Mountain Biking

Brandon Semenuk’s Raw 100 Is One Of The Greatest Pieces of Freestyle Mountain Biking We’ve Ever Seen

It was just under 1 year ago to the day (July 15th 2015, to be precise) that we hailed Brandon Semenuk’s  unReal movie as the “The greatest in mountain biking history.” Praise indeed.

So, you can imagine our giddy excitement when a new edit from the Canadian freestyle wizard landed in our in-box. Raw 100 is precisely 100 seconds of mountain biking magic.

For the video, Semenuk and his filmer headed to California where they discovered what looks to be a near perfect freestyle set up. In fact, the track is a long-abandoned BMX freestyle track that was originally used back in the early 2000s by the X Games.

The film was made for the Raw 100 series, which is designed to highlight the uncompromised, in your face talent of the riders involved. As such, there’s no music and no slow motion permitted in any of the Raw 100 videos, and as far as we’re concerned, they’re all the better for it.

The result is an aggressive, smash-mouth 100 seconds of one of the best in the world seemingly at the peak of his powers. It’s dangerous, exhilarating, and brilliant, and that’s just from watching it on a computer screen.

So enough. Brace yourselves. And tell your boss you’re going to be a while, because you’ll want to watch this again, and again, and again.
