 How about that masterful camera work Wink
Landscape mode and I didn't drop the camera and should "are you okay!?" before you hit the ground. I'm a little proud of that lol

 Hey Nick, I couldn't find any instructions on how to submit a video for Friday Fail consideration. I have a couple of good candidates =). Can you let me know how you uploaded the videos, to where, and what you titled it? Couldn't find any steps anywhere on PB.

 Congrats! That could have been worst!

 @wally16545: Upload it in your account as "short clips/crashes". I tagged it as #FridayFails just to be safe, but I don't know if that's necessary. I uploaded this back in October though, so there might be some delay.

 @hqrsie: A good fail is like a Hollywood blockbuster: sure we see the stars in front of the camera but there's many more people behind the scenes. Enjoy your Failcademy Award for outstanding achievement in cinematography!

 In the back of my mind watching these all I can hear is random orc saying to Saurumon "the trees are strong my Lord, the roots go deep"

 @ODubhslaine: Wrong tower my dude.

*pushes up glasses*

Isengard, where Saruman lived for the events of the Two Towers, borders the ancient Fangorn forest, last stronghold of the ents.

Sauron was in Mordor in a different area.

Pushes up horn rim glasses with tape holding it together in the middle.

In the book, Saruman lives to the very end and his death is nearly the last scene...

 I cannot like this comment enough Smile

 Wouldn't be Friday Fails without at least one "kurwa"
  • 3 0
 Kurva I expect. The pierdolony was a sweet bonus this week. Wish we had a Polish language only Friday Fails. Or maybe dub the fails in Polish!!
  • 3 0
 Yess we need KURWAA every Friday

 That first body splash into the tree! Don't get me wrong, i 100% respect having a go. But you got to start with smaller and more pliable trees.
  • 33 1
 Nah I was aiming for the big one behind actually.
  • 12 1
 @nickman69: Fair play. You should tag TLD in it or something. Maybe they can do you a custom Rey Mysterio helmet. Perhaps one with a softer peak that wont cut your feet off at the shins as you taco-fold around the next tree.

I can't do the emojis on here so i'll just say 'smiley face' so you know i mean that in a good-natured manner.
  • 4 0
 @DidNotSendIt: Bahahaha not a bad idea and I would totally rock a new helmet. I'm actually wearing a "hardhat" which doesn't follow the same regulations as a helmet in the video.

This was all Covid's fault. If my BJJ gym hadn't shutdown I wouldn't have been riding my bike. uh-oh did I just say that Frown

 @nickman69: Dude that came out of nowhere, first Friday fail of 2021 and what a banger Wink Hope you were fine though, slammed so hard I was like "yep, he ded".
  • 16 1
 @bananowy: Thankfully I am fully healed. I'm biking tonight actually!! the result was a compression of my T11 ( I lost 25% of it. I think I lost a little bit of others as well as I shrunk 3/4 of an inch after the crash for some odd reason. Also messed up ligament's in my shoulder. Not my first but definitely my worst slam. I'm heading back up in the spring to conquer. It's actually a pretty small drop...

 Guy at 3:09 being spat out from the forrest wondering where the heck his bike is. So am I Smile

 The slo mo heading into the cactus is terrifying.
  • 21 0
 So - 2:55, 3:06 & 3:20 - all the same guy, right? Tough day out for sure!!
  • 8 0
 I thought so too. At least the same grunting when they hit the dirt.
  • 6 0
 I wonder if he has any AC joint left to tear
  • 2 0
 Could be, did you notice the turd at 3:08ish, and then the guy makes spitting sounds. Could of been a worse day then we even realize.
  • 16 0
 How did the guy at 2:06 lose his front wheel!?

Also the open sequence has to win the Oscar for most creative and fitting the most ways to crash into a single event.

 Almost looked staged.

 He slammed and ripped that old 9mm QR setup right out of there.

 I have to say, watching beginners stack can be cringe-inducing, but nothing is worse than watching someone who legit knows what they're doing blow up while fully committed.

 My expectations have now been set. We need at least one video a week ending with a "kurwa!"
  • 9 0
 Not only this, the word "pierdolony" was also a nice touch Wink literally means f*cked.
  • 4 0
 I swear to god, most FFs must include at least one Big Grin


I still have my favourite though. Don't think I'll be able to find it now in past FFs, but it was with a guy's bike breaking in half on a small double and the cameraman pauses for 2 seconds before a very emotional O KURWA when the rider is already in the dirt. I think it was that pause that made me piss myself.

 Several of these I wouldn't even call fails.. I'd say they were pretty good saves. For instance, take the kid doing the drop that saved himself from going down by clinging to the rear tire with his b@llsack!
  • 7 0
 His b@llsack disagrees.

And the classic slow drop-off nosedive...
  • 2 0
 he thought the laws of gravity did not apply that day.

 The 0.2mph approach to a 4 ft drop is pretty much a guaranteed viral moment.
  • 9 0
 The commitment to roll off the drop at a snails pace is just amazing.

 3:49 - 1997 called, it wants its bars back.

 as a guy who is working on his air game slowly and gets intimidated by jumping, these videos do not instill a lot of confidence!
  • 2 0
 Tables are great because you can send them to flat a few times to build up confidence. Gap jumps are scary. A few of them this week were hard to watch.

 A little calculated caution will go along way to not staying hurt all the time to. Work up slow and dont make the newb fail clip. Not being a hero wont stop you from having fun IMO.
  • 2 0
 @cougar797: also, as an old guy, stay young. I'm hurt all the time; kids have serious bails that put them out for max 48 hours. Not yet sure how to follow my own advice.

 @plyawn: I keep telling older friends that I hope I never get that old, and am generally told that the alternative isn't any better.

 Too many repeat fails from previous episodes here. D for effort PB.

 2021. Riders of the world, caught totally off guard by the new manufacturers standard of the 75 lb. front wheel. There is no other explanation, well this, and the magnetic trees.

 Man. Some serious slams this week. I hope their concussion recoveries are going well...

 What's the Euro to the rest of the world ratio here? It seems like they are much more ballsy than the rest of us.

 Props to the Redding, CA guys for building that trail gap on Enticer at 4:00! Easily of the best trails in California.
And go for it again guy! You got it!

 What an opening! And that wall ride to fakey gets two thumbs up. Classic move.

 Was a great opener, like that tree was John Cena or something. But I think this is the second FF of 21.

 People, max out your rebound on the shock if you are just learning to jump. It will greatly help with not going OTB.
  • 3 0
 if by "maxing out" you actually mean slow it all the way down, then I agree
  • 9 0
 Exactly. You want full rabbit. Stay seated at all times too.

 @gafoto: and lift your feet up from the pedals of course

 Shock returning to extension isn’t what is bucking these people, or anyone. It’s all about compression spikes/bottom outs/having no clue/skill

 yeah, I'm kind of on the fence about seeing a spot I ride featured on here, especially since that area has seen recent trail closures and features removed by the land manager for "safety reasons".
