We enjoy mountain biking. It is a fun sport. But it is videos like this that constantly remind us that there are many people that do things that we cannot. This guy is one of them. One of the world’s premier slopestyle riders, Brandon Semenuk, took on this course in one shot and one try.
Ski movies are awesome. But mountain biking movies are gruesome – the consequences heavier. So I imagine that you might cringe knowing that Semenuk was injured when filming this, clearly held back a little, but still managed to crush it in one try despite the injury, despite the pressure, and despite how crazy this course is.
Here is what Teton Gravity Research had to say about the segment:
“To celebrate the release of unReal on iTunes (http://radi.al/unReal), Teton Gravity Research (TGR) and Anthill release 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. 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 with regard to athleticism, planning, timing and logistics. Injured at the time, Semenuk only hit the full line once. “
