 Shiet, that accent. HAHAHA.
  • + 59
 Right there (No.3) demonstrated quite nicely by Bas Van SteenBergen the down side of riding clip less.
  • + 33
 Sure blame it on the pedals!
  • + 38
 Just going to hijack this to say:

Don't expect to get anything out of evoc a friend and I have been waiting almost a year for winning sequence Saturday. Every time you talk to them its always the same "oh the bags are going out this week" or something similar.

Thanks for nothing guys
  • + 9
 watch it turquoise, whistleblowers often end up having "unfortunate accidents"
  • + 22
 I'll do what I want. Where I want. When I want.
  • + 6
 Good on ya Turq. I think mantis was just offering a friendly "warning" though.
  • + 6
 each their own, but if a huge bald guy in a track suit and a gold chain show up because you won a free fishing boat trip and the limo is waiting i'd be very careful.
  • + 3
 Don't even worry
  • + 1
 Nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......lol
  • - 3
 Was it the pedals on #3? To me it looked like he was riding too fast.
  • + 1
 Happens I be the bald guy was the shoffer actually and the trip was quite nice actually
  • + 3
 @Sith it was the speed but the bike kept on him through the fall because of the pedals lol. the same reason i dont ride with clip-ins. when i go down i dont need extra abuse from my own bike haha
  • + 3
 Yep, I haven't received my prize yet, not looking hopefull
  • + 54
 Was he riding clipless in No.3? If he was I vote that one.
  • + 19
 In the slowmo it looks very cliped-in... poor guy, it was all going so well...
  • + 64
 Except #3 is a pro rider. They should give it to someone who doesn't regularly get free stuff
  • + 27
 Why would you build whoops right in the landing?
  • + 20
 That's Bas Vansteezebergen he's fast, like really fast. That's probably why he landed on the whoops.
  • + 3
 @hamncheez watch some of his videos and you will see why haha
  • + 3
 Looked like he was going to double into a manual then double out. That guy's got so much style.
  • + 3
 That's a clip of when they filmed the deity edit for the DC31 Mohawk bar, In the edit he rides it clean
  • + 4
 He don't ride DH he jump the whole damn thing.
  • + 1
 ohh He is clipped in alright
  • + 40
 If the second one is really as big as it seems, props for hitting it so fast to overshot whole thing and walking away from it!!
  • + 3
 That was impressive! As I'm recovering from a recent concussion, the ones where they land hard seem more painful than funny. #2 is awesome and just seems rather embarrassing! I give him major BALLS points for sending it in the first place!
  • + 30
 Lol that mini backflip ramp lol! Looks like it was made by the flintstones... good effort on the flip tho
  • + 16
 the coat garnishing the logs as a crashmat shows true commitment!
  • + 1
 he has to increase the reboundWink
  • + 2
 @adwamski Clever use of the word 'garnish'. LOLOLOLOL
  • + 28
 I think last month should win this month too, just for the "Sheeit"
  • + 1
 Agreed, good call. Two months worth of prizes for the crazy Scots!
  • + 26
 vid number 1: i felt it. boy, i felt it right in my abs.
  • - 2
 If he held on, he could have rode it out.
  • + 3
 He might want to adjust his rebound damping a little?
  • + 6
 Haha, after he's removed the ribs from his lungs. I got winded just watching it.
  • + 1
 #1 was not committed. He let go almost before the front wheel touched down.
  • + 2
 Looks like he grabbed a hand full of front brake to complete his "ass over tea kettle" move..
  • + 1
 kidney guard needed in situation like this .... heal fast dude !
  • + 14
 #5 just because the guy on the bench seems to ignore the fact his mates just slammed!

#1 looked the most painful though!
  • + 7
 #5 but because the noise from the fail just kept going and going. His buddy on the bench was waiting for his friend to stop rolling....
  • + 1
 #5 was the funniest for sure Big Grin
  • + 13
 here's my contribution from Schladming WC track...
www.pinkbike.com/video/317258
  • + 3
 That was worthy
  • + 2
 Jesus! Massive jump. Fair play for hitting that. It is worthy. Hope your buddy is ok.
  • + 3
 Holy hell, your buddy's hip looked like it twisted. He really tried to hold onto the bike until the very end. That's a win my book.
  • + 13
 Number 2 is hilarious, the music makes it!
  • + 11
 Thanks to all those who failed in the month of March! You just made my night better!
  • + 7
 #1 was by far the worst and gets my vote.

Of course 3 is beautifully filmed and brutal too but a pro shouldn't win IMO
  • + 6
 The slow-mo on no.3 was pretty good. It looked like he was trying to manual through the rollers...................at that speed?
  • + 6
 Yes he was clipped in, that was Bas van Steenbergen, and he can and probably has manualed through that.
  • + 13
 But for our entertainment, not that time!
  • + 1
 His right foot hit so hard
  • + 1
 @dglobulator-hahahahaha!! Quality.
  • + 7
 #3 one more reason for not clipping in. That makes the score like 1257 to 1 in favor of flats
  • + 6
 Thats a hard one, probably either number 1 or number 3
  • + 1
 #1 was absolutely painful to watch. hope he's okay. gotta vote for #2 cause of the music, how far he overshot the landing, and he walked away like a champ. love crashes like that cause you learn what not to do and can get back on the bike and keep riding.
  • + 1
 #3 without a doubt! It looks like a full bodied overcook, but when you see the slo-mo, you realise that if ['when he's out of control'] he's reacting as fast as his front fork! It's almost the best save in history! I love it!!!
  • + 1
 I think that 1st was the funniest & most entertaining. Just the way he slipped both hands & then somersaulted. Looked more fun than painful. Anyone else shocked at how far that step up was in the 2nd? I thought it was gonna be a failed flip over like a 6' jump & the guy looked like he flew 30'. Maybe it is a 6' jump & maybe the problem was he flew 30'. :s I'd like to see how those whoops would be successfully done fast in the 3rd. The 4th scared me. If not for those bushes he might've broken his leg. 5th was LOLz but the landing was outta the shot.
  • + 1
 Number 1 looks really painful to me, face and chest full off front wheel, stomach full of stem, front flip to body slam in case you weren't already about to vomit from the stem belly.
  • + 1
 Haha, 1 was funny. It looked fun, like bouncing off a fitness ball. It seemed to me like he got lucky and absorbed the initial impact with his stomach then had the fortune of having his momentum roll off in cartwheels. But he's clearly in pain, hopefully it's just the wind knocked out of him.
  • + 3
 No2 made me laugh heaps. Just the extreme over kill and clearing that jump so far past the landing hahaha
  • + 4
 Harshest fail for this set? #1 takes the cake.
  • + 2
 Even if he was wearing flats in #3 he wouldve ate the same shit, in the same spot. Maybe with a little less transition tho lol
  • + 1
 who the hell in the right mind would ride dh with there damn feet clipped in you gotta be a retard clipless is safer at least you can break free from the bike in bad situations instead of being a rag doll
  • + 3
 I'm sorry, but last weeks winner cracks me up so much more than these ones.
  • + 1
 #3 - an advert for the stiffness of the Fox 40, haha! Big Grin Look at the flex on the wheel, but the fork barely moves!

#1 was just brutal.
  • + 2
 Cinematographer in #1 has vocal powers of the dead-sailor-rotation. Watch for him on the side of race tracks.
  • + 3
 The filming of #3 is outstanding!
  • - 1
 And that's why I use flats!
  • + 1
 Because it is a pro, filming presumably a pro edit
  • + 3
 Good to know Bas is human like the rest of us.
  • + 2
 I love watching these. Makes me feel better about myself to laugh at others' mountain biking abilities.
  • + 6
 It's called Schadenfreude...!
  • + 1

  • + 2

  • + 1
 football in the groin! football in the groin! also #1 was awesome. was that guy even trying to hold on or did he give up on take off?
  • + 1
 Number three. has to be that one had no glory, just a bad landing. One was ballsy but he was punching above his weight.
  • + 2
 #3 .. that's how you use your full 200mm of travel Big Grin
  • + 1

  • + 2
 1 or 3! Gnarly as nose case to fronty! and Van Steenbergen is just crazy!
  • + 2

  • + 1
 No.1 got his inspiration for his crash from the WWF. Did you see how far his bike flew?!
  • + 1
 1's the worst. 2 was amusing and irritating
  • + 1

 #3 Bas is da man!!! Super man with the bike following him!!
  • + 1
 Bas'es bike looked like it came with an ejection seat... ouch.
  • + 1
 I'm deciding between # 1 Front head wheelie and #3 Slow motion Superman
  • + 1
 Where do you need to uppload your video to take part in this?
  • + 1
 #3 that takeoff looks so sick!
  • + 1
 Haha ain't it just great?

 Number 3 definitely, what a unique photage
  • + 1
 no 3 is definitely the nightmare of all SPD users! oooffff!!!
  • + 1
 #3 all the way. Moto whoops immediately after a high speed gap? nutty

 Number #3 is brutal!!! Gets my vote!
  • + 1
 Number 1 or 3 both must of hurt abit
  • + 1
