 That last one nearly gave me an anxiety attack, he was on the edge of life for like 10 seconds lol.

 Yeah, that is worst nightmare... having something that kicks you off the edge into exposure.

 That closing shot of carbon frame splayed across big rock makes me feel better about my alloy frame.

Nice that he held on for so long though

 First reaction: check the condition of carbon bike. All else be damned.

 @wellbastardfast IINM, that's from the Megavalanche course after you get down from the snow fields.

 @Augustus-G: I was thinking the same.

 And then he came up against a Rock and a hard place, ouch

 He should have been riding an Ibis

 Watch is shadow, its like a follow cam and shows a better perspective of his rodeo ride tussle!

 he took the French line.....him and his buddies had been scouting that line for days. Execution was perfect! ????

 definitely the one to end on.

otherwise, the biggest fail in this series of clips is all the people who still don’t know any better to turn their phone 90 degrees to the horizontal position.

 2:30 - We’ve all been there … that awkward moment when you’re cruising along and find some dude stuck in a tree.

 The worst is when they don't say "hi." Like, what is their problem?
  • 33 3
 1:24 sounded like Mitch McConnell finishing
  • 1 0
 Was this Frederick Watershed? Looks like where I separated my shoulder a couple months back
  • 1 0
 A very noisy crash for sure. Didn't sound good.
  • 1 0
 @Gdg1: I was wondering if it was at Raystown/Allagripis.
  • 1 0
 Seemed a bit dramatic to me, he wasn’t clipping that hard...

 Don't reach for the ground.. When your going off a jump And you hit a small bump When your ass goes in the air, don't despair It's the trail that you are bound Don't reach for the ground When you are feeling insecure Bend your knees to be sure Bend your arms, keep your fundamentals sound Unless its your ass you want to pound Don't reach for the ground
  • 2 0
 Yeah I broke my wrist really badly by reaching for the ground after I cased a table and got sent otb.

 1:18. Oh boy
  • 2 0
 Is he dead?
  • 1 0
 @Lanebobane: concussed at least. Thank goodness he was wearing a FF. He'd be picking his teeth out of his brain otherwise.
  • 1 0
 Yep, a sore one for sure and the worst (best) this week I'd say
  • 4 0
 I was thinking it was a pretty mellow week, and then they just slipped that one in there. Pretty sure that dude forgot the last 8 months of his life, could be worse.

 Thats chicksands bikepark that is. Not far from me. I wasn't there last weekend but a mate told me 4 people left in ambulances. One was an air ambulance...

 I'm a simple man: I see a new Friday Fails and I click.

 While not a spectacular riding incident caught on video I had my own Friday fail today. Left a glove lying on my wheel spokes which the derailleur then ate and broke the chain.

 Nice eclectic mix. Guy stuck in the tree FTW.
  • 1 0
 That made me laugh
  • 8 0
 The friend laughing at 1:42, so funny!

We've all been there, should be concerned with sympathy but can't help ourselves.
  • 5 0
 2:05 gets honorable mention. The rider's reaction is hilarious and the cameraman loses it.

 1 learn how to land 2 learn how to bar spin This is the only acceptable sequence.

 He was trying to xup and looks like his brake lever got caught on the tt or cables. Helpless af

 The noise at 1:25 - I didn't know zombies could ride bikes!
  • 7 0
 I'm struggling to understand how 2:44 was SUPPOSED to go? Seems like a high-speed mega yank huck to uphill?
  • 4 0
 Yeah that was a head scratcher. It ended the only way it could have ended.
  • 1 0
 Based on your comment I thought it was the 1:00 clip. Uphill jump into a rock face. How was that supposed to end?
  • 6 0
 Freeride’s not dead. And so much funnier when it’s someone else’s testicles...
  • 5 0
 It takes an impressive set to fuck up your line on a Megavalanche-style descent and try to ride it out... straight down the mountain. Time for a quick panic bail!
  • 4 0
 I was yelling 'C'mon!' at him, willing him to ride it out.

 Lots of loosened nuts this Friday.

 The last dude was Enduro as fuck. Until he wasn't!

 Urrraaarrggghh. Urrraaarruurrgghh!!! Repeat.

 that last one is real spooky man....the panicked noises as he picks op speed in that alpine meadow
  • 6 0
 I found that one the most relatable...when you find yourself off course and it keeps getting worse...bigger and bigger boulders and ruts...rocks smashing into your downtube...last big one of these I bent my frame riding into a tree stump hidden in a clump of long grass! Sad times
  • 1 0
 Very scary

 2:34 wins most creative dismount award
  • 3 0
 Yeah, finally something new.
  • 8 7
 Looks like COVID-related unemployement has hit the Ibises* too.

So many of these fails could have been avoided if they were there doing their job.

*Ibises? Ibisi? Ibi? Ibisee

Disclaimer: This is an Ibis reference and not an attempt to make light of anyone who has suffered financially as a result of the pandemic. I sympathise entirely with anyone who has.

 I have to say this is the most offensive comment I have ever read, in my entire life!!

 I don't think trees should needlessly be removed in the trail building process, but the tree that takes the guy out at 1:24 should not be there or at least build up some dirt to push riders out.
  • 3 0
 I saw a whole new genre of crashes this week. Not even doing a jump or going fast just fall down. I like it.
  • 4 0
 The guy at 1:00 set the bar high. And the rest did not disappoint.
  • 2 0
 I'm watching it over and over again, I just can't understand how he decelerated from Mach 6 to zero between 1:00 and 1:01, just in time for the rock face.

 Trees, dirt mounds and rocks are starting to take their revenge on mankind.
(on a side note: that tree at 1:24 is a damn booby trap)

 Thought that last fellow was going to ride it out... but then that wouldn’t have been a fail.

 The principle of "the bike ( or car, etc.) goes where you look" at 1:08 was well demo'ed.

 That kid at 1:15 was brutal as hell! And the guy hung up in the trees was epic! True fails.
