 Such amazing use of slo-mo.

 @shrockie saw your comment while watching the video...thought...there are lots of backflip fails, which one could he mean......but then I saw the ending. *chef's kiss* ...just fantastic

 Yeah, the last fail usually is a bit so so. That was one of the best ever and also one of the best slo-mo's ever. It would be cool if there was some way to know which segment of a given friday fail had the most rewatches.

 I normally hate slow mo but that was amazing

 We deserve slo-mo back flip launch as part of the field test! Enough with these silly impossible climbs and hucks to flat - give us the information we truly need to make an informed purchasing decision.

 still trying to figure out how he flipped forward if his weight was shifting backwards for a flip....was it the lip of the jump or did he "taint brake" the rear wheel? I'm thinking the latter, which makes this all the more special

 slow mo adds cherry on top!
  • 2 0
 @SATN-XC: Yeah...butt stomped the rear wheel.

Do yourselves a favor & pause it at 3:51 & then again at 3:53.

I've made a suggestion to the trail crew to use that screen grab as a Black/Yellow Road sign style trail sign.

If I had any photoshop skills, I'd make them a t-shirt.

 Giving all the momentum to his body and 0 to the bike, that's a feat !

 @SATN-XC: Yup. Wheel bite. You see it here and there on here, but not with the cinematic quality.

It’s beautiful.

 @SATN-XC: Yeah.. what the hell. First rule of hitting a lip: DO NOT... I REPEAT, DO NOT PULL ON THE BARS!!

 @teo7z: It's really difficult to

 @teo7z: ... oops. Ejected myself halfway through my comment.

Was trying to say it's really difficult to do a backflip without pulling on the bars.

 @Linkpin: comment fail Wink

 Looked like he was trying to NASCAR through the pileup.
  • 1 0
 @Linkpin: Yep I agree, you have to tug on the bars... once you get your lift from the lip. His timing absolutely sucked.. and that's what makes Friday fails so much fun.

 The Muttley sn*gger at 3.26 is priceless tho got a feeling the rider/filmer relationship might've been slightly strained afterwards
  • 5 0
 Muttley! Love that ref!

 @0:33 looks like Michael Bay choreographed a bike crash.
  • 2 0
 How can the guy think it’s a good idea to go fast on a bike when he has no ability AT ALL to avoid crashed people in front of him (keeping sufficient distance alternatively)

 Nowhere near enough Megan Cox half getting her arse out though... Send in more bikes!

 2:50–55 ha! Tell me you haven't been that dude once or twice in your life. Def relatable!
  • 4 0
 ...yup, and its slightly more terrifying when you are also clipped in
  • 2 0
 @owlsmyles Absolutely! Thought it was definitely the best until that last clip witch, I think we can all agree, is of a different magnitude altogether! As usual, hats off to all involved

 Oh yeah, lately on trail rides I am crashing more going up than going down.
  • 11 0
 0:33 is the best one
  • 3 1
 0:33 might be the viewers choice, but IMO that rider could have easily gone around the riders down.
Kinda stoopid .
  • 3 0
 @RayDolor: that's part of why it's funny
  • 1 0
 @danielfloyd: Yes, it IS funny! It almost looks like a deliberate stunt or something.
Quite entertaining, in a Three Stooges way!
  • 1 0
 @RayDolor: Really? No way in hell given his speed and body positioning that he's going to make it to the outside of that corner.

 My guy trying to backflip the tape gap at Beech is one of the best of the year
  • 1 0
 I thought that was Beech! What’s that monstrosity of a lift in the background?
  • 2 0
 @everythingsucks: It right as you drop out of what used to be the AM DH course where the left hander sort of flat hip is popping out onto the slope then dropping into the final berms.

It's called Hellbender now. Right under the lift.

 Thank you! (takes bow)

 @ahoose1: Haha you got it next time man. I've done many suis over that tape but I imagine pulling for a backie is more like off a flat drop than a kicker
