 Cursed is the rider who's front tire went straight into that rock crack.
  • + 18
 If you look at it, that’s where you’ll go! :-)
  • + 6
 Whatever you do, don't land in the crack. Damnit!!!
  • + 1
 @cunning-linguist: Nah... you can see the line most people hit, sends you straight down the backside of that rock. This dude turned on the lip.
  • + 23
 If a rider hits a tree and nobody is around does the tree start laughing hysterically?
  • + 8
 That crash is like something I would have nightmares about... Like that is a legit phobia of mine, that very scenario. I need a therapist after seeing it happen.
  • + 2
 All of the crashes this time felt like a warning video for Narcalepsy. Almost all of their heads tilted, the bikes leaned over and they laid down for naps.
  • + 1
 This looks like a Californian Trail. Anyone know what/where it is? I wanna slay myself on that big ass boulder.
  • + 4
 @MasterSlater:

Looks like Bandages at the You Yang’s in Victoria AU
  • + 6
 Crack kills
  • + 2
 That was a proper Crackandfail.
  • + 1
 @MasterSlater: It is Bandages and Glory at the You Yangs in Victoria like @Captain65 said. It's honestly hard to imagine how the rider in that video went for that crack. You can clearly see where you want to go as you approach haha.

 @Captain65: it is, I did it today

 When the guy crashed on the Rocky Mountain his friend yelled Pinkbike. This could be the biking version of yelling Worldstar! when you video a fight.
  • + 3
 Exactly!

 I don't think that dude's riding skills quite match the price of that bike. Poor guy was all over the place before he bit it.
  • + 56
 Tire buzzer got what he deserved for being too close
  • + 25
 Whoever does the rubbin gets the scrubbin
  • + 20
 They get more brutal every week...
  • + 6
 They get more pathetic every week too! And despite the bikes and equipment getting consistently nicer, the crashes are more "wtf are you doing".

How's that poor guy at 1:43, crashes hard because he TOOK HIS FOOT OFF THE PEDAL, and his buddies just keep recording.
  • + 1
 Dude was like: "neat"
  • + 4
 @twozerosix: Yeah his buds looked real concerned as they kept filming.
  • + 1
 @twozerosix: Seriously. A half-dismount immediately before landing... a poor way to bail. Just sort of self-destructs upon impact.
  • + 2
 Yup. The poor guy at 53s was a human lawn dart
  • + 11
 I propose a standard crash analysis comment form like:

[ ] nosedive because: [ ] shock rebound [ ] body position [ ] can't bunnyhop [ ] breaking [ ] too slow
[ ] coming short on jump
[ ] overshooting jump
[ ] landing on side
[ ] bar/bike hits tree
[ ] front wheel washout because [ ] understeering [ ] tyre pressure [ ] tyre [ ] noodle arms
[ ] general ineptitude
  • + 9
 My favourite part of all these is how the buddy filming always manages to get the whole crash and aftermath. No one ever sets the camera down to make sure they are ok, got to make sure you don't cut the video early. That is what true friends do.
  • + 2
 No no... They're obtaining evidence for the supreme court of Pinkbike, and we are the judges
  • + 5
 Go big! Hahaha love it some of these were solid gold...people biting off more than they can chew for sure! If you're not falling your not hauling! I laugh but theres some respect in there too...respectful laughing hahahaha
  • + 5
 As soon as I saw a fat man in blue jersey with Polish flag on his arm signaling his readiness to spill blood and give his life for the motherland, I knew I will hear either “o kurwa” or “ja pierdole”
  • + 4
 Rag doll fall @40s... Ouch!
1:08 Think I am getting too close to Larry??? Ouch!
1:40 Think I can stick my wheel in the crack? Ouch!
2:35 Target fixation.... Ouch! (could feel that one in my office chair.. Sympathy pain...)
  • + 8
 wait a second. is jumping dangerous?
  • + 5
 Driving is dangerous. Not knowing the scope of your own abilities is most dangerous
  • + 1
 Of course not! Where would you get that idea from?!
  • + 7
 1:23 - Is that the Pemberton train track gap?
  • + 5
 Nothing says "I really know what I'm doing here!" like sitting down on a fully compressed dropper, while going downhill, with a full face and armor on.
  • + 3
 How about sitting down on an extended dropper, while going downhill, without a full face and armor on?
  • + 4
 I see most of these riders tried to pay homage to Amaury Pierrons' nose down finish at Ft William... He held onto it though...
  • + 6
 O kurwa
Ja pierdole
Some basic polish words for you to learn Wink

 Nobel prize for the one who can translate and explain “chuj w dupe jeza” and “spierdalaj na drzewo”
  • + 2
 @WAKIdesigns: Translates to "hold my vodka"?
  • - 1
 @bishopsmike: no. It’s just that if you translate you directly it means “dick into hedgehogs arse” and “fk off onto the tree”.
  • + 2
 @bishopsmike: we actually use “hold my beer” same as in English. An universal concept it seems.
  • + 1
 @Grnnilddcv: that brought a smile to my face this morning, thanks for sharing that.
  • + 3
 I think my favourite types of crashes to watch are those ones that are super slow speed but you can't correct once you hit a certain point, like that last one
  • + 1
 it's almost evenly divided:

Those that can't gauge their speed, go way to fast, and have zero bike control
Those that forget they have cranks (and prolly 12 speeds) and can't figure-out how to make the bike go faster.

A few weeks back, PB lamed up and taught mtb-douches how to bunnyhop (um, yeah)... maybe it's time to start with the basics - um, like, steering, pedaling, bending the knees. Any amount of time spent around more than 10 carbon mtb-freds will tell you these vids are the norm.
  • + 5
 Jesus the train gap case.
  • + 4
 I’ve only had the “I’m about to ****ing die” moment once jumping out of an airplane years ago when I had a chute malfunction, but I’d imagine that split second of not knowing if you’re going to clear the train gap is about the same feeling.
  • + 4
 That voice crack at 2:20...totes adorbs!
  • + 3
 Of all the gaps you don't want to come up short on, the train gap is very high on the list. Ouch.
  • + 2
 At 0:39, that's what getting off your line nighmares are made of.

At 0:50, well...that's what paralysis is made of. Yard dart to flat, ooch.
  • + 2
 I can’t watch the whole video! Too painful. Too many broken collar bones.
  • + 3
 Did 1:17 manage to hold on?
  • + 3
 That was as pretty massive gap! Respect the send
  • + 2
 Ooohhhhhhhh....... Pinkbike!
  • + 1
 The dude's riding at 2:40 was way more stylish than his outfit would suggest. Until the crash that is...
  • + 1
 2nd to last fail - there has to be a super dope still photo pulled from that you can throw up on IG
  • + 1
 The guy at 1.09 following that close. You do that to me and you'll be flat on your face from something else. Douche.
  • + 2
 Happy to see everyone getting so sendy lately.
  • + 2
 2:00 north shore have nice safety feature! Big Grin
  • + 3
 Red Bull finish ftw.
  • + 1
 Classic dead sailor at 1:40 - laughing but as pheonix-up said, respectful laughing
  • + 2
 Fridays on Pinkbike; where ambition trumps talent.
  • + 1
 I have always wanted to see someone go into that pool at Sky Park. That water is nasty.
  • + 0
 Not that I don’t love a FF vid but these are all recycled from last year I think
  • + 1
 Guy yelling at 2:20 sounds like John Connor in Terminator 2.
  • + 1
 The first one made me spit out sandwich all over my computer screen!
  • + 1
 joey loves his fullface but no kneepads combo!
  • + 1
 It’s a shame 2:35 didn’t happen on Severed Dick.
  • + 1
 More people need kneepads
  • + 18
 Full face + no knee pads is a combo I'll never understand.
  • + 1
 @Jvhowube: Steven hawking

 The dude who's bike tumbles back into his hands was amazing.
  • + 2
 Coming in hot this week.
  • + 1
 Poor guy missed the target and landed in the crack...
  • + 1
 It almost looks as if he gave the bike a little English and aimed for the crack on purpose!
  • + 1
 Guy at 2:16 had me weak at "OHHHH SHIT"
  • + 1
 the guy at 2:10 did a Pierron!
  • + 1
 These impersonators are quick!

 My dog often adopts that pose...
