You know how Brandon Semenuk regularly breaks the Internet with videos of his absolutely insane riding? Well, with the help of cinematographer Rupert Walker, he just did it again. Version 3 of his Raw 100 series just dropped, and yes, it’s even better than before. Semenuk hasn’t been competing much this year, mostly focusing on producing mind-blowing shorts like this. Never one to conform, he’s even got a few new tricks up his sleeve, and check out the continuous shot at the one-minute mark.
This might be one of my favorite videos that I have seen in the past year. This all female bike crew from Whistler perfectly parodies Kendrick Lamar's "HUMBLE". The flow and concepts are flawless, from calling out the bros on the trail to the shitty pink outerwear companies insist on making. The video is almost a shot for shot recreation of Kendrick's original. I have to admit, I'm bumping this track all afternoon. Check out the original here.
The recent uptick in delicious Raw 100 edits is exactly what the mountain bike world needs. More style, more speed, better cinematography, and just a more authentic look at the sport itself. Canadian freeride Brendan Howey teamed up cine magician Rupert Walker to produce his own take in the format, tearing up a trail deep in the lush forests of Canada.
Squamish, BC is home to some of the best singletrack in the world, with trails like the infamous Half Nelson rivaling the quality of those just up the road at the Whistler Bike Park. Remi Gauvin stopped through to tear down the primordial woods of Half Nelson at warp speed, lathering on the style, with his front wheel barely touching the ground.
