 What a spooky episode! A ghost threw a crank arm at a guy for crashing, a tree came out of nowhere for the guy at :45, and a bunch of other people thought they were ghosts and could go through trees.

 I wooden be lying if I deduced that the root of the problem seems to be TREES, that's fir sure. You can bet you're ash that most of the riders will be oa-k, but I be-leave that some will have larch abrasions, and will beech about them for days.

 That stray crank arm is pure comedy

 I think he started to crash occurred long before the jump, when he came out of the berm too high and attempted to regain balance (but didn't slow) for the next 5 seconds before the tree said enough was enough. Looked pretty painful

 Other than a broken L wrist, I'm not sure either.

 Had it always been there, or has Pinkbike started letting companies pay to say they presented FF,? Because in my mind the only people who should be able to make money off their pain and suffering is the poor f@@lets themselves.

 I blew my up my AC a few months ago riding DH, and it still hurts every time I watch these. Friday Fails, lining doctors pockets since 1998.

 As much as I wouldn't let the riders here determine how trails are built, building a tree into the exit of a berm is bad trail building.
  • 1 0
 ya that's what I thought too, but before we cut away I noticed if the rider simply stayed on the line and in the berm there would have been a different outcome . That tree isn't in the trail.
