Brandon Semenuk – Red Bull Raw 100

Man, there are so many good things going on here! First, the resurrection of the old X Games downhill track at Woodward West. Seeing that thing not only dialed back into ridable condition, but with the addition of a few improvements makes me long for that era of racing to come back. Imagine watching eight dudes battle down that thing! That’s something that I would actually tune in to watch. Hell, I’d probably even try to be there for the event! Second, Red Bull’s Raw 100 is a rad conceptual series that puts both the rider and filmmaker in the spotlight. 100 seconds in length, no slow motion, and no music. All I can say is that Brandon Semenuk and Rupert Walker definitely raised the bar for the series on this one!
