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.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 15:57)
(Nov 13, 2012 at 16:22)
When even the riders say Norbs got robbed and that the judging sucked... goes to show just how awful it was.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 17:21)
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!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 17:48)
I love to see riders with other outside interests, that was awesome.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 18:10)
seems like judging this year was fucked up. joyride, rampage, etc...
(Nov 13, 2012 at 19:54)
idk. maybe its just me. but the way semenuk talks and his skinny tall body feature reminds me of marilyn manson.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 22:05)
Its hard to not be pissed off for Norbs when the riders also agree he got robbed. Pretty sad....
(Nov 13, 2012 at 22:38)
Totally off topic but u have to check this out
Good old redbull...
(Nov 14, 2012 at 6:13)
Good to see all the other riders thought Norbs got robbed too.
(Nov 15, 2012 at 8:32)
If Martin says it... it's more than true
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:02)
only semenuk would be first in the FMB world tour then 5th come fifth overall for nationls in rally car...
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:26)
its not the nationals... its a CRC race. there's still one more to go. follow this link
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:33)
do Canada particularly do rallying??
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:37)
theres alot of rallying to be done in canada!! so many fire roads and backroads to practice one. just do it safely.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 15:54)
thanks for posting that link makripper
(Nov 14, 2012 at 5:20)
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
(Nov 14, 2012 at 6:38)
"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....
(Nov 14, 2012 at 11:04)
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.
(Nov 14, 2012 at 13:13)
You are a sad, sad individual
(Nov 14, 2012 at 16:34)
@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
(Nov 13, 2012 at 13:55)
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.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:16)
what is this poll you speak of?
(Nov 13, 2012 at 15:21)
LBB has to be my favorite thing on Pinkbike, stoked for the next episode.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 15:23)
the poll is already made, but will run with a interview on one of the judges.
(Nov 14, 2012 at 14:03)
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:30)
TEACHER: What do you wanna be when you grow up?
KID: I wanna be Brandon Semenuk.
(Nov 15, 2012 at 22:51)
Boss: What do you want to be when you grow up?
Me (20): I wanna be Brandon Semenuk.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 15:00)
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
(Nov 13, 2012 at 16:19)
Yeah it's so cool to see the camaraderie between these guys even though they are competing against each other.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 19:25)
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.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 13:45)
so raddd i wish i had semenuks life !
(Nov 13, 2012 at 18:40)
Kyle finally getting recognition for his run! The judging was horrible I was there.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:43)
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.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 21:20)
Is he actually WINNING races??? His driving ws pretty poor in this vid.
(Nov 15, 2012 at 22:52)
They said he posted the top time in one round.
(Nov 15, 2012 at 23:39)
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...
(Nov 13, 2012 at 18:10)
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
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:25)
Norbzy was FUCKING robbed ! amazing run... he should have gotten top 3 imo
(Nov 13, 2012 at 19:26)
2 x 3s + doerfling's run .
(Nov 13, 2012 at 16:10)
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!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 22:19)
do some work on his driving? he got fifth overall at a national rally event....i think hes doing just fine driving.....
(Nov 13, 2012 at 23:47)
do you think Thomas vanderham is a semenuk fan?
(Nov 14, 2012 at 23:13)
he's just coming from the rampagne and doing a rally race? this IS impressive!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:42)
I found one thing in common i have with him. i drive a subie also and that's about it. haha
(Nov 13, 2012 at 18:44)
hahaha yep. That's about all I have in Common with him too.
(Nov 17, 2012 at 13:33)
So, you guys don't ride MTB's?
(Nov 19, 2012 at 7:25)
if you compare my riding mtbs to brandon's riding mtbs... then hell no. i don't ride mtbs.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 16:55)
is there anything that Semenuk cant do SO WELL ??
(Nov 13, 2012 at 21:18)
Drive a Rally car???
(Nov 14, 2012 at 9:33)
@The-Medic: so you're a better driver. Tells us about some of your big rally wins then.
(Nov 14, 2012 at 12:57)
Yes... Lots more time behind the wheel will do that
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
is all I'm saying.
Old Car:... 2007 OTR
New Car... Red Car blue car..
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:04)
Great driving Semenuk!!!
(Nov 14, 2012 at 7:47)
The second half of the video really makes me wish I still had my rally Porsche...
(Nov 13, 2012 at 13:47)
This is what reading day is for!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 23:14)
so sick shows hes an all round sports man to winning FMB and then the rally overall but im not happy about the next episode him riding bmx 0.o
(Nov 14, 2012 at 0:19)
The french Semenuk is Sebastien LOEB, deal with it in the rally game
(Nov 14, 2012 at 10:53)
guys song at 0:13 - 0:18? someone come on!!!!!!!!
(Nov 14, 2012 at 0:31)
Brandon and Pastrana should get together
(Nov 17, 2012 at 1:55)
That was cool. Driving segment was awesome.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 23:59)
in a 'basically stock car' !?! ...makes it that much more impressive!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 18:29)
judges are wack
(Nov 13, 2012 at 13:48)
At last...! That was like the longest wait EVER.. FACT.
(Nov 14, 2012 at 15:18)
was Brandon rolling a big cracker after his second Rampage run?
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:03)
Been waiting all day for this!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 16:13)
not xsist best combination!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 18:12)
wtf is up with security at 2:00ish? secret service or what?
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:23)
god beat him with the talent stick
(Nov 17, 2012 at 10:37)
(Dec 10, 2012 at 4:57)
(Nov 17, 2012 at 2:31)
what a life~~~ Amazing
(Nov 13, 2012 at 17:07)
brandon's awesome but pastrana's in a whole different league
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:22)
Man of many talents!
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:15)
(Nov 13, 2012 at 14:50)
(Nov 13, 2012 at 21:17)
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.
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Nov 14, 2012 at 11:18)
Semenuk @ 1:15 "kinda easier than slope-style honestly"
His arrogance is ridiculous. I wonder if he still feels that way?
(Nov 14, 2012 at 15:49)
Don't really think he meant that rampage is easier than slopestyle, just that he gets more nervous before a slopestyle run.
(Nov 13, 2012 at 21:15)
Brandon: Awesme riding skills... not so much with the driving skills
