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.

 HAAAAA! ^_^/

 #3 for when pumping every ounce of speed from the track is one ounce too fast!!
  • + 32
 I thought #3 was going to go horribly bad... He got a 'get out of hospital free' card there...
  • + 20
 Loved his laid back reaction....."I'm ok, I was loose". Total opposite on #4
  • + 18
 @TheDoctoRR: yeah we don't have those in the US...
  • + 3
 I wonder if he didn't panic, maybe he would have recovered.
  • + 65
 How did this not make the list?

 hahah hate to see it but that was pretty funny
  • + 11
 It Broke! HAHAHA, then he just drags it away! Classic
  • + 13
 @jayacheess : Probably because vendors wouldn't like PB advertising their product failures.
It amazes and scares me a little that the headtube sheared from such a minor impact. I guess in any bunch of parts you'll get the odd dud, but still scary.
  • + 8
 Intense bicycles certainly did warn PB not to mention this one ... not a good advertising ... knowing that they just released their new 11k tracer
  • + 5
 You ripped it out of the head tube, WOW what a fail. That is why your ride with friends to share the laugh. If you can!
  • + 8
 "really disappointing" hahahaha, that sad look on his face is so funny. I feel bad for him, but so funny!
  • + 3
 Fkng brilliant. Horrible, hilarious, and brilliant. My fav!
  • + 1
 C'mon, PB! That's a win for sure. Ouch.
  • + 1
 That has my vote
  • + 24
 #2 is the worst kind of crash, all that forward momentum just becomes spinning death as you dent the earth with your face.
#3 is the best where it'll all goes horribly wrong and you somehow walk away with nothing but a bucket full of adrenaline and dopamine!
  • + 13
 Seeing that #2 clip a few times, the way that guy landed on his head/neck he's really lucky he wasn't seriously injured, I'd rather come off at high speed than suffer a crash like that.
  • + 0
 You mean number 1 clip, he was number one!
  • + 6
 Nevermind #2 also lands on his neck too don't mind me.
  • + 14
 2 the worst...4 for comedy value
  • + 12
 I like #4 for the drama, and #5 because it was so Napoleon Dynamite.
  • + 1
 @McNubbin: Yeah in #4 and #5 wins in the "less than stellar" categories
  • + 13
 It seems that if you go riding in Rotorua you are gonna have a crash haha
  • + 11
 "Are u f*cking all good"
  • + 9
 #7 the last second of the vid...??? What kinda finger action is going on there? Razz
  • + 1
 haha I wondered the same thing
  • + 1
 Yes! Also whats up with the thing around his neck?
  • + 2
 That happens when your body is in shock, your brain is alert but you body is tell you to lay down! Thats a neck warmer, keep your body warm if your neck is warm, he obviously lives where the temps are below freezing!
  • + 1
 This one was only 50% fail. Looks like the bike nailed the backside clean.
  • + 1
 I don t get it too Big Grin
  • + 1
 Its Rocket Power Cartoon "Woogidi woogidi woogidi"!!!
  • + 7
 I think the one from Rotorua should win....
  • + 4
 If rider in #4 was in clip #3, it could've gotten much worse.

#7 is I don't know.. The rider cased the jump but the bike didn't. Painful.
  • + 6
 Repping Pacifica pretty well hahaha
  • + 4
 Yeah, but of all P-Town jumps to crash on...
  • + 3
 @DirtbagMatt: Was trying to be sarcastic haha
  • + 3
 I had to replay it to figure out what happened.. Looked like made it.. I need to get back out there, once it finally stops raining. good spot.
  • + 1
 @shrockie: keep your feet on the pedals. They give a lot more support than nuts on a top tube.
  • + 4
 Even though you win a sick back pack, I hope I never ever win that back pack. Unless if Im just filming a grom eating the dirt. Then Ill take it. Smile
  • + 1
 yes, winning a backpack was much better when it was #sequencesaturday
  • + 0
 Hands down! #5. Brutal pedal miss! ;-)
  • + 2
 Something like that happened to me like a week ago. I got a cut of like 10 cms, and like 15 stitches in total, including some inside. Is always the left leg! Pins are too sharp.
BTW Any tips? I know how to bunny hops and lift the front wheel, but I can't see to keep the weight right into the pedals when I do big drops at which I get air time.

  • + 3
 What about Nik Nestoroff jumping into a rut? That was gnarly as hell
  • + 1
 I think @pinkbicycle and @yerbikesux are in a competition for most neg propped comments in a single PB article. I'll just say it looks like a close match...
  • + 1
 I think pinkbicycle is an alter-ego of another pinkbiker
  • + 1
 I dare say that that man in #7 was off the bike before he was even in the air
  • + 2
 #2 %100! face takes %70 impact. Anyone know if he lived?
  • + 2
 Nik Nestoroff's crash should be up here.
