 Today I learned that someone other than Loris or a Seagrave has actually worn those zebra stripe pants.
  • 49 1
 That guy's shoulder/collarbone escaped utter detonation by like 6 inches.
  • 7 0
 yeah, a dude that came within a whisker of a severely separated shoulder...

 Seeing that in slowmo for the first time I said, "noooooo" under my breath. Close call

 Zebras like this make fat Lions

 That particular pair probably have some brown streaks mixed in with the stripes...

 I thought zebra pants cleared that tree very nicely.

 I just figured it was Kaos.

 Damon Bradshaw wore them in the 80’s

 30secs . full face helmet- check, chest plate and back protector- check. bare skin shoulders and arms-check...

 Yeah, it makes me cringe every time I see someone ride in a tank top.
  • 5 3
 @h20-50: depends, on the usual hometrail laps i sometimes ride in a tank top, but never in a bikepark.
  • 19 2
 ride wearing no top or a vest top and stack it?

sympathy rating = zero.
  • 15 0
 @striveCF15: Same here. Depends on what I'm riding. But I'd say a good rule of thump would be that if I need a full face I also need sleeves.
  • 22 0
 @sino428: 'Rule of Thump' I'm a start using that

 @mattg95: Feel free, but I cant take credit. That belongs to auto-correct.

 Always seems beyond idiotic to see people in amour but not protecting things that are much more likely to get injured. It's basically a "well I'm not going to get a punctured lung or injure another internal organ but I'm ok with other injuries that could keep me off my bike for months." like wtf people?
  • 11 0
 @mattg95: so good it’s mind-bottling.

 Also, we just need more of this pov. Outside angles are nice and all, but getting to the soul of the crasher should be a focus in 2021.
  • 8 0
 Allow me to take a bow Smile
That crash actually wasn't bad, after patrol patched up my elbow flapper I still shredded the next day.

 Oh girl, that was a heavy impact. Watch the slo-mo...

 @kgodfrey52: What actually happened? Looked like you got bucked a little then lost the front end. Its hard to tell from that camera angle.
  • 2 0
 @h20-50: Doerfling. Tank-top king.
  • 2 0
 @striveCF15: Let me clarify, it’s not cringey, just makes me cringe. I’ve seen too many accidents from my sport bike days from no helmets and improper protection. All I see when someone wears a tank top is a meat grinder waiting for their skin. Admittedly I’d love to wear one in the summer out here when it hits the high 20’s and into the 30s
  • 1 0
 @h20-50: why not really man up and ride in your tighty whitees
  • 1 0
 @h20-50: Whistler queues in summer heat and you'll get a back protector and a tank top. I was the same before, always in love with 3/4 sleeves
  • 1 0
 @sino428: I always roll that Gwin Gap cause it's a tricky one to send, but the trail got cleaned up and I carried more speed than normal...I was going too fast to roll it and I ended up compressing into the face. I should have just gone for the gap!

 @bok-CZ: Born and raised in Texas, Whistler heat has nothing on Texas summers. I’ve been to Whistler many times as well, it’s hot, not Texas hot though

 @bok-CZ: whistler "heat" LOLOLOL

 @h20-50: Aah so then you're suited for long sleeve. I just had to swap long sleeve jersey and full body armour for a tank top and back plate

 Just as well Rob let him in front to get a better view of that cornering technique.
  • 11 1
 "Rob, let me show you how to ride Boy Scout"

 Many of these videos had a conversation afterward that involved the following: "Don't tell your mom."
  • 2 0
 Dad at 2:36: "So, Donny, try not to randomly take your right hand off the bars, mkay?"
  • 21 0
 But the question still remains.

Did he actually wash out or did Rob push him?

Hmm...

 Next time Rob: say NO!

 "can I jump in front so you can run me over?"

 3:46 love how it shows the harsh reality of mtb. One second your cruising along and the next your lying on the deck wondering what the hell happened

 Ejecto seato cuz!

 I'm still laffing at this one...I swear it's a cartoon with someone hitting a video game trap.

Or it's the mtb edition of Wipeout... www.youtube.com/watch?v=AIf8l469AWM .

 That was a good one. We’ve all been there. Maybe not quite so hilariously, but we’ve all been there.

 That's just how I had my big stack. One minute ok, the next with multiple broken things and no idea what happened. It sucks cause you can't even say "yeah I was sending it large and I fked up".

 @BorisBC35: I have a buddy that hits some solid lines. The really good hits, he usually doesn’t recall unless it’s something he’s ridden before.

 It's the nervous giggle version today

 Or evil chuckle?

 More like Beavis and Butt-head edition.

 The other Go Pro effect: confidence inappropriate for skill level.

 Based on that, I say give more riders go pro's! I do like my Friday evening chuckles! Big Grin

 Pink Bike - Please number each clip so we the commenters can say "#12 face planted hard", #4 went OTB". It would be better than saying "2:27 missed that turn". I can remember numbers but not times of the video.

Thank you for your consideration.

 So simple it’s genius. Surprised Levy the marketing guru has missed this.... Maybe he just like screwing with us?

 @Dornbox: yes, this a great idea, someone should tag a moderator so they see this

 Does anyone remember about 6 or 7 years ago, in Poland or Eastern Europe, a train of riders was jumping an 8 pack or something, the first few made it, then it was total carnage, the first who crashed, dived between the jump with riders avoiding him, one guy leap out of the way like superman behind a tree, there were bikes and rides everywhere. The cameraman at the side of the trail caught it all. Pure Friday Fails Gold...

 That's what you get for popping in front of Rob.

 Nobody puts Rob in a corner

 Rider One: “Sup... Do you mind if I pop in front of you Rob?”

Rob: “Yeah sure”

 2:39 The Kid crashes. Dad - You all right? Kid- starting to cry Dad- Its ok buddy, think of it this way, your'e gonna have two Christmases now!

 The kid took the “light hands” advice way too far.

 3:08-at least twice the skill of the average FF clipstar. I aspire to fail that well.
  • 4 0
 I was legit worried about 2:53. The slow mow was actually suspenseful for me, and I let out an audible "whew" when he missed that tree head first.

 Poor kid with the first ever flat to huck...
  • 1 0
 You know when your falling in a dream and just before you smack your face into the ground you wake up? That happened on the last clip, except I was awake. Best FFs ending ever for me: hope the rider was ok

Missing the tree came in second

Was bare arms at least wearing gloves?

 Beavis behind the camera in the opener

 LOL. I think Beavis was the rider. Sounded more like Butthead running the video.

 When the guy recording and everyone else watching starts to laugh before the rider even hits the feature you know they are in over their head.

Bro: "Cool cool. Ready when you are."
