 You get the feeling that dog has seen a lot of shitty riding...
Kinda pauses and you can almost see the thought bubble "here we go again"

 Every time I crash with my dog, he just stands over me with a look of "again.....really?"
  • 11 0
 That was easily my favorite.

 Wow, I found it hilarious how the dog slowly saunters over that crest, but your comment perfectly sums up why its so funny! A dog with more confidence in their owner would have been ripping around that corner with him.

 HaHa I don't know, could have been a "Hey whatcha doing rolling around on the ground over there?"

 That first one.... full send.

 After watching a few times, I'm surprised he bailed and didnt try to ride it out. Split second decision either way.

 He was trying to reach 88mph to time travel.

 I didn't think he was ever going to land. But then he did.

 Does anyone recognize that spot from a pros vid here on Pinkbike past?

 @Smknjoe: It's SE Washington. Used to ride there all the time.

 That front flip was success.

 10 points for style and execution.

 There was zero fail there. All I saw was pure send and just about making it.

 @friendlyfoe: pure class, i'd even say it was a staged fail .

 Props to the kid in the blue shirt for two pretty good slams in a row! Obviously he wasn't scared off by his first crash and had the courage to keep sending!

 Nothing about his riding struck me as courageous. You sure English is your first language?

 @blowmyfuse: If you slam like he did at first, then get up and keep sending in the same session (looks like same day), you're courageous. Bran Stark: "Can a man still be brave if he's afraid?" Ned Stark: "That is the only time a man can be brave, when he's scared as shit but still fully sending it." -Game of Thrones

 @blowmyfuse: is English your first language? Courage is the choice and willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, etc...Being courageous is a state of mind.

 Pretty sure what he did was just lack of skill advancement. Had no business attempting that stuff until either the meth cleared out of his system or he could successfully navigate a plastic WalMart skate kicker at least 3 times in a row.
I thought it was Super Dave!!!

 Not sure if stubbornly getting hurt on a feature too hard for you is courage. Some other words come to mind.

 @Konyp: I know...look how hardcore the goons are downvoting my comment. I feel like his entire crew is on PB today taking up for the kid.
  • 2 5
 @snatchclown: what about Vertigo?
  • 17 0
 @blowmyfuse: I don't know this kid, but he's clearly trying. Failure is apart of learning and should be encouraged. I'm down voting you because you seem like a grouchy loser.

 At first I thought it was a mannequin on a ghost-ridden bike, they way he kept just sorta rolling over stuff on the trail...

 @mgough33: you need a hug? I got hugs for days!!! Didn't know we all had to have that soft skin and buttery smooth complexion on Fail Friday.

 @plyawn: That's what I thought. I thought it was a Super Dave skit and rewinded...but nope, living and breathing.

 @blowmyfuse: surprised you don’t have anything better to do as a squid in his mid 40’s than to clown on some kid. Judging by your videos you could use a lesson or two. You are definitely not the courageous one. At least this kid is trying something out of his comfort zone. Figured it’s worth mentioning I have no connection to this rider and nor did I down vote you. Good luck with life!

 @snatchclown: thank you...oh thank you for being the rescuer and salvation of the oppressed and meek oh you winner of insults and "got your back kid" well to do keyboard heroism. Please sling those heavy handed 40+ insults with aplumb and vigor you altruistic righter of wrongs and balance the scales of the internet.

You've helped the young fella gain his self respect back all whilst wounding me to my video core. Glad you're on the patrol officer snatchclowns Cop

 Best indication of impending fail?

4-5 guys sitting around a jump watching the one guy with enough balls to try it.

 That and the guy that enters the chunky rock garden at snail pace grabbing hand fulls of brake.

 I think it is someone saying "Let me film it." as you consider attempting something gnarly.

 I love the totally chill dog at 1:55 knowing he doesn't have to hurry because his owner crashed again.

 yeah, lots of front rims made of lead in this week's installment.

 How many times does a bike hit you on the back of your head after an OTB (1.40)? That poor guy got a reminder from his bike telling him to learn to ride better. My head hurts every time I see this as it has been common place for me.

 Dude at 2:06 is not being a good trail steward. The lesson I am learning from his fail is that is that you go on muddy trails, you might fall.

 It may have been the UFO sighting at 2:10 taking him down.

 Haha, it was Åre bike festival last year and the upper parts of the mountain was really muddy. It also rained the entire week, so everyone who was at the festival last year will remember it as the wet one.

It wasn't my only fail that week, there was plenty more! All the hundreds of visitors to the bike festival have their own story of the mud from Åre #älskaåre

 Damn that first one looks really smooth until the brutal landing comes up

 Yeah until theres is no more landing to come lol

 1:05 That's what you get for wrecking berms

 I was gonna say, schralping looks good in slo-mo youtube edits but doesn't it destroy the trail?

 Looks like a few people were inspired by Pinkbike's Huck to Flat feature. Huck to Flat...to scorpion...

 I feel like a lot of spills can be prevented by riders being physically stronger and not panicking when their bike gets unplanted.

 Usually people look really amateur on FF and i just laugh, but a lot of those dudes were sending it!

 foam party at the end.. also loved how the guy sticks his ungloved soft hand between his helmet and bike when it lands on him
