Brandon Semenuk isn’t merely good at riding mountain bikes – for anyone who has dug a little deeper into the life of the Canadian superstar, you’ll know he’s also a damn good rally car driver. Semenuk just inked a new deal with Subaru Motorsports to rally race a fresh WRX STI alongside motorsports legend Travis Pastrana.

British Columbia native Brandon Semenuk has been putting his mark on rally in the U.S. and Canada since 2010. Competing first in a production WRX and then in a Subaru Canada-supported Crosstrek rally car, Semenuk has racked up five overall Canadian Rally Championship (CRC) event wins and a pair of North American Rally Cup (NARC) titles in the last three years. His achievements in U.S. events include an impressive 4th overall at Idaho Rally in 2018 – competing in a UTV against bigger, more powerful Open 4WD Class cars – and another 4th place finish in a privateer car at 2019’s Oregon Trail Rally with co-driver John Hall.
