 There's a fine line between making Fridays or Saturdays fame

 Yes, but it's impressive how many great non-pro riders are out there. Some of those were quite impressive!

 Friday fails should be moved to Monday, after we have all ridden, so we don't get those images in our heads during our weekend rides. Also, Send it Saturdays should be moved to Friday, to help us visualize success, so we can attempt our one foot drops.

 Seriously had the same thought! Though, as someone who spends a fair amount of time at the bike park in my back yard (Ruby Hill, Denver), the backflips and 3’s are not all that common.

 Don't worry, these are all deepfakes, I made an endo the other day, 1987 called and asked for it back.

 I literally don't care how big or gnarly the send is, I just want to see people stoked as hell when they stay on their bike.

 Saturday Saves should have followed Friday Fails.

 We’re playing with the idea of Sunday Saves. Stay tuned!

 @jasonlucas: some of the obvious intros that come to mind might offend the religious types amongst us. Tread carefully!

 @jasonlucas: To the extent that religion has messed up our world to date, I wouldn't be too concerned with offending the God fearing religious type.

 Me too. Then I discovered Pinkbike.

 Would it be possible to put ALL the vertical videos first, then ALL the horizontal videos after? Or vice versa? Crazy annoying to keep rotating the phone / table back and forth while watching !

 Damm! There are senders walking amongst us mortals. Nice.

 That huck at 1:05... Yeeeow!

 1:44 was backflip into the space Smile

 It looked like a 12 foot super lip. That guy had a ton of convidence and probably rides moto. I can't see how you would progress into a jump that big.

 I wonder if anyone else noticed this: Only #1 and #5 have appeared on my Pinkbike feed. I see there are a few others on Youtube only..

 What I love is that we all take pleasure in watching our mates stack it big time (providing they're unhurt of course!) and equally the elation of watching your mates conquer a line/jump/gap is also awesome! I think it's a bloke/mate thing.

 "we want to celebrate the riders landing large gaps, drops, and tricks". How about adding in gnarly climbs, and crazy descent sections too (saw a few of the latter in this vid which was awesome). I'd call those sends just as well.

 Sends are incredible though fails are more relatable to me!

 Ok, maybe someone already suggested!! But how about “Sunday Saved it”? I mean, we already have Friday fails and Saturday sends.

 Friday makes me feel like a great rider then Saturday smashes any feeling of superiority i've ever had. So many riders out there that are infinitely better than I'll ever be, love this new mash up.

 More stuff like 2:56 please

 Yes. But in horizontal mode and reasonable angle.

 some of these clips were a speed-wobble away from being viewed a day earlier

 The only time my hands come off the bars, mid ride, is when things are heading for Friday viewing

 Saturday Stomps and Sunday Stacks would be better for my mind. Starting weekend seeing all the things that could go wrong holds me back (being older and risk conscious)!

 Friday fails had you thinking "woah people suck at riding bikes !!!", but then this... Seriously, some very good sends from "nobodies", congrates to all the senders !

 The gap at 47 seconds is a from a kid kinda local to me, only 13 years old, bloody impressive!

 I think this is my only issue with Saturday Sends. I know its new... so I want to provide some feedback. I prefer an equivalent to Friday Fails... meaning, I prefer everyday riders on mountain bikes. There are many in these segments, but just as many pro level, or non MTB cuts. I'm not interested in the back flips, 360s, and no handers. I want more regular rider sends, drops, and steeps.

 @Baller7756: I agree, but on the other hand I'm not sure I could handle a compilation of r/MTB Baby's First Three Foot Gap posts. They still have to be somewhat impressive.

 @Baller7756: vast majority of riders don’t get their tires off the ground, let alone send it

 @ahauck: No doubt that your statement is correct... but there are so many riders that the sheer numbers dictate that there are thousands "sending it" every week. The issue is if they are recording it, and if they are Pink Bikers or not.

Maybe an info splash on the screen would be cool too (a little rider, bike, and location info).
