 I like the clip counter. That's a nice Friday Fail upgrade.

 Got to love the close up of the trailside trash at the very end.

 Woman at 1:04 seems in surprisingly good spirits for having navigated that chute face first

 I thought the same.. highly unusual....

 #21: Good example of why to always ride pedals level.

 Take a roadie mountain biking for the first time!

 @JWadd: #21 does not look like a roadie...

 @alexlag: in the most literal terms, even a guy riding a bike to work after his 3rd DUI, is a roadie! Big Grin

 What a mine-field that section is, Bobbie trapped left and right.

 That moment of joy as you see a soft hedge to catch your fall. Best day ever.

 #28 where did the can come from?

 Same. I bet a large double double that it got ejected from his bottle cage. But it's probably trail side trash. Would be amazing if he was holding it at the time.

 Yes, I was intrigued by that as well @ 3:29

 @iammarkstewart: Might have been Modelo Time for the trail maintenance crew....

 And here I was telling a buddy who wanted to get back into mountain biking that there was a lot less going OTB now with modern geo, 29" front wheels and short stems...

 All those things do is let us over estimate our abilities haha

 except there are 29" rear wheels too

 #14 came darn close to nailing a proper Telemark landing.

 #21 was just like my last wipe out. Pedals in wrong position, adjusting my glasses in a flat "no danger" stretch of trail. I had time to form the thought "this is gonna hurt" before I body slammed into a pile of roots. Fat old guy learns pedal position discipline

 #26 was so bad it almost looked intentional

 I think it was an alien abduction or The Rapture - nothing else makes sense

 Very first clip - 10 Ply at Snow Summit. The ride-around is well worn at this feature. .

 Love the numbering! 13 & 18 are my favs. I'm a sucker for bikes landing in water.

 The last guy taking care of picking up the recyclables. Good on him, in NY he can get a nickel for each can!

 Anyone have any tips on how to get the action cam look in Clip #5?

I don’t have an action cam. But I’m curious what kind of kit you’d put together to get this same look.

 helmet mount, maybe at the bottom of a full face or underside of the visor?

 Nice, they implemented a body count!

 Friday fails make mtb crashes look so pathetic and lame but people are literally getting injured for weeks or months during them.

 The best feature of today's Friday Fails is that it is actually featured on PB. Do we only get it every other week now? Forced to view it on YT, which even with the same videos lack the savage PB commentary?

 They are all posted in PB under the “Originals” tab. If you only look at the “News” tab you may miss one.

 @BenLow2019: I look at them on my phone, and there's no "Originals" tab. Maybe that's a computer feature.

Regardless, FF should be on the front page every Friday!!!

 Whoever added the numbers deserves a raise! And whoever designed the 'bridge' in clip 18 has an evil sense of humour..

 So many OTB’s. Paul Aston could use this to hammer all of his geometry theories home.

 Hats off to the rider in #15; that rock line looks gnarly.
