 Did the same 'are you ok?' guy film several of these!? Big Grin
  • 41 2
 Why do people always ask 'are you ok?' within about 0.5 seconds of the crash?? At that point in time no-one is ok!!
  • 10 0
 definitely get off your bike and walk if that guy has a camera!

 Better than that cackling guy. *shivers*

 There should be a counter starting from friday fails #1giving us a number on how often “Are you ok?” has been said. Plus: “Kurva!”
  • 14 0
 What the rider hears: "Are you OK?
What is actually said: "Are you okay if I upload this to YouTube?"
  • 2 0
 Yes! That was the one I was coming to comment on. Goes from fast to zero and before the dust is even settled starts asking if he is okay. Give him a minute.

 Should just piece together all of the "you ok's" in one vid

 The first fail matched the intro of the intro!!

 @Paco77: Thats why I always just say "BRUTAL!!!!!" or "SAVAGE!!!"
  • 5 0
 The one where his buddy piled up into a boulder field actually elicited an out loud "no!" from me. Dude looked like he was hurting, ouch.
  • 4 0
 @Paco77: seriously right? i mean, does the guy LOOK ok? how about holding your tongue for at least a count of 10 before the most stupid question in the world.
  • 1 0
 @Paco77: This question is almost answered every Friday

 RIP 2:00. He is not OK.
  • 27 0
 I was just gonna say, that wreck into the rocks at 2:02 is brutal.

 And, OK'dness takes at least a full second to evaluate.

 For some reason, after going OTB (on a Friday no less) and dealing with a concussion these aren't as funny, I felt his pain and sincerely hope he doesn't have the same issue
  • 4 0
 @adamszymkowicz: He is lucky he went in between them for sure that could have been much worse. I saw the best rider I know clip a pedal and cartwheeled through the air at 25mph right in between pine trees to land in soft duff. So lucky

 i was gonna ride after work today but after watching that I'm not so sure

 @newbermuda: Friday fails rule: never watch before riding. Always after.
And not immediately before sleeping Big Grin
  • 2 1
 He's fine.
  • 2 0
 Yeah, I feel for that guy. Would love an update.
  • 2 0
 @newbermuda: never watch fails until after the ride. The older you get the more important that becomes.
  • 1 0
 Was so bad he deserved both those "you ok's?"

 @mtnsnap: a few more concussions and it’ll be funny again

 This one hurt to watch. If ever there was question about wearing a full-face, here's your answer.
  • 29 0
 I don't think he is okay.
  • 4 0
 If you need to ask a second time they are NOT ok....
  • 24 0
 That overshoot at 2:15 was crazy. I feel like that dude was trying to copy Bas from Wild West.
  • 47 0
 @Marcelo666: yeah, Bas from wild Tom

 Basically how I snapped my clavicle last winter. Hardest I’ve ever met the ground in my life. Since then I’m a changed rider. Can’t seem to get past it yet.

 last week it was not enough speed, today it is too much speed...

 @swellhunter: It's a struggle, but it's also a kind of spiritual quest to get over trauma of all kinds. Take your time and work your way back up! Having fun riding is what gets you over anxiety about riding.

 58 sec was either the most sincere "are you okay" ever or the most condescending, I can't really tell.

 That bike also looked 2 sizes too small for the guy.

 man meeting rock at 2:05 made me cringe for the rest of the episode
  • 3 0
 Yeah, that one gave my sympathetic pain all down my back.
  • 2 0
 That one was especially painful, reminding me of my face-first impact 3 weeks back which broke my jaw, left me with a face looking like I got worked over with a baseball bat, and a few torn ligaments in my wrist. Passed so many people on the trail asking me if I was OK. A few honest people said "you don't look OK". I'll never ride without a full-face helmet again!

 I had the most entertaining crash of my life last night, but sadly it wasn't caught on camera. Was riding a slick-rock section next to a shallow stream that I've only ever cleaned once or twice. This time, I got really close but got stopped by a rock right near the end. At this point, I'm balanced on a sloping rock on the creek bank with the stream about 2 feet down to my right. Determined to clean it, I tried to brute-force forward motion, but this threw my balance off. I went to put my right foot down, only to discover there was nothing there but air. Me and the bike leaned over until I was sailing through the air toward the water. I literally did a belly flop into the creek. Full immersion. I got water up my nose, and in one ear. Thankfully, the water is about a foot deep there, so the only damage was my left knee which must have found a submerged rock. Nobody saw it, though I did get some odd looks when I passed a group of riders on the way back. I probably looked like I'd been sprayed with a hose. Jersey, shorts, gloves and pack were all dripping water. Really sorry it wasn't filmed. You all would have enjoyed it.

 Not filming this masterpiece makes it the biggest fail of them all! Wink
  • 15 0
 Are you sure the "are you okay" camera guy did not film it....He's everywhere!
  • 13 0
 Wow! 3:00 mark is probably the gnarliest wreck I've seen! He got like 3ft that time!
  • 4 0
 That is my favorite of recent memory. So much trust, so little rider input.

 @3:31..you can tell the front is diving in the first two compressions. If you're on a jump line and something feels off DO NOT go even bigger. The consequences only get worse.

 I'm waiting for the day someone named Annie crashes on her mtb and the camera person says "Annie, are you ok? Are you ok Annie?" #smoothcriminal
  • 5 2
 I would love for there to be "Friday Saves" motivating me to go out there and take chances on the weekends. Then on Monday at work watch "Monday Fails" and laugh and cringe at all the fails while recovering from my own failures in a brace.

What do you say Pinkbike? Is "Friday Saves" and "Monday Fails" possible?

 Friday fails is the reason I never let my buddies film me

 Anyone notice the guy at 0:36 actual knew how to pump and then we was even able to make adjustments in the air, despite then falling and rolling nicely out of it? So nice to see someone who crashed but actual has some business riding jumps!

 Go Kyle!
  • 2 0
 No, wait. Come back Kyle! Nevermind Kyle.
  • 1 0
 Ha, ha, Kyle may have gone around that big jump if not urged on by his friends. That's how many of these amateur "Friday fails" riders probably end up trying way more than they are capable of. Makes for great videos though...

 I hope yelling “Friday Fails” in crash vids becomes as commonplace as the ole “WORLD STAR” in fight videos.

 I’ve crashed at that exact spot for the one at :48. You can get crazy sure into a section so dry and blown out, it’s really easy to blow the flat corner at the end. I slid right into those two trees you see just before they go down. Luckily jumped off the bike so it hit the trees and I landed in the loose rock at the bottom.

 How many types of crash are there, I am thinking 6. Over the bars, looping out, sliding out, high side, the buck (landing hard to flat), stoppie (hitting an object hard with a pedal). This list excludes landing on head whilst doing triples, or letting go of the bike on a 50ft gap drop.

 Nice carpentry in that first one....

 Funny how the first one is identical to the opening animation.
  • 4 0
 What ? How the guy doesn't fall into the gap , but flies down the landing, or that the bike doesn't explode ?

 last one. the absolute epitome of “nah didn’t hurt at all”

 2:10 Friday bails! Pretty impressive

 3:30 is a must watch with sound on!!

 Apparently riding a possessed bike! Sounded like he didn't have any control over it and was forced to hit the second jump against his will!
  • 2 0
 What was even going on there? Hit the last jump after being so ridiculously bucked on the past two... it's like he tried hitting them sitting down or something.
  • 1 0
 Someone told him his brakes were voice activated...pull the levers dude, don’t just yell “no no no”
  • 1 0
 @Uberbob102000: I still can't really figure out what happened there. Even after getting squirrely on the two sets of roller before the bigger jump I can't figure out how he went straight to face plant over the bars. That jump has a pretty big and steep takeoff.

 I see a lot of comments here that trees hate mountain bikers and nobody really disagrees. Just know that jumps hate us too, but we all ignore it because they're fun.

 Love people calling out "Friday Fails" on the videos.

 Plot twist of the week at about 1:51--I was waiting to see the guy wreck on the jump but then he never made it that far. I didn't see that coming, and I doubt he did, either.

 @3:00 - I think these are some of my favorite crashes. Tiny flat jumps... you can always tell due to how stiff the riders approach. LOL!

 Dang it, I'm getting angry at the ones who eat it doing stuff I think I could do. Wait, does that just mean I'm a dick? It does, huh? :-(

 The pre-impact groan and actual impact grunt of the first clip were very satisfying. Although i hope they weren't hurt.

 But WHY many riders don't wear spine protections (someone also without knee pads...) ???
Oh, perhaps it's cause someone can ask "are you ok?" ????????????

 You know it’s getting bad when the rider calls out “Friday fails” right before crashing!

 thinking your friend's bike is lighter than yours picking it up moments after the crash is better then to ask ARE YOU OK ?
