unReal is available now in the real world on iTunesAmazonGoogle Play, and more and is currently on a worldwide film tour. Go watch it now!

To celebrate the release of unReal on iTunes, Teton Gravity Research and Anthill are releasing one of the most acclaimed segments from the film. Widely recognized as the best slopestyle mountain biker in the world, Brandon Semenuk has become the first mountain biker to film a full segment in a single continuous shot. 

Injured at the time, Semenuk only hit the full line once.

This uninterrupted shot was filmed by the most advanced gyro-stabilized camera system, the GSS C520, mounted to a truck on a custom road built next to a custom trail that took three weeks to build. 

This true cinematic achievement required perfect coordination between Semenuk, Anthill Films, and TGR to master the athleticism, planning, timing and logistics to make this one-of-a-kind segment possible. 

unReal is currently on a worldwide film tour. Click here for a list of film screenings.

Ending on the dot. Perfect.

Hot Take: Course builder Dan Atherton (the mad scientist of freeride) is giving Red Bull Rampage a run for its money when it comes to designing the straight-up scariest mountain bike competition on the planet. Red Bull Hardline is no secret, but watching the first POV previews of the Welsh course, like this one from Bernard Kerr are truly puckering. Somehow, the already impossibly gnarly course got even more terrifying this year, with insane tech sections, a few truly massive jumps, and World

For some, building mountain bike trails is an escape. For others, it’s a way to express artistic creativity in an unlikely medium. Most mountain bikers can understand that shaping dirt, wood, rocks, and everything in between to create a three-dimensional space for flow is something that is easy to appreciate: when a trail is built right, it just feels Shimano and Mark Matthew’s latest short celebrates the art of trailbuilding as it’s known in Cumberland, BC. The trail in question isn’t some
