Hits and Misses :: 2001-2011

Bad camera work, terrible editing, and even worse riding.

 This is a joke right?..........VOD? Facepalm
  • + 83
 It gives us a break from the usual unbelievable edit and (sorry to all those involved in the making of this video, who are probably better than me anyway!) gives us something to laugh at...
I like that Pinkbike made this VOD otherwise i would never of seen this brilliant montage of crashes Smile

 we need more vods like this

 this was pretty entertaining

 Hahaha, anyone hating on this have probably never rode a skinny in their life... or are just gapers. This video is awesome because it brings back sooo many awesome and painful memories. There's only so many ways you can eat shit on elevations (north shore) Wink

Nice job guys, this is a good change up.,, and my favorite was 5:45, laughed hard to that.

 I don't have a problem with this being vod at all. Im always happy to watch funny crashes, its cool to see the kind of things that people build, and it reassures me that I'm not terrible at biking (at least not as terrible as some people).

 whoever chooses these things better have a good explanation for this

 more entertaining than some previous VODs

 Some pretty gnarly clips and crashes. The very last one was impressive. What, two front flips before hitting the ground? Nice VOD for sure, I don't know what some are fussing about. Let's be men and not bicker like high-school girls. I'm just happy that all of this is available and we can share ideas. Moderators could put up a video of funny cats, I would still check it out and get a laugh.

 Were there actually any "hits"???
And i think the singer was worse than the ridersSmile

 Yeah dudes and dudettes, as you see MTBing is a hard working sport. Nothing goes right the first time.
Well captured trial by error. Made me want to take my bike and go crash. You guys took some beating in last 10 years.
That was you at 6:50?! Seen that clip ages ago and...oh shit. Tnx god you still ride.
  • + 4
 Nahhh.. That's John Wellburn, pro photographer you'll see on pb from time to time. He only caught a fat lip on that one.
  • + 9
 that last crash is GNARLY! props to the guy who ate shit on that one!

I'd also like to say, I can relate to 90% of the crashes in the video, bad judgement, not enough speed, silly decisions and generally just having 'one of those days'. Nice!

 I haven't laughed this much in a while!! Epic video, just wished I lived in BC now, those trails look epic!

 This is my favorite crash video now. This is what most crashes are like. Tumbles, spills, a little blood, minor* bruising, and laughter (except for the last crash). Most of us don't huck 40 footers. Most crashes are slow speed, little too hard on the brakes, slippery wipeouts. My very first time mountain biking I went over the handle bars 4 times. I hurt more snowboarding than I do mountain biking. Perhaps I'm not a very good snowboarder though...

 The Dead Milkmen shows that you have taste. Matching it to this wonderful footage shows that your taste is exquisite. Really you can't be too surprised that people don't appreciate the wonderful vocals. Thanks for the memories Smoke

 I cringed an unnatural amount of times while watching this. I also love how the crashes seemed to get continually worse as the video went along.

 These vivdeos show that no one was born with a mnt. bike attached to their ass, that 99% of us are not pros and that we all learn (hopefully) from our mistakes and get better, and yes, riding skinnies , ladders and doing gaps takes skill, guts, and concentartion

 Dead Milkmen and riding with backpacks... takes me back.

 what ive learned. 1. keep your momentum up. 2. people are attracted to trees. 3. hardtails should not be launched to flat.

 It doesnt need to be a mental edit to be VOD, this video shows the funny side of the sport the bits you dont really see in edits. personally i loved. made me laigh Smile
