 In feestyle he undoubtely is, but in race mode Graves takes it
  • + 41
 There is always this point in every Semenuk edit, where I'm like:"Another typical top notch Semenuk edit." And then he does something like the opposite/inward-whip-thingy in Raw 100 or 2:04 in this one, and I'm just like:"f*ck"

Most stylish rider ever on any kind of bike. Hands down.
  • + 17
 He is one of the most creative as well, I don't think ive ever seen somebody do a foot jam off of a berm like that. He really likes to go against the grain from the normal bike edits.
  • + 11
 I'd love to see him race, just to see how he'd do. He is so smooth on the bike that one can't help think that'd transfer over well to getting down the mountain quickly.
  • + 2
 I was watching the video and thinking, when Brandon will be retiring, they will have a lot of good things to say about him, true pioneer. Lol
  • + 5
 He makes everything look easy....no wonder judges gave him low scores because they cant believe or better yet....accept it's possible.
  • + 17
 That was a foot plant. NOBODY would foot jam out of a berm. It'd be suicide.
  • + 11
 Yeah im not up on the terminology since I cant do pretty much anything the pros do, i knew it was something with a foot haha

 @Kieran-Young Foot jam to frontflip off a boner log would be sick though

 sick i have been waiting for a Brandon semenuk vid for a long time and i was not disappointed
  • + 8
 "Best all around rider in the world" .... Is there even a close 2nd? Semenuk is on another level. Crushes everything from bmx to DH.
  • + 2
 It is my belief that semen UK doesn't buy a single thing anymore. Underwear? No. Socks? No. Pants? Shirts? Hekmets, shoes, bikes, gloves, parts, noooope. He just needs a car sponsor and to be sponsored by BP or something and he'll have it made.
  • + 2
 If so, it should be from Subaru.
  • + 6
 I'm assuming that semen UK was a typo. But if it isn't that's an interesting insult

 @StanMarsh check out Nicholi Rogatkin, he's in my oppinion an upcomming 2nd Brandon with his awsome BMX, slope and big bike skills (he took part in the FMB world tour Diamond series and Rampage)

 I'll believe that when he races a WC DH like some other riders who I would consider as the best all around rippers on a mtb. His style is nutty. Anyone else feel that edit went by way too quick? This is sick knowing its a series of edits.

 @Gilmarques - I hope he does get old, and I hope he takes his time doing it. The alternative sucks.

 Bernardo Cruz has the better whip.

 not necessarily better whips than his - just different. Every individual whip is different and special, just like snowflakes.... or buttholes.

 I think whips are like music to be honest, we just need someone to create whip genres and then have this discussion without disrespecting anyone.

 could easily be the crankworx whip-off chap!!!!!!!!!!

 I think this might be the first video in which I've ever seen Brandon Semenuk's bare calves.

 there's some sneaky calf action in revel

 Someone get Bryceland and Semenuk together in a video! So much talent!

 I agree. that would be amazing !

 that would be rad! I dont think they share a sponsor though :/ not that that matters but it can be restricting

 I'd love to see some behind the scenes of them interacting hahahaha

 How did this man not win Rampage?

 Been waiting 17 years to see someone caveman into that transition. Worth the wait.

 i would love to see new video of Brandon every week..he shouldn´t push it hard, just chillin around on a bike-everyday riding you know and that would be enough stylish and mind-blowing

 His XO promo vid was pretty good. A lot more flowy riding to start then ends off with some jumps.

 I was really hoping to see him rip gear jammer apart

 Riding gear jammer wouldn't be the same. I would be forever going too slow in my mind. BS rips!
  • + 11
 Gotta admit I was a little disappointed that the urban seggy was so short. Semenuk pulling old school urban freeride would be a sweet edit in itself.

 I'm just putting it out there. I think Semenuk is actually a bike ninja.

2. Forest scene: KanYe West - On Sight (small part of the track, between 1:17-1:30)
3. Session scene: ??? Maybe: Maxxis Minion DHR - Shredded Dirt (justkidding)
4. TicketS scene: The Roots - Rising Down (Feat. Mos Def)
