 Why didn’t the guy at 3:10 just moooove over to the left?
  • + 12
 Or he could have used his horn to let him know he was coming.
  • + 26
 I just watched it again. I'm not sure who's at fault or who has the bigger beef.
  • + 9
 Like a cow without legs, he became ground beef.

 I’d be havin some veal after that one. This is why I volunteer to eat red meat. They’re hazardous to mountain bikers.
  • + 9
 You can't let yourself be cowed by a crash like that.
  • + 16
 Definitely a clean hit. Primary point of contact was bellow the head.

 @JohnnyVV: "Yoi -got a burger!"
  • + 17

 Tough to steer out of that one!

 Seems like a load of bull

 Not sure who was faster, they were really hoofing it.

 Lucky he didn't end up udderneath it - Topside is preferable.
  • + 6
 Needed more cow bell.

 He needed to grab the bull by the horns

 @platnum: Hahaha, definitely a Canadian comment!!!

 That cow Bull-dozed the poor biker dude.
  • + 5
 BuddyBig Grin idn’t you get contacted by red bull?
Victim: Well not exactly....
  • + 34
 The sounds that a person makes when they're winded it just brutal. One of the worst feelings there is.
  • + 16
 Horrendous isnt it, you kind of sit there wondering if you are actually going to start breathing again.
  • + 14
 When there was two super similar in a row I actually laughed out loud, then realized how twisted I am..
  • + 6
 I remember that happening pretty frequently as a kid doing dumb stuff on bikes and skateboards or imitating pro wrestling. Would usually pop right back up. Then it happened again a few months ago (age 30) and I thought I might actually die at first.
  • + 4
 @SangamonTaylor: I had one so good i actually collapsed a lung! still managed to get to the bottom of the hill and find a medic Razz
  • + 4
 When you get winded and your mates come up and ask you if you are OK and you cant speak
  • + 2
 More grunting than Leo in The Revenant
  • + 25
 did the guy at 2:40 die? good god.....
  • + 8
 That one literally scared me. Good grief.
  • + 4
 That was horrible to watch. I wonder if a back protector is of any use when you're being smashed to the ground like that. Or when you're being folded in two during an OTB like so many of these fails.
  • + 15
 I love our modern society and modern mountain biking... because people have so much more faith in their ability, and then we get lovely videos like these.
  • + 13
 2:11-what a save!
  • + 3
 Yeah man, magic. Don't know how he managed that.
  • + 5
 Definitely not a fail!
  • + 2
 An inventive way to cut that corner
  • + 1
 Id believe you if you said the video was cut, unbelievable save
  • + 11
 2:40 is BRUTALLLLL
  • + 16
 That's a 12 year old and he broke his femur. Its been posted before. I catch a ton of sh--t for saying it, but someone that young, when their bones have not fully formed, should not be allowed on the big features.
  • + 4
 @oscartheballer: Why is that? Are a child's bones more brittle? I though it was the other way around.
  • + 11
 Fuck, no kidding... I don't like seeing that kind of shit, especially when it's a kid. Honestly, I think they should keep those out of the mix.
  • + 6
 @sino428: They have lower ultimate strength but they are less brittle I think, also the parts where the bones are still growing can get damaged and the bone won't keep growing. At least that's what I remember the doctor saying back when I broke my wrist as a youth 15+ years ago.
  • + 8
 @sino428: It's the epiphyseal plate, if it is screwed up it can lead to lifelong damage.

 Kids recover much quicker than their dads if this is of any solace to anyone. They also have at least 10 more years of fast learning period for their motorics. With a bit of luck and self awareness this kid will now always remember to unweigh the bike on the edge of any drop, and will not develop much mental trauma. For folks in my age 35-40 and onward, crashes like that can be career enders. Career ender sender... I have more and more friends who no longer want to hit sht like that. So, all the good vibes to the kid
  • + 3
 @WAKIdesigns: Not sure if it was a matter of not un-weighting the bike. Looked like he actually airs the up slope leading to the drop and almost clear the entire thing. His front wheel never even comes back down on the flat before the drop off.
  • - 1
 @sino428: he may have unweigh it too early. The catapult happens as the front drops, drags you down by your arms then rear keeps going forward for a moment as it leaves the edge. It looked like an accident at work. His pace and body position was defo not firstteamalljerry
  • + 3
 @WAKIdesigns: It looks like he was jumping the entire flat section of the drop and came up short. I'm sure he knows how to unweight his bike to ride the drop normally.
  • + 3
 @I think the major problem is if the break is near the growth plates. Kid bones are more flexible up to a certain age but by 12 they’re probably nearly as brittle as a young adult.
  • + 3
 @mmoon: yea kid looks like he’s about to clear the whole thing and then hangs up
the rear wheel.
  • + 1
 @sino428: Edit: Just saw other people replied similarly Smile
They may be less "brittle" sometimes, but with growing bone, growth plates etc, yeah you could look at it as best case he heals more quickly/completely maybe, but that could also seriously mess a kid up for life.
  • + 9
 Rebound is a helluva drug
  • + 5
 2:40 - 2:42 is the type of crash that scares me most.

By that I mean it looks like it was within his skill level, but he made a small mistake, that cost him dearly. Its the exact sort of thing I'm worried about (as a guy who tries to ride within his limits "most" of the time.

In this case he overcooked the entry, and flew over the entire run in on the drop, clipping only the very end of it with the rear tire, sending him horribly over the bars.

Yikes.

 I enjoyed the 2 sparsely placed pads on either side of the wood berm in the beginning which the guy completely misses. Those are called anti-lawsuit pads. Not actually meant to break falls.
  • + 3
 That’s on Trestle’s Pro Line (Banana Peel) and it makes you sign off with a special waiver just for it. The whole time I eyed it I feared for that damn gap. Now that I gotta’ think about falling off the feature too, I guess I ain’t ever doing it. Dang.
  • + 3
 That is the Banana Peel at Trestle Bike Park and where he fell off is like 12 feet up, maybe more. No way that felt good.
  • + 8
 Holy cow

 2:40. dam. also not good to watch with the sounds on i hope everyone will be fixed and back on bike soon.
  • + 3
 Made me cringe
  • + 5
 I laugh and laugh and then remember that karma is a b**ch.
  • + 4
 OMG! 3:01 vs 3:10!!! That's got to be the 2 best fails I've seen in a while!
  • + 3
 Holy balls 2:40!!! I made the exact gut wrenching sounds just watching that one.

 Weekly Friday PSA:

"Rebound damping regulates the speed at which your fork or shock recovers, or bounces back, from an impact and returns to its full travel. Much like a compression circuit, rebound damping relies on oil moving through a circuit to regulate the speed at which the suspension extends after being compressed."

 What is your point? You think everyone who gets bucked has their rebound set incorrectly? That has almost everything to do with poor control or the bike and body position, not rebound settings. Sure you could slow your rebound to a crawl and maybe eliminate some of those instances but your bike would ride like shit the rest of the time.
  • + 2
 @sino428: Just a joke dude, not everyone has their rebound set wrong. It's one more thing to pay attention to before you send it into that big lip and get bucked. Getting better is hard and it can hurt, a lot. Some of those offs are avoidable by checking your settings. Not everyone knows or appreciates how much of an impact rebound can have off a lip.
  • + 2
 @edim like I said, I see a lot more rider error than bad setups in these fails.
  • + 1
 Leafs need to draft this beast with that display of brutal physicality,
pure speed, agility, balance & strength.... Looks durable as well.
Smart too keeping out of the box so to speak.

 Nothing like a side of beef out on the trail...
  • + 1
 Does anyone else find it odd how there are so many russians/eastern europeans in these videos?
  • + 1
 Pretty sure that wreck at 0:20 had to be the most terrifying. Getting impaled on the framework!
  • + 1
 2:40 front flip off the drop was the best fail all time. 5 10's from the judges and a gold medal !
  • + 1
 0:48 - "up you get mate, up you get!" haha got a love a commentator who's more concerned about your race time!!

 OMG that very first slam!!! is it me or does it look like his arm is no longer attached to their shoulder?
  • + 1
 That first intro. James Stewart couldn’t scrub that low off a jump! Yet he managed it with out scrubbing. Hmmm pro!
  • + 1
 1:09 I'm pretty sure that's DCDH in Cumberland! Seen a good few crashes in that very spot.
  • + 2
 0:45 I think Amaury Pierron did it better lol

 That one at 1:33 really captures how a wreck like that feels to the rider.

 Good Video.

 Maybe it's just me but that first one just seems like a terrible feature. A gap jump straight into an elevated wooden berm?
  • + 2
 Banana Peal at Trestle. Pretty intimidating line.
  • + 2
 That first one is on Banana Peel at Trestle Bike Park. It's a pro line where you need to sign a waiver before riding.

 @GTJoel: no kidding! Watched the video @blensen commented. there's no room for error at all on that line hah

 Look where you want to go, easy on the front brake, and pull up on jumps.

 Don't know why this s down voted. That sounds like good advice to save a few fails for sure.
