 no doubt. what happened to that guy, it's like he was shot by a rifle the way he went down. couldn't figure it out. vine grab his brake lever or something?

 @jamesbrant: Looked like there was a little square edged ledge that you had to get the front up quickly for... but don't think he timed it well. Kinda also looked like his back wheel hit another little ledge at the same time which I think is what stopped his bike so abruptly and sent him down so hard and quick.

But ya, I was confused at first...

 Cheers to the girlfriend laughing at the guy who wipes and rolls in the scree field. She's clearly seen him take a beating before. My wife would be freaking if I wrecked like that in front of her.

 The conversation prior to this:
Dude: I totally got this.
GF: Are you sure? I don't think this is a good idea.
Dude: Babe, I toootally got this. Just hold the camera. . .

 My dude walks it off like a champ tho

 Guy was pretty close to pulling it out. That was an awesome gap.
  • 2 0
 @NorCalNomad: Pretty sure that's the gap at the parking lot of Bootleg Canyon.
  • 5 0
 @whwv: You know it's a bad idea to hit a gap that's next to a parking lot. It's that close for a reason.
  • 3 2
 He hardly ‘wrecks’, he skids and rolls off his bike. Looks a lot like one of those fun crashes that makes you laugh at yourself.

 Every single time I watch FridayFails, it triggers the exact same existential crisis where I'm questioning all of my life choices. Really, this is what I do? Flirt with disaster on my overpriced stupid bike out in the woods?

 I usually only ride on both of my days off and absolutely will not watch Friday fails until I'm done riding for the weekend.

 Whoa....whooooooa
  • 3 0
 that was the best reaction

 Almost equal surprise that he made the first feature and expected the fail at the second.
  • 23 1
 Alot of these could have been avoided if the people stayed cleared off the whole "mountain biking", thing....

 Yeah but then what would we have to watch on Friday?

 I hope PB will post a "best of 2019 FF" video, maybe with some slo-mo scenes for us tech idiots who can't slow it down ourselves

 Why set your sights so low? It's 2019, I'm holding out for best fails of the decade.
  • 9 0
 If nothing else, I'm honestly impressed with the amount of people getting out there and trying this stuff even if this time was a fail. Good for the people of Friday fails for committing and going for it!

 Has the guy at 2:00 been saving that clip since the 90's? Those bars!

 so much inexperience on jumps!! and what are ya doin sending your kids down jump trails when they don't even know which brake is the front or back. deadly!!
  • 5 4
 I watch these weekly. The question, or maybe just realization, is increasing clear.

Modern day MTB is just, dunno, riding down mellow hill at super slow speeds, barely turning, mostly skidding, and/or 'shredders' with zero clue on how to get a front wheel higher than the back.

Y'all need to take up badminton

 Easy, Your gonna piss off all the gapers

 @getsomesy: Wtf is a gaper when it’s at home?
  • 3 0
 @tobiusmaximum: a gaper (noun):- a novice or beginner to an extreme sport. Identified by the ‘gaping’ gap of their forehead exposed due to their poorly fitting safety helmet.

 Nasty as usual. (I am still wondering why I keep on looking a it, while I continuously try to convince me everything will go well when I am on my bike)
Seth's bike hacks fail in latest video deserves to end here.

 0:49 dude went down like a sack of potatoes! Felt bad for laughing but had me dying. Hopeful he's not concussed...
  • 2 0
 That looks like a nice place... for smashing your face.
  • 1 0
 how???? how did they fall?? did I miss the dude hiding in the river, jumping out and and grabbing his front wheel?
  • 3 0
 2:29 - just a little more rotation and he would have landed the unintentional front flip!
  • 4 0
 He had it, if it wasn't for that stupid stick!

 Is the dog okay?

 Apparently this was Faceplant Friday. That wreck by the river at 0:50 and the jump to faceplant at 1:33, amongst the other faceplants in the video compilation just looked aweful.

 This week's lesson: wear a full face helmet near a camera. +10 for the great form crotch-trap endo at 2:34 and the YEAUUH! crowd reaction.
  • 1 0
 How is it that NO ONE pulls up on the jumps? Everyone goes OTB. I always thought it was human/2nd nature to pull up and absolutely no one grasps that. I’m completely flabbergasted.
  • 3 1
 1:59 minute bar width. No complaints that the wide bars are causing shoulder pain.

 Dirt Roadie strikes again!
  • 3 4
 Something tells me it wasn’t his first time... and not the last time either. I bet the conclusion was “I don’t know what happened”.

 For a second it looked like a clip from the late 90's

 My favourite clip from this week. Now remember kids, always lock your arms and legs out completely when going downhill.

 Yeah, looks like lunchlady, you can see the rope between cat's paw and the access road at the end.

 I've never seen a Friday Fails without a Whistler Bike Park trail in it!!! i'd take a dollar per crash which happens on WBP every summer season! i'd be freaking RICH

 The crash at 1:40 is Whistler, no?

 @emarquar: the kid dropping.... YESS

 riders are somehow making mistakes.. Their friends laying their bikes right next to jumps waiting for you to be impaled in the handlebar is way worst imo...

 Ad should be like: Full Face Friday! Now 50% off your next full face purchase to prevent you from face planting into delirium.

 2:32...not sure trampolines are necessary features. But they're going to be, better get your rotation on.

 Pretty sure the 0:49 mark is "What the Chuck" on Back 40 in Arkansas. It's sketchier than it looks, but damn!

 Oak Mountain!
  • 1 0
 1:20 mark? I thought that looked like the beginning of Lightning.
More trails need features like that at the start with a sign that says "if you can't clear this feature, the rest of this trail is over your head".
  • 1 0
 Oak Mountain is a fine park. I'd move to Birmingham just to be near it.
  • 2 0
 @JohanG: I just moved to Huntsville and everyone keeps telling me it's amazing. To be fair I've been impressed with Monte Sano. I've never lived near this type of terrain. It's breaking my fat ass in.

 DAMNIT CAYDEN! how dare you crash!!! What was that guy’s deal?
  • 1 0
 Maybe it was cameraman's bicycle Maybe cameraman pays cayden's medical bills Maybe cameraman is some sort of guardian and told Cayden to not be reckless Maybe Cayden does this all the time but promised this time it would be different Just off the top of my head.
