 Bloody spaniels. Can't impress them with an epic save, probably rolled in something dead on the way back and stinks the car out to this day.

 Always good to get a dog's reaction! A great clip!

 Must've helped someone fix their bike on trail or lent a tube out. Definitely kept his bike karma points in the positive.

 Came here to say just this.

 If he continues with this technique of trying to gain height and distance by bumping himself forward off the landing and tucking the bike under he’ll end up like the guy at 2:03 who used exactly same technique. They both saw they are going too slow in the last moment so they tried to hop forward with the whole body and bike.

 Dog played it pretty cool. Almost like he’s seen it before

 sometimes, the nose picks you.

 I think PB should start a "Saturday Saves" video series. Or maybe SundaySaves. whatever. Saves is the key point. Because there have been some unreal saves in Friday Fails.

 Nose bonk of the year!

 Totally agree. That bloke gets the Andreu Lacondeguy Award

 0:36 guy crashed while trying to outrun the shimano duck that was chasing him. Squawk squawk

  • 6 0
 That was funny AF
  • 4 0
 I really don't get what happens to him. Why does the bike front turn?
  • 10 0
 Probably the first crash I've seen where someone other than the guy crashing will be asking if their bike is OK
  • 6 0
 He saw a bee
  • 4 0
 I literally have no idea what just happened here!! It's like he was riding along and an invisible giant slapped him off his bike. WTF??
  • 3 0
 @mybaben: can see at the last minute he throws his weight right back, instead of pumping into the lip he just compresses into it like a sack of potatoes and his arms buckle and the front veers off... either that or the invisible giant theory also sounds pretty solid, some of these forests are pretty spooked

 anyone getting three quarters through a backflip isn't failing, just learning

 1 year to the day today I smacked a tree. Shattered my knee into a half dozen pieces. 9 screws and 9 months of PT later, I still can't help myself and watch every Friday fail. I'm back on a bike, but brothers... avoid them trees! They'll win 10 out of 10 times...
  • 11 0
 9 out of 10.. I one time ran into a dead tree and it toppled with me haha Big Grin

Glad you're back on the bike!

 @alexmander: That's cool. One time years ago a dead ok limb fell on my back as I Squeezed under it. It pinned me in place on my feet, standing.
I instantly thought for a moment that this was how Atlas must feel all the time

 Jesus. Were you wearing pads?

 I rebounded off a tree and felled a sapling on the other side of the trail - my only victory so far.
  • 2 0
 @Earlistotle: My pudding was one of the old Blackburn Mississippi backpacks with almost a gallon of water on my back. Surprisingly neither of the 100oz. bladders sprung a leak. Right after my 'Atlas" reflection, I started in with the paranoia, think See Air Uh clubbers had set a trap for me. It's still good for a laugh after almost 20 years gone by.

 No collarbones were harmed in the making of these videos. Wait, no I had that backwards. ALL collorbones were harmed in the making of these videos.

 Quick question: If I play the Friday Fails video while I'm in the middle of a work conference call, will anyone be able to hear it?

 Maybe there should be an occasional video for amazing recoveries. Saturday Saves.

 There's a solemn beauty in those slow motion crashes... Unless you're the rider. I know all too well the panic of not having enough speed

 Can there be a Friday Saves edition of Friday Fails?
  • 1 0
 How do people start ragdolling as they leave a drop? f*ck get the basics right first.

At least this week didn't seem to have anyone who could really ride whooping themselves......that always makes me worry what when you see a good rider on a fail vid.

 2:25 what a save

 Always on a Friday.... just wait and ride on Saturday Razz

 First time I've heard someone crash and actually say "ouch." You crash and THAT'S the first thing that comes to mind? lol

 "Ouch" comes out when your pride has been hurt more than your body!

 @ 1:50 the guy on Papa Bear....WEAK....just last weekend a guy broke his wheel right off his bike...so many others....(mostly while drunk). We shall see more after this weekend at the 12 Hours of Santos.

 Nice to recognize so Florida trails here.

 @TwoNGlenn: One would think that OMBA would announce things on a forum such as this (you know, small things like FTF...). That would however make sense.

 For a second I thought he was going to accidentally send that to flat and explode in a million pieces.

 PB unified for once, every one willing the slo mo guy to save it ,
  • 4 1
 Failed front flips edition plus bonus epic save.
  • 2 0
 guy at 1:29 is what I would look like trying to backflip. Almost but in reality not even close!
  • 2 3
 The one at 1:38 (which looks like in Woburn) could have gone really bad, had the berm been 1m closer or he’d fly 1m farther. I have a friend who broke half of his body this way and a few people broke their necks and spines when they came to instant stop by falling on counter slope of a berm/ pumptrack roller. Ugh... hope he’s ok

 Some of these wrecks im just like, how? Others you can see in the persons face they’re done with bicycles for a little while

 2:37, where the only thing further up his butt than his seatpost is a horse shoe!
  • 1 0
 I really enjoy these Friday segments, but still, I think it points to the fact that we all, as riders, need to take a bit more care of each other.

 Does no one know how to lift their front wheel up for a step-up? Sooooo many people ate sh*t lol

 3:14 looks like a snapped collarbone!

 0:34 what even happened
  • 1 1
 "culva??"
  • 6 0
 Kurva. Polish for "F**k". Literal translation is "whore". Comes from the medieval practice of punishing prostitutes by breaking their backs over the curve (kurva) of a barrel. Another charming Catholic tradition...
  • 1 0
 Kurwa.. polish for ‘oh shit!’
  • 3 0
 Kurva mać is even stronger, the Poles at my workplace only say it when things go REALLY wrong.
