 Flying, sending, much discussion, I will skip the sand, and get a concussion...

 Justice. Riding that "line" is just going to widen the sandy wash and make things shittier for everyone.

  • 3 0
 @chlebik: You definitely have the 'minerals'... watching it i mouthed 'he is dead' Taking the expression 'sending it' to completely new levels....
  • 4 0
 @chlebik: Fixed it? How did you even get it back? That thing fired into the next time zone!
  • 1 0
 @wingguy: oh yeah bike is fixed and sending jumps again... not this one though Big Grin it was funny actually, bike ended up like 20m further Big Grin
  • 2 0
 @chlebik: I still maintain the fact you're alive is 'fake news'. Thanks for commenting on here though, actually nice to see a crash this brutal and know you walked away from it... you must bounce like a f$#%ing ball!
  • 1 0

 none of these even come close to being the biggest fail of the week. you know what i'm talking about. you know. hahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahhahahaahh
  • 7 2
 Came here to post this... lol! What a f#%king clown!
  • 5 1
 I forgot to add: It is what it is...
  • 3 0
 I don't know. What's the biggest fail of the week?
  • 21 0
 I noticed that the "factory" reflectors on most of these bikes are throwing off their balance.... Therefore resulting in most if not all of the fails.
  • 21 1
 Its because your from England, Rose does not export there anymore and they are the sponsor. We can see it fine here.

 Touche

 @fartymarty: That guy at 2:43 definitely had his brakes reversed.

 There are some rider features common to probably more than 3/4 of videos Big Grin

1. wearing running sneakers. Preferably white.
2. no knee-pads
3. wearing running shorts
4. no gloves
5. having some kind of backpack
6. having robocop style - all possbile protective equipment rampage style for 2" drop

Having as many as possible of above features will get you to Friday fails for sure... Big Grin
  • 2 3
 ...backpacks are usefull for long rides.
But you have to choose one wich is made for riding. And better avoiding big jumps wearing it Big Grin
  • 1 0
 @Grononosse: Yeah! A lot of these guys look like they just finished school and decided to hit a few jumps with a couple books.
  • 2 0
 You forgot to add: Move like Robocop, keep as stiff as possible.
  • 2 0
 I rock my backpack with pride! I am also not a great jumper...
  • 1 0
 @4thflowkage: But by that admission it sounds like you know your limits and would progress on jumps using your brain instead of going full send on the biggest feature you can find.

 3:24 damage report..omg!
  • 18 1
 That noise was Thanos snapping the headtube
  • 15 0
 I have never gasped so loudly watching a friday fails.

 @mostsleek: I thought it was his head breaking the sound barrier as his neck whiplashed.
  • 10 0
 That's the sound a bicycle makes when it dies.
  • 8 0
 That one caught me off guard for sure. But they guy who sent it 30 feet left on the entrance to Lower A-Line at 2:57, he caught me completely by surprise. For an instant, I thought he was going for some secret Remy line transfer...but NOPE!!! Beer
  • 2 0
 @LouRider: oh yeah, just like Thanos... bike died but magic fiber came alive again, carbon power!
  • 2 0
 @mostsleek: it was toptube actually, but carbon fiber is magic and rideable again
  • 1 0
 @chlebik: post a picture of that frame!
  • 1 0
 @EasterA: that early sudden stop into a tree had me feeling the same.

 Based on many Friday Fails videos, removing the front brake would highly decrease the amount of crashes!
  • 3 0
 This should be a PSA. Is it some sort of freak reaction some people have? Why do they invariably grab the front brake so hard?
  • 10 0
 Some were brutal this week.

I'd love to know whether some of these are super current. Since the lockdown I've noticed a ton of the "running shoe, road lid" crowd on the trails. On new expensive bikes (and e-bikes of course) and also Walmart bikes. Either way they are almost always in over their heads and doing kooky shit.
  • 1 0
 @Dustfarter I see a lot more Walmart bikes and no lid on the trails this year. Scary stuff.
  • 3 0
 @mtallman2: I have seen a helmetless rider with KAsHiMa more than once.
  • 11 0
 Why don’t people wear gloves?! Enjoying road rash on your hands?!
  • 3 2
 With the right setup and grips, I'd often prefer to not wear gloves. Only time I'll wear gloves are on race days, practice, park laps, or shuttle laps.
  • 1 1
 i dont wear gloves, started not wearing them because i lost every pair i bought and just got used to it
  • 11 0
 @ 3:24 is what causes your CSU to creak.
  • 1 0
 Yeah, that one was O_O
  • 6 0
 Soooooo many cases! [Insert lawyer joke here]
  • 3 0
 Another week like this one and we’ll need a new assistant to handle the caseload
  • 6 0
 3:40. Wheel reflectors are a pre-existing condition.
  • 1 1
 i was just checking to see if anyone else caught that he was doomed from the purchase
  • 5 0
 Am I going crazy or is the first video from Duluth, MN?
  • 7 0
 It is, that's my video. Taken of my buddy in Piedmont
  • 1 0
 Yep, and the clip at 1:40 is at Tioga.

 Particularly spicy week! I love fall riding because everyone is warmed up from summer and not worried about losing a whole season if they wreck hard.
  • 1 0
 LMAO! @2:53 so many weird things; 1-is that a sheep holding the camera? 2-is it a Shimano brake test? 3- like that dream where the frt. wheel gets trapped by mysterious jaws and sends you into oblivion!

For a good laugh, rapid pause/play like a scratch DJ @2:53 its sure to make you giggle!!!
  • 3 0
 Than lanual at Post Canyon (2:36) was almost sweet!
This week lots of riders' speed and body position on the ride-in were signalling exactly how they were going to crash.
  • 2 0
 Once again, pretty hard to relate to most of these crashes since I don't jump and try not to fall off my bike for no obvious reason. Still, I just can't help watching, kinda like a slow-motion train wreck!
  • 2 0
 Yeah, so many cases (heh) of obviously peer-pressured or ego-driven people who really shouldn't have sent that
  • 3 0
 Video is set to "private"!!!! Please make public.

Sincerely, Everyone on the World Wide Interwebs.

  • 1 0
 Yeah. Just here to confirm, it is indeed private.
  • 4 2
 Just when i thought i had built up enough confidence to hit a jump i have been avoiding at my local trails and pinkbike comes at me with this.
  • 3 0
 01:07 - Most evil laugh ever.

02:03 - Sand everywhere. Land in pile of rocks.
  • 3 0
 I'm always amazed at the absence of profane commentary from those crashing ... that wouldn't be my experience. lol
  • 5 2
 Presented by Rose? Wasn't this job done by Ibis once? No, wait that was a different job

 I've seen front flips onto and off-of a whale tale, but this is the first time I've seen one right in the middle of the transition...
  • 3 0
 Of all the unexplicable facts shown here, one stands tall:
why the run-in at 1:11 looks like a WW1 trench?
  • 1 0
 It never fails to surprise me, how a tree suddenly seems to appear in the landing area in these Friday Fails videos....You would think, that's the first thing to look out for?
  • 1 0
 Good god - that guy on the whale tail at 3:05 was laughing... but 2 seconds after the video cuts out, he's screaming once he realizes how many teeth he's missing along with his fractured cheekbone and sprained neck.
  • 3 0
 PB, apparently the interwebs wants to see your privates
  • 3 0
 Lots of front brake grabbing panic moves today.
  • 2 0
 One again confirming that saving my big airs for the snowboard was a wise life choice.
  • 2 0
 That whale tail crash looks like a pretty good reason to never ride one again!

 dude at 0:40 was effed from the get go.

 Really had no business trying that big of a drop.

 Adam is one of the neighborhood groms... The HOA bulldozed all the dirt jumps the kids build during the lockdown a few months ago. F'ing ridiculous. They actually built a jump park with hand tools. It was impressive. Berms, tables, doubles. But apparently frowned upon. They since built a couple of portable wooden ramps and set up in spots then take away.
  • 1 0
 @ReformedRoadie: That's pretty lame of the HOA. But, maybe a good opportunity to learn about landowner permission? Although the cul-de-suck committees probably don't like fun and logical things. Get 'em to help build some sweet stuff with that bulldozer! Sounds like someone's community needs a pumptrack and jump line.
  • 1 0
 @A-HIGHLY-EDUCATED-PROFESSIONAL: Just heard one grom had posted on the Next Door site about getting a pump track built in a local township park. Might be time to help out the yutes...
Esp because some of the assclown responses the kid got.
