That dude coming in hot, hits a rough patch and plows his chest into a tree, damn worst fear right there
(Feb 1, 2019 at 6:26)
George, watch out for that treeeeee....!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 7:17)
I think his bike needs to be set up...
(Feb 1, 2019 at 8:12)
the worst! those pine trees have sharp branches, makes me shudder
(Feb 1, 2019 at 9:02)
That's Colin Ross, He's an Irish pro, pretty sure the full video with this clip is on YouTube.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 9:58)
: Must have been yourself that set it up for him when he won Masters DH World Champs last year then?

For the record, I am not the friend that instantly asks, 'Oh! Are you okay?'
I walk over, pick their bike up, lean it against a tree (off the trail), giving the rider some space and easing their fears of a broken bike, while they sort out whether the body is broken.
This, I believe, is the more appropriate response.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 9:29)
Exactly. They don't *know* whether they're alright immediately after they come to a stop. (Or while they're still moving, in the case of some of these "Are you alright?"-ers.) Keep quiet, let the birds stop chirping, and give them a few seconds to sort themselves out first.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 9:55)
In Yorkshire here in the UK,everybody just pisses themselves laughing first,then start to consider how serious it maybe later
(Feb 1, 2019 at 10:41)
Time to sort it out is absolutely right: I once jumped up from a terrible crash and told my buddy, "Call for help right now! I know I'm really hurt, but I don't know where yet!" I turned out to be fine: mildly sprained wrist and shredded clothing.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 13:19)
100% agreed. Tomahawked myself into the ground pretty good over the last weekend, and my buddy came around the corner to find me on my back like a turtle. Said he asked me if I was alright three times with no response (rang my Bell pretty good). Was doing my physical inventory (no bones sticking out, everything aiming in the right direction, and so on) and slowly got up. Got to give the time to sort things out as
(Feb 1, 2019 at 21:21)
: exactly. laughing never hurt anybody more than they already are. and if they really did get hurt, they won’t even remember u laughing.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 22:29)
(Feb 1, 2019 at 22:46)
: ha! poor ba$tard.
(Feb 2, 2019 at 2:24)
: yeah, time for system reboot and damage assessment.
Alive? Can i shout? Can move all my limbs? Pain anywhere? Blood anywhere? HEY, CHECK MY BIKE, IS IT OK?!! Can i stand up?
(Feb 3, 2019 at 6:43)
Agreed - but immediately after the "ah, SH*T!" it's pretty natural to ask "Are you OK?"
Especially if you're the one who talked your friend into trying it for the first time while you film it!
(Feb 3, 2019 at 8:59)
Give me a break @adamrideshisbike. It doesn't matter what question you ask of a downed rider, but you immediately ask a question to see if they are coherent. Then you help them up, get their bike, call for help or whatever is needed.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:15)
I mean, call me an idiot, but it always staggers me why you would take on a ten ft drop from a two ft run up...
(Feb 1, 2019 at 11:07)
youre an idiot
(Feb 1, 2019 at 11:49)
(Feb 1, 2019 at 12:33)
: eh bud just doin as i'm told
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:26)
Lesson don’t leave your bike close to the trail edge for you buddy to get impaled on!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:54)
Title should be “Feel Good Friday” because these videos always make me feel so much better about my own riding skills.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 10:26)
Why do all of these remind me of me? Oh, never mind.
(Feb 3, 2019 at 6:45)
Ya because good riders never have bad/stupid/unlucky crashes.
My worst accident was after a 2-hr session on the biggest dirt jumps I've ever ridden; fell off my bike on the road in from of my house and was out for almost an entire year. Schadenfreude can be a real bitch...
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:09)
1:35 - WTF?
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:23)
I have so many questions!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 8:10)
He had to be wrecking before he got there, otherwise WTF indeed.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 6:38)
Trailbuilder should be sent to school for that ugly thing at 1:59. That gap with that "transition" then the corner right away. The only way that makes sense is if the trailbuilder is the guy holding the camera giggling to himself quietly.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 11:10)
Friday Fails isn't about riding fails it's more about trail building fails. Each week we are shown how not to build jumps and gaps.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:27)
is the guy at 1:28 still with us?
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:45)
probably all around us
(Feb 1, 2019 at 5:02)
: haha! (unless he really is)
(Feb 1, 2019 at 8:01)
i wonder if he has his spleen yet?. Lacerated mine on same impact.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 10:30)
When a broken femur is the _better_ outcome...
(Feb 1, 2019 at 7:00)
Man, that guys mom hit that tree pretty hard.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 9:34)
I almost choked on my apple!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:48)
Please change it to "Monday fails". See it at Fridays it's discouraging for the weekend ride.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 9:44)
...or a reminder not to go out of your depth too soon. That how I see it.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 14:28)
Mountain bikers. Do more push-ups.
Some decent upper-body strength could probably prevent 50% of the crashes on the average one of these edits.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:54)
You guys must be lawyers cause there were so many cases this week.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 11:59)
If you wanna hit big stuff please slow down your rebound
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:10)
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:36)
that tree came out of nowhere
(Feb 1, 2019 at 5:25)
: Those trees can be sneaky sometimes
(Feb 1, 2019 at 6:32)
: it's a breed called Treeky
(Feb 1, 2019 at 6:57)
(Feb 1, 2019 at 5:11)
Ride 26. Get rekt!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 8:38)
Face plant Friday!
(Feb 2, 2019 at 8:02)
Hey, any chance you guys could put out a censored version? My four year old loves this series but I’m afraid it may be expanding his vocabulary...
(Feb 4, 2019 at 6:05)
If these guys don't laugh at their mates are they even real mountain bikers? ????
(Feb 3, 2019 at 13:24)
Loving the arty ones that are trying to be a segment from anthill. Then it all goes wrong
(Feb 2, 2019 at 10:05)
Nice 'Ohhh shit' when guy whips so hard it causes him to crash at :30. The fist pump at :40 is also great.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 8:51)
(Feb 1, 2019 at 6:48)
Friday Fails, don't watch it , just try listening to it, hilarious.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 4:49)
Oh shit. lol
(Feb 1, 2019 at 15:10)
That kinda looked like a soft landing in those big ferns.
(Feb 2, 2019 at 22:09)
That was me, the ferns definitely helped
(Feb 1, 2019 at 14:22)
3:15 - this jump must have claimed many bones and ligaments . Jesus...
(Feb 2, 2019 at 0:28)
Ha!! If you have suspension on a BMX it is no longer a BMX!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 15:14)
Skip leg day and work on arm day.
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Feb 1, 2019 at 5:40)
Rule of thumb when hitting doubles: You should be at an uncomfortable speed when approaching the lip. If your comfortable, your screwed!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 7:01)
That’s exactly the sort of advice that leads to this type of video!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 12:50)
: If you didn't ride BMX I guess your right! but I have been telling myself this since I was a young pup and its been keeping the rubber side down. Cheers!
(Feb 1, 2019 at 13:43)
Exactly true though. Better to overshoot the landing than come up short.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 16:59)
: not much bmx for me but a decent amount of hardtail dirt jumping. I get your angle, but my preferred approach would be this: if you’re not comfortable with the speed necessary, then stay off the jump. Being comfortable and confident maybe the most important factors to me when hitting jumps.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 17:00)
: I agree that’s it’s better to go too fast then too slow. But I disagree that you should feel uncomfortable. I do think you should usually resist that nagging urge to do a little brake check.
(Feb 1, 2019 at 19:11)
: a bmx is a hardtail dirt jumper
