VIDEO: Behind The Scenes of Brandon Semenuk’s Accomplice Segment

When it comes to creating truly standout pieces of mountain bike cinema, it’s not just about the talent in front of the camera – getting shots like those found in Accomplice took some pretty nifty movie magic. Thanks to our friends from Peacemaker Filmworks, a camera outfit based in Vancouver that takes over when “getting the shot” turns into an engineering problem, we were able to capture Brandon Semenuk and Paul Genovese like never before.

Peacemaker brought lots of high-tech toys, including FPV drones and a robotic KIRA camera arm into the field to capture the riders on BC’s Sunshine Coast. Take a peek into this unique corner of filmmaking, and learn about the challenges and rewards of making this unforgettable segment from Accomplice. Haven’t seen the segment yet? Watch it right here.

Another Tour de France, Another Road Gap

Another Tour de France, Another Road Gap

This year’s Tour de France certainly looked a little bit different, with less crowds on the sidelines, riders wearing masks when off the bike, and all manner of other COVID-19 protocols in place. One thing, thankfully, still remained the same: we had another mountain biker launch a massive road gap jump over the peloton. This year’s honors went to Dan Leclercq for sending a 60-footer over the racers – un très gros saut! RELATED: Video - Floating Iceberg Flips With Ice Climbers on

Watch The New Wheelie World Record: Nearly 20 Miles in 1 Hour

Riding 20 miles in one hour on your bike is already quite impressive, so now try doing it only on your back wheel. That’s exactly what Swiss ride Manuel Scheidegger did, wheeling 31 kilometers in under an hour, setting a new world record along the way. Scheidegger also held the record previously.  Scheidegger completed the record on a 400-meter running track, riding 77 laps on his rear wheel. In order for the record to count, he would have to start over if his front wheel touched the ground.
