Video: Semenuk and Rheeder Look Back at Rotorua's Crankworx

Jul 8, 2015
by Trek Bikes  

It just wasn t Semenuk s day. The Technician came up short on the third jump ending any chance of a win here in New Zealand.

bigquotesI think its amazing that Crankworx decided to do a triple crown for their slope style events. I'd expected this to happen sooner, Crankworx is the backbone of slope style, I've just been waiting for this to happen. - Brandon Semenuk

Brett Rheeder took his first win today. After battling a stomach flu he was the one who found the gold at this first Crankworx.

bigquotesThe Diamond Series is something I've been working towards winning for the past four years. Ive ended up with a fourth, third and a second, and there's only one more place for me to get. I mean thats definitely a goal that I've had, its a huge career goal because its so hard now espically with the level of riding thats going on at these contests - Brett Rheeder

For Rheeder this has been a long time coming. Do pull this off after being ill all day yesterday just goes to show how solid he is right now.

 Brett's Horsepower video and Brandon's Raw 100 video are some of the best videos that have ever been shot. Probably my two favorite slope riders out there!

On another note...Logan Peats bike looks like a session. A mini session. A ticket. Wait, what?

 I think santa cruz's custom slopestyle bike wasn't ready for logan peat in time so he just rode a santa cruz-branded session instead

 @prurient-possum He was riding his SC slope prototype the week before in Queenstown.
So he was either not satisfied with it or he snapped it.

 The down tube doesn't have the rounded part by the steertube like a ticket. It also looks a lot beefier than a ticket.

 Ontario riders who ride in BC and make the slope their playground giver like no other. Look out for my homies from T-Dot area....Logan....Brett...many many more! That said Semenuk is so fun to watch and it's tough choosing either over the other.....they are both off different hooks.

 I so hope for Semenuk to finish his run this Saturday in Les 2 Alpes and slay the course and competition! Smile

 It´s funny how Semenuk thinks that everyone haw bag full of tricks like him. I love how he puts his runs together, he has something unique for every course. In my eyes that makes him better then Rheeder.
