 That guy who hit the corner of the wooden wall ride was NOT ok.

 That was gnarly for sure, I like the videos that make chuckle and are relatable to crashes I've had and have popped up from...that was not one of those type.

 At 1:26?

 That's the main trail at Skyline Rotorua where they have Crankworx. You have to almost purposely fuck it up to get anywhere near that wall. It's kinda baffling actually. Maybe he was attempting to clear it for shits and giggle but there's a huck to flat road behind that wall..... ....and god damn that looked like it hurt bad.

 @FurryCrew: He is completely out of control leading up to it. I don't think there is any way he was doing that on purpose. Definitely looked like it hurt.

 @FurryCrew: really? It looked like a random fence...

 It really didn't look THAT bad. Winded and hurting but nothing broken. Don't be such a fanny. These videos provide a much needed tug of gravity for the average man and dog.

 Try this one segment at 0.25 playback speed. The audio really comes to life, and you can follow him right over the wooden wall.

 @mountainsofsussex:

NP mate, That wall is there exactly for what he did, miss the previous corner and you can slam into the wall instead of going into the road and potentially getting run over by a random vehicle going by. I have no idea why he tried to "jump" over instead of just taking the hit.


EDIT: Actually after watching it in slowmo, he actually was going to miss the wall and JUST clipped it instead hence he went over the top.

 @pigman65: Mine is the guys following blindly each other and jumping out of the bikepark in chatel, that's a classic.

 @SickEdit: if you’re meaning the group guys who completely air over the drop away left hander & all end up in a heap on the grassy ski slope then I 100% agree. Fail of the decade (if not all time!)

 Too much weight on the front of the bike: HA too steep, CS too long, poor rider position, and/or braking (fork dive)...

 Off topic here, but can anybody tell me what that expression in what sounds like Russian I always hear in crash videos that sounds like "yeah boy" means?
  • 5 0
 I think it's a variation of "f*ck me" or "for f*ck's sake"
  • 6 0
 In transliteration it sounds like: "ebaat' ", it means : "fuuuck (something)"
  • 4 0
 I heard it from Croatian colleagues and it means "F*CK YOU". Written: "Jebo te".
  • 16 2
 It means roughly: Someone left a floater in the toilet and it's not going down.

 3:02 avoids the half foot wood drop and starts barreling towards a table, I just knew they were going to get bucked.

 Thank you, Pinkbike, for another great year of Friday Fails! The best way to start my workday.

 The shore is killin it.......and people

 Maybe im becoming numb to this but there was only 2 that barely made me wince. The other theory is that pinkbike has gone soft over Christmas. If this is the case, sort it out pb! I rely on this once a week to take the pain away !

 I prefer the "Teaches of Peaches" to deal with the pain.

 @Cheddar420: Much wisdom in that Peaches.

 The fact that I was there for the crash at 0:58 makes me feel honored. My dumb brother was the follower who went OTB

 This collection contains a lot of evidence that a shiny new Yeti will not make you a better rider!

 2:55 is like the perfect definition of just being a passenger. Also going OVER the wallride is an epic escape out!!!

 0:41 Darrington, nice! That dude hitting the wall ride lost ALL his air on that one, gut punch.

 A lot of riders made a good "case" for being on this edition of FF.
