We've all been there: It's the rock roll you've done a thousand times before, that one off-camber root section, or maybe it's your first time hitting a brand new drop - you crash. Accidentally crashes are part of our sports. EVOC certainly don’t want you to provoke crashes for this competition but they would like to keep you safe on your next adventure by dishing out prizing for the best fail of each month. Here are our picks for June.

 Ha ha me too The noises!!!

 The reality check/reminder for my skill level every month..!
  • + 1
 @jamesdippy: I love #8 for the whimpy "aoowwwww" at the end. #3's "whoeah" killed me.
  • + 46
 i vote Mcduff at the end. I guess its not a fail as he is going to try again. its more like a first attempt.
  • + 8
 I'm impressed how soon he is shooting for a re-do...
  • + 7
 I vote the Kong rag doll. What a lucky bastard he rolled into that bush.
  • + 29
 #3 for the cocky guy talking at the beginning: "I can't tell you how many dozens of times I've done this." I can only assume he just wrecked as well.

Hope everyone made it out OK!
  • + 22
 "I totally believe you" replies the man not falling for the BS spilling out of his mouth
  • + 8
 There's something ironic about riding in a place called "Falls City".

That's a big step-up! Hope you're all good!
  • + 3
 @patrickv155: Hahaha, nailed it. That was me, playing nice...then playing medic.
  • + 1
 @ImaKlyde: was that kid ok?
  • + 2
 @Reignonme: yes. Beat up, but not broken up. Super good attitude and rider, just had a moment. His front wheel had better days, but...
  • + 12
 I wanna give it to #3 for the pre-fail moan, but the abrupt ending to the clip leaves me wanting resolution.
So I'll give it to #7 for going just slow enough to fail, but not slow enough to to just realize he shouldn't commit.
  • + 6
 That little shout of despair in #3 makes the video.
  • + 10
 Falls City? You mean Fails City, right?
  • + 5
 AKA Blackrock. This video doesn't even come close to doing this massive step-up to road gap drop any justice. It is much bigger in person. As soon as he didn't carry much speed after the step-up I could see what was going to happen. Ouch.
  • + 3
 @thrasher2: same. I saw him slowly pedal and out loud said "oh noooo"
  • + 2
 @thrasher2: agreed, that thing is intimidating as hell. Props to that rider for even attempting. Black Rock is an amazing place.
  • + 3
 @oldenglish: every time I'm there for a shuttle day I wish for someone to send it over the truck
  • + 7
 #6 for me, that's a long way to a heavy fall on wood. nasty. Props to #1 for going hard on smasher tho, on a hardtail nonetheless!
  • + 6
 As much as I want to say Number 2, it gets an automatic DQ for being filmed vertical. There are no excuses for this, ever.

 No way #8 is San Mateo! Looks like Tahoe.
  • + 2
 The location is based on where the video was posted from.
  • + 0
 Reminds me of martis
  • + 2
 yeah san mateo is my home town... it was in tahoe
  • - 2
 @Tkavan01: it was very close to the mantis area
  • + 6
 The title and all the playing backwards ruined number #2. Would have been a good one
  • + 7
 Not sure if I would ever film for Mr. Biker on #8 again..
  • + 1
 yeah... the filmer made it out okay though haha
  • + 5
 #8 could have given a little of his speed to #3 and #6 - that would have likely prevented 3 fails this month
  • + 4
 #5, just because I never thought I would see a video from (of all places) Listowel, Ontario on Pinkbike.
  • + 1
 #3 - you can see where it all went wrong. Hits the step up fine but then hangs up on the l/h corner before the ramp/drop. Lost so much speed he should have bailed at that point but tried to hit it while barely moving and save it with a bit of a hop. Too little too late...
  • + 4
 #6 ironically not so prophetic quote: "whoa, barely made it."
  • + 2
 If #6 walked away with only sore ribs like the title of the video says, then he's pretty lucky. Watching it I was like "Welp, there goes his clavicle."
  • + 2
 I've seen that picture of the guy flying off this loop so many times, but never been able to find where its from
  • + 1

 At least #2 got back up and on his bike right away
  • + 2
 some of these looked painful.
  • + 2
 #2 for how chill they were
  • + 1
 #7 - If someone fails in the woods and no one can see it, is it really a fail?
  • + 2
 In that case maybe I didn't fail at least twice earlier today
  • + 1
