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. Accidentally crashes are part of our sports. 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 October.

 So I guess pinkbike can do vertical videos now... doesnt work so well on desktop.
  • + 13
 quick tip hold ctrl and scroll your mouse wheel to zoom out video, still bad format but at least you can fit it on the screen
  • + 7
 Unless, a side ways monitor is evident!
  • + 114
 Can't tell if the fail is for the crash or the vertical video!
  • + 9
 It actually works better if you click on the "view full screen" button, somehow it becomes sized correctly.
  • + 12
 Send this to the guy who filmed it.

 Or this video about Vertical Video Syndrome!

 It seems that a person complaining on format and quality of a fail video is likely to buy a 72" LCD to improve his pornhub experience
  • + 5
 Yeah, that video orientation is the real fail of the month.
  • + 3
 IFHT FTW
  • - 3
 #6 what a pussy
  • + 8
 yeh, but he broke his finger...
  • - 4
flag Gilmarques (Nov 5, 2015 at 1:56) (Below Threshold)
 yeah, but he started screaming when he was still in the air... and he could hang that bike because it wasn´t that short.. but you know what? he broke his finger so #nomorefingerf*cking
  • + 4
 I rode it out the first time and lost traction the second time... Still don't think that makes me a ***** @Gilmarques
  • + 63
 i watch these videos on my laptop and my dad sits down beside me and catches a glimpse of one. "Theres gotta be a couple paraplegics from this sport eh?"
  • + 96
 #toosoon
  • + 23
 sorry never thought of that until now
  • + 5
 why is it too soon ? What happened ?
  • + 19
 Paul Bas - he injured his spine at Rampage
  • + 9
 well, your dad is right mate, Martyn Ashton is on a wheelchair, and maybe how many guys that are not that famous. Paul Bas is doing stands now, I don't know how he does it since he still doesn' feel his legs from the knees down instagram.com/p/9ezn9agnp9
  • + 4
 I'd say that was perfect timing then
  • + 5
 hi, i'm quadriplegic, does that count?
  • + 5
 @JoseBravo don't forget Tarek Rasouli....
If there were ever a paraplegic hero of our sport, it is him.
  • + 2
 @JoseBravo My dad had a stroke a few years back and can't feel anything on most of his left side, still has plenty of strength in his arm and leg though, its just numb, guess it could be the same with Paul
  • + 1
 I think it’s good for the sport to show that people do lose use of limbs and worse. Makes you think twice before hitting that gap or flip you got so pumped to hit after watching a pro do it without spending the time to gradually progress to a pro’s level. Yes, you CAN get seriously mangled.
  • + 36
 #4 just keeps comin back for more!
  • + 19
 agree - #4 sherwood park had the best stacks, but I'm pretty sure #7 Bath UK had the most damage - that had to be separated AC or broken collarbone...
  • + 1
 #4 head case though
  • + 4
 Classic hucker #4. Decent talent + pro courage = Lots of epic wrecks. Reminds me of myself 10 years ago as a 23 year old skier. Agreed #7 clavicle is f'ed. #6, the taint pain dance. Hilarious.
  • + 4
 i'm wondering if his testicles hired an attorney...
  • + 24
 #7 easily.. #4 was going huge though
  • + 6
 #7 hit a tree, #6 hugged a tree after he got up lol
  • + 21
 #7 is a sending off offence....leading with the shoulder and no arms in the tackle! Red Card!
  • + 8
 looked like an aussie tackle to me....
  • + 6
 This rugby joke is going to soar over most American's heads. I dig it though. To the sin bin.
  • + 21
 Ultimate fail goes to the person who still doesn't realise it's best to film in landscape mode.
  • + 15
 #4, clip 1. Perfection in a fail.
  • + 6
 100%. It's the shit legends are made of
  • + 5
 Clip #7 -Yeah, brutal.

I know Fergus has a ****** shoulder, this may have been the crash that caused it. Not sure how old the clip is.

Theres another video of him dislocating it and popping it back in here - youtu.be/xP7NM6ATlU0 - Crashes are at the end.
  • + 5
 Fergus stared that tree down something fierce. Hope he didn't get too beat up - that was hard to watch!
  • + 7
 That link isn't Fergus, it's my boy Mike. Fergus is at the start smashing berms with us!
  • + 5
 yeah thats me popping my shoulder back in on that link Smile
  • + 1
 i wanna know where this is! i live about 20 mins away!
  • + 2
 Ah! I saw it come up on Fergus' FB feed and didn't realise you'd shared it!
  • + 2
 You want to know where the Alps are?
  • + 1
 I'm guessing he means Fergus' clip. It says Bath, UK in the PB vid title.
  • + 1
 Yeha but where in bath?!
  • + 6
 It's between #4 and #7 for me. #4 is an absolute beast, just plain honey badger status. But that tree really on #7 really leaf'd him for dead...
  • + 5
 I was riding with Fergus when #7 crash happened. Was gnarly, the screams after were brutal.

He was jokes on gas and air later though.
  • + 5
 #6 My sides hurt
#7 Sneaky arsed trees, jumpin in the way to try to kill a fella. OUCH!
  • + 3
 #6 cause that jump is fairly sketchy in the first place lol, hitting it requires gaining a lot of speed with (what I would call) a poorly planned run in. Plus spirit mountain is my stomping grounds!
  • + 5
 #6 because I know him!!!!!
  • + 5
 hahahaahahahahahah #6s dance
  • + 4
 I think for the pure genius of the commentary it has to be #2 " Oh ........ Oh ..............Shiiiiiiiit" Brilliant
  • + 1
 The dude in Bath is the poster-child for 'don't try this at home'.
Looks like he saw someone on the web simply whip-turn, so all you need to do is throw your bike sideways before you land, and bingo-boffo you ride out 90-degrees to your take-off, RIGHT?
  • + 3
 No,7 for sure, especially because it had the Ride it out logo on screen,no-one's riding that one out! Welcome to several months of very sore shoulder.
  • + 5
 #6 "I think I broke my pecker"?
  • + 3
 #6 Because I know him! Charles Young broke his pinkie and injured a couple other fingers.
  • + 2
 "I think I broke my finger."
Been there. When you feel/hear it break but it doesn't hurt much yet because of the adrenaline...
No fun.
  • + 3
 Pinkiebike.
  • + 3
 I dislocated my middle finger not pinkie
  • + 4
 6 and 7 won't play on my ipad Frown
  • + 2
 #7 he is my son, it dislocated his shoulder and severed his nerve - the slow I sound of his pain are the worst part or me to experience......
  • + 4
 I'd give it to #4 for sure....made me cringe on every one....goddam
  • + 4
 #ISTHATATREEEEEE??? I hope it's gonna move of the trail
  • + 4
 #7 was insane, he just stopped

  • + 3
 RIP Fergy's collarbone (#7)
