Showing off that the Crosstrek can tackle any dirt path or road on two wheels or four, the video shows Semenuk on both his mountain bike and the Crosstrek. He has competed in various regional rally events in B.C. as well as the Canadian Rally Championship and Rally America. Semenuk has even managed to take a second-place podium finish at Rally of the Tall Pines in November 2015, behind the wheel of a Subaru WRX STI.
While freeriding on a mountain bike, Semenuk has gathered up a long list of awards including a win at the Red Bull Rampage in 2008, the 2011 and 2012 Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour and a silver medal at the X Games in 2013.
“The Subaru Crosstrek is a perfect choice for active lifestyles and people like Brandon Semenuk,” said Joe Felstein, director of marketing for Subaru Canada. “Not only is it safe and fun to drive like Brandon’s rally car, it can handle a variety of road and weather conditions with ease and has the versatility to take along others as well as your sporting gear.”
