 Nothing more satisfying than watching the guy with the phone mount eat it on the jump.

 last second front brake grab!

 he just hit warp speed of 18. should have kept her at around 15

 The weight of that phone will surely cause that front end to dive on jumps resulting in an OTB

 I'm surprised the phone stayed on!

 Ha ha, looked like he was grabbing some front brake just before lift off. Excellent! Too many good ones today to comment on.

 @mtbmaniatv: Wonder if he ate it Imperially or metrically, Imperially would hurt more I believe.

 I found it to be the sheeple moron wearing a mask to be the most satisfying. Although,those two goons probably from the same gene pool tho, only with different mothers .

 Reckon I’d prefer to have my friends laughing like hyenas after I took a slam rather than being in my face with “you okay, you okay?”.
  • 43 1
 I guess that in reality your preference would depend on whether, after said slam, you're okay or not.
  • 4 0
 Couple of nice Sliders in there aswell...

 The irony is it's a completely pointless question. Pretty common for people to pop right up after a crash and be "okay" only to realize over the next few minutes as the adrenaline wears off and the pain sets in that actually they're not ok.

If I recall correctly, for example, that's what happened with BCPov in his most recent crash, the one where he broke his scaphoid. OTBed, said he was ok, rode the rest of the way down the mountain and only as he was riding down did he realize something more serious was wrong.

The best thing your friends could do, I think, is laugh like hyenas but then tell you to sit down for 15 minutes or so and THEN see if you're ok before continuing the ride.
  • 1 0
 @charliewentoutside: Completely agree. Don't ask if your friends are OK, because they don't know the answer. Just tell them to take it easy, get up slowly, and check themselves and their bike before continuing.

Even if they're totally uninjured, they're likely to be high enough on adrenaline that they end up like my friend who crashed off a big drop, got up, and then crashed again 100 feet down the trail when he discovered he was riding with his handlebars backwards.

 One of the last clips, the guy bailing on the backflip on the step up, was filmed at the 63rd Street jump spot in Boulder, CO. It was a county approved dig spot for whoever could handle a shovel. Last weekend, Boulder county came in with a excavator and flattened the whole hill full of jumps. They claimed to have done it because of the drug problems in the abandoned factory next to it. 63rd was around since 2005. RIP 63rd.

 Flatten the jumps but leave the drug den factory...government at work!
  • 3 0
 Sounds like classic less-than-useless government work at its finest.
  • 1 0
 sad. i hate stuff like that
  • 12 4
 Was going to say the same thing. RIP 63rd, I think it'll be back though. I hear there's still some landings that just need shovel work, but I haven't been out to see for myself.

An acquaintance who lives by the Gunbarrel jumps has seen people out working on those since 63rd got 'dozed, maybe we'll see a migration out that way for big jumps in Boulder County. That would be cool, I remember seeing those a long time ago and they were so dialed it was scary. Massive, steep, BMX-style gap jumps.

Also, the attitude of both the government and the populace towards the homeless is atrocious, and it's much better here in CO than many other places in the US. Poor people with mental illnesses and addictions deserve empathy and help, not hatred and discrimination. I don't give a shit if you think begging is morally wrong somehow, or if they are criminals; they're still human for literal Christ's sake.

 If you watch it looks like he grabs a whollllllle bunch of front brake just as he's leaving the jump.

 Those jumps about 1km from my house. I've had my share of fails on them as well.

 Not a matter of speed. The weight of the device made him nose dive.

 One of my favourite things about Friday fails is recognizing a feature at the start of a clip (the Entrails whaleback) and knowing exactly what is about to happen.

 Every week there's at least one sea to sky fail. Love it. Can admit to having crashed my first time on the whaletail too. It's a tricky feature

 Hopefully everyone is OK, but honestly, every day is a fail when you are on a moped pretending to be a mountain biker.

 People actually wear masks while biking? LOL
  • 4 0
 People around here wear them and don't even wear helmets when road riding. Some people are only breathing because society has bubblewrapped their otherwise would-survive-10-minutes lives.

 I get the spacial respect for this pandemic, mask up etc. But it boggles my mind when I see other cyclists (Road or MTB) just wearing a mask while out riding. On my local trail systems there's always a few people that use them whilst doing their activity.
  • 4 0
 @lehott: I tried shoveling snow this winter with a mask on when my neighbor I was helping out asked me if I should be wearing a mask, not because she was concerned with the virus but because of the snow that was flying into my face. So, I decided to put an N95 mask on. I couldn't believe how sweaty it was and I could hardly breath with the efforts of moving heavy snow. So, immediately, I took it off and what a relief! The snow blowing in my face was a godsend as it actually cooled me down. So, when I see cyclists wearing a mask on a climb, I'm just thinking they probably overheating and might pass out if they keep going all the way to the top!
  • 4 0
 I wear a buff that I'll pull up over my nose and mouth if I'm passing people on a narrow trail. That's common courtesy IMO, even if the chance of transmission in that scenario is very low. I can't imagine just wearing a mask for the entire ride, though.

 Imagine progressing to the point of being able to take a not too bad intentional bail on a flip, or a flip whip only to be lumped in to a weekly fail video of a bunch of Jerrys going OTB... that must hurt almost as badly as the guy at 1:36

 One easy trick and we could solve this Friday Fail epidemic once and for all. Just repost Friday Fail #164 every single week. Then nobody has to wreck ever again.

 the one where he wiped out on the yellow wall ride, is in bentonville ar, and when its wet it is the woodstock of cuts
  • 3 0
 Rogers, AR... but yeah.

It's an "all-weather" park with great traction on all the black track... then they used a material for the wall rides that gets insanely slick with any moisture at all. Still love the place as a wet-weather option. Just avoid the wall rides when they're wet.
  • 1 0
 @Hogfly: I cracked some ribs on that one in November. I was the 3rd rider in s row to wipeout and the park attendants said..."that was the 3rd, time to put up the cones". They put cones to block it off afterward. Slippery as goose poo.

 @Hebruce: my kid just broke his wrist there today (transfer from black slope line drop in to blue. Bike slid out on black line wood jump when he carved It to transfer) exactly a year after breaking two wrists at passion play. Universe is weird.
