Rock Out To This Heavy-Metal Edit From The Coast Gravity Park

Many moons ago, back when I worked in a bike shop, there was pretty much always one soundtrack playing in the background: metal.

Sure, we’re used to watching him throw down on his big bike in places like Virgin, but if his X Games Real MTB video proves anything, he’s still an absolute weapon when it comes to street riding.

Podcast: Brandon Semenuk On the Progression of His Career

Even though Brandon Semenuk constantly puts out one mind-bending bike edit after another, he hardly ever talks in any of them. He's a man of few words, which is fair considering he’d rather channel all his energy into landing bike tricks that are hard to comprehend. But when he does open up about his career, it’s worth listening to. Recently he sat down with pro BMX rider Dennis Enarson for an episode of the Unclicked podcast.
