Eventually, he reached the point where no current ramp set-up was high enough or big enough to push himself on.
Enter Uncontainable, a ramp set-up custom-built out of enormous shipping containers.
Watch the video below:
My goal on this project was to ride stuff that would really scare me. To push my personal limits on a bike and to ride stuff I would never get the opportunity to ride unless it was built.

Everyone feels fear. It's survival instinct built into the DNA of all human beings – the unpleasant emotion that tells us when to walk away, even to run away.
But fear, when harnessed correctly, can also allow us to do the unimaginable.
At a secret location near his hometown of Truro, Nova Scotia, Drew worked tirelessly with a team of renowned ramp builders, led by Nate Wessel, to put together some of the biggest BMX obstacles ever ridden.
Huge shipping containers were used because they could be stacked and rearranged in endless configurations.
Each individual shipping container stands at roughly 2.63m – when stacked four-high, that’s 10.52m above ground – which is roughly the same size as a four-storey building.
Now, imagine backflipping your bike off a four-storey building, and you've begun to get an idea of the goal behind Drew Bezanson's #Uncontainable.
