 PSA: When people talk about ragdolling during a crash to stay loose, they aren't saying "do nothing and hit the ground like an uncooked hamburger patty falling off a counter".
  • 5 1
 What kind of beef patty are we talking about? 80/20? 95/5?

 Got a good batch this week. Watch a pro video - and you know you ride like crap - watch these and you'll feel a lot better about your riding. (for most?)

 I have to give props to people who are learning on really capable bikes. If you learned to ride in the 90s like me, the awful bikes gave you regular warnings that they couldn’t handle much or go crazy speeds. Now though, with big travel, big wheels and long wheelbases, it’s so easy to get in big trouble if you don’t know what you’re doing. I’m sure someone will say ‘yeah but the bikes are more capable, so they easier to ride’ but basically they can go so much faster now.

 As they say, 'it doesn't get easier, you just go faster'. And indeed, that also means you just crash harder.

 Nothing better than watching a grom slamming into the ground while he doesnt know he has it so good

 Ahh yes....we call that the Full Ibis.

 Need a little more PMA at 3:22 there, she began the panic with the rubber side down!
  • 12 0
 Yeah even before she crashed her audible "AAHH!! = I GIVE UP" really set her up for failure. A real life lesson there. haha

 @ncrider5: I laughed when her boyfriend (or friend) just let's out a "Shit..." of despair. He's gonna hear about this one Forever haha

 @alexridesbikes-13: Right!! I’ve still been hearing it 10 years later “you never told me to take my feet off the pedals before the jump”......

 When you stare at the rock in the middle of the trail (3:20), you are going to hit it. Also, bike vs tree, tree always wins.
  • 16 0
 I've teamed up with my bike and defeated one tree. It wasn't huge, but you can score at least one for the good guys.
  • 1 0
 I appears even cut trees {logs) can win as well.
  • 1 0
 Rider at 3:20 lacked the basic strength and fitness needed to be on that trail. Clearly had no control over the bike at all, no body English, just stare down the obstacle and drill it.
  • 2 0
 @RonSauce: I bounced of a big one and took out a sapling on the other side of the trail - mark me down for one too.

 @lake-st: Aye, even a decapitated tree still has the ability to main murder and kill while it plots it's revenge.

 03:08 - Trail forks off in two directions - "Left or right? Left or right! Stuff it, split the difference".

 That last one, not the crash I thought it would be...must have been the relief of making the rock roll and drop that caused the lapse in concentration... classic, I could a most hear “yay go me.....oh f**k!”
  • 18 1
 After the DROP sign, I guess there should have been one that said TURN.

 Yes, it's Friday. Hey Pinkbike, how about a best of Fails that we can all vote on. Keep the sick minded among us entertained.
  • 5 0
 Well at 2:24, that clip was used about a month ago in the Friday Fails, so it must qualify if good enough to use twice
  • 1 0
 @blowmyfuse: good spot!
  • 8 0
 A great selection. I like the ones where you know they just shouldn't be on a bike.

 First guy shouting “Oh My God” sounds like he’s in a US sitcom and has just found a pizza

 Just the drama queen you do not want after a crash .
  • 1 0
 That sounded more like a "Dad " sitcom shout to me....
  • 2 0
 He should be hit with a stick.
  • 2 0
 @cirque4: haha thanks. For context, he doesn't crash very often and I ran up and laughed at him right after.

 3:00 - I've never seen a tree pull a PIT maneuver on a bike before... they're getting aggressive.

 Yesterday rider coming my way goes OTB. Its the first day on my new bike he says. 4k Specialized. We were the only people out. Get to the lot to find a new still temp plate F150 and 1k worth of bike rack. Today on Craigslist. Kuat 4 bike rack and bike with one ride on it. Guess he is keeping the truck.

 Yo @pinkbikeoriginals given we’ve now established it’s impossible to get punters to all hold their phone in the same direction while filming their buddies eating shit, can we at least arrange the Friday Fails compilations such that all of the landscape clips and then all of the portrait clips are grouped together, maybe with a “turn your phone vertical like a squid rolling a rock drop” warning?

 “Ya dude! Full commit! Full commit!”

 I just love the “You ok?” There is one every week. 2 or 3 this time. Natural I suppose.

 love how they always ask in less than a second of them hitting the ground...never gets an answer

 0:33 - pinkbike with a little Friday fail moment of their own. Pro tip: listen to the audio on the clips you post before you post them.

 @twd953: Yeah I wondered if I heard what I thought I did- I'd be curious to hear from someone who speaks the language.

 i thought that was just me...

 @snl1200: might be something else in a different language tho?

 So the f word is ok but the n word is going to far? lol
  • 7 2
 @coolj43: sounds reasonable to me. But if you dont like the f word you can scratch both from you vocabulary and nobody would have a problem.
  • 4 0
 I'm german, he says "Digger" which in german means something like dude ... no n word in the friday fails Wink
  • 2 1
 @Stokedonthis: I don't speak German, but if that is the case then my apologies. Not afraid to admit it if I was wrong.
  • 1 0
 @RonSauce: I dont use either but thst kids play by play of that crash was hilarious, probs why they kept it in there
  • 4 0
 @brokemywristbyfallingoffmybike: For sure- that's what I was getting at. I know when I used to play Rugby the first time I went to Australia and played against Maori's I felt like every time they did the Haka it was just an excuse to say a bunch of F words to us not knowing that "Whaka" ("Wh" pronounced like "F") or similar words were common in the language. Sounds like @stokedonthis has confirmed!
  • 2 0
 @Stokedonthis: Thanks. I couldn't even make out what language it was, I speak some German but 'Digger' I had not hear of before.
  • 2 0
 @ak-77: its slang, not in your typical german lesson, i guess Wink i also only understand half of the things he says, seems a little bit excited

 Often in these you can hear the struggle in their breathe before anything even happens. Maybe a sign to call it off ??

 First clip is probably the biggest « non-event » of all time with the typical overreacting tv commentator « ooooh my gooood »

 He did not full commit.

 Based on the condition of the bark, the rider at 0:53 is not the only one to hit that tree!

 Much respect to the trees. Week in, week out.

 0:31 in, what is his friend screaming at him? I think I heard “white chocolate” in there, lol.
  • 4 0
 Is building a jump right before a fork in the trail the best idea?
  • 1 0
 0:47 looks like a giant fail by everyone else there. You watch that guy ride 5 feet and you know he has zero business going off that drop. Even worse if some sociopath egged him into it.

 @Stokedonthis: thanks Partner
Good recovery for you too ????

 Listen up kids. What these poor suckers need is NEW BIKES. LATEST BIKES AND STANDARDS. Buy a new bike then you will not crash and burn, you will not fail and your riding will be smooth as butter, pro style. LMAO

 2nd to last one was pure gold. I thought for sure the first dude was going to eat it, and then he rolls er just fine and I'm like "wait a minute......"

 Stopped watching this crap as it was negatively impacting my riding. I found myself a lot more timid when things got sketchy. Not good for skill progression...

  • 1 0
 Serious question...at 00:39 was that an intentional or unintentional front flip?
  • 2 1
 It's not always just the rider, some of these builds are pretty awful and crash-prone (1:01, 1:16, 1:50, 3:35)

 Is there a Friday Fails Pro-Rider edition?
