Brandon is internationally recognized and acclaimed as one of the best freeride mountain bikers in the world, and has exhibited his talents through film, competition, and on various media outlets. Although he is known to millions of fans as a groundbreaking talent on a bike, Brandon has more recently become a rising star in North American rally.
A native of British Columbia, Semenuk has been putting his mark on rally in the U.S. and Canada since 2010. Rapidly progressing from a WRX to a WRX STI and then to a Subaru Canada-supported Crosstrek rally car, Semenuk has secured five Canadian Rally Championship (CRC) event wins and a pair of North American Rally Cup (NARC) titles in the last three years alone. He has also competed in occasional U.S. events when his schedule permits; his 2019 campaign included two CRC event wins and a fourth-place finish at the Oregon Trail Rally, his sole American event of the year.
Brandon is now excited to join the factory Subaru Motorsports USA team in 2020, where he will be driving a Vermont SportsCar-prepared 'VT20r' 2020 Subaru WRX STI rally car alongside Travis Pastrana.
Like his teammate, Semenuk’s developing rally career hasn’t meant slowing down on two wheels. Brandon remains a top-level freeride MTB athlete when not in the rally car and secured his third career Red Bull Rampage victory in 2019. His lifetime accolades also include three FBM World Tour overall championships and five total Red Bull Joyride wins, making him one of the most decorated freeride MTB athletes in history.
Outside of rally and MTB, Brandon enjoys photography and features much of his work on his social media pages. He also stars in the multi-million-view Raw100 video series produced by Red Bull and his production house Revel Co., combining his interests to break new ground in both MTB stunts and videography.
