 Crashing is thirsty work.

 Did the guy in the car say "you held on to your drink though, right?"
  • 6 0
 Ha! I thought the same thing. At first I thought he was trying to show iff while drinking but then I realized the crash was just his way of getting his bottle.
  • 2 0
 Was thinking that too! Angry dude with water bottle!

 @rcrocha: This crash would never have happened on a frame without bottle mount. Why all bikes need a bottle mount.

 @mountaincross: Sounds like an ozzy saying: "How the f*ck you holding your drink bottle Bro"

 Dear Robin, or Brian...or whomever:
Please do a separate Friday Fails with Rob Warner and maybe Wyn Master commentating and dissecting the fails...and mostly mocking them. Preferably with them enjoying the adult beverage of their choice to avoid them holding anything back.

 Hmmm Cathro & Matt Beer would be good for this, but they might be too kindhearted. It'd definitely require some wobbly pops.
  • 5 0
 That would be almost like with that Aussie comment dude on YT

Here an example

 @Flunt: Good old Ozzy Man. He is bloody good at what he does. If you educated him about MTB and then got him on Pinkbike it would be such a good episode!

 I’m always a little happy when someone with who rides with a bluetooth speaker takes a digger…

 Comment gold right here

 Warms the heart eh?

 @1:30 is still my favorite...guy went HUGE!
[On a side note...you could have simply put the gravel bike fail on repeat for this edit and I would have been fine with that]
  • 2 0
 Hell yeah, that was epic! It's either that one or the tomahawk at 7:34 for fail of the year!
  • 2 0
 This was fkin insane omg, that hang time omg, i am amazed.. and he probably would have been fine if he decided not to bail, that would have been epic
  • 2 0
 I was waiting for that clip, and it was just as jaw-dropping this time. The way it pans over and he just keeps flying, and flying. He starts trying to bail a good 50 feet before the landing.
  • 5 0
 My 9 year loved that one. She said run it back, and when we replayed she belts out “I believe I can fly!” Lol.
  • 2 0
 @freeinpg: that 7:33 because he just plowed full speed through so many people and then crashed so epic
  • 2 0
 I will remember that over/under jump forever. He pumps the bike like 3 times, pushed it away and then gets in 2-3 swims, a Barney Rubble and an Olympic floor tumbling routine where he cleanly sticks the landing

 The content we deserve. Thank you PB for a great year, and all failers for your generosity sharing your misfortune!

 Great compilation.

Can’t help but notice that Wall-Ride-Launch-Kid didn’t make the cut. Is that because his Dad still hasn’t found him?
  • 5 1
 Different reactions:

Riders in this video: Ahhhh f*ck
Riders watching: That's gonna hurt
Paramedics: Damn O.O - more customer.
Bike helmet MFG's: We're doing the lord's work.

 Some of those tree attacks were brutal - and totally without any provocation that I could see. Innocent folks just out riding their bikes and ambushed for no reason. People should have listened to Reagan when he warned us about all the harm trees do. Cut them down before they kill us all.

 Big respect to those who can send it properly. I can't so these videos hit a little too close to home :-D

 Thank you for all the false confidence that made these all possible.

 Gravel clip was me! Yes!!! Be safe be well, Incognito Robin

 Before I watch, I have to ask - did my Ibis do the job?
  • 1 0
 It seems like a lot of people are sending things that their bikes seem a little old or to "low end" for, don't get me wrong, i love people sending scetchy things, but take into consideration that maybe your bike isn't going to handle the impact very well
  • 1 0
 1:30. The Friday that one popped up I had my new definition of ‘sending it’. Usually you have no time to think when it all goes wrong but this guy has like a half minute* to savor the upcoming reunion with the ground.
*I know it was actually like three seconds but damn.

 The next best thing to all the crashes are the expletives in various accents and languages

 Can I get an upvote for all the deceased mariners.

 I still think the rider at 7:33 pulled a dick-move trying to blast through the crash scene there.....
  • 1 0
 Yea I watched that one a couple times to even see if he tried to hit the brakes. It looks like he did at the last second but it seems like he was originally just going to try and plow through.

 Instant karma! She's a b*tch at least we got to watch

 Holy Tree Huggers & Lawn Darts Batman!

Most impressed by 3:34. Eject bike mid back flip then land on feet and run it out. The guy must be part cat.

 Seems to be numerous A-Line crashes. Caption should be when you thing you have graduated from Crank It Up only to get slapped down.

 4:37-- Henry's or Jason's bike???

 Thought the same. Lightly used.

 There are two kinds of friends in this world: The kind who, after you crash horribly, will ask "you good?". The other kind will laugh hysterically.
  • 1 0
 2:40 guy landing on his buddy...........that's just nasty. Word of advice don't crash with anybody following because you may survive the crash but what's coming next might be worse.

 I forgot just how brutal some of these were.

 Slightly premature "nice" followed by imminent impact with tree.

 Levy hasn’t had a chance to retouch the picture of his feet yet. Pretty certain that was the grand prize this year.

 The trees were not going easy.

 You can't blame all of that carnage on trees - it wasn't a tree that attacked the guy at 3.53. Aliens maybe?

 OK! everyone! gimme your count of the number of trails/features you have succesfully navigated that you saw someone fail at here! my number is 4.

 I particularly enjoy the freeway pileups of idiots following eachother too closely.

 I’ve never really understood why so many riders don’t wear any knee protection.

 Perfect musical pairing at 4:38! The song playing is "hit the road Jack" as he plows his face into the dirt.

 Spectacular. More dead sailors than a World War 2 flick.

 The pile up at 7:33. What the shit!
  • 1 0
 In my humbly unhumble opinion I would say 3:35 is not a fail.

 If you adorn you bars with toys of any sort, such as a rubber chicken, you deserve to crash in horrific fashion. Daily.
