 Who needs a vasectomy when you have mountain biking?

 @rrolly: my brother still had an old mongoose hard tail on his garage work a triangle top tube, we call the crotch cleaver

 Also...that backflip had zero fails. That was 100% winning.

 It was a bit like the pinkbike field test, small kicker = broken pole

 Stems and top tubes definitely took the win over ballzacks this week.

 I've had my fair share of FF moments & I'm no Danny Hart, but some people just shouldn't be on a bike ...
  • 18 1
 I think that every time I watch FF, how do your bars twist out of your hands when just riding down a trail?
  • 3 0
 My thoughts exactly.

 @mtbikerbob: Some of these people are along for the ride. YOU control your destiny, people.

 I had one friend have this happen to him. Riding uphill on an otherwise smooth rockface, hit a groove (think 1cm deep) and in no time flat the bars twisted and bucked him violently from the bike. Pretty narly outcome.

This guy is a great rider, and has been on the bike for a couple decades. To this day I can't figure out how it happened. I guess it can happen to anyone if one relaxes too much.

 Give them a break, most of them are on a road to get somewhere. The last week was the most pathetic crashes compilation. I can see my former self in half of these fails.

 @endlessblockades: So true. Too many people treat the bike like a self-driving vehicle.

 I’m torn, the riders with the gear and gnar always have the higher impact offs, but the ghoulish part of me prefers the slower crashes of the innocent riders, in the fleecy job bottoms and p!ss pot helmets, assuming all in the world is good, this is just cycling, right, and what could possibly go wrong.......oh.

 @Malky79: all the gear no idea
  • 2 0
 I prefer the ones in all the gear (usually too much and ill-fitting) that still have the most epic crashes.

 The law of riding bikes is there's a 97% higher crash rate if you wear pads over pants

 That backflip guy really stuck the landing.

 @johnyyy: with all due respect for your knowledge of your native language but the correct Polish translation of “are you ok?” shouted during a crash is: “O kurwa zyjesz?” Or “Ja pierdole”

 You mean the one where the idiot had the whole f*cking world to steer into but chose to ride directly into that guys f*cking head?
  • 46 0
 @deadmeat25: Man, there were about twenty frames between the front wheel hitting the ground and the front wheel hitting the rider. We can assume for the last five or six he's pretty well committed to his line and probably just hammering the brakes. The video is at 30 FPS so that puts him in the ballpark of about 0.4 seconds to land the damn thing, regain control, correct for the knee-jerk bar pulling he did mid-air, and redirect away from a rapidly approaching moving object. Cut the dude some slack, alright?

 If they fixed their GoPro angles, most of these would be avoidable. Big Grin hahahah....not

 I'm still surprised we don't see more fails from these janky-ass wood features collapsing under the weight of the 37lb children that are riding them.

 2:09 got sucked into the never-ending vortex. Dizzy AF.

 I think his head came clean off

 The guy behind his gf or wife at 2:22 - clearly she is gong too fast and has no control - it was inevitable. He just let her ride without telling her to slowdown. He's a fail.
  • 29 6
 GF or wife? The only 2 possibilities. Also, as the person filming is a guy, we know his riding skills to be far superior to that of any female, therefore it was clearly his job to determine the safe speed for her to ride at. Hopefully he said "my bad" before sending her back to the green skills loop for more practice.
  • 2 1
 Lol that's SkillzwithPhil mang. She probably thought she was holding him up, and lost focus...my 2 c. Common feeling, in a mtb park train!
  • 30 0
 1) That is me, not @skillswithphil
2) That's my wife and this was her on Upper Dominion trying to "pop" the jumps more, hence the sketchiness. Part of learning is finding where that line is on your own and inevitably you might crash. I'm proud of her for always trying to improve her skills. She killed the 7ft drop after this set of jumps

 @Malky79: Dude. Not everything has to be seen through a social justice lens. It was clear from the video that the individual in front was going to fast for their skill level, as witnessed by the resulting crash. The other individual behind the first may or may not have known the capabilities of the leading rider, true. However, if the second individual had been riding with the lead individual before, the second individual indeed is somewhat at fault for not advising the lead individual to slow down.
