 Legend has it that the guy at 3:30 is still riding out that nose manual

 That might have been my favorite clip ever. Still laughing at that one.

 That's the one that had the most yuks for me.

 If a rider falls out of camera view in the woods does he really fall?

 @steveczech: My pride says no but my friends may tell a different story.

 3:23 Leogang stump lobotomy?

 Yeah dude almost died

 That could have gone so wrong in so many places in such a short amount of time. He sounded pretty happy to have survived.

 That was insane -

 Watched the whole video waiting to comment that the guy on Schlayer at 0:18 had the hardest working guardian angel until I saw that dude play human Plinko in the stumps!!! Beer

 @blowmyfuse: There's just no where soft in that Schlayer rock garden.

 those stumps are not working as intended, I'd rise them 1 foot and add some boulders in between
  • 1 0
 @fektor-b: Honestly...I left in 2015 trying to figure out a few Schlayer lines in my head and just had to let them go knowing if I missed, I'd skip down boulders like so much waste.

I went wanting so badly to hit a few things there that are still out of my grasp to this day. Get a lot less brave when you're half a world away from your own pillow.

 @blowmyfuse: haha there are certainly a couple of lines that are ridiculous. Especially in that Schlayer rock garden. I think there was some gap you could make half way through it that was hella sketchy. Have a feeling I watched Kenny Smith do it. If whistler was a video game, there would be the main tracks, then all the side hits where you get crazy bonus points.

 2:53 is a Sunday Save... holy compression.

 The 1:59 no hander to slow mo crash was a thing of nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo beauty, and then to top it off the bike does a flip and gets him square in the nuts.

 A nice no-hander to Vander Roll, for sure

 @yonderboy: extra points for remembering the Vander Roll. Classic 80's freestyle!

 For anybody who wants to know, the second clip (first after the Friday fails title screen) that is a blind off camber rock slab gap on Schleyer in Whistler. It has a shit run in and an even more shit run out as its in a rock garden. It was popularized by Rémi Métailler, and it is gnarly as hell! There is a video out called hidden gaps of Whistler, and several top level elite riders won't hit it. You need mad speed and to thread the needle. Hats off to the guy for attempting it.

 Genuinely thought the guy at 1:25 was gunna hit the stratosphere

 Haha - yeah man the buildup to that one was intense.

 Looks like Friday Fatalities from the first clip

 If that dude had no internal bleeding , he was luckier than sheet!

 That's a hospital trip for sure!

 Too bad the guys at 2:10 didn't have a bmx background.

 After watching some of these, a full face helmet is looking more appealing.

 Check out Snoopdogg's IG this AM for the FF need.

 I switched over to a FF helmet last year .. and because I'm older and (reasonably) wiser, I did it before any serious crashes too.
  • 2 0
 I have to agree... Makes me think maybe I should use mine more.
  • 2 0
 There are so many light and well vented options out there now. I've only regretted my FF on the hottest of days.

 @bikeybikeybikebike: yep. I have a proframe. Really don't have an excuse.
  • 2 0
 Budget vs baller helmet editions?
  • 2 0
 Yep... why I got a 7IDP Project 23 FF. Even on warm days it is not a deal breaker. Great ventilation. I wear it every ride now.

 @njcbps: Me too. TLD stage for all my rides.

 @suspended-flesh: Man just walked away from his bike, you know he's hurting!

 1:40 is a win in my book. Not landing a huge backflip, but managing to let go of the bike and land and slide without getting hurt is huge.
  • 1 0
 Sounded like his seat or his ass hit his tire and stopped him from rotating off the lip. Lucky for sure, that could have been bad!
  • 1 0
 if you're feeling gutsy, rewatch and look at his elbow after skidding. OUCH.

What the hell was his plan? What were all the teenagers doing halfway up some trees?

 and what's that laughing hyena doing behind the camera?

 That right there is why those pavers scare me.

 0:56 is the bottom of In 'n' Out Burger. I guarantee there's a lot of people crashing into the trees there.

 Never seems to amaze me at the amount of people that film themselves. Good for us i guess.

 That nose manual at 3:30 looked absolutely dialed!

 "I think so, I think so". I've thought that same thing, when quite often it turned out not to be the case. Still, gotta love that positive mindset.

 That schleyer crash was gnarly... woof

 High quality fails this week,one of the best!
3:30 had me laughing out loud.

 Another compilation of some crashes. Note to self - don't suggest jumping gaps to new riders, because casing is a sure way to end up in this video.

 Two biggest fails today:

1. BMX clips
2. Kid who covered the gopro at 2:58

 The logos at the end didn't cover up the last crash. I call that progress.
  • 2 0
 I always laugh when a rider says "I’m good!" When clearly as evidenced by the crash they are not that good.
  • 2 0
 1:20 - is that what they mean by bike-body separation?

 No wonder that guy crashed at :50, there was a snake wrangler on the side of the trail!

 1:31 Pleasantside Elementary in Port Moody? My hometown and a favourite trail, YES!

 That jump at :35 had a ditch dug out of it from how many times it has been cased

 @ :50.... Is that Greg Minaar with the selfie stick?? #GOAT

 I thought the same thing! Watched it a few times and I don't think it is :/

 @2:56 god failed both the raider and the guy filming, what a waste of a good fail catch!

 “O Boże Kurwa Mac” is as close Jesus Fkng Christ in Polish as it gets.

 Good news-got a kurva!! Bad news-more BMX fails. I said it last week and I'll say it again, this is an MTB site. If I want non mtb fails I'll look at Mustangs spinning out leaving Cars and Coffee.....but not here!!
