Canada’s slopestyle and freeride icon focused much of the last several years on big solo video projects. But occasionally the multi-time Red Bull Rampage rider teams up with another rider. When he does, the results are fantastic. This is the case with Parallel II, Semenuk’s latest project featuring Kade Edwards.

Red Bull is behind the project, as usual, and has things to say about it:

Brandon Semenuk is constantly pushing the boundaries of what can be done on a mountain bike by combining top talent filmmaking and progressive riding. After joining forces with long-time friend and fellow Trek teammate, Ryan “R-DOG” Howard, in 2019, Brandon released the first edition of Parallel, a viral action-edit that displayed riding in sequence like never seen before. Two riders, two parallel courses, with intersecting riding and action.

Now, Semenuk has teamed up with World Cup downhill racer, Kade Edwards, for a second take. The powerhouse duo set out to push the series, as well as their capabilities to align timing and riding, in this stunning visual project. Filmed on a custom course in Kamloops, British Columbia, the riders leave little room for error while riding in close quarters. The video edit offers fast cuts, consistent action, and top-notch riding for an instant classic.

“Stunning visuals” and “instant classic” – Red Bull’s making big promises. Does Parallel II deliver? Watch and find out.

What’s Red Bull say?
