A true trailblazer in every sense of the word, Freeride Mountain Biker Brandon Semenuk prefers the path less traveled. More accurately, the non-existent path, and often the path with most resistance. Growing up racing bikes the Whistler-based pro athlete quickly mastered the usual courses. With a true 'If it doesn’t exist, build it' mentality, he ventured off the beaten path in search of a more creative space to ride. Deep in the woods, beyond the rules and regulations of conventional racing, Semenuk constructs his own courses to ride freely in an environment that's allowed him to become the 3-time FMB World Tour Gold Medalist that he is today.
In collaboration with friend and filmmaker Rupert Walker, Semenuk finds artistic expression on the long and winding dirt road to success. With their symbiotic work flow the two shine light on the creativity behind both freeride mountain biking and unconventional recreationalist who prefer to go their own way.
