 If anyone isn't down with the Street Ramp Kid...well, you weren't a kid and/or you don't ride bikes. I don't know who gave him the pro-tip on landing on the lawn (kid road rash heals quick though), but that's offset with the dodgy balancing of the ramp in the gutter. And as a bonus, we will likely see Street Ramp Kid make repeat appearances here so we can follow along as his career progresses.

 Street Ramp Kid (TM) send it like a champ!
  • 14 1
 Uh, if you downvote me it's like you're downvoting The Street Ramp Kid himself. Whoever owns that minus 1 should show themselves...and prove they own a bike. Or were a kid.

 If that kid had a bowl cut haircut, then it was me circa 1995.
  • 8 1
 @alwaysOTB: Hey, Bowl Cut Kid, shut it, it's SR Kid's time now. Quit living in the past.
  • 4 1
 @iammarkstewart: Come on man, don't take his glory days from him. There's room in this world for BC Kid and SR kid.
  • 3 1
 @fast-n-loose-podcast: You're totally right. We're all in this together. To show I'm actually genuine, I didn't even downvote BC Kid. It hurt me so much when SR Kid got DV'd through me I couldn't bring myself to retaliate. @alwaysOTB , let's hug it out.

Everyone get a haircut and hit some grass!

 I mean shit, I'm still street ramp kid and I'm 33

 1:44. That guy eats it and that chick just keeps smoking her cig and doesn’t give a f*ck.
  • 3 1
 She was so casual about the whole thing!!!
  • 15 1
 In fairness, it was the 5th time that day Randy smashed his face into the ramp.
  • 8 1
 ...and if this doesn't sum up the entirety of my teenage years, I don't know what does?
  • 2 1
 @tbubier: Randy showboating for the ladies always gets him in trouble
  • 3 1
 That chick is the definition of "no f**** given"
  • 3 4
 @fast-n-loose-podcast: How irresponsible of her to take risks. Don't you know she could be taking up the hospital bed of a coronavirus patient????

 just another Tuesday afternoon for Debbie, a pack of American Spirits and watching the boys huck their meat straight into the transition. (not in frame, her tall boy of Steel Reserve)
  • 2 0
 @PNW66: You just made me slightly envious of Debbie. Nothing better than a pack of American Spirits and a tall Steelie.

 100% someones girlfriend who doesn't want to be there

 Ok not even done yet, but I was absolutely compelled to comment at only :22s in:

Awesome bike, check; carefully selected expensive colour-matched accessories like rotors, saddle, pedals, grips, etc, check; extra tube attached to top tube in clever way, check; probably something clever and expensive like EDC tool, check (wild speculation); complete lack of ability to hit a simple jump, check! DENTIST CONFIRMED.

 I had to watch that a few times, first time barely saw the fail, distracted by the worm on the camera.
  • 31 0
 0:25 - money doesn't buy skill on a bike.
  • 7 0
 Plus anyone who screams like that before a crash shouldn't be anywhere near a mountain bike.
  • 5 0
 @JamesGTi: absolutely. Obviously being on this reel they were all going to crash and burn but so many on this one were so obviously sketchy long before they crashed. That chap though could be the 'All the gear no idea' poster boy.
  • 2 0
 I watched that one like 5 times, as a coach it is absolute torture to watch, haha

 I can't decide if these characters should be sent to Physics class or to the gym for Core Day

 lol lol lol How did he even do that? It's like the intro... his front wheel suddenly weighed 5 tons.
  • 2 1
 Seriously that guy literally had no idea how to take a jump...
  • 4 0
 @mtbikeaddict: Grabs his brake, you can hear his real wheel skid right as his front wheel leaves the lip lol.

 "Dude. This stairwell huck looks sick except for that concrete wall that's attempting to impede my natural progression as a badass."

 Seriously. When can we get the “Oh Shit” sticker pack?

 if we were playing an "Oh Shit" drinking game, we'd all be dead.

 We have to make an agreement that next time we film anybody we have to shout "Bless you" if they crash.

 Never thought I’d see the voodoo child step up on here.
  • 8 0
 I mean, duthie has to make its appearance every week. Soon as the clip started I guessed it was gunna be the poppy little step up that got him, not the drop. That step up claims A surprising number of victims

 @Lester22291:

No shit got me in 2011, dislocated my shoulder.

 @Lester22291: I guess it does hide a little bit. Doesn’t look like much of anything dropping in.
  • 2 0
 Seriously though.. can we have a "Duthie Edition" of Pink Bike Fails. I swear there is enough content posted to make a solid 10 min edit. The last jump on HLC can be its own chapter in the film. Call it "A Tribute to Dead Sailors"

 1. Watch it 2. Realise you're weaker than the riders in the video 3. Stay home 4. Don't bother doctors PROFIT

 1:25 I cringed just seeing the camera POV.

 I could imagine Sam Pilgrim shouting "Stairset of doom!"
  • 2 0
 Yeah,you know that one will hurt! But nice fail,different..
  • 6 0
 I'm always amazed at the number of people that build kickers on flat ground. Are they so sure to reach orbit that any landing or slope would be unnecessary?
  • 1 0
 So absorb the landing... have you never been a kid? Razz

 ‘Natural selection a Friday’
These people are mostly halfwits with ideas way above their skills.

 The sounds effects are the best! Big Grin
  • 5 5
 I assume that this is the last Fail Friday for a while as there won't be any footage to post as none of us are riding at the moment, and especially not anything serious or dangerous as no one is stupid enough to be putting more pressure on their national health service!!
  • 8 4

 If someone is determined to fail they cannot be stopped.

 All my local trails are technically closed - but after watching so many people eat dirt, I guess that does help the cabin fever a bit. Not in the mood for dirt.
