 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.
  • + 29
 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.

 Regarding watching, I like looking at a good mix!
  • + 1
 That made me laugh...@medievalbiking:
  • + 11
 I disagree. I like to see the range of effort.
  • + 2
 The variety is nice. Even on the dumber fails, at least they’re going for it! Gotta love it.
  • + 2
 Besides, how many people criticize fails when they don’t send it themselves...
  • + 1
 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.

 More dead sailors than HMS Endo.
  • + 5
 Not quite as many as Pirates of the Caribbean though
  • + 1
 @jlawie: ha ha i avoided Titanic and Kursk references and then you mention this, evil.
  • + 1
 But 1:37 was the best laugh!
  • + 34
 I hate that feeling when youre riding on the front wheel with no chance of riding it out.
  • + 116
 I ride on both wheels and still usually have no chance of riding it out
  • + 6
 @Paul7189: you’ve mad my day!
  • + 2
 I'm still riding the front wheel now.
  • + 17
 I always respect the guys that try a front flip.
  • + 9
 That very first guy... like he got sucked into some kind of gravity vortex. Looks like he accelerates after he flies off the bike.
  • + 10
 @1:23 I blame that a*shole with the ski pole. he pointed that poor dude at the tree.. beat him with that pole
  • + 3
 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.

 2:56 that was the same wallride as the last one!!!
  • + 6
 Last one did it better though
  • + 4
 Farmer John's bike park UK

 @freestyIAM: not sure how you could do it any worse than this one.
  • + 4
 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.
  • + 1
 I've been riding for 20+ years and that was my thought too, albeit about myself!
  • + 4
 Oh fine, I'll watch, I'll cringe, I'll leave the office and go have a bourbon to get over it.
  • + 4
 Got give the kid on the bmx credit he held on til the very end lol
  • + 2
 Mostly the type of crashes that make mountain bikers look stupid, but the nose wheelie would have been cool had he pulled it off.
  • + 1
 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)
  • + 0
 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?
  • + 3
 WTH was that snapping sound at 1:15? Sounded like a rifle being fired.
  • + 3
 i hope the visor, not an arm Smile
  • + 1
 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 @savagelake
  • + 1
 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.
  • + 2
 I’ve ridden that step-up at 2:37...it has a really small landing into the hillside.
  • + 1
 That was me back in the day
  • + 3
 boy scout nice
  • + 1
 1:45, I could totally see that happening to me. To my eye, he was doing everything right, results would indicate not.
  • + 1
 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.
  • + 4
 It also shows why #nogloves is a bad idea
  • + 2
 I love how he checks his hands after scraping his face across the turf.
  • + 1
 Too many hucksters in the kitchen. Can they even just peddle on a single track and go around a turn?
  • + 4
 They have their hands full just riding - don't ask them to sell anything!
  • + 2
 0:30 was on life support for so long. Almost saved it!
  • + 1
 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.
  • + 2
 Finally! Work is almost over
  • + 1
 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
  • + 1
 2:26 Pacifica! Love that these dudes are using that as a trick step up.
  • + 2
 Ooh,shit and f*ck
  • + 1
 the pic is my mate Aaron at moelfre a few years back lol
  • + 1
 Of send and bend...there is no end.
  • + 1
 Brilliant Hang 10 at 0:30. Dave Nourie would approve.
  • + 1
 Good to see that the Reign is still well represented here

 I know right!, that was the best laugh for me too Beer

 Award for the long bike throw, and the giggles too.
  • + 1
 The poor guy guy in the thumbnail got it all wrong.
  • + 1
 Would be awesome If you could add my fail on Friday Fails #50.

 Human lawndart edition!
