REVEL IN THE CHAOS
A NEW FILM BY
BRANDON SEMENUK & RUPERT WALKER


bigquotesWe stumbled upon this feature while we were filming for Revel In The Chaos. It was the very last piece of the puzzle for our Utah night segment. We finished building it at midnight on the last night we had to shoot. The wind was picking up late every night, so I only got to do a few run ups before it was a 'now or never' situation to hit the feature. This was my very first attempt. The over shoot was close to 70 feet from the take off.

 And her I am casing 5 ft jumps

 I would have panicked let go of the bike and spent 6-8 weeks thinking about my poor decisions
  • 134 3
 wait, the plan was to land on the rock ?
  • 21 2
 Sorry I neg propped you by mistake. But yes. It was supposed to be a rock landing. A Rock'n'roll landing! Big Grin

 Even 15 ft doubles don't compare to riding that out... would have so landed in hospital... not that I ever would try such a thing...

 pretty cool how he adjusted the bike last minute to avoid touching the rock with the back end

 @transition-racer Yes that would have been absolutely disaster!... Such a champions luck/skills...

 The wheels are probably toast, but I can't believe that he was able to ride that out. I guess that is why he is a god in MTB.

 yup he moved the bike several times when on air, now that's what I call bike control. and yes here I am scared of a little double.

 Shuwukong meant he's a new species I think. Not a fellow a homo sapiens, but something entirely different. The next descendant of my old friends australopithacus afarensis and sahelanthropus tchaedensis.

 @loamydog Man you're a hero... btw zink really lives in the next house?

 I guess the build crew at Rampage is gonna have a loooot of beer&taco time with Semenuk not needing landings any more.

 If that was me, I'd be like Mr. Potato head picking up all my pieces.

 when in doubt, ride er out

 Thinking fast for sure...and the right decision. Woulda been ugly if he cased the end of the slab!
  • 10 1
 That is what you call a proper "Gas to Flat"!
  • 37 2
 Wow, he must be pretty fit to hang on to that. I would have hit my head on the bars, slipped the pedals, and broken my wrists and ankles haha.

 I have a feeling that people will be coming to get blessed by this man, cause he is like Jesus on two wheels.
  • 9 5
 can see him dogfighting with Gwin over "Jesus of MTB" title

 Maybe Semenuk is this "god" guy Gwin talks about...

 this is deep!

 Sure, Gwin was blessed this season. After watching that I'm thinking Semenuk has spent a bit of time down at the Crossroads making a deal

 Clearly it was a Holy Huck [situation].

 @Konakonakona-Chameleon best pinkbike comment in my opinion

 I will second that, still smiling as I write this. Thankyou Konakonakona-Chameleon, I just wish I wrote it.

 Aww c'mon man, this guy is using my line again!
  • 13 0
 You can tell he's riding in thinking 'no matter what don't come up short!' Big Grin

That said slightest rear wheel case on that rock and he would have been absolutely destroyed.

Monster of a line

 The ultimate Stoppie Sunday for Bernard Kerr right there.

 Was that rock feature in NWD 10? It looks weirdly familiar

 I read that quote under the video and just imagine the next thing out of his mouth being, "eh, no biggie."

Also, I'm sure somewhere in the world, Josh Bender just shrugged and said "Amateur"

 talk about the bike being an extension of himself... that statement really rings true here. I talked to Brandon about this part of the segment - he was very humble. "I got lucky". PSH....

 Like Clark Griswold. "Dad you must of jumped this thing 50 yards! Thats nothing to be proud of son...... 50 yards......"

 How did he manage to pull the bike up that far without the rear tyre ripping him a new ass?

 Just watched the movie last night! Definitely worth the $4.99, it was pretty awesome.

 DO THEY SHOW HIS BIKE!? you can hear that thing crunch

 I hate these itunes, amazon or vimeo on demand videos. f*ck that. I want a "old school" disc! Even VHS is better than this slave system!!!
  • 6 0
 I get what you mean, but from Vimeo on Demand you can download it, and burn it to disc. Also, this way there's more money to the makers.
  • 2 0
 Did you f.cking noticed he did it by night ??!
Think about what you see as a rider with that kind of speed, blind landing and artificial lights in your eyes ?!
Brandon, hats off !
Oh and please Mr Semenuk, get in a hurry we have only 10 minutes left to shoot that shit Wink
U-N-H-U-M-A-N !
Control !
Impressive.

 Where he was supposed to land, on this huge rock?

 go get the movie on itunes.... worth every penny.... u get to see him doing this jump in every brandon possible way

 It would be a stretch, and i say this while armchair qb'ing laid up with a sprained ankle from coming casing on a blind 60'er but i believe that the absolute sickest way to have handled that would've been to extend and manual across the rock. Higher conciquece and likelyhood of fucking up, sure but doable, i'd like to think so. Awesome feature and great conposure seeing it through.

 That segment in the movie was insane but seeing this kicks it up to level 10 gnarly, this kid always amazes me.

 The first gen Session would have snapped in three places. What puzzles Me is the fact that the BoXXer didn't soot an oil streak into his face. Dude's indestructible... /;;/

 Fecking awesome to ride it out in style but I dare say his shocks are a little stiffer than the average rider to get away with that!

 freaking last thing I would want to do is come up short on that but then again I would never have the ballz to try that in the first place lol

 Even if he had landed where he wanted to this would have been godly.

 What if the front wheel only barely made it over the rock and and he clipped the back wheel? Would have been interesting. Sort of a bmx on steroids move.
  • 30 0
 You can tell he realized that was a possibility. Watch it again: near the end of the jump, when he knows he's going to overshoot, he commits to clearing it, going back into a tuck and pulling the bike up in order to let the back tire clear. Cool, calm, and collected.
  • 3 0
 Yeah, proofs that he is more in the air then on the ground with his bikes. Pure control.
  • 15 3
 hopefully he didn't ride a Demo, he would have crashed ... ^^
  • 8 2
 why do you think Bearclaw and Soderstrom not doing well and Nicholi is on hardtail. Must be the demo axle path.
