But Fabio Wibmer would. Check out this video that he submitted for the  “GoPro of the world” contest. It is pretty insane. I am sure he checked the railing before riding but can you imagine what a little bit of ice on the rail or slipping of a pedal would have […]

Outside of the dualing timelines that involves him in some kind of chase scene, you get to see some of the true creativity and smoothness that defines the riding style of Semenuk. The amount of combinations and 180 direction swaps this guy does are nothing short […]
