 Much less brutal than usual.... I feel like none of these resulted in a GoFundMe page.

 That's funny, because I thought this one was brutal. I think the state of mind you're in when watching FF has a lot to do with how severely you perceive these falls. I've noticed my own reactions to them vary greatly even when the content isn't that different.

 0:46 ... if he's not eating from a straw, he's very fortunate.

"So cruise the step-down, then sneak in 3 or 4 quick pedals?"
"Yep, otherwise you don't have enough speed to clear it."

 Frickin news flash.. when removing a fallen tree cut the trunk as far away from the trail as possible. Why leave a foot diameter stump at bar or femur height baffles me. If the so called trail fairy’s make the effort to carry a chainsaw into the woods at least do the job properly.

 Which one are you talking about? Forest service has regulations that don’t allow you to do any saw work outside of a few feet from the trail. Pretty stupid but they may have cut it as far out as they could, especially if it was done with a legit trail crew and a supervisor

 @olafthemoose: mate I’ll just clarify, at around 2:13 it looks like somewhere in Australia going by the looks of the trees. It’s a common problem around here on the south coast especially when stumps are being concealed by ground cover ferns.

 People decide they are crashing before it's mandatory. IMO one of the key skills of an experienced rider is staying cool and simply reacting to what's happening instead of going limp on the bike. You can see some of the riders do this and only bail when they know they can't save it.

 @plyawn: No doubt and they were motoring coming into that jump.

 Guy on 2nd clip is so awkward landing and coming into that gap, like dude, it's okay to not full send every time... but then we wouldn't have FridayFails I guess!!

 Snow flip was pretty rad even if he didn't pull it

 00:14 he was casing the first jump and overshooting the second one big time. That seems also to be a fail of the trailbuilder...

 I’m not so sure. He put in a lot of pedal strokes (perhaps because of the case)

 “Rolling” …….. down the ramp on my face. Ahhh Duthie

 Whoa... surprise ending!

And at :50, wouldn't that count as a save or is sacrificing your bike an automatic fail?
