 @neubiker: Looks like you used some sort of curved wood support strut. Was that a prefabricated piece?
  • 8 0
 @alwaysOTB:

Nah there was a curved tree near there we actually took a chainsaw and cut it down the middle. We then used those for our supports. The front up-rights also have a small curve to them as well. We built the woodwork and roughed out the Landing. Mark Wallace and Riley came in after and did all the rockwork on the other side of the ravine to make the tranny.

 last clip is not a fail. last clip is a win.

 Man I agree, absolutely epic. Surprised to see the rear rim give up so instantaneously though.
  • 10 0
 @dglobulator: Agreed, but he's pretty lucky that it did. Way better to have the rim cave then to have all that rebound come back and chuck you over the bars.

 what in the holy Janktasticness was that bullshit at :40? I mean, a teeter to 2' huck to flat to.....nothing? what was the f*cking plan here, other than exactly what happened?
  • 4 0
 Oh, yeah if you have not ridden that spot you wouldnt get it. That teeter is called the Neck-Annihilator5000 ™. Man thankfully chickened out on the chair life.

 I ride past that thing 3x a week and always think no way am I going to snap my neck on that thing. It’s a little bit....quirky.
  • 24 3
 By 3:32 you can tell this is not going to end well. So happy the loss was just a rear wheel.... (shutter) Props for riding it out.
  • 11 1
 Except... he doesn't ride it out. You can clearly see him slam the ground at 3:42.
  • 7 2
 @alexridesbikes-13: Fair. So what I mean is, he stayed on the bike across the jump and rode it as long as he could, instead of bailing out mid-air when he probably realized the jump was not going well.

 From now on the word for Fridays is "Curvă"
  • 6 1
 No kurwa this time. But to be honest, there was one chuj /hʊj/ Wink
  • 9 0
 @lkubica: There's a kurwa hidden there at 3:18 right after the "o chuj", all's good in the world Smile
  • 2 0
 I would say from the amount of Kurwa's in the recent fails, those polish guys have some pretty sick trails.
  • 3 0
 @LucaP: We are simply quite careless or ballsy depending how you look at it. Not sure if it's genetic or a matter of being a little less civilized than the western nations.

 @bananowy: Well spotted.

 Friday Kurwa's? Wink

 I want follow up interviews with about half of these. One question, "How did you think that would have gone and why?"

 Biggest fail is no shirt guy
  • 5 0
 Must be impostors at 2:22, there was no "kurwa" (they actually asked if he was OK, outrageous!). Thankfully 3:18 made up for it with a nice touch of "o chuj". Faith in fellow Poles restored.

 friday fails makes it look like i'm paying attention in morning zoom meetings

i'm always amazed when riders blow up on contact like at 2:58 - do they land with a fistfuls of brake? what is that noise? honestly it seems like a skill
  • 2 0
 I think the dude needed to set up high to the outside and then take it straight, looks like he just hit all those roots in the middle of his turn, as for the noise...who the hell knows haha
  • 1 0
 He landed on the root and it tried to rip the tire off the bead, instant wash out.
  • 2 0
 I must say, the camera work at 0:10 was excellent. Good panning, no mad panic shaking and no reaction noise, just the raw sounds of impact then tumbling bike and body.

Something every Friday fails camera person should aspire to.

 for all you jump enthusiasts out there - is there anything you can do to adjust midair if you're rotating forward or back? most of the jumps on my local trails are fairly small (say 10-15' max) and you don't usually get so out of shape in the air
  • 3 0
 If you’re too far back, hitting the rear brake can bring your front end down. If you’re too far forward, you’re pretty much out of luck. But really, if a jump is built properly and you deveop proper technique, it’s a non-issue. I can’t remember the last time I hit a jump and got pitched forward or back.
  • 1 0
 @BiNARYBiKE: that is good to know. probably the jumps I am hitting are well built because I have never received any instruction for jumping and I am not having a problem keeping the bike level in the air. Thanks for the tip
  • 3 0
 Most important thing is the stay mobile and active on the bike. Don't lock up or "dead sailor". Sorry if this is beginner advise if you're not a beginner. Watch a dirt jumper, they often put a little whip that's more for getting in the right body position than it is for style. Taking off in a balance position is key. If you're too far forward, in the air push the bike in front of you and stick your ass back and down, that's the best ride out of it. If you go way too far forward and will go over the bars on landing, then bail and try to baseball slide out (the feet first type of baseball slide).

 On a Moto, a twist of throttle can bring the front up. Never got anything where there's enough time on MTB - anyone know if it's possible with just leg power rather than Honda power?
  • 2 0
 @mountainsofsussex: That's why I said you're out of luck if you're going front heavy, good luck pedaling in mid air fast enough to generate the momentum to bring up the front end!
  • 1 0
 @kcy4130: that’s what I learned this year at the park. Stay loose in the air and you can move the bike wherever you want, pushing against the stability of a spinning wheel can help you recover from balance issues and whipping the tail out becomes the more comfortable and stable thing to do rather than staying stiff and still.

 @BiNARYBiKE: TSN Turning Point = "and you develop proper technique"...

I can assure you without this mystery puzzle piece I can crash anything you put in front of me.
  • 1 0
 The biggest tip is compressing into the lip and then being fully extended BEFORE you leave the lip. Every one of these OTBs you see compressed all the way through and then they stand up as the rear tire leaves the lip, which will kick you OTB 100% of the time. (you see it perfectly at 0:45)

Also, stay loose... I like to think about loosening my shoulders quite a bit right before I hit jumps. Push through with your feet and keep your shoulders and arms loose.
