 Anyone else reminded of the jaw drop when looking at this? Or is it just me?

 That is seriously fucking hardcore!

 it is insane, but the landing is not natural, alot work on it.

 I wouldn't ever compare semenuk to bender. Semenuk is way more in control.

 semenuk got style and crazy skills, bender don't

 I wanna see the shot from the photographer to the right of the frame.

 suicide??!! what a boss.

 Just where the sandbags are exactly ! But may be there is an ocean between...

 This shot is very good at reminding me how f'ing sick Rampage is. It's a little easy to forget just how gnarly just getting down this mountain face is. Let alone any tricks whatsoever. Just plain wicked. No wood required Wink

 my mum saw this and said that is silly its obviously photoshopped. then i showed her all of the other ones and where the landing is she is confused "thats impossible". nope its seminuk. . . brandon seminuk.

 Actually, it's Brandon Semenuk*.

 Another angle of brandon's HUGE gap!! also the bearclaw on the air!!! www.pinkbike.com/photo/8760267

 I saw him hit it. It was so insane I was speechless.

 all Bender does is ride bikes off cliffs and crash
  • + 7
 Actually if you've ever ridden with Bender, he is an extremely talented rider and absolutely shreds trails. Dude definitely is a professional rider, just that he's known for destroying himself on absurd drops.
  • + 7
 That and we can't disguard the fact that if Bender wasn't involved in the sport, it would be nothing it is like today. He changed what people thought was possible, sketchy or now we all owe him one.
  • + 9
 ^^^Agreed; Semenuk (and all of us) owe Bender.

greatness + humility...who does that?

 He is a decent rider but not near pro stature
  • + 1
 Back then there was really no such thing as a pro rider. Unless you raced. These early freeride guys were not making a living off hucking.
  • + 2
 even now, he probably would be a pro freerider, he went fucking huge, he was just really sketchy.
  • + 2
 is he jumping into water?

 I would at least shit myself twice in the air. POD.

 Would even have some time to wipe our arse to.

 @psyickphuk what is the point of saying that after it has become POD? We already know its worthy.

 The best line of Rampage by far. This was a life and death maneuver... as Brandon said, there's no way to practice the run in. His entire line on the upper course leading up to this was so insanely sketch and he rode it like a f'ing maniac. I could care less about the DJ's on the bottom of the course, this move was the "Evolution" of Rampage.
  • + 3
 couldn't agree more. this is what rampage is about. for me i look for control, fear factor and use of natural features. mabye they should do a txt vote like the x factor and let the fans decide

 was the most insane thing to ever watch someone do on a bike.

 Gonna have this as my wallpaper on my laptop for a few months to come. Would anyone know how to explain the feeling a rider gets when doing this sort of a step down..?? Excellent picture taken by the way..

 Rampage = sickest riding ever!!!!!!
[Reply]
  • + 4
 that may be as sick as Zinks 3. If he didnt wash then he wouldve taken 1st for sure.
[Reply]

 This gets crazier when you realize that he lands in a giant berm that fires him out of a huge step up next to a cliff. www.pinkbike.com/photo/8765013

 Definition of Red Bull Rampage right here.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 That looks VERY HUGE indeed. Respect to Brandon. But I remember back in the day (03 -04 maybe) when Cedric made the first canyon jump in Rampage. It was simply MINDBLOWING!!
[Reply]
  • + 2
 with that amount of air time, im pretty sure he has enough time to make a prayer hoping he lands it
[Reply]
  • + 4
 let's go brandon !!!
[Reply]
  • + 1
 Yup that's enough proof for me. Red Bull does give you wings. I'm switching from Monster to Red Bull
