  • + 158
 Legend has it that the bike is still stuck between the two trees

 Like a sword in a stone!! Seriously though you would not pick that line, I could see it coming a mile off and I'm not even there riding the bike
  • + 3
 Yeah right, you could get most bars through that if you're pro at timing. He tried to go straight through lol
  • + 8
 @sewer-rat: And your ability to forsee the outcome was based solely on your riding experience and had absolutely nothing to do with the video title?
  • + 3
 Mr. Time Pro could do it.
  • + 134
 Only the best rider can pull excalibur from thy trees; and he shall forever sit on the saddle as the true king of the trails.
  • + 122
 Almost throwing a 1080, I don't know if you call that a failure
  • - 1
 Because he kept looking at the landing on his last rotation and woulda stomped it if he stayed fully committed Wink haha. He's soooo close, I hope he keeps going for it. By the looks of the vid, it looks like he'll have it with a few more tries... insane. and that Bender sender crash... holy shiiit. That's a huge gap to get nose heavy on.
  • - 3
 Not to mention it was oppo
  • + 32
 hahaha #3 maybe not the hardest crash ever, but it almost made my crying from laughing. Especially when the guy was trying to get his bike back, so positive
  • + 16
 Haahah the august winner must have been like, " ok whip, now ill throw a 360 in here, oh shit!" and the dude at the old rampage site ate shit hard!
  • + 15
 #5 wins. That was pretty gnarly.
  • + 11
 I'd be freaking out if my bike got stuck between a tree never know if that sucker is gonna come out again. #3 got my vote lol,

edit: or leave the bars behide all that behide lol.
  • + 12
 OWWEEEEEEE #5 FOR GNARLY FAIL #3 FOR COMICAL FAIL
  • + 11
 I couldn't stop laughing at number 3. How do you think he got it out?
  • + 9
 Slight mod. His bars went from 800mm wide to 750mm
  • + 15
 One of the trees went from 25ft down to stump...
  • + 8
 #5 for the win #3 for the grin
  • + 6
 #3, i,m surprised he didn't smash his knuckles into the tree
  • + 6
 could not stop laughing at number 3, too funny
  • + 3
 Dude getting his bike stuck was absoluely hilarious, but the guy in number 5 is definitly te most deserving of a prize here, the hucked that cliff like no tomorrow and almost made it.
  • + 3
 #3 wide bars require special attention. Sometimes you have to lift and turn, but usually it's mash your nucks and hope to stay on. Getting stuck though is crazy funny. No trees at Rampage, give er!
  • + 5
 what about Josh Regan's flip attempt? www.facebook.com/video.php?v=719434294796048
  • + 5
 Number tree ... err, I mean three!
  • + 4
 3. 5 is crazy but we have all seen nose heavy slams. I have never seen something like 3 before. Way funny.
  • + 5
 Defiantly number 3. Best fail when it's not a stack
  • + 16
 Only fail here is your spelling.
  • + 6
 oweeeeee Big Grin
  • + 2
 Easy to say in front of the pc but i think he would have pulled that 1080 if he had let his head in the rotation. He opened it a little bit to early and slowed the move down. Wish you good luck for the next time!
  • + 4
 The third one is not a crash, it is just parking. Whistler parking I would call it.
  • + 5
 #5 all the way. Dude sent it large!
  • + 1
 Number 4 was amazing, I love that sound when something breaks. Number 5 however must've been the most painful one, went proper flying...
  • + 2
 If I was number 3 I would take my bars off and leave them between the trees as a warning to other riders
  • + 2
 Leave it to the kid to suck dirt and jump up like nothing happened, that's awesome!
  • + 3
 There can only be one choice. NUMBER 3. So so funny.
  • + 3
 Number 3....what happens in Whistler, stays in Whistler.
