I can see why youve made the whole pastrana comaprison the freestyle/rally but even though brandon is amazing pretty sure he'd admit pastrana is on a whole different level
(Jul 11, 2012 at 12:38)
not really in terms of mtb and mx fairly similar to be honest
(Jul 11, 2012 at 14:49)
Azrun, I'm sorry to say this, but stfu dude.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 18:11)
I love Pastrana simply because he's got bigger balls then anyone I've ever seen but they are both beasts on the bike.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 20:49)
im sorry but ive got to clear things up, Travis Pastrana is a professional winner as in all he does is win at everything he does... Brandon Semenuk is just a professional MTBer... they are not on the same level
(Jul 11, 2012 at 21:58)
A professional winner? Yeah him and Charlie Sheen. And have you seen the amount of victories Semenuk has? All types of biking disciplines as well.
(Jul 12, 2012 at 4:09)
isaac marangoni i have no idea why your telling me to stfu, i didnt say brandon wasn't quality he is undoubtedly the best freerider out there and cant see anyone coming close, but in terms of action sports travis has still done much more just my opinion
(Jul 12, 2012 at 22:01)
ok Sheen really is a winner thats not a joke and Pastrana has wins in more sports then i want to list
(Jul 16, 2012 at 9:58)
The only thing Pastrana doesn't win in is NASCAR!
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:09)
It's nuts that he's so versatile. It seems he can apply his skill to anything. He's handy with the rally car and the MX bike as well as being the best freeride mountain biker in the world. Pretty amazing guy.
(Jul 10, 2012 at 18:03)
i wish they made a contest were you can win a weeks stay at his place
(Jul 10, 2012 at 18:14)
His yard is just..... uugghh. IM SO JEALOUS!
(Jul 10, 2012 at 18:40)
He's just showing the many benefits of being rich is all. if we had his money we would have the same life.
(Jul 10, 2012 at 19:11)
He's got money cause he's so good. Money doesn't just make you good.
(Jul 10, 2012 at 21:39)
even if he had money in the first place, it doesnt mean if you had the same you would be as good as him, unless you also landed in a cornfield with a radioactive asteriod...
(Jul 11, 2012 at 3:24)
It's a balance of money, your parents (how supportive they are initially), rider talent and opportunity. Brandon is very lucky to have amazing opportunities, and obviously his skill has made him top of his game. You never know, any of us here may be the worlds best rally drivers if we were given the opportunity
(Jul 11, 2012 at 4:20)
Yeah, well said. It's down to a combination of factors rather than one factor in isolation - although obviously the natural talent is the most important factor. Without that you're never going to make it big. Brendan is lucky enough to have been provided with oppertunities but it's because of the talent and hard work that he's so good at it.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 7:42)
I think what metalarc was trying to say was if he was rich he would buy the same things brandon has (Big house, sick yard and cars e.c.t) not he would be on the same skill level.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 11:22)
This episode is so good!! I didn't care much for his buddies, I just wanna watch Brandon shred!!
(Jul 11, 2012 at 13:26)
tom666 said it. Brandon has worked really damned hard to make the most of the talent he's got and become as good of a rider that he is. Definitely wasn't just handed to him.
(Jul 12, 2012 at 10:24)
Metalarc, he may have money but he doesnt spend it on his jumps notice how all the jumps have a RedBull sign on them thats because they pay for all the supplies!
(Jul 12, 2012 at 11:02)
@tom666 it's due to a combination of factors and the most important factor is HARD WORK. you can't say natural talent got brandon semenuk where he is today. maybe he was the best out of all his friends in high school, but what got him to where he is is his work ethic. anyone who actually knows brandon will tell you how hard of a worker he is and they'll most likely go on and on about how hard he works to be the best.
(Jul 12, 2012 at 11:07)
I would disagree, although I'm not taking anything away from him. If he didn't have the natural talent, no matter how hard he worked he wouldn't be the best in the world. Of course you need both factors together to get the real deal, but all the top end dudes work really hard and the work ethic isn't what seperates him from guys like pilgrim and lacondeguy.
(Jul 12, 2012 at 11:12)
yes it is. it all comes down to how badly you want it. just like what Darren Berreclothe said in Seasons: "It takes a little bit of talent and a whole lot of hard work." natural talent may help you get comfortable on a bike quicker than other kids, but natural talent didn't win brandon Red Bull Joyride, or Rampage, it didn't teach him frontflip barspins, it didn't get him all his sponsors. HARD WORK got him all that.
(Jul 12, 2012 at 11:35)
Getting comfortable isn't when natural talent stops helping you. All the top dudes work really hard. The hard work got him to being a professional, but what seperates Brandon form other people who work just as hard as him is the talent and other factors we mentioned. If you think Brandon is the only guy in freeride who wants it and is the only guy who works really hard you're greatly mistaken. All the top pros work rediculessly hard and have earned their place in the top ranks, but it's at this point where everyone is working crazy hard that other factors separate them. As we said, it's not all one factor in isolation.
(Jul 12, 2012 at 21:43)
yeah it's not all just one factor, but using "natural talent" as an excuse for others not being as good as him is just lame. it's pathetic. it's like blaming your gear for your poor riding. it all comes down to how well YOU perform and how much YOU want it.
(Jul 14, 2012 at 23:39)
its not even a thing of "hard work", or "Natural Talent". when you have money you have the time. he can afford to buy a helicopter Im sure.and with his doe he's got the time to learn to fly it, and become good at it. proffessional Bike riding is pure love but its a known fact that they (pro riders) are not making NFL players money. I mean even the creaters of the parts he's using dont live in houses like that.. he is a rich kidd enjoying a poor mans sport because flipping on a bike happens to be a little more fun then playing polo. and somewhere along the line someone in a company who knew someone who knew him got him to be a poster boy to help make this getting expensive sport look even better to the poor man who works two jobs to buy these parts and still have the love to do it but can only do it on the weekends. yes the Bike has become the new flying machine but pure love alone will not help companies make the parts to make them fly even higher . they get rich kidds like Brandon to help them hustle funds to make it happen . otherwise most of yall will wake up and realise 700 hundred dollars is just to much for a bike much less a crank.
(Jul 15, 2012 at 8:45)
Semenuk probably loves the sport more than most riders... He was smart, gave himself a good public image, was conservative with his money.. He doesn't party every nght like a lot of pros. Hard work is more than just riding a lot. He's earned everythin he has and don't hate on that just because you have to start farther back than he did or because you haven't gotten to where you want to be just yet.
(Jul 15, 2012 at 10:11)
@metalarc: biking is NOT a poor mans sport! you're right though, 700$ is a lot of money, but is pennies compared to the cost of a bike to compete at a world class level.
(Jul 15, 2012 at 10:15)
I'd go as far as to say biking is the opposite of a poor man's sport. Most of the people I know who ride are teenagers from middle class families and older guys who have a fair amount of money to drop on good kit. People on low incomes can't afford to spend £50 on a handlebar.
(Jul 17, 2012 at 19:29)
hahahah you guys are writin paragraphs and not geting any pros ^^^^^^^^^^
(Jul 31, 2012 at 14:58)
neither are you ...
(Aug 3, 2012 at 17:02)
actually this is a sentence and scroll up and i have 42 props
(Jul 10, 2012 at 22:52)
Its kinda hard to tell if he is shredding his rally car or not after watching ken block's gymkhana 5..
(Jul 11, 2012 at 18:21)
I didn't really like how they put the whole sequence of him driving his car in slow motion. Would have liked to see how truly fast he was going.
(Jul 10, 2012 at 22:33)
I remember when I used to be jealous of Cam Mcauls pool jump - now Cam probably feels the same way about Semenuk's back yard. Seriously - airbag, mulch jump, and full slopestyle course - talking about having an edge over the competition.
(Jul 12, 2012 at 3:05)
I think we all know why Semenuk is the best now!
(Jul 10, 2012 at 20:36)
One day........... Just one day I will win the lottery!! Then I can have all this too!!! Haha it's good to laugh or I'll cry, it's good to dream or I'll die!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Jul 11, 2012 at 2:17)
Brandon is the man! I just feel bad for his competition, when you compare the "yard" and surrounding mountains available to him to what say Pilgrim has (a few jumps and some skateparks). It's not difficult to see why he has the edge on a lot of bigger courses when he can ride that stuff day in day out.
Either way, a lot of people could have those opportunities and still not come close to what Brandon is achieving, he is on another level.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 3:37)
simple, the rest should move to canada and then they have it all... I guess it's not that hard when your a pro and all...
(Jul 11, 2012 at 22:30)
Completely move their whole life away from their friends and family and everything that is familiar to them. It would be just as hard as any other person.
(Jul 16, 2012 at 4:25)
Hibbard, what do you know you're 16 years old.. If you want to do it right and make a career some sacrifices must be made.. Oh god! gotta move to Whistler, the worst place in the world for a mountain biker..
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:22)
Awesome! More Coastal Crew
(Jul 11, 2012 at 11:30)
this is actually centered around brandon, hence the redbull sponsorship/..,
(Jul 11, 2012 at 9:15)
The roof drop is amazing. The thing that made it look hard was that there was almost no run up at all, it was straight onto the takeoff. Semenuk is an amazing rider and good luck to him for the rest of the season.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 2:29)
Episode 6 and I only just realized why its called "life behind bars"
(Jul 15, 2012 at 14:54)
(Jul 25, 2012 at 2:37)
Life behind a set of handle bars....
(Jul 26, 2012 at 12:53)
ohhh, that makes sense
(Jul 10, 2012 at 16:59)
I always enjoy these episodes so much, every episode there is something new and even the bug-eye wrx is pretty sweet.
(Jul 10, 2012 at 23:00)
More coastal crew! And I hope there's some behind the scenes stuff in the next episodes from all the comps too, that'd be sick. Awsome edit though.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 8:34)
I really enjoy these episodes, its so much fun to watch and it really makes me want to get out and ride! Can't wait for Claymore on the 21st (hope he's there)!
(Jul 11, 2012 at 5:56)
If this show was a full 30 min show itd def be more tv worthy than some of that other bs they show on fuel...
(Jul 10, 2012 at 16:52)
YES!!! Ive been checking all day! I started getting nervous that there wasnt going to be one this week!
(Jul 11, 2012 at 18:34)

(Jul 10, 2012 at 18:28)

(Jul 11, 2012 at 16:57)
So good to see Logan back on the bike!
(Jul 10, 2012 at 16:53)
Brandon, will you marry me?!
(Jul 10, 2012 at 16:55)
He's to fucking good that guy... At everything.
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:01)
This guy is absolutely bananas! good for you Brandon
(Jul 11, 2012 at 10:34)
I wish I was Brandon Semenuk...
(Jul 12, 2012 at 3:47)

(Jul 10, 2012 at 16:54)
my palms got sweaty at the roof drop part!
(Jul 10, 2012 at 20:02)
I just assumed mph cause he said the helicopter couldn't keep up. Most helicopter cruse between 130-160mph, especially the one they were using. 180 kmh is only 111mph
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:56)
that was sick
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:35)
(Jul 10, 2012 at 19:28)
nice roof drop
(Jul 10, 2012 at 22:46)
Sickest LBB yet.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 12:09)
(Jul 10, 2012 at 20:08)
its finally here
(Jul 10, 2012 at 19:54)

(Jul 11, 2012 at 1:32)
only 111mph?!!- crashing at that speed ain't gonna be pretty.
(Jul 11, 2012 at 13:37)
Haha, "only" 111. Most people get scared doing over 100 on a nice and wide freeway, and he's on DIRT! Doing 100+ on dirt is pretty nerve wracking I imagine. I havent gone faster than 90 on dirt *yet* bc of damned Ford Rangers' governor. But even 90, it's totally different than hauling on the street, man. Shit, even at 60, you feel like you're at warp speed. Braking distances, traction in general, is all so much less and combine that with narrow rough roads and trees/cactus/boulders/whatever blitzing past, it's just an entirely different experience.

barecloth is the pastrana of mtbing
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:47)
(Jul 10, 2012 at 18:11)
In the thumb nail it says seminuk is the pastrana of mtbing I'm saying he's good but not it
(Jul 10, 2012 at 19:13)
Rally cars don't go 180mph +.......... just say'n. lol
(Jul 10, 2012 at 19:29)
He's Canadian, maybe 180km/h?
(Jul 10, 2012 at 19:59)
in Canada we use the metric system not the old school imperial system like you yanks. 180km/hr is doable for sure.
(Jul 10, 2012 at 20:02)
not all the time dude, think about the construction or landscaping industry... we use imperial for that
(Jul 11, 2012 at 0:51)
Is it just me or are they getting shorter every time?
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:20)
I look forward to two things on sunday, that is Tosh.0 and Life Behind Bars!
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:47)
(Jul 10, 2012 at 17:59)
idk what hes talking about, LBB is tuesdays.
