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 June.

 I don't understand why some people don't wear a helmet. It should be like putting on a seatbelt, I feel
  • + 36
 then you can ask why people don't wear a seatbelt, stupid if you ask me...
  • + 104
 And that, students, is how Natural Selection works...
  • + 14
 I don't understand why some people don't wear chamois while riding. Its like women not wearing a sports bra, stupid if you ask me.
  • + 59
 I don't understand why we're not out riding instead, stupid if you ask me!

 When I read Russia, I guessed the guy was going to be drunk, aaaaand he was.

 I always wear my helmet in my own defense....

 @POWsLAYER Well OK you got me there.

 If you drink enough vodka you kinda need a helmet just for walking!
  • + 0
 It's exactly like putting on a seatbelt. Sometimes people do & sometimes people don't. :/ I wear my helmet way more than I'd ever wear a stupid fvckin' seatbelt. I ain't gonna be trapped in no burnin' or drownin' vehicle. Fvck that. Quit'cher fvckin helmet whinin' ya fvckin' pussy cvnt.

Haha @scott-townes, looks like she got you 3X for some reason. :s
  • + 1
 Scott-Townes, my dear friend , you have me completely mistaken. Im a pompous lad who pollutes PB with my thoughts and imaginations. I am merely saying what I think . It has no bearing on reality at all. No hard feelings Smile
  • + 54
 #8 takes the scake. That dude had all the bad luck in the world. Hope hes ok
  • + 14
 That massive OTB on #8 was brutal to digest. Ouch.
  • + 3
 Felt like the one that I would mostly do! Feeling the pain.
  • + 5
 #8 was the one that I thought : that could happen to me. I mean, if you're trying a backflip, you've got to expect some shit. But that guy was just flowing along and then BAM!

Coming soon in the Buysell: "All mountain frame, slight dent from 'transporting the bike'. My local shop says it's good to go".
  • + 4
 #8. So much potential for disaster.
  • + 1
 So brutal!
  • + 1
 I think I pooped a little watching that one.
  • + 7
 Never take the Rainbow Road shortcut, it's not worth the risk!
  • + 1
 Yeah I's gonna go with 5, then I saw 7, then I saw 8. Not just the gnar of it all, but the stupidity. Dude's ridin' down essentially a road, with a couple hills on it & it somehow put him on his head.

Totally been there bruh. Wink
  • + 15
 #2 Video + location = immediately reminds me youtu.be/NDsah1zm5ew?t=92

Superb NOSE DIVE!!!

Asian guys familiar with this trick.

If you french fry when you're supposed to pizza you're going to have a bad time
  • + 13
 #8 That just about the worst possible thing that could happen on Crank it Up
  • + 1
 A few more feet down the trail and that cut-off tree would've come into play in all kinds of unpleasant ways.
  • + 13
 2 So much faceslide
  • + 6
 #1 for me. Hilarious for everyone but the poor guy!

Number 7 should have realised something would go wrong when he started building a shitty, badly shaped sand jump and had watched too many videos of the pros
  • + 8
 #2. What a Joey.
  • + 7
 # 8 ..... that could have turned out to be horrific.
  • + 6
 8 looks like by far the most brutal. Crazy.
  • + 5
 Granted, it is the most brutal. However, it's more of a massive crash than a 'fail'. The result is obviously spectacular, but the mistake isn't as big as some of the others imo.
  • + 1
 Ya , did you see the boulder he hit. At least I think he hit it. That would suck!
  • + 1
 Sadly I've seen a few other crashes on that same run at whistler where the rider goes off the edge and lands on the trail below. Just glad it wasn't off the bridge he was coming up on.
  • + 0
 #8 Stop braiding the trails!!
  • + 6
 # 8 is brutal, but where did # 5 end up?
  • + 17
 Quite possibly in hospital.
  • + 4
 8 for brutality. 4 for the joint fail and comment in Polish that I guessed the meaning of without the above Polish translation!
  • + 5
 #4 Shcouriva! Anyone out there able to translate?
  • + 2
 It basically means B..., H...., Prost....., or whatever you would say Big Grin
  • + 10
 "oż kurwa" is what he actually said. Roughly translated, "oh, f*ck"
  • + 1
 "Nosz Kurwa" - "Nosz" isn't really an official word, you won't find it in any dictionary. In connection with Kurwa (f*ck) it would be close to: Oh, for f*ck's sake..
  • + 2
 O Kurwaa !! basically means Holy F*ck !! or whatever involves word F*uck :-)
  • + 2
 watch your mouths! Reads "Qrva" in English
  • + 6
 #4 should win just because the Polish sound so f*cking bad assed when they swear !
  • + 8
 A typical chat on scaffolding in your town goes more or less like that: sheshyshashotcha qrva choc sha sha chewo shoo soo che che qrva sha perdole shashe sha qrva ska sho cha qrva shad sho che she cho yebana
  • + 4
 haha i work in a mostly polish kitchen and i am well learned on the versatility of the word kurwa
  • + 3
 Man, 1-4 are some of the best I´ve seen...had me laughin out loud for a while, tough month they all are pretty good
  • + 1
 #8 Seems that the rider tried to show off manualing trough that pump section justo to get bucked over and down the cliff he went... I had a similar crash and dislocated my shoulder badly, will have to operate it.
  • + 3
 #8, pogoed off. Probably shouldn't be sitting down so much. 5 gets my vote for bravery but 8, what a fail.
  • + 1
 It looks like he popped a manual, then set it down right into the bottom of a roller. Combined with the speed, dramatic outcome!
  • + 2
 #8, getting pushed over the bike by the seat and launched towards boulders and trees.... nightmare tonite!
  • + 4
 #1 WHY ?!
  • + 1
 I looked down towards the water because I was afraid of getting caught in mud Smile
  • + 1
 I had a nasty fail of the month in whistler on Joyride. Cost me a grade 3 separated shoulder!

  • + 2
 Will be thinking about #8 on tues when I hit whistler. Crank it up is always my first run of the day!
  • + 2
 #8 brutal but #2 should win due to clearly having no chance from the off then pulling off a great penguin slide.
  • + 3
 Koury-vaaaaaaa....I have a new word when I crash...
