 Gnarlie Charlie takes the win for the randomness and clean front flip dismount.
  • 4 4
 must have been one good slurpee
  • 6 3
 #4 Do you like Wendys?

When dez nuts in yo face
  • 12 1
 what was the plan there, really flat jump to uphill landing?
  • 1 3
 Corpeo to max!
  • 4 2
 The flat to uphill landing is no problem when you fly that low and that far, there's nearly no impact there. The problem was that it seemed that he didn't do anything on the lip. If he would have bunnyhopped he could have made it.
  • 6 3
 idk if you know so I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt but its really hard to bunny hop a 40lb DH bike when the tranny is only like 3ft
  • 2 2
 When you're hitting stuff like that boosting off a lip is nothing that requires special skills. Much better than just rolling over it like he did. (if it's still not clear: I ment hit it like a kicker and not hit it like a drop)

 Not going to lie, this one should've wen included. Happened to the guy recently at a trail near me, he got totally messed in this!

 That was amazing and the fact that it's like a mini version of that line in Where the Trail Ends makes it even better. I laughed so hard, it was perfect.

 Trail gremlins, lil bastards.
  • 6 0
 not the best start to a run
  • 2 0
 He slipped a pedal while on the gas = trip over the bars. Lol
It just sent him forward unexpectedly and he couldn't get his weight back, got his bars turned and right over he went.
Snapping a chain while in full gas mode can have the same effect.

 #4. My kid was telling me about this jump and when I saw it I was like "nah, that's super sketchy nobody would ever actually try to hit it." Guess I was wrong. Hope dude is OK...that crash looked like something off Downhill Supreme.
  • 16 2
 #4 - Oh the buffalo jump in fish creek park. I've ridden (my brakes) down that sketchy piece, but never would have the guts to try gapping the water at the bottom. Saw the jump down there last week and though...hmmm...I don't see it working. Kudos for trying and for the great video.
  • 13 0
 I guess you did actually clear it...didn't even get wet!
  • 4 0

 Above Sikome lake, about 30 feet east from the antenna.
  • 17 1
 Number 2 is the clear winner here!

  • 15 2
 #1 that nac nac to combat roll was pure style
#4 perfect handspring
  • 11 0
 Number 4, best crash and an epic handspring
  • 8 1
 May's should get it again! It's horrible. Gotta give it to the guy cause he looked pinned too. Just hope he's recovering ok.

Out of the current vids. I'd say #1 for the dismount and #2 for the comedy. Hope all them are ok.
  • 8 0
 #2 Is the winner for the sheer randomness and massive hit to the poor guys dignity!

#4 and #5 are the most brutal. Hope you are all ok!
  • 11 1
 #2 DEFINITELY.
  • 9 0
 #4 because i filmed it
#2 pree great too tho
  • 9 1
 #2 purely due to the fact it was so unexpected!
  • 2 0
 I've ridden that line at #2 countless times and have no idea how he managed to crash like that.
  • 6 0
 Gotta give it to four for the build up and different angles building it up just to come up short...
  • 7 0
 I am so confused, like what just happened on #2. How do you even do that?
  • 8 0
 #3 was me haha
  • 3 0
 Legend!
  • 4 0
 No 2.....my best guess is that he was trying to skid his rear by breaking,except he wasn't riding his own bike on which the breaks were switched from left to right...how abt that?
  • 7 1
 NO. 2 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! soo funny
  • 2 0
 I feel like 3 should win just because not only did he fail but he also needs a new front wheel, give the guy a break haha.
Number 4 was awesome my vote goes for #4

Last months winner damn I didn't even seen the entries but that slow mo his body was ragged like crazy.
  • 6 1
 #2! What even happened there?!
  • 5 0
 #2 is swapped brake levers.

 #2
  • 6 1
 No.2 all the way !!

 #4 for the perfect dismount. That looked pretty soft.
  • 2 0
 Funniest - i think we can all agree on no.2. Most painful - probably no.5 or no.3
  • 3 0
 #3 should win just for that stellar reaction
  • 2 0

  • 4 2
 #4 Calgary, Canada. Represent my ridding buddy Keillen Ross.
  • 3 3
 Having had my share of WTF moments how does #2 go OTB on an apparent flat stretch. And #3's mates camera was jittery as he attempted to hold back his laughter. Too much.
  • 3 1
 Friend points go to video 3

 #1 you are going over that jump!!
  • 3 0
 #4 is better Wink
  • 2 0
 Can someone tell me why #2 started that slow down that quick?
  • 2 0
 Seems everybody this month opted for the front door!
  • 1 0
 Number 4#, so much speed down and when he finally gets to the jump there is no speed left
  • 1 0
 If were going for fails number 1 or 2 clearly have it. If were going for broken bones and carnage you can pick 3,4 or 5
  • 5 4
 The last one. That's the one !!
  • 3 1
 #4 - Calgary, Canada Smile
  • 7 0
 Yep, #4 has definitely my vote. The worst is that he did not even come close to clearing that river gap. He just might as well ride right into it.
  • 3 1
 number 4 is amazing Big Grin
