 I feel for the guy. He just can't seem to control his bike. His handlebars are always spinning away from him, yet he somehow gets them back in control just in time. But then he's spinning out of control and is lucky he lands in the right direction...except that one time where he didn't. We all should chip in and pay for a riding coach for him. Maybe then he'll keep his bike under control a little better.

 Everyone on MTBR says you have more control with clips - perhaps that's Semenuk's problem? We'll just all chip in for a set of SPDS.
  • + 24
 He needs five ten shoes for sure. His feet keep slipping off!
  • + 28
 I think he also needs some new tires, he always seems to be losing grip and sliding all over the place.
  • + 30
 he needs a 29er so hes not bouncing around all over the trail
  • + 2
 I've only got one other complaint then his lack of bike control. I think they made the video to short. We needed to see if he turns it around.
  • + 6
 yeah, too much air pressure in his tires and pretty sure that headset needs to be tightened

 Is he for hire? Laguna needs some trilaside overgrowth ripd to shreds...oh wait, why would he ever leave this wonderland?

 I don't give a shit if you don't wanna compete anymore Brandon, I don't even give a shit if you show up and can't win. You're literally the best rider in my eyes. I get chills every time I see your backyard, crazy how Life behind bars comes and goes but such a pleasure to see you still tearing it up back there.
  • + 18
 We need moar Life Behind Bars.
  • + 27
 We've said this too...just watching B ride his bike, do unimaginable things on a bike-but do them with impeccable style, grace and a Semenuk trademark to it-nothing like it really...content production and trick/style/video innovation is often times more rad than competitions.

But as Palmer once said "Winning is bitchin".

Well done yet again Brandon, glad we are a part of your career.

 @troyleedesigns: You guys are the real MVP for the continued support and sponsorship of that kid.

 What the hell. I pretty much lose my mind whenever I even think of that dude's name these days. Just mind blowing, awe-inspiring, absolutely unbelievable and downright rad stuff to watch. Thanks Revel Co.
  • + 47
 Well, I don't know, once you've seen one "barspin scrub back flip whipped wheel bump front flip tree bounce drifting tail whip superman" you've seen them all......
  • + 14
 That was pretty mind-blowing. He did more bar spins than a Ryan Nyquist slope run.
  • + 2
 Agreed... what else is there? If anyone will figure that out Brandon will!
  • + 62
 Pretending to crash at :30, so we think he's human......not fooling anyone!
  • + 12
 @JC9won4 - that was the camera man. They switched jobs for that .2 seconds.
  • + 43
 Uuuuuummmm..... yeah. I need to see that again to even comprehend what I just done seen. There is nobody that rides like Brandon. He's kinda drawn a parallel with the Rat in how he's taken some downtime from constantly competing and just focusing on videos. But that's where it stops. Brandon is way more intense than Bryceland and is literally taking it to the bleeding edge of what a human can do on a Mtb. And he does it with an artfulness and creativity that is stunning to behold. The quintessence of perfectionism he is.

 Bryceland is overrated. Weird style.

 @wallhound: But you never see him front flip in recent competitions, he's all about as many combo's as possible. It'd be nice to see it from him in competition.

 RIP 26inch session park .... Semenuk you are a animal

 Is his new session 650?

 @Shimanosaint0097: most of the top slope an freeriders on custom 26 bikes despite thier sponsors not making/marketing them to the public

 pretty sure its still a 26

 Paint job reminds me of my Specialized BigHit circa 2007. What a bike!
  • + 17
 @scottsecco you normally make a comment on a semenuk video once a year claiming VOY. So which one is it this year? Because this super team is pumping out videos at an other worldly rate!
  • + 14
 @adrennan You'll have to wait and see...
  • + 9
 What's the point of the bike if you're just going to float down the trail anyway? Smile
  • + 7
 Best semenuk edit in a while imo. Nothin beats rock n roll and loam freeride slope shredding.
  • + 8
 wait, he's got a free coaster?
  • + 4
 He certainly ain't no Mike Aitken that's for sure!
  • + 4
 yup, he tried busting out a freecoaster run at joyride last year, got a cool fakie off the drop (albeit after he fell off the wood run in on his first run) but didnt get the rest of the run in.
  • + 5
 I hate the way they use heavy CGI in every BS video, everyone knows that kind of style and steeze is impossible Smile



Freekin awesome.
  • + 7
 Favourite rider.
  • + 4
 Would love to see the guy take part in a quick, fairly smooth wc race like Leogang...he's seriously rapid.
  • + 2
 has he raced DH? can't remember .... he should as anyone with his control and ability on 2-wheels would dominate. sign him up for the Canadian Open DH in a couple of weeks in whistler ...
  • + 2
 I was thinking the same, I want to see him race every crankworx event, just to see what he can and can't do!
  • + 1
 'Buckwild' riding, I like that one. Probably means Radical to us old timers, awesome as usual. Never seems the happiest chap when being interviewed, but I guess his close friends see a different guy? Any bike, any time, anywhere. He's got it!!

 I can't wait for Emil's C3 video I hope we see some Semenuk x Emil action soon too
  • + 0
 Emil won't have his C3 video, according to TREK website
  • + 1
 According to Trek website each of the C3 athletes will have one. There is just not Emils picture with coming soon sign. So maybe later?
  • + 3
 I'd watch this rather than watch a slopestyle contest where everyone is throwing technical tricks with no style.
  • + 4
 When the Trek Session rips off the Supreme logo...
  • + 2
 can't wait to see this guy shred Joyride at Whistler this year. he can motowhip his whole run and it will look better than most everybody else...
  • + 2
 Love all Semenuk / RevelCo content. Thank you guys so much for how much you provide for us.

Also, love the couple hardtail shots in there.
  • + 3
 Smooth. Fast. Intense. I'm pretty sure Brandon would be a top level WC racer if he decided to go that way...
  • + 3
 Holy shit I'm bored of watching this guy ride. Oh, wait, jaw still hits the floor every time.
  • + 3
 So when are those fancy Velcro DH tires going to be available for the rest of us? I foresee PB product of the year!
  • + 2
 Semenuk - just casually putting out yet another mind blowing bike web edit so he can get back to rally racing and not have people ask where he is at every slopestyle comp.
  • + 3
 360 whip to double barspin....mindblown, Brandon is a wizard !
  • + 2
 That house could use a new roof, but he probably already knew/saw that with how high he jumps his bike.
  • + 1
 What the hell is that move called where he touches his foot to the wood before launch, early on in the 1st slopestyle segment? That was crazy!
  • + 1
 Its a fastplant 3
  • + 3
 Anyone know if that's still the Session park?
  • + 4
 That's the new frame, but that's not to say Trek haven't made something for him specially, which they do.
  • + 1
 @Justmatthew: not too familiar with the sessions how can you tell its the new frame?
  • + 2
 @directorsport Well he's done a fake half cab whip drop? that's even harder than landing backwards...

 this guy is sssooo sick!!

 Nice to see them recreate the Tail Whip shot off the cannon log--little tip of the hat to Life Behind Bars with some added spice! New yard set up looks dope.

 The lack of arty farty irrelevant filler is most excellent

 It must be terrible being that good

 He must be spending a ton of time around Nyquist. Throwin' the bars non-stop! So good. Always.

 Awesome video! Brandon makes everything look so easy! I wish the video was longer!!!!

 Nothing short of amazing. This guy sets the bar for style. My fave rider in freestyle mtb for sure.

 THE BEST overall bicycle rider of ALL TIME.

 That forest section . . . . I wish he would race a DH world cup, think it would be a pleasure to watch him win in style :-)

 The matte forest green frame, orange highlighted logo and the boxxer look so sick together. Droolworthy colorway right there

 All the while pulling that off in skinny jeans...
