 3:30 Nothing like taking 5 with your bro to celebrate the send in the middle of a jump line.

 Honestly this one kinda made me mad. Idiots and their lack of trail etiquette / safety.

 And that's when they realized the concept of "Other People"

 Oh same. When I got up those little sh&ts bikes would be flying through the air off over the hill.
  • 31 1
 This is when it's ok, maybe even encouraged, to throw someone else's bike off the trail.

 I almost landed on an 8 year old girls head last year, she was "hiking with granpa" who was about 1000 meters down the trail gasping for air. FYI this was NOT a hiking trail........................

 About a year ago I rode by a bike that had been parked on the MUP by the kickstand, in the lane of travel; the rider was sitting on the embankment having a chill time. I pushed his bike over and kept going.

 I raced comment section to say the same thing! Happens way too often! Almost started a few fights because of it but cooler heads prevailed fortunately.

 Those dudes could have (might have) seriously hurt someone. I'd have a hard time not kicking their spokes in and tossing their bikes down the hill

 All of these bikes can be found under "Gently Used" in the Buy & Sell section of PB.

 You're right the 29ers make a huge difference on the hilarious crash influx.

 @JohanG: We had 2 scooter share companies invade our city this summer. People leave those things everywhere including the middle of paths and trails. I take it as my civic duty to toss any impeding the path into the bushes, down the bank or in the ditch. City should give me a medal.

 @ratedgg13: I almost jumped onto a guy who had his camera up waiting for his boys - he had no idea I was coming in hot. Bros and their Instagram needs.

 Wait, they aren't the only people to use that trail? Smile

 as the author of this video the track was a short jump track that was new and had no walking track round the side.(there is now). we had asked if the track was clear but our freinds were to far away too hear. the rider was fine

 The best part is when they go, "what are you so mad about? Everybody crashes."

 @Beez177: It's probably happened to most of us. Mine was on a pre-ride of the Mt 7 psychosis race. There's a rocky left hand descent and a guy was stopped right at the bottom. I went over the bars trying to avoid him. He even said "shit I guess I shouldn't have stopped here".
GEE, YA THINK?!

 I was expecting to see a 13yr old and it turned out to be a middle-aged dude.
  • 64 0
 @mark2203: Middle Aged Dude sees neighbour kid over the fence sending it on a jump. That afternoon he's building a sender.
Wife: Honey, what're you doing in the backyard?!
MAD: Nothing, just doing some yardwork! (Springstein's "Glory Days" blasting on his walkman)
Wife: Watch your sciatica!
MAD: I'm fine - I know what I'm doing!

wife posts video on PB...

 It's especially funny when I resemble that remark.

 You CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Just takes softer landings
  • 3 0
 I've never jumped into a mulch landing but it seems to inspire the false promise of a soft landing. Yes, people usually land on the mulch first with their bike but if you fall don't you just continue to bounce off your bike and onto the hard ground? And what about the wood posts sticking out on riders right? Seems safer to just build an actual dirt landing if your mulch pile can't be big enough...

-Someone who doesn't dirt jump

 $20 says he was guinea pig-ing that for his kid! Probably just built it; and possibly just scared his kid out of ever jumping it!

 @bmar: the last vertical post isn't even wooden...it's a hollow galvanized fencepost section. I see an abdominal core sample in someones future...

 @SpecSRAM: anti-roll mechanism ftw. You could hit that jump all day long and it'll never skip a beat.

 Middle Aged Dad for the win. Send it like you’re 45!

 @rrolly: I think it might have been Cliff Richard's "Wired for Sound" he was inspired by on his Walkman but confused sound for send.

Given his look.

No idea why on the double post.....
  • 39 7
 Here’s another rap let's start it off right
So buckle your lid and cinch it down tight
Grab your fingerless gloves and spread ‘em on your hands
I’m a one man show so screw the bands!

On top of the mountain ‘bout to conquer your fears
Feel the grip on your soul, you hold back the tears
Stomp your foot on the pedal, breath and exhale
You know you’re gonna crash, it’s Friday Fails!

Your riding is sketchy but the dirt is prime
Flyin’ down the slopes, you pick the worst line
Unaware to you there’s a trailbound grandma
You dodge her like the Matrix now you’re runnin’ like an outlaw

You slam into a tree and your head starts to ring
Bounce across the rocks and feel your back sting
You’ve broken all your bones, you lay there think
“That one guy on pinkbike is gonna make a rap about me”

Damn straight, son! I’m gonna sing about you!
You’re ground into a pulp, it's what I’s born to do!
I spit out these verses, your pain is my vice
I swear I’m not an ass, your girl says I’m nice

I’m an MC Cadillac, from Moab to Retallack
With the flow of Semenuk, and the pow’r of a bear attack
I’m lyrical prodigy, rhymes smooth as Slick Honey
I do it for the love I don’t do it for the money!

I sing these songs all about your crashes
Burned you so hard you sizzle to ashes
You think you got mad skills and say I’m whack
I’d love to hear your rap just try and fight me back

I ain’t scared, you’re as intimidating as a potato
I bet your rhymes are as lousy as your slow mo
So comment below and give me what you got
My skin is so thick I can take your best shot

 Some lessons there Orange pads have their own gravity field. You will bounce if you dotn have enough rebound. Wall rides can spit you off. Puddles can be deeper that they look. dont stand on the trail, Your mates can tell when you are gonna over cook it "That was it, I knew it was coming". Ha Nice friday fails!!!
  • 1 0
 Right!? Oh, you knew it was coming? You're cut out of the friend circle, smartass.
  • 14 1
 Loved the Friday Fails!!

Were there a bunch of repeats this time around? Come on Pinkbike users! Put some skin in the game and go ride so we can have more original content. Your pain is truly our gain.
  • 4 0
 I def recognized many repeats. I was confused and hoping I wasn't going crazy. Was hoping I would find someone else in the comments that had the same thoughts. haha.
  • 3 0
 True, but the guy disappearing behind the wood structure gets funnier every time I see it.
  • 2 0
 I have a few good ones. One got picked up but there’s a couple more ; )
  • 12 0
 WTF at 3:30? Get off the trail. Even if your partner goes down, get off the trail and tend to them from the side. Don't hang out chatting it up when the next rider could be just behind you.
  • 5 0
 They were looking to buy land, and didn't expect a mountain biker in the middle of the forest.
  • 5 0
 Bike park day I get caught and check up to let a pair by. 200 yards later they are standing in the trail on a semi blind spot. I was the next rider right behind you. What's wrong with people? Get off the trail.

 Dudes chatting in the middle of a jump line...C'MON MAN!!

 I think this one is funnier than some of the previous ones just because the crashes are less terrifying than they sometimes are.

 Entertaining as ever. This episode is missing the Eastern European clips where they yell "Kurwa!" though. I love clips where they yell "Kurwa!" There should be at least one person shouting "Kurwa!"in every FF video. There is not a single "Kurwa!"in this video. Why is there no "Kurwa!" in this video? :-)

 That dude at 0:53 got a fine from the manual showoff police!!!

 How many shoulders were separated in the making of this video? I mean I know its natural reaction, but so many outstretched arms. Learn to tuck and roll people!

 Is it me or is there a ton of riders that completely have their suspension rebound set too fast.
  • 1 0
 They dont take care of their bikes so there's little to no oil in the damper so they're essentially just riding around on a trampoline.

 3:30 - my pet peeve. get the f#@k off the trail. even if you crashed and you're in pain, have a flat, saw some wildlife, or whatever. You're gunna get other people hurt.
