 With the covid bike boom, I think we are all moving up a percentile in relative skill.

 Yeah, real funny until the trails start getting built to their level.

 I agree, some of them look not too bad until the "landing"... Again Pinkbike does not fail on Friday's.

 @Adamrideshisbike: Yeah most new trails are built around electronic motors bikes now... wide uphills, non technical descents or no drops. New trails are built like steel rollercoasters, boring.
  • 13 1
 @DroppingThreeTwoOne: Yeah, that process is well underway. Try building a corner nowadays without a berm or leaving a section off-camber. People don't know what to do.

 @Adamrideshisbike: Agreed. These days some of the best corners are found on XC trail descents because they only used a saw to get rid of the branches and a rake to get rid of the leaves/needles.

 @iamamodel: Rake and Ride. Our new local "flow" trail is claiming more victims than all the old school trails, combined.

 For some reason, this is the only website where I constantly have problems viewing the video content. Pinkbike, do you reformat the video content that comes in and then send out? Trying to figure out what’s going on

 @cfox109: and then buying S-Works!

 @DroppingThreeTwoOne: Not around here (WA), plenty of raw tech to be found. You actually need to go looking for flow (unless you're in bellingham or at duthie).

 @DroppingThreeTwoOne: you haven’t seen a lot, right? Your statement is based on anecdotal evidence - besides, there are quite a few riders with eBikes out there that like it technically difficult and can ride it.
And a lot of clips on Friday Fails show that there are plenty of, say, no-so-skilled riders on bio bikes.

 Jesus man, let the person finishing crashing before asking them if they’re ok.

 Exactly.

 Hey at least they don’t laugh while saying it.
  • 53 0
 That scream at :42 is so primal
  • 15 1
 The "I GIVE UP" scream before the crash even begins. The perfect recipe for disaster.

 Had to watch that part like 10 times. ha!

 No Carl, no that was not "epic".
  • 10 0
 It was sad, really.

 The definition of epic varies from person to person.
  • 1 0
 such a contrast with the guy before him
  • 2 1
 Yep, definitely not epic, certainly not in a good way, nor was it an epic crash. Just a sad pathetic crash. Sorry Carl, try again.

 A week for screamers. None of the screams as scary as that brake squeak before the large drop.

 Exactly!

 Hit the nail on the head right there.

 My bike was completely fine surprisingly enough, just had to switch grips :p

 @AlexTokmakoff: I hope you were as lucky as the bike. Always nice to hear from the good folks that make FF happen.

 @bikeybikeybikebike: yes indeed I’m all good! I hadn’t ridden much park up to that point so crashes are bound to happen

 @AlexTokmakof new grips really helped to sell the bike after the crash

 The decision to do a no hander as the guy you are training in bins it was, shall we say, sub-optimal.

 That space x superheavy guy... rocket!

 They set him up to fail, no dropper?!!?

 Stay on target Red Five...

 I noticed a trend of people with moto fenders going otb this week.

 I think a more appropriate name is poop deflector. And not from the trail...

 :41 - I kept looking for the pterodactyl!

 I can usually feel the rider is incompetent even before they crash. Just by how they are so unbalanced on the bike, POV or otherwise. Really sad how poor people's judgement is whem attempting features they're clearly not ready for.
  • 10 0
 You need no "feel" to know that 80% of Friday Failers are incompetent.
  • 8 0
 How to determine your best mates? They laugh instead of asking if you are ok.

 .55 is a big guy to be sending jumps.... Respect

 3.59 Dude got his "woohoo" and "oh my god" mixed up.

 Hypothesis: No one with one of those big fan-tail fenders has *ever* successfully hit a jump, regardless of its size.

 Friday fails: Yu okay? Edition
  • 1 0
 I was thinking that too. It would be nice to hear "get up you idiot, you're blocking the trail!"
  • 3 0
 Been saying this for a while - They need a week where every video is followed by "You OK". And then a week where every video is followed by "Oh Shit!" This week there was one that had "Shit, you OK"!

 :42 - Friday Fail rule #6.9 - It's always best to scream like you're being murdered to guarantee a faceplant shortly thereafter.

 And in this week's video, you can see multiple cases of the people who help dentists earn those shiny new bikes!

 3:54 There's been several people helicoptered out of that trail this year

 Trail doesn't look that bad/difficult at all. Too many noobs trying to ride above their skillset?
  • 4 0
 kids building bmx lips on a green flow trail + new, affluent middle-aged weekend warriors on fancy new FS rigs = lots of carnage.

Those jumps are super fun if you know how to ride them. Definitely have gotten bucked a little nose heavy the first time hitting them, though.
  • 3 0
 @bman33: Exactly. The trail is a super easy green called Waterworks that the local kids build BMX jumps on then unskilled people try to hit them on their FS bikes they just bought.

The jumps are pretty fun though.
  • 1 0
 @erikvehmeyer: Those jumps seem to change from week to week with a constant game of cat and mouse between builders and rangers. Sometimes they look the same as the last time you hit them but the transition is way tighter. It's funny recognizing a local trail in the Friday Fails. Hard to believe anyone's been helicoptered out of that trail. That's where I take my 6 year old.

 :25 and :28 ... two confusing clips in a row... how do you invert gravity that quickly, and why grab a fistful of brakes on the mellow straight landing like that? lol
  • 1 0
 Came hear after watching the clips of all the PB Groms shredding... definitely feeling a little better about my riding now...
  • 2 0
 Apparently rear fenders are in, as is grabbing a handful of brake heading into a jump.

 3:55 LOOK AT THE WHIP!!!

 First crash raised a question; did both the rider and cameraman "crash" simultaneously?
I also have a question for the editors of FF to mull over ; would it be possible to have a cold bar, like red, or blue, to appear before each subsequent fail, to indicate to us viewers whether the upcoming vid clip showed a fail that resulted in serious injury, or not.?
I think that would be helpful to viewers, on many different levels. Educashunalwise that is.....

 First fail; did both rider and cameraman "crash" simultaneously? It kinda looked like that.

 people, wait until the body comes to a complete stop before asking someone "you okay?"

 1:43 perfect example why moving forward at a moment of jump is so important. It took years to learn!

 You Okay has got to be the most used after crash exclamation ever...or maybe JAJAJAJA!?

 The brake squeal at 0:34 has to be the best signal of impending doom.
