  • + 10
 Seriously pinkbike get pictures together and do a whips for your Wednesday!
  • + 8
 that kid hit that tree haaaaaaaaard!
  • + 5
 Its gotta be the double overshoot..the noise is pretty good
  • + 7
 That was awesome! I love it but can we please not have it on friday?!! I'm not sure if that's the best way of getting amped for a weekend riding!! Wyat FTW.
  • + 1

 LOL i never crash
[Reply]
  • + 49
 Wyatt hits a tree... Fuckin Hell
  • + 7
 His full face went flying!
  • + 11
 i think that kid dies
  • + 5
 you can see his right wrist/arm is broken
  • + 5
 That's what happens when you don't fasten your helmet up gents!
  • + 3
 oh sh*t icculus you're right that is nasty now that i re-watch it
  • + 4
 im still laughing at the rafting one too so funny! "oh my god yo" ha ha
  • + 3
 @Dan1210 but you know you'd react the same way if your bike was floating down a river.
  • + 3
 @Westpennhunter....Totally. $3000 getting trashed by the river. I would freak out.
  • + 2
 Of course man! Id be gutted, im laughing at the vid but we all know we'd be crying if it was our bike, such an odd situation to be in almost seems staged.
  • + 2
 worst one-tim stack
  • + 3
 not going fast enough was the problem, if hed been going faster he would have gone straight through the tree :L
  • + 1
 I dont think his wrist is broken, muscles just squeezing after epic K.O.
  • + 1
 damn it, just had a helluva crash a couple days ago (flipped numerous times) and i would have a video of it but the sd card in my go pro got knocked out grrrr!
  • + 0
 I watched the Wyatt one, repeatedly, and even put some tape on my screen to verify that the tree actually does move. If you don't believe me, try it, yourself.
  • + 1
 Cause the camera isnt moving at all....cars move trees not 90lbs kids...
  • + 2
 I had to watch the wyatt hitting the tree vid again to see the broken arm. That is sick. And not in a good way.
  • + 1
 why everyone thinking he broke his arm...no one ever seen someone get knocked out and go all handicap arms?
  • + 2
 Yea but hes not knocked out...hes moving and you can see his wrist/arm bent backwards at a pretty drastic angle, then he tries to put weight on it and collapses.
  • + 1
 You can move when unconscious you know, you move in your sleep all the time.
  • + 1
 ya i guess these guys dont watch any type of boxing, mma, etc.
  • + 1
 @OTehNoes you watch me when i sleep?...creepy
[Reply]
  • + 28
 Man i was laughing so hard at the rafting bike! How did some of those crashes even happen though!?
  • + 9
 Yeah me too Razz The best moment was when he realized that he is okay but his bike is dropping in the river Big Grin
  • + 2
 I was laughing for ages until my tummy hurt Smile . I wonder if he ever got it back....
  • + 11
 "My buddy loses control and his bike pays the price. Yes, the bike survived."
  • + 1
 Oh good ^^ was wondering if he got his bike back, he was really moving down river after it. Smile
  • + 4
 It looked like he was running faster to catch his bike than he was biking before the crash.
  • + 1
 still laughing whilst writing!!!!!! "oh my god no, oh my god no, my bikes in the river" poor bloke survives the crash but realises the collataral dammage of his bike hurts even harder!
[Reply]
  • + 18

[Reply]
  • + 5
 this is hilarious! PB should do this every friday. the last photo rocks btw, LOL!
[Reply]
  • + 5
 Catherine Harnden's Huge Crash for sure! How her bike just stops and she flys on is very interesting!
  • + 1
 She seems to drop into the gap between her tyre and frame as she hits the lip, maybe this slows the back wheel so much that she flies forward, whatever happened i reckon it hurt!
  • + 1
 did she hit the back brake off the lip or something?
  • + 3
 Her ass catches the tire. I was there, she dislocated her elbow and was walking arounf a few hours after. Crazy tough!
  • + 2
 If you pause it you can see that the front tire is off the ground and the back is still on the lip when her butt hit the tire. Causing the bike to pivot like it did.
  • + 1
 It is butt and tires
[Reply]
  • + 6
 Omg.....Omg......my bike is in the river! Too funny!
[Reply]
  • + 1
 Cheered up my Monday lunchtime. I feel so much better revelling in others misery lmao. We've all been there though, mates in the distance pissing themselves when you can't even breath. If you don't fall off you're just not trying hard enough.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 About a year ago PB posted" funniest carsh" (I think) A vid clip about a guy accidentally bumping into a lady in a bike park. The "Lady" completely loses her shit. Does anyone recall this vid? Iv'e tried searching and can't find it . Thanks All K
  • + 2
 that's brilliant,thanks for posting it
  • + 1
 Brill Appreciate it ))
[Reply]
  • + 1
 The river one reaction is awesome. Wyatt hitting a tree is for sure KO to broken wrist, humerus, and destroyed shoulder.
But did no one else see how perfect that rock fit in the gap of his helmet in "Crash to the Face"? It hit him perfectly!
[Reply]
  • + 5
 Warning: DO NOT watch these videos if you intend to ride later...
  • + 3
 Exactly. I'm going on a trail ride tomorrow and haven't ridden in over a week. Now I'm nervous as hell.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 LOL @ Bike fall in class 5 rapids

"Dude my bike is in the river!"

My response if i was the guy riding in front
"Why did you put it in the river? did it look like it wanted a swim?"
[Reply]
  • + 4
 SOOOOO pumped the tim stack video made it in!!!!
[Reply]
  • + 1
 bike in river is awesome! do i propose a device like the surfers use that keeps us attached by a line to our bikes when bailing? only for that particular trail in that particular section? takers?
  • + 1
 Good idea until it gets caught on something then it would cause more problems than it solves. Smile
  • + 1
 retractable leash goes around your wrist and attaches to the handlebar. Not much for it to get caught on and in a crash the is slack so you aren't "attached" as much you could be.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 I don't so much 'enjoy' these, as find comfort in the knowledge that I'm not the only one who bails.Thanks to all my mtb brothers and sisters who join me on the forest floor.
[Reply]
  • + 1
 Wyatt hits a tree hard is the hardest I have ever seen someone hit those pesky trees. especially when the jump out that fast.

 I had my mind made up on the bike falling into the rapids, but then that kid in the tree and his helmet popped off and spun like crazy. The helmet trick bought my vote.
