We've all been there: It's the rock roll you've done a thousand times before, that one off-camber root section, or maybe it's your first time hitting a brand new drop - you crash. Accidental crashes are part of our sport. EVOC certainly don’t want you to provoke crashes for this competition but they would like to keep you safe on your next adventure by dishing out prizing for the best fail of each month. Here are our picks for August.

 #7, oh f*ck that was stupid. dude, you can't just ride straight off of ledges!

  • + 7
 Have you taken it off any sweet jumps?

 A lot of these would be ok if they used some upper body strength.
  • + 2
 I often feel the same, like when a dude could be using both of his dicks instead of just one.
  • + 9
 Pinkbike should of played a joke on themselves on how they failed to post these videos sooner
  • + 9
 Perhaps the backpack should go to PB for failing to post this at an appropriate time

 Nice to see mostly bone friendly OTBs. Rare I make it through one of these without a stomach dropping cruncher.

 Slo-ver The Bar

  • + 1
 And the one in #3. Not the rider. His "friend" stopping in the middle of the trail right after the jump. No wonder he went OTB. There was nowhere else to go, haha!

 Wrong ailment dude, sleep apnea means you stop breathing while you are sleeping.
