 @0.21 I bet the guy soon stopped laughing when he realised his bike had gone from being a Big Nine to 2 Small Four And A Halves.

 Riders were injured in the making of this video...seemed like the last few weeks were tame. Not so much this week. Well done people, we need the dentists and Ortho surgeons buying the 15k bikes to keep the economy going.

 No. Three weeks ago was way worse that this. #270. The metal gate? Will haunt me well into the future. The last two weeks were just recovery from that one.

 I'm declaring the second clip today's champion based on the fact that he used his backflipping bike to impart more energy and actually gained altitude after he separated from it.
Pretty sure I heard the Byrds playing their hit "8 miles high" in the background.

 Quite a few pile drivers in there. I was thinking of going out for a quick ride, now it's going to be a less than quick ride.

 Awesome to see Clavicle Hill at work in this video. Love how the family friendly trails in Utah have mandatory drops.

 SpaceX should start recruiting some of those guys. Plenty of astronauts there.

 Hey why don't you have a Gopro? Because people only want to see the crash footage. True.

 I thoroughly enjoyed the fat bike fail. Also the guy that ran into his friend's back tire and then crashed out was pretty funny

Well, eternal battle in as much as the tree never loses.

But our heroes keep trying Smile

 Uhhhh. That's a sketchy break on that Big Nine. Especially since Merida makes bikes for so many other brands.

 Toddball is correct. This is the slab on Bob's. Video doesn't do it justice!
