 PB please let us know when the kid at 2:15 has managed to stop, pretty sure they are still in the air...hope they are ok but man did I laugh. I guess dad should have spotted on the high side.

 Let's all just have a moment of silence for mom when they show her the video. And a prayer for dad when she sees it.

 Dad: "You can do it."

Child : "ah ah ah". Crash!!!

Dad: "Oh My God!" Please don't tell your mom. Please don't tell your mom!

 I think a whole sub genre of Father's Friday Fails would be great. Being childless but having lots of friends with kids I'll do my part: hold the camera and shout "you got this!".

 I've watched all 176 of these and I believe this is the most brutal episode. RIP to a lot of featured riders

 Time to stop? Clearly the kid at 2:10 has just won Friday Fails? Wonder where he landed...

[is that enough speed? surely that's not enough speed? no that was not enough speed]

 Name checks out. LOL

 And yet the dude at 0:50 comes in and says:
"Not only do I not have enough speed? I'll show you no speed and I'm gonna use my face as a hammer"

 That guy had no clue. Coulda been paralyzed from that landing.

 @overconfident That was a self inflicted Pyle Driver. I certainly hope there was a lesson learned because that’s not something that can be repeated and walked away from

 If you don’t believe this is the greatest Friday Fails ever, GTFO!!!
  • 11 0
 the human horse sound at 1:50 was clearly the distraction causing the fall
  • 7 0
 today's themes seemed to be: (1) the common OTB / weak upper-body landing and (2) the "Secondary is much worse than the Primary", ex: fighting the bad landing and running into a tree, frist rider crashes causing the next to crash much worse, botching a tricky section launches you head first into a big drop, etc.

Luckily it looks like a lot of people walked away from some nasty looking crashes.

 @plyawn

I would also like to add one more theme: Some of the crashes could have been prevented if the riders were using clip less pedal instead of flats...

 How did he just get up from that? Something sounded very broken!

 Dude on 0:40 clearly wasn't the fastest guy in the video but he had the most horrifying crash.

 I had to close my eyes. Luckily Wall Ride Launch Kid lightened the mood.

 Love his friends gasp upon the nose dive. I would have gasped when I saw his entry speed (or lack of). How does someone hitting a drop, with this very nice and long landing, decide this amount of speed is right?
  • 2 0
 I'm yelling at the screen "You're going to slow!!!", watch him rag-doll off the end into a puddle while friend gasps. Painful.

 Ya that guy had no business even thinking about hitting that one.

 Not sure if Kenda Tires are the best sponsor for Friday Fails. Traction can’t fix stupid.

 Some heavy crashes this week, and you can see the split second where things start to go pear shaped for them. What was with the guy at :36, if I can't win I'm going to throw my bike at you. And that sketchy shack at the 3:00 mark, is that where they drag the bodies back after they have sprung their bike trap?

 0:39 lowest speed / drop height ratio ever

 I wonder how many of these riders(or crashers) have been in Friday Fails before? Some of them seem like there’s a good chance they could even brag about it
Like “oh yah well I’ve been in more Friday Fails than you bro “
You know,
Like a professional

 The Head trauma in some of these crashes have me conflicted about laughing. Some are absolutely NOT funny.
  • 1 0
 Something snaps at 0:27, maybe just a tire but sounded worse. Guy at the end doesn't know what overgrown is, that was a fairly clear trail. Agree with the assessment that this was brutal.
  • 1 0
 I can't remember a 'Friday Fails' with more carnage than this!! It's like everyone made an extra effort, left the house determined to go that 'extra mile' - certainly in the case of the unfortunate kid! Smile ) Crazy

 From my understanding its basicly the same place. There is still a water park at Mountain Creek.
