 The crash into the edge of the metal gate - so brutal

 I can sit passively through most fails, but that one had be clinched.

 You weren't lying. Dangggg

 All that barbed wire right there too. Dude's arm is probably shredded.

 INTO barbwire fence too!!

 I nearly fell out of my chair. Terrifying. That was close to fatal...

 Could possibly qualify as a snuff film. It had some terrible foreshadowing as the focus shifted from the barbed wire, to the rider. I immediately though "I think I want to shut this off"

I thought it was a female rider rather than a dude as well.

Anyone know the source and outcome? I am not sure I will sleep until I know that person is alright

 The gate wasn't even opened wide enough. There is no way this could have worked out positively and the dude with the camera just stood there. Put down the camera and hold the gate open.

 @vapidoscar: cameraman was getting that super artsy floating shot. no time for gates.

 @Jsinisi: Pretty sure that's a lady. Heavy, nonetheless.

 @Jsinisi: Lady rider, and yes, from the sound she made I don't think it was an "I'm ok" kind of crash. Wish some of these had follow-up info. I'd love to see a whole week showing some of the worst crashes, the aftermath, and the rider back on the bike all healed up. Would be good for the soul.

 Damn that kid's bail at 3:09 went about as well as could be hoped, funny seeing them holding the snapped crank right after. On the flip side, the guy at 2:47 went about as badly as it could.
  • 5 0
 Seriously. Fails like 2:47 keep me from manualling any drop bigger than 2' for sure.

 @rcrocha: Don't think you could drop it at a worse time. Earlier and you have to redo the shot; latter and you're in the clear.

 Crank fell off- that kid has air awareness tho.

 Studies in canine character.
The white poodle at 1' 02" - "This is so embarrassing - hope nobody thinks I'm with this doofus".
Whereas the sheepdog at 1'25" - "You okay, bro - shall I go for help?"

 Typical poodle - wanders through life and simply DGAF. His owner's in a snapped bone pool of blood - shoulder shrug... Meanwhile the collie is busily checking for a pulse, which vertebrae are broken and opening the zip on the guy's backpack to get the phone to dial 999/911/112

 1:17 - TIMBER!!!

 I realize the tree was dead, but imagery of trees falling as you go crashing into them makes for one hell of a fail video.

 Trees got their revenge in the next clip though

 @HankHank: ouch! that rider is 2" shorter now.

 Dude on the green bike who massively over jumps and then decides to throw a sui lander at the last moment: What were you thinking?

 That was a brutal selection. Wincing just watching those.

 Opening clip was like when a chicken gets its head cut off but the body keeps on running around. Dude popped up like nothing happened.

 At 2:11 - do that jump 10 more time and you couldn't nail that rock crack if you tried. Looks like the bike got stuck. Ouchie
