 Lets boycott the Poll until they Piss off with the mid-way ads. Fook YOU OUTSIDE!!!
  • 38 0
 Funny thing, this sh*t is so broken that I rarely get any ads, it simply blinks like it wanted to play one but couldn't and it goes on. No, i don't have any ad blocker, just plain Chrome Smile

 I understand the need for ad revenue but all the Friday Fails content is user generated... at least spare us the ads on this and save it for the other content.

 What will boycotting the poll achieve? They make money from ads, not from selling ratings poll data on niche videos.

Unless Outside is getting on the AI bandwagon and they're going to start making AI generated crash reels so perfectly targeted at our lust for gore that we'll deal with the ads to get our fix......

 Firefox + Ublock Origin you IT buffoon. Unless you use Apple products, then you truly are a lost cause.

 there's ads? not on my end

 I use DuckDuckGo as my browser and I never have had any ads.

 Youtube puts ads on content even if the creator does not enable monetization, your anger is misguided

 @Bragelonne: Whenever I use a non-apple computer or phone, the magic smoke comes out.
I am precisely as you asserted, an IT bafoon.

 Just looking at that wet skinny at 1:42 raised my blood pressure.

 That's the millennium log at Mt Seymour. It's like three feet wide. If you can ride a sidewalk you can ride that.

 I think sheet ice would have had more grip!

 @urbanacheiver In your chest or in your pants?

 That’s not a skinny…
It’s also relatively grippy, unless you grab a handful of front brake of course.

 YES, sometimes trouble does not find you, Sometimes you look for it

 @whitebirdfeathers wet wood of any width automatically triggers me, but I’m old. Too many crashes and surgeries.
  • 2 0
 Same here - I've almost as many injuries and carnage on wet wood, bridges/logs/skinnies, than actual trail features....

 Thank you, Pinkbike, for starting at #1 this week

 #16 Double troubble ! Such an impressive simultaneity

 This is like the decompression reel from the slams shown last week.

 Pretty boring FF today.....and those ADS, OMG....

 13 was a save. That skinny was wet as heck and the guy landed on the plank rather than 10 ft down (that's what it looked like).

 #2 was bad ... that's going to hurt in the morning. I chose #3–even though it cuts short I think he was about to slam his head hard. It looked concussive.
  • 2 0
 Agreed.

#2 was by far the worst looking to me.

Looks like he slipped a pedal on the right foot, then was good... until his left foot caught a pedal on something, and he went down. Hard.

I've had a few broken ribs and a toe that was shattered in 5 places due to a lower speed one. I can't imagine what this one ended up causing.
  • 2 0
 Broken BB I think.

 #3 for sure was concussed. His head was just about to slam sideways onto the ground. It was my vote. 2 seemed to roll ok-ish but i get why its the number one vote.

 always love seeing my local trails lol
Six Pack claims another victim in clip #12

 Got to #10, no further. Ads. If just we were on just Youtube and browsing, fine. However, we are on Pinkbike, surrounded by ads. Obivous Outside is squeezing as hard as they can. F you Outside! These are user generated videos and you are basically stealing/borrowing them. Are you paying the actual riders/folks holding the camera a cut?

 Last weeks #1 is going to take some beating!

 Adds suck! Can't even watch Friday fails anymore without someone trying to sell crap. Side note not everyone that rips MTBs drives a Toyota! Lol

 Fuckin fail of a thread in 2 levels. First, spell your ads correctly. Secondly, put the goddamn ad-blockers on! Or, GTFO!

 We've been saying the drop at #2 is gonna get someone killed. He's done it before too, sucks
  • 1 0
 Why? From the video, it doesn’t seem unreasonable at all
  • 6 0
 The wind was NOT the problem
  • 2 0
 @joecrosby: sure if you know what you're doing. but the drop is right off of a non-mtber bike path and its very tantalizing I think. like someone might try it as a dare you know? when they shouldn't

 @mariomtblt: maybe for the benefit of the herd.

 A pretty chill week compared to last. Wonder if they’re warming up for a return to the prior level of assault on our senses…

 best part was the Tacoma commercial showing it driving over rocks... with a big disclaimer saying Do Not attempt/Professional/Closed course...

 Being a Yotabro, I would have watched that ad but saw none. Damn ublock origin

 Pro tip: watch on YouTube with an ad blocker, no ads!

 Lots of attempts at stem riding in this batch. And was #8 shot in a cave? Barely any light.
  • 2 0
 Presumably shot that way as a super duper cool cinematic effect. The real fail is leaving their bike in the middle of the shot

 #8 was dark fest.

 so dark you can't even see it! Had to vote #9

 No way; #13 is the only legitimate riding in the video.

For the opposite, #6.

 Fail of the month was the same advert at the start and the middle. Way better than anything the riding showed.

 I liked #15.
Jump/over the bars/eats dirt/bike smacks him in the back of the head for good measure.

 My favourite is all the ones where they send it well but crumple like a cheap suit on landing.

 Does it make me evil that I get great satisfaction out of ebike fails no matter how catastrophic?

 #17 Giant Outbound Lighting light through off that jump...great for lighting, not ballast!

 I you have any judgement you just dont ride a slimy tree trunk with green moss on it when its raining, I'm not from the west thought, might be totally normal for locals over there?
  • 1 0
 @simsong: It is almost never dry on the We(s)t Coast. Learn to ride skinnies when wet or take up hiking.
  • 1 0
 @maxetak: this one looked especially slippery, but also I mentioned it might be normal in the west, no need to insult me talking about hiking Wink
