Brandon Semenuk

Brandon Semenuk is a professional mountain biker. He competes in big mountain bike competitions like Red Bull Rampage and Crankworks and the FMB (Freeride Mountain Bike) world mountain bike tour. Brandon is 26 years of age and six feet and one inch tall. He is very good at rally car racing and he has been sponsored for mountain biking since he was 7 years old. He is a pro at freeride, down hill and slopestyle but he started as a cross country rider when he was young.

Thinking

Brandon uses the thinking trait to think about the speed he needs to hit jumps and how far he will go. If he goes too far he will over shoot the landing of the jump but if he doesn’t go far enough he will case (hit the back of the landing) the jump. Choosing the right line when mountain biking is very important because speed and endurance is on the line when racing.

Industriousness

Brandon is very industrious in mountain biking. He makes money and has a lot of fun mountain biking. He has a successful YouTube channel and has made a lot of great films about mountain biking and having fun doing cool things like street BMX riding. Brandon has a movie called Rad Company. It’s about him and his friends mountain biking and building jumps to ride.

Risk taking

Brandon Semenuk takes lots of risks when he is mountain biking like some of the Raw 100 second clips that are very professional looking descending down a crazy, slippery, dirty slope and big mountains. It must be scary going down huge drops and hitting huge jumps like Brandon does when he competes and free rides with his friends. Brandon took a big risk when he was 16 at Red Bull Rampage 2008 and he won. It was such a risk because of his young age.

I hope Brandon continues mountain biking, competing in big mountain competitions and be one of the worlds best mountain bikers.
