Brandon is the most relaxed rider I've ever seen.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 12:52)
No way. I have got so relaxed ridding home from the pub that I have fallen asleep on my bike.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 15:14)
Who doesn't get relaxed when wearing their pajamas?
(Oct 15, 2016 at 18:22)
: nah. you ever see an interview with him? he's definitely more relaxed
(Oct 15, 2016 at 14:46)
Whatever Trek pays him he's worth more
(Oct 15, 2016 at 13:26)
fork didnt even move on the landing of the flatspin
(Oct 15, 2016 at 18:36)
yeah its kinda incomprehensible how perfectly he hit that tranny on such a massive stepup.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 22:53)
yeah thats pretty much how my boxxer functions all the time. It's a rigid dual crown.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 8:23)
:@scott-townes: The rear shock made up for it, all the weight was in the back
(Oct 15, 2016 at 16:34)
rewinded that nose bonk like ten times, fuvking beautiful
(Oct 15, 2016 at 17:02)
That was so cool!
(Oct 15, 2016 at 12:37)
He totally should've crankflipped the jump before his step up
(Oct 15, 2016 at 22:51)
holy shit it goes off camera but I think he crankflipped at the finish line for the crowd
(Oct 16, 2016 at 10:52)
He did you can see it as he goes into the corral
(Oct 15, 2016 at 16:28)
THE SURGEON. Another day in the operating room.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 16:06)
only one that fully owned the course, was in a league of his own that day
(Oct 15, 2016 at 12:32)
That was amazing...
(Oct 15, 2016 at 20:49)
Way to step it up...as if you even needed to....you are on another level of dialed. Im not overly semenuk fanboyish, but that deserves some props! Shredder!
(Oct 16, 2016 at 9:43)
Semenuks run is the best example that 26' ain't dead,
(Oct 17, 2016 at 9:49)
Makes me wonder what Trek think about that? LOL
(Oct 15, 2016 at 16:40)
Neat and mellow. His training, natural talent and skills have that little extra that makes a big difference as whole. It's something I'm yet to see from others. The only thing that could beat that is an insane back-flip off the Oakley sender as in last year and even then, that alone might not be enough.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 7:18)
Semenuks head when he is riding the Rampage!
(Oct 16, 2016 at 9:45)
I need this chicken as a camera mount.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 16:04)
Brandon landing that flat spin three in slow motion is the most perfect ad for Rock Shox rear shocks. I can't believe how composed his bike is on that landing. It's seriously mind boggling.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 6:09)
No real mega drops which is what I associate the roots of Rampage with but sketchy lines and amazing flow!
(Oct 16, 2016 at 4:30)
No words can possibly express the skill level and relaxed execution that this guy embodies.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 17:15)
F You! youtube for putting an add right in the middle of the screen right when he jumps.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 18:50)
ya after watching the vids of riders now a few times over, incan see
why you made that observation.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 16:41)
Run 2 - tuck no hander on the jump into his step up, then 720 over the step up. rest of run the same. do want.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 13:03)
(Oct 15, 2016 at 12:29)
(Oct 15, 2016 at 19:57)
Just F*ck yes!!
(Oct 16, 2016 at 17:22)
You know it's a good run when even Brandon looks happy with it
(Oct 16, 2016 at 4:09)
See VanStenberg double drop variation was nuts...
(Oct 16, 2016 at 9:57)
Man, that dude can ride a bicycle.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 17:41)
Wow, that nose bonk!
(Oct 16, 2016 at 16:16)
probably the best biker on earth at the mo, however i think bizet deserved first place
(Oct 15, 2016 at 14:18)

Semenuk got robbed!
(Oct 16, 2016 at 6:20)
What is this f*ggot talking about a backflip off flat paying homage to Dave Mirra? When did Dave Mirra ever do a back flip off a flat drop? Not a slight against Dave in ANY way at all whatsoever, I'm just trying to point out the clueless-ness of this guy. He name drops Mirra so we think he's for the #culture, but he has no idea what he's talking about.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 6:41)
you sir, stand corrected.....
(Oct 16, 2016 at 7:00)
: Wow holy shit, i certainly do. I apologize, that's f*cking impressive. I guess i'm the one who needs to study. I still don't like that Pat character lol
(Oct 19, 2016 at 15:04)
: Not only did Mirra flip a flat drop, but onto a quarter pipe which is similar to the hip Semenuk landed on. Pretty bad ass!
(Oct 19, 2016 at 22:09)
: Yeah i really can't believe that footage. Such high consequence. And back when the real finesse hadn't reach BMX quite yet. It was all brute strength and baddassery. He just rode off the edge and pulled that bitch back and hope it came around in the right position. f*ck. That'll make your butt hole pucker up
(Oct 15, 2016 at 12:42)
he's to cool for second runs, prefers to carry his bike down. A single tear runs down Benders face
(Oct 15, 2016 at 13:43)
Get over it
(Oct 15, 2016 at 13:47)
Hey when you got you got it,why risk a second run with one like that in the bag.Way more calculated than Bender ever was.
(Oct 15, 2016 at 15:02)
his riding is great, his strategic decision (to not ride the second run and still take the win) also
(Oct 15, 2016 at 16:06)
: Yeah, seeing as Sam reynolds didn't even compete as he felt it was just going too far and too dangerous then it shows how risky this event is. Why would he bother taking a run down in high wind and risk getting a huge injury when he's already won?
(Oct 16, 2016 at 7:10)
he didn't have to trick it at least ride down like a mountain biker.
(Oct 16, 2016 at 8:47)
: You think you know what a mountain biker is and he doesn't? He's one of, if not the, best freeride/slopestyle riders on the planet. Part of being incredibly good is knowing when to play it safe. But I guess he's wrong and you are so much better than him as you clearly know everything about how to be a mountain biker. I look forward to seeing you on the podium next year
(Oct 16, 2016 at 11:20)
(Oct 17, 2016 at 1:43)
I don't care if a rider does not want to take a 2nd run. But if conditions are right, why not. It is probably the best time to go really big, challenge yourself and progress the sport. Thanks to the medical staff.
(Oct 19, 2016 at 15:02)
: I see what you're saying, but if you're talking about challenging yourself and progressing the sport, a victory lap probably isn't the time to do that. If someone topped Semenuk's score, then i'm sure he would have stepped a bit further out his comfort zone for a second run though
(Oct 16, 2016 at 5:49)
Very good run though!! But so disappointed on how they have under scored Andreu Lacondeguy, specially on his second run... Shame....
