 "That's one way to end it" - definitely should've been the final clip this week.

It was about time to even-up the score against tree..

 would have been funny but having the camera detach and flip down the hill was perfect

 Paul Bunyan at 3:45 legit takes out that tree - and it's not small. Mad respect

 for a man that just used his body as an ax on multiple trees...he seemed to be in a good mood

 The handlebar in the back would be a clear and painful memory of what not to do when your buddy is following you closely and hitting all the features.

 Lol. Buddy was a little late on the warning.
  • 4 0
 @lone-ranger: serious question: who was in the wrong there?
And that warning was better late than never. He could have been on the stretcher when he yelled it instead!

 @mikkyberg: I think the trail continued to the left past the drop but the rider infront turned down into the landing of the drop.
  • 24 1
 @mikkyberg: I would say the trail builder. That's a terrible design.
  • 12 3
 Checked-shirt guy clearly slowed down heaps in order to make a right-angled turn onto the landing. This indicates to me that it isn't the normal flow of the trail. Also, Go-Pro guy could already see he was going to converge but didn't change his speed because he expected checked-shirt guy to go maintain his straight path and not cause an accident. Checked-shirt guy in the wrong IMHO.

 @iamamodel: nah, I've ridden there a bunch. Just bad trail design

 OMG that drop to faceplant and 1:02. HOW CAN YOU BE THAT DUMB??? This was a serious drop, I get rookies trying to drop from 0.5m and fail, but this?
  • 1 0
 thought he may have caught the rear wheel....nope.

 Suicide Attempt!

 I think its because he came in too slow, had to pedal which made him uncomposed and miss his timing.

 Glad to see FF because most of the content in the last few weeks has been disappointing. I haven’t clicked through on much at all in the last few months. Team updates about people I’ve never heard about? Pass. Reposting press releases isn’t what has made me a faithful PB reader all these years. And where have all the podcasts gone?
Incognito Robin, you burning out the PB staff already?

 dude it's the middle of january. Not much going on.

 eh...its the weeks immediately following the holidays. Unless they were shooting/editing over the holidays, I wouldn't expect much during this time. This is basically the time for year end highlight reels (copying/pasting stuff that's already been posted through the year).

 @notoutsideceo: you are invaluable to this whole operation. Don’t ever quit.
  • 10 1
 @Rageingdh: Appreciate the kind words - I'll reserve a Be Safe Be Well jersey for you my friend!

Be safe be well,

 @notoutsideceo: that would be an amazing piece of kit. I normally wear an XL but I think a snug fitting L would look much better when I’m riding my gravel bike on the paved pathways around my house.

 Best FF in some time.
Dog said it best at 3:05
“Rough, rough, rough…”

 Holy crap that wreck at 1:39 was nasty.

 Those jumps arent called Zzzz's for nothin, haha

 Yeah, that was maximum huck-a-buck!

 But hey.... He almost unintentionally pulled off a front flip. lol
  • 2 0
 Agree, I came here to post about it. How does he manage to over-rotate so much? How did this go so wrong?
  • 1 0
 Don't worry, he'll be back at it
  • 1 0
 Anyone know of his injuries? He looked stiff as a board hitting that jump.

 It appears that over 90% of fails occur when the rider leaves the ground. "I was just riding along" is actually "I thought I was a bird and quickly realized I wasn't"
  • 3 0
 I think a lot of filming happens when riders leave the ground as well.

 1:11 was recycled, i've seen that before

 a fail so nice, they showed it twice
  • 4 0
 1:32 was a repeat as well.
  • 1 0
 1:11 fail was worse than the pyle up on I95
  • 2 0
 i could definitely remember at least 4 of them. the silver lining is that people don't have nasty crashes every week! (or they don't film them)

 Right around 1:12, dude took a trip to Brokebike Mountain.

Then had a train run on him by his buddies. Ouch!!
  • 1 0
 At least him & his buds had the sense to try to get out of the way. Probably not the first time something like that happened.
  • 2 0
 Maybe Henry can advise him on where to buy a new fork

 Watching these poor folks hurt themselves is becoming a bad habit. Future generations will look at everyone crashing in amazement - IE such barbarians. I'm sure we'll have much superior protection eventually ... make an entire D30 suit. It would look like an orange wet suit.
  • 2 0
 What we need is a manufacturer to combine a chamois short with a jock strap for protecting "the boys".
  • 5 1
 Talk about messing up by not putting that one clip as the last one. Would have been a much better way to end it...
  • 3 0
 That is one way to end it Razz

 Who would have thought following too closely down a line/over a jump was a bad idea? Colour me shocked…

 Upvote for the unintended pun in last sentence.

 2:45 looks like a trail design issue waiting to happen.....and it did.
  • 1 0
 I don’t usually laugh to often at these - more like watching a train wreck kind of thing. But the multi rider pile up at 1:12 is hilarious. 360, fail / flip, fail / what the hell is going on down there, fail / oh shit! / splat.

 no worse feeling in the world than the slow dive over the bars. Inevitability Mr. Anderson.....

 Is it just me or have a lot of these been shown before?

 Seems a decent proportion of fails this week we’re those with a bit of leg showing twixt knee pad and short. Amateurs, the lot of them. As the famous saying goes, “An enduro bike doth not make thou a endurobro”

 @nukedchipp : he didn’t have a choice, you can’t stop in the air, his buddy took the wrong line.

 Thats one way to end eeettt

 That's a Friday fail, imo, "one way to end it' should have been the last clip!

 Hopefully he didn’t listen, again, and went heads down.

 Change the name of that track to Dirt Lunch Merchant maybe?
