My Biggest Crash Ever: I overshot the Bromont Bridge (which is a 35 foot gap with a 15 foot long landing). That's basically a 45 foot to flat nose dive.

 How some of these guys get away with no serious injuries is mind blowing! Especially the moron who walked across the landing in the 3rd vid and recieved a bike in the head. Who does that? If I was that rider, I'd be tempted to give him another whack around the head!
  • + 40
 The human body is a miraculous thing, often much stronger than we give it credit for.
  • + 42
 Looks like...Trek was the pain in the neck.. YEEAAAAHHHH!!!
  • + 32
 f*cked up a manual on a little root today and fell of the back and twisted my knee at like 2km/h and there's people here snapping bikes and they're fine!!! Just my luck
  • + 20
 Pause "race crash" at the right moment and you see the kid getting decapitated by the dude's front tire. :o
  • + 8
 The man standing on the landing was a young, drunken Idiot!
  • + 11
 happened to me at a skate park once, dude just walked out as I was in the air over a jump box, front wheel came down in his shoulder an 'luckily'? knocked him side ways
I landed an rolled out of it like a BOSS!
  • + 3
 in the last video the guy was probably just thinking shnelly fucking meatpants!
  • + 1
 i see what you did there finley
  • + 1
 @scott-townes - I actually paused that, too. Le guillotine is open for business!
  • + 1
 hope the guy in the last vid had a good lawyer.....
  • + 3
 Oh that Road Gap Case.... dammmmmmmm
  • + 45
 thank you thank you thank you!
  • + 62
 Fails for your Friday... Its been far too long!
  • + 26
 Anyone else think that Gee wasn't quite the same for the rest of the season since that crash? It didn't look terrible but it was fast, may have damaged his nuts too..
  • + 15
 Maybe dude, looked pretty terrible to me though. That fast, blinded into woods...not knowing whats gonna hit you...gulp. I´m glad it didnt end worse for the Mr Gee.
  • + 2
 Looking back at it now, that's where Gee's season leveled-off, more or less. He didn't check the trunk once...he checked twice. Never a good sign. I rock a stem-pad on my bike for a reason...that's one of the main ones in his vid. Makes me shudder just thinking about it.
  • + 25
 Bike Park Innovation is the best, I find it ironic that pinkbike just posted a poll asking if you ever had any near-death experiences.
  • + 24
 I love how in the Chatel video there's already a guy down there who wasn't even part of the group!
  • + 77
 Yeah what was that guy doing? Just imagine you're minding your own business taking a quiet peaceful dump in a grassy meadow up a mountain and three hooligans on bikes come hurtling over the hand rail and crash land next to you. That would properly put you off your flow...
  • + 8
 @ Veero i don't think a comment on pinkbikes has ever made me laugh that hard.
  • + 2
 I would instantly switch from #1 mode to #2 mode if I were that guy. lol
  • + 18
 Finally! Fails ;> Anyway greetings from hospital...
  • + 45
 Wont ask u why are you there with such a name!!!
  • + 22
 I got problem with my heart but you made my day Big Grin
  • + 6
 Oops apologies mate and of course healing vibes! Cheers!
  • + 4
 Thanks but nothing to apology Wink Anyway if I'm going to die I hope I'll die happy, on my bike!

 That little kid will never ride again. Dad should have been on the bridge with him to ease his fear - and Dad keeps the camera going as he lays there on the ground.
  • + 7
 Init just , don't run to the aid of your screaming child ... Just keep filming ! Moron !
  • + 24
 My father just kind of let me learn the hard way, and I think it helped me get over some fears. At least, that's what my therapist tells me.
  • + 2
 I guess that's okay, but not over a bridge.
  • + 2
 in the kids defense slippery bridges are sketchy i've gone off a few myself and the last one took out my fibula :/ but I'm amazed at the guy who's brake gave out and he nailed that tree damnn
  • + 5
 It was his brother filming so it makes a huge difference haha.
  • + 2
 Don't save your child, just take a picture..

 But he can send the footage to harry Hill and get £250 at his little child's expense
  • + 11
 that's it Gee!!! drop ya pants and check uve still got a cock , and all will be just okay mate , bruises go matey , ride on!
  • + 2
 yeah I did laugh when I saw him drop his pants to check if he'd ripped his cock off or not! his breathing became slightly more relaxed when he saw hi old man was intact !!
  • + 2
 Girlfriend says, "Damn that peak"! Just saying!
  • + 3
 I've had to check under the hood a couple/few times over the years. Probably one of the scariest moments you can have. I know I was expecting to see a bloody mess each time...such a relief when you know the soldier is still intact!!

 where has the video with the broken GT fury frame from DH Worldcup in Hafjell gone??????

Damn Pinkbike continues to censor the videos....

New GT-Sponsorship?

 He said the bike was damaged in transit from South Africa. To be fair it was a pre production frame that was more than likely a lighter version too. Still a ridiculously scary crash to have been piloting.

 I think fails for your friday is the only time I can safely say "I CAN DO THAT!" with all these Rampage recaps at the minute
  • + 2
 Or an I have done that
  • + 4
 Bromont Bridge...two decades of teaching you to pay attention even as your run is almost done. What is the saying, "most accidents happen close to home"
  • + 5
 bwahahahaha "who doesn't like a faceful of wood"
I died laughing.
  • + 4
 I love the Chatel one, if they made that line they'd have hit it perfectly.
  • + 5
 Chatel video should be the fail of the year! Big Grin
  • + 4
 Not the best confidence boost for pushing your liits over the weekend!!!!

Maybe Monday misses would be better??!!?? ha

 Referring to the last photograph: 1 out of every 25 riders will be injured from farting at speed. Now go back up and look at it like a good lad.
  • + 2
 Bike Park Innovation: i was in the lift chair above and saw it live. funny shit right there
  • + 1
 thank zeus for the P-bike video player. my shitty internet can't even play youtube at 144 w/o stopping the whole freakin time.
  • + 1
 Erm... are you sure that guys okay in the 'race crash' video? If you pause it at the right time, the guys front wheel is directly on his neck!
  • + 1
 If you go to the comments it says the little kid was back on his bike in 3 days, the guy who did the head chopping was off the bike for 3 weeks though
  • + 4
 Ian Morrison; Epic!
  • + 4
 Aaah, TGIF.
  • + 3
 The little kids crash was by far the most intense xD

 That first vid, is it on purpose or not ?
