedual for us north americans and the judges at rampage for totaly hating on nords!
  • + 7
 I love to see riders with other outside interests, that was awesome.
  • + 7
 seems like judging this year was fucked up. joyride, rampage, etc...
  • + 3
 idk. maybe its just me. but the way semenuk talks and his skinny tall body feature reminds me of marilyn manson.
  • + 3
 Its hard to not be pissed off for Norbs when the riders also agree he got robbed. Pretty sad....

 Totally off topic but u have to check this out
Good old redbull...

  • + 7

 thanks for posting that link makripper

 I was just wondering as I've never heard of a Canadian driver in the WRC, I take it it's not quite as popular as in northern europe

 "To be able to win the overall FMB world tour and then do as well as he did in a rally race two days after takes a super special athlete" WTF....lol

 Looks like he was in a pretty stock WRX up against Sti's. To have rally porn and rampage porn in one clip is a wet dream for me.

 You are a sad, sad individual Smile

 @DC1988 Rally isn't really BIG here but we have the this series and TARGA out east in Newfoundland which is a much bigger race and gets some pretty good coverage, although it is mainly an on-road pro-am stage race

 Stoked! LBB is awesome! Hahaha I love Cam McCaul, hes hella chill. He and Norbs got ROBBED. They knew it and so do we. Hopefully we can set that right soon with that poll.
  • + 5
 what is this poll you speak of?
  • + 2
 LBB has to be my favorite thing on Pinkbike, stoked for the next episode.
  • + 1
 the poll is already made, but will run with a interview on one of the judges.

 really impressed to see who the same riders say who norbraten was robbed, although the rampage was 2 months ago, i still think who his run deserved a better score... and i feel happy for brandon and his victory in the rally race, this guy is a machine
  • + 7
 Yeah it's so cool to see the camaraderie between these guys even though they are competing against each other.
[Reply]
  • + 3
 Maybe one of these sponsors will see this and give him a better set up. He's clearly a better driver than a lot of those "other" guys that are getting big rides. Pretty damn impressive.

And yeah... comparing him to travis is silly at this point. But hey... he's got something he can do when he can't huck cliffs anymore so that's rad.

 so raddd i wish i had semenuks life !

 Kyle finally getting recognition for his run! The judging was horrible I was there.

 Branden really is a silent genius. The fact that he's excellent in all areas of the mountain bike AND he can win rally races is simply amazing.
  • + 1
 Is he actually WINNING races??? His driving ws pretty poor in this vid.
  • + 2
 They said he posted the top time in one round.
  • + 0
 Really??? Nice... Glad to hear he's making a good go at it. I still think he's got a lot of learning to do behind the wheel, but good on him for getting into Rally...
[Reply]
  • + 3
 is it me or did he bring like 4 of the exact same kits to rampage ahah. Or do they have a dry cleaner on site?1?!?1
[Reply]
  • + 4
 Norbzy was FUCKING robbed ! amazing run... he should have gotten top 3 imo
  • + 1
 2 x 3s + doerfling's run .
[Reply]

 Red Bull should get on it with a dual mountain biking and rally sponsorship. Just think what he could do with a factory team Subaru out there!
[Reply]
  • + 2
 do some work on his driving? he got fifth overall at a national rally event....i think hes doing just fine driving.....
[Reply]
  • + 3

 is there anything that Semenuk cant do SO WELL ??

 Drive a Rally car???

 @The-Medic: so you're a better driver. Tells us about some of your big rally wins then.
  • + 2
 Yes... Lots more time behind the wheel will do that Wink Sorry, but just because you're an "extreme sports athlete" doesn't mean you automaticaly know how to drive a car well on rough terrain or even the street/track. I' sure since it seems like he's enjoying himself that he'll continue to get better and better. Good for him, doesn't mean he's a very good driver now is all I'm saying.

Old Car:... 2007 OTR

 Brandon Pastrana...
  • + 0
 He's a pretty poor driver... great rider obviously, and I can relate to how addictive rally cars are, but his drivning has got some work to do behind the wheel.
