these guys that are nearly landing, and honestly even attempting 360s and flips shouldn't be put in the same fail video as the dudes that are complete yard sales off poorly executed jumps and poor corning skills.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 19:57)
Concur! I could not agree more! Most of us will never attempt a 360 or back flip. Those guys are mad-dogs for attempting it, not failures. It's still fun to watch all the dead sailors off the smallest jumps though haha

Reminds me of failarmy vids when they put in clips of gymnastics/ pro bmx riders and skaters bailing next to jimmie-bob yelling hold my beer then faceplanting into the chicken coop. It's not a fail if you're 1 step closer to doing something amazing.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 4:39)
Regarding watching, I like looking at a good mix!
(Dec 15, 2018 at 5:50)
That made me laugh...@medievalbiking:
(Dec 15, 2018 at 14:46)
I disagree. I like to see the range of effort.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 17:24)
The variety is nice. Even on the dumber fails, at least they’re going for it! Gotta love it.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 17:26)
Besides, how many people criticize fails when they don’t send it themselves...
(Dec 17, 2018 at 13:05)
I was just thinking the same thing. When your trying something complex your going to crash until you get it. But, I always laugh my ass off when someone who has absolutely no skill tries just cornering or something and ends up eating shit.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:14)
More dead sailors than HMS Endo.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 23:17)
Not quite as many as Pirates of the Caribbean though
(Dec 15, 2018 at 0:44)
: ha ha i avoided Titanic and Kursk references and then you mention this, evil.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 11:32)
But 1:37 was the best laugh!
(Dec 14, 2018 at 16:41)
I hate that feeling when youre riding on the front wheel with no chance of riding it out.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 16:54)
I ride on both wheels and still usually have no chance of riding it out
(Dec 15, 2018 at 0:02)
: you’ve mad my day!
(Dec 15, 2018 at 8:20)
I'm still riding the front wheel now.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 19:12)
I always respect the guys that try a front flip.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 19:16)
That very first guy... like he got sucked into some kind of gravity vortex. Looks like he accelerates after he flies off the bike.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 6:20)
@1:23 I blame that a*shole with the ski pole. he pointed that poor dude at the tree.. beat him with that pole
(Dec 16, 2018 at 13:22)
For sure, you can see the rider look at the pole (I think it's a monopod for a camera) and move rider left subconsciously, then he gets crossed up off the drop and goes straight into the tree.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:55)
2:56 that was the same wallride as the last one!!!
(Dec 14, 2018 at 22:50)
Last one did it better though
(Dec 15, 2018 at 2:30)
Farmer John's bike park UK
(Dec 15, 2018 at 5:00)
: not sure how you could do it any worse than this one.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 7:53)
To ALL you new riders especially...you know that watching bike crashes will mess with your mind when it comes to you making that decision on the spot "I'm going for it" instead your mind will process all the bad outcomes. Just a thought.
(Dec 16, 2018 at 22:31)
I've been riding for 20+ years and that was my thought too, albeit about myself!
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:10)
Oh fine, I'll watch, I'll cringe, I'll leave the office and go have a bourbon to get over it.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 18:07)
Got give the kid on the bmx credit he held on til the very end lol
(Dec 15, 2018 at 22:31)
Mostly the type of crashes that make mountain bikers look stupid, but the nose wheelie would have been cool had he pulled it off.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 20:03)
They found my back to back 360 attempts from my early noob days. I wonder how many of these fail videos I have made but haven’t known (Got to many epics crashes on vid)
(Dec 15, 2018 at 11:42)
how to get some of these MAIN PAGE photo's? been seeing these the past couple months and some of them are pretty burly/cool. would like to copy some for my photo album. where to find all the Friday fails main pic's?
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:08)
WTH was that snapping sound at 1:15? Sounded like a rifle being fired.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:18)
i hope the visor, not an arm
(Dec 14, 2018 at 18:29)
I was gonna' say carbon cracking, as I've heard carbon frames break and it literally sounds like a .22 being fired, but that was a little too quiet and not "cracky" enough. So I have no idea, hopefully helmet or visor like you mentioned
(Dec 16, 2018 at 11:27)
1:45 reminded me of when I broke my finger....
Fairly benign crash, get up sort of smirking or smiling, quickly glance at hand....uhhhh wait a sec, f*ck.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:45)
I’ve ridden that step-up at 2:37...it has a really small landing into the hillside.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 20:05)
That was me back in the day
(Dec 14, 2018 at 19:24)
boy scout nice
(Dec 15, 2018 at 0:18)
1:45, I could totally see that happening to me. To my eye, he was doing everything right, results would indicate not.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 4:45)
Agreed. His form was textbook. I think he was just unlucky that a bit of the grass or something beside the trail gave way. Something shoots off to the right as if he's dislodged it. He looks to be right on the limit of traction.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 6:14)
It also shows why
is a bad idea
(Dec 15, 2018 at 7:35)
I love how he checks his hands after scraping his face across the turf.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 8:23)
(Dec 14, 2018 at 18:48)
Too many hucksters in the kitchen. Can they even just peddle on a single track and go around a turn?
(Dec 15, 2018 at 9:12)
They have their hands full just riding - don't ask them to sell anything!
(Dec 14, 2018 at 18:56)
0:30 was on life support for so long. Almost saved it!
(Dec 14, 2018 at 21:14)
I feel weird saying this but that was a rad crash. His bike was ready to go instantly, he shot back up. If only he'd been facing his bike and ridden off after jumping back on. Just awesome.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 16:38)
Finally! Work is almost over
(Dec 15, 2018 at 8:44)
I dont' think that sick nose wheelie at :31 is really fail. Even an excellent dismount at end. I say its a 8.6 score
(Dec 17, 2018 at 10:30)
2:26 Pacifica! Love that these dudes are using that as a trick step up.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 10:52)
Ooh,shit and f*ck
(Dec 16, 2018 at 14:51)
the pic is my mate Aaron at moelfre a few years back lol
(Dec 16, 2018 at 4:11)
Of send and bend...there is no end.
(Dec 15, 2018 at 11:28)
Brilliant Hang 10 at 0:30. Dave Nourie would approve.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 19:54)
Good to see that the Reign is still well represented here
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:54)
(Dec 15, 2018 at 0:30)
(Dec 15, 2018 at 11:34)
I know right!, that was the best laugh for me too
(Dec 16, 2018 at 14:49)
Award for the long bike throw, and the giggles too.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 18:14)
The poor guy guy in the thumbnail got it all wrong.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:41)
Would be awesome If you could add my fail on Friday Fails #50.
(Dec 14, 2018 at 17:56)
Human lawndart edition!
(Dec 17, 2018 at 8:59)
1:45 GET UP!
(Dec 14, 2018 at 16:34)
(Dec 15, 2018 at 6:03)
Those who crashed pushing their own limits, are all winners
(Dec 15, 2018 at 2:34)
I just love when kids say "fxck"
(Dec 14, 2018 at 22:12)
The best Friday Fails!
(Dec 15, 2018 at 10:24)
no deadly drops?
