 VERY underrated comment!

 @vemegen: That was such a priceless reaction! I laughed more at the use of "ty mendo" then the actual crash. Without a doubt Polish is a much funnier language than English.

 So much confidence. So little talent. Love it.

 I am honestly proud of the amount of people hucking their bodies through the air in the woods on the reg.
  • 33 0
 I like the ones where you get the helmet cam & the wide angel shot of the same crash. Thought their shit was going to be so tight they had to film it with multiple camera angles.

 Everyone and their bud has a gopro.

 So close, but yet so far

 I gotta say... The outcome seemed like the best-case scenario for that guy. I was expecting much worse!
  • 3 0
 It looked like he clipped inbefore sending it
  • 8 0
 I'm so happy he chose to go with a full face, no pads & gloves. Knowing your personalized impact points is key to maintaining confidence.
  • 2 0
 @justinb03: Right - I also figured he was going to pay a whole lot steeper price than he did.

 @blowmyfuse: The full face goes well with the short shorts.

 Jesse? No? You no jump here.
  • 39 0
 Jesse is a friend, yeah. I know he's been a good friend of mine. But lately something's changed that ain't hard to define Jesse's got himself a jump and I want to make it mine.

 @BobbyLite: and its launching him on his rides, its sending his body i just know it

 Seeing someone straddling a bike on top of a picnic table is like watching the first 5 minutes of a Hallmark movie. I already know how this ends!!

 At least something to laugh these days.

 So according to Friday Fails....statistically, if you ride a Reign. You will crash.

 During the 2020 Competition Ban, can we get more #Fails days? It's going to be a depressing couple of months and this content really helps.


Edit - I just noticed PTown's XXX trail at 1:26 ! Coastside repping - U see it!

Nothing to be ashamed of! Those are full commitment jumps

 @endlessblockades: I honestly thought it was a fun bail. A couple inches further back whole different story though

 The laughing cameraman is the best part of the videos.
  • 4 0
 After having first watched it on mute, I was surprised (and disappointed) that wheely-on-skinny guy @ 3:09 didn’t come with a good dose of laughter.

 @mi-bike: He did however tick every single cliche except showing his Dentist Union membership card.

 Don't these riders know. If there's a camera filming that jump they're trying to make, it's going to be a case or a dead sailor. Duh!
  • 4 0
 2:50 to be fair that's a pretty deceptive jump disguised as a log roll over.
  • 2 1
 Its also only about a foot tall and a bike length long...
  • 3 0
 I stupidly his stuff blind all the time, so I could totally relate to that scream the minute she discovered she was in over her head!
  • 5 0
 I was just expecting to see a video of stock market trackers.

 Great r editing! 2:20 a rider that can't stay back, immediately followed by one that wont move forward. Slomo lookout too, superb.
By commenting we all acknowledge our past mistakes, right?

 Always a bright spot in the week especially one as crappy as this doom and gloom week.

 This is how the world ends...with a bang, then a whimper.

 Ass to rock drop looks painful.
  • 1 0
 Ass to dirt is painful enough when it's that fast. Ass to rock? Ouch.

 It's like these people don't know if they're riding a bicycle or flying a goddamn airplane- and then trying to decide mid-air.
  • 3 0
 how does the Odgen bike park always make its way into these
  • 3 0
 The real question is, was the first guy ever on his bike?
  • 3 0
 Looked more like Megatron threw his ass off the balcony.

 I got excited when yI saw a bunch of videos that were posted at the same time as mine... Then it never came.. Gotta start sending harder I suppose....

 Ok I've been trying to understand this reference for a while are Dead Sailor crashes just Over the Bar crashes, or landings on the front wheel?
  • 4 2
 dead sailor is when you compress improperly into a jump and your rear wheel gets kicked up as you take off from the jump. This makes you roll forward mid-air, usually in a stiff, head down position much like a dead sailor floating in the ocean.
  • 2 0
 crash at 3:04 is pretty much a textbook dead sailor
  • 3 0
 @arrowheadrush: nah nah nah, dead sailor is when you are sailing through the air on a bad course cause of bad body language off the lip, poorly shaped jump, a wierd rock you get a piece of or whatever, the point is you do nothing to recover so you can land it or exit gracefully. instead a dead sailor just stays idle as they head for disaster.
  • 1 0
 Any drowned corpse will do. The emphasis is on stiff and head-down, as stated above. A longer explanation (medium.com/@Duffsam/mountain-biking-the-dead-sailor-a-physics-perspective-8ed023d7a85a) still doesn't do physics justice, but it's close enough. Suspension compounds the subtleties of normal force. For best results, close rebound and open pedaling platform as much as possible.
  • 2 0
 IME, it's a result of arms and legs being too stiff off the lip, so the bike doesn't come up under you. This results in not being able to move the bike in the air because your arms and legs are already extended. And that results in having no control of the bike, at that point you're just going for a ride (like a dead sailor) and maybe, if you're lucky, the bike will come down straight and on 2 wheels.
