Watch an MTBer Debate Two Wheels vs. Four Wheels

Red Bull and Polaris athlete Brandon Semenuk breaks down his two disciplines.

Brandon Semenuk breaks down the similarities and differences between mountain bikes and side-by-sides.Polaris

Brandon Semenuk has spent his life in pursuit of the biggest sends he can dream up. Known first as a Trek Factory mountain bike freerider, he is also a motorsports junkie and a pro athlete for Polaris. He was in Virgin, Utah, earlier this fall for Red Bull Rampage, a massive freeride mountain bike event.

While he was there, he was cruising around in a custom 2023 Polaris General XP 1000. He took some time out of his trail building to give a quick rundown on the similarities and differences of extracting the maximum from his two- and four-wheeled disciplines.

We don’t want to spoil it, but Semenuk discusses the precision required in each vehicle, the sense of exposure in each machine, which is a bigger mental challenge, whether there is any crossover between the two disciplines, and his favorite two- and four-wheelers ever.

Check out the YouTube video to hear Semenuk’s take.
