 That kid who locked down the tree... 'you should see the other guy!'
  • + 25
 Yeah man, tree-smash dude deserves special mention.
  • + 72
 He fell then felled
  • + 5
 @czardave: This comment brightened up my whole day. Thanks internet stranger!
  • + 3
 @czardave: cheers fella
  • + 6
 @matt00mck: Internet strangers no longer! Nay, we're internet friends now.
  • + 2
 That tree saw what was coming but wasn't petrified...it was already dead.
  • + 38
 2:35, why would you ditch your handlebars like this?
  • + 32
 no hander lander attempt
  • + 21
 I feel like he had a chance to land it had he hung in there
  • + 8
 No kidding!
Perhaps he thought his superpower of unassisted flight would save him from that horrendous pound into the bars and then the dirt?
  • + 5
 @gtill9000: in all honestly if he would've thrown the bike down instead of just letting go he would've just landed on his feet and rolled or ran awy
  • + 5
 never skip arms day... that's what they say!
  • + 4
 @SnowshoeRider4Life: no hander no lander attempt
  • + 2
 @gtill9000: I think so too. He was def nose heavy but if he just holds on I think he rides away.
  • + 2
 His stomach was hungry for them.
  • + 27
 Skate Park video looks staged. Get that outta here as we want stuff that is natural.
  • + 14
 On purpose, for sure. Kinda funny tho.
  • + 9
 Intentional double launch into fluffy bushes? That's a win, not a fail.
  • + 3
 @mobikemike: "I see this as an absolute win!"
  • + 1
 Yeah I don't think you want people staging stuff for friday fails, that might end bad Big Grin
  • + 22
 some of these were brutal!
  • + 5
 It was like a mix of advanced fails and also the kind of fails I would do i.e. hang on and hope for the best.
  • + 5
 Yeah...some of these folks were really going for it...the dude who shorted that massive double...oof...that looked painful.
  • + 25
 we could start calling them Friday Fatalities
  • + 2
 @masonstevens: I sometimes wonder how many snuff films I've seen FF
  • + 18
 I don't get the riding with no gloves thing, it's just going to compromise how much your willing to break your fall trying to save your hands.
  • + 5
 I go no gloves but wish I didn't. It doesn't change the way I fall, but it does leave me with cut up hands that take forever to heal. I keep telling myself to wear them, but I'm so used to no gloves.
  • + 8
 @Adamrideshisbike: I uh... what?
  • + 7
 @jayacheess: I've gone no glove and regret that too.
  • + 17
 Dog was saying „what fcuk you doing down there?“
  • + 1
 My thoughts exactly.
  • + 1
 This is a repeat fail - saw this one a few weeks back.
  • + 12
 The berm blast police will love 02:56.
  • + 10
 Loads and loads of pure quality today!
  • + 21
 that's what she said
  • + 7
 These keep getting better!
Also why does this make me want to go ride?
  • + 2
 I'm with you on these making me want to go ride!

Sometimes it takes surviving a crash to make me fully accept that I can make a jump. It's probably a bad way to progress, but there's nothing like post-survival adrenaline + the realization that if I'd have fully committed I could have landed it to make me go back and nail a new jump. I think I might get that feeling vicariously through some of these!
  • + 6
 2:02 That was actually kinda badass.
  • + 2
 if he could have saved that...
  • + 1
 I'd immediately go with the "hey check out my drop to manny attempt..." if I were that rider showing my friends the vid
  • + 5
 The second crash in the video at 15 seconds was brutal. Made my palms sweat.
  • + 2
 You got rosy palms, ey?
  • + 6
 "Bro, are you good?"
  • + 41
 Narrator: Bro was not good.
  • + 5
 No Aaron Gwin fail??? Disappointing...
  • + 3
 Whistler, watershed and the bike ranch. BC is coming up big in today's friday fails.
  • + 2
 Was that the watershed at 2:28? Last time I rode that was probably 15 years ago. We used to call that the gravity bowl. You could pull some big G's on that thing!
  • + 2
 @Bikesnale: I didn’t know there’s a nice step up like that at the watershed. I’ll have to go have a look around
  • + 3
 There was some high speed carnage this week. Props for sacrificing for my viewing pleasure.
  • + 3
 I broke my wrist over the weekend, and these videos made me feel better :-)
  • + 4
 I shouldn't watch these, but they're addictive!
  • + 4
 0:17 you can actually feel his spine compress.
  • + 3
 2:35 made me wince - A lot of these weren't fails, more training mishaps - respect to those pushing themselves!
  • + 2
 2:08 Beacon Hill FTW! Makes me realize how timid my line is down that rock.
  • + 1
 LOL I thought the same thing, I've eyed that line before but have yet to take it. must have been last summer due to how brown and dead it looked.
  • + 3
 Announcer to Mountain: FINISH HIM!
  • + 4
 More! Give me more.
  • + 2
 That gut air release at 1:24.... I'm sure most folks on here have felt that. Ouch.
  • + 2
 3:08 "Don't look at the tree.. Don't look at the tree....Ahhh...ug... I looked at the tree....." lol
  • + 1
 Slow mo that first yard dart crash....don't know HOW that guy is walking afterwards...he's got an eternity of airtime staring at the dirt before he hits.
  • + 2
 The guy @ 2:47 looked like he was swimming in mid air. Glad he was able to walk away.
  • + 3
 *guy still sliding on his face* you okay bro?
  • + 1
 Perfect summary!
  • + 2
 1:47 , turned mom's dog into a trail dog ??
  • + 1
 Kind of sad that a large segment of folks waited until the purchase of a mtb to actually learn how to ride.
  • + 2
 Front end wash out at around 3:00 was a ripper, kudos the the pilot.
  • + 1
 Quality gets better and better. Must be the Nothern hemisphere summer madness...
  • + 1
 Some of those would be better not bothering with their bikes, just fling themselves off something high.
  • + 1
 73 Friday Fails in and they're still getting better and better. Pure carnage.
  • + 2

  • + 3

 The gloveless guy trying the X-up?whip? in Whistler @1.19 is pure bike park magic lol
  • + 2
 I don't look forward to the weekend anymore, just these videos
