Video | Midpoint – Brandon Semenuk

by 3

Watching a Brandon Semenuk video is like sinking into a deep bath after a long ride, or sipping a G&T at sundown. Invariably smooth with a choice soundtrack, they’re a quiet sidestep from the usual mountain bike videos.

So lazy we’re having a lie down in the meadow.

This latest release is no different. There’s plenty of slo-mo, but it’s spliced with lazy trick after lazy trick. Seemingly effortless extensions at impossible angles, it lulls us into thinking it’s all easy. No braap, no roost, no sponsor close ups. Just skill, grace, form, shapes.

With beautifully sculpted jumps, contrasting light and thoughtful camera work, there’s as much art in this video as there is many a degree show. We don’t want to see the outtakes, just this three minute display of flow, flight and – for us mortals – fantasy.

Sit back and soak.

The loud thumbnail doesn’t do the video justice.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    This guy absolutely nails it literally every time. Another strong and well thought out video superbly produced.

    Since he stepped out of the competition limelight somewhat, every video he releases get better and better. Some boy.

    Too many slow motion shots !

    Makes it look totally unreal, what with the sleepy music too.

    What about some ACTUAL real time then play it again in slow motion…
    Or something like that…
