 Am I the only sick person that looks forward to this every Friday morning? I just cant get enough on people failing. Just makes me feel better about myself instead of feeling like crap watching 10 year old kids that could destroy me on the trails.

 The sweet isn’t as sweet with out the bitter. I always liked seeing crash footage of the pro guys, reminds me why I’m not at their level.

 I look at it as a opportunity for learning what NOT to do when jumping. Smile

 I came here hoping to see the fu#k this fu#k everything kid from a previous friday fail. I left disappointed.

 @TimRidesBikes: you mean where the father yells "slow down petey" and the kid pedals even harder to crash it? Big Grin

 Ditto to that. It also reminds me of all the retained hardware that my body is walking/riding around with.

As someone with 2 kids of my own....its sad to say that I could not agree more!!

MXC was one of my most favourite happy times TV show

 @n8dawg82 you are far from alone my friend. My 3 year old knows and loves Fridays for two reasons, #2 being his Gram watches him and he loves his Gram, but an overwhelmingly #1 would be for Friday fails! #raisethemright

 @trippleacht: some fun facts about Germany? No fun in Germany, get back to work.

 @VT2wheeledlife: how many grams does you kid usually take? I was thinking of giving some to my kids to calm them down in a healthy manner. How about dividing 1 gram for 20 cookies and trying with one cookie at a time?

 Non, no, no Pinkbike. You missed the greatest Friday fail of all time. Who remembers this loser in the first video from years ago?

 A castrato (Italian, plural: castrati) is a type of classical male singing voice equivalent to that of a soprano, mezzo-soprano, or contralto. The high-pitched voice is produced by castration of the singer before puberty, or it occurs in one who, due to an endocrinological condition, or mountain biking accident, never reaches sexual maturity.

 @pedrosalas7: No, no someone like that found some back woods maiden and they had a kid. I'm guessing that kid is about 12 years away from voting age, and following in his pappa's footsteps being the playground dare devil. May god help us all.

 man i kid you not, the 3rd video is my buddy last summer on Mt. Seymour trail called Severed Dick. He literally almost lost his on the bottom root. I was laughing hard soo bad non stop when i took that video. even after i checked him out I couldnt stop LOL

 Pure gold. Laughing so hard

 @lRaphl: OR if he's lost the ability to reproduce
  • 1 0
 @lRaphl: Nah man, let him live, the pain will eventually subside. Maybe it was a well placed shot and that gene puddle has dried up.
  • 2 0
 @lRaphl: You don't have to die for a Darwin Award, only be rendered unable to breed (and thus strengthen the gene pool by your absence). So he might have qualified.

 My favorites always fall into one of three groups.
1. Ran over friend b/c following too close.
2. Lands short, fork/frame snaps off and rockets away.
3. Child crashes, dad makes sure to get it all on video before checking if okay.
  • 11 0
 can't up prop point 3 enough
  • 4 0
 Wholeheartedly agree; those are my favorite three categories. A fourth, perhaps, though:
4. Over-rotates coming off the lip, lands on the front wheel. Disaster ensues.
  • 2 0
 @dbendixen: I do enjoy a good pogo stick front end landing.

 To me, Fails are not trying new tricks that you clearly have the skill to eventually pull off (and suffer no consequence in doing so.) Nor are they crashes in races or a simple mistake in getting off line. Fails are strictly reserved for those supermen and superwomen who love to ride above the law of sensible progression.
  • 4 0
 And who clearly have no grasp on reality and where they fit into it.

 Kudos to dude in the race stopping and going back to check on the other 2 guys.

I would like to take this opportunity and start a survey about what is the word for A CASE in different languages?

 Always look forward to these NSFM episodes. Not safe for mom. Even if you’re an adult your mom would pawn your bike after seeing these.

Can video 101 be an editor fail compilation? Surely there’s a few clips...

 Cape-wearing roadie superhero at 5:46 is still my favorite
  • 3 0
 I took a double take wondering is that dude really wearing a cape?

 Gravel bikes and CX bikes pretty much want to kill you off road. Having long stems and geometry designed primarily for drafting might have something to do with it.

 Over the years I've come to realise that helmets are mainly just to protect you from being hit on the head by your own bicycle.

 Congrats on hitting 100 PB Friday fails. Seems like only yesterday that I crashed in the forest and nobody cared...since there was no video it never happened....

 1:40 Nice backflip Beavis! Huh, Huh, Huh!
  • 3 0
 1:00m This, as a builder of publicly ridden freeride features, it absolutely terrifying. You guys (and girls), please please please check your skills in a training area before biting off something like this. I beg of you.

 Some say he is still flying to this day

 A screen grab @ 4:25 will make everything all right in the world.

Definitely a nice division here. Some definite talent, MOST clearly not. The tailwhip to botched pedals, towards the rnf5, BEEN THERE MANY times. It's hard to learn to remember to keep your feet somewhat parallel just before grabbing the pedals...

Others here, man. I'm still blown away by how little attention is given to speed and actually using the bars to pull up (let alone steer or be fluid.)

 My favourite of all time is the guy riding down the trail, with the Bee Gee's 'Staying Alive' playing ,when he catches up to a woman who falls in front of him, and then she goes nuts at him for making her crash (he didn't) e.g. "You broke my leg!!" while standing up and throwing her bike at him. Grateful to anyone who can find it.

 Friday Fails always makes me feel good about being a chicken shit and don't do a lot of airborne stuff!
  • 1 0
 My favorite part of the fail vids is the friends instant reactions. As a rider who has had some fairly impressive wrecks i love when someone instantly asks " you ok" then with the wind completely knocked out of me and no real idea if im ok i eek out a thumbs up and a "yeah im good"
  • 2 0
 Unless it's Skylar...then an indignant "oh yeah" and a subtle sunglass adjustment settles it. (I lie about it like you though, it's the hopeful first step in maybe being ok)

 At what point in your life do you feel the need to film your own mug while riding?

 I just realized the role that watching Friday fails played, subliminally, in my slow exit from mountain biking over the years. Seeing these bodies impacting the earth, often in sadistic slow motion, has scared me off. No joke. I spend my time now doing safer stuff like traditional rock climbing, ice climbing, alpine climbing, and backcountry skiing. Totally true. Still love pinkbike though.

 I've said it before and I'll say it again...do some pushups! Or don't my morning coffee was quite enjoyable hahaha Just glad I didn't make the compilation though my crabapple hits fail certainly qualifies!

 One of my favorite clips ever.. He seems like he just gives up on life !!
  • 1 0
 @thesharkman: He totally just gave in at the end. You can even see him bracing for the impact before he hits. I can't figure out what went wrong. It all looked very intentional.

 slo-mo ooo-shiiii at 10:03 made me laugh same amount as first time round. It's really the quintissential rider bro reaction to your mate eating it.

 I think we need a Recoveries Monday or something, there were a few that were close to saving themselves - but being Friday you knew it wasn't going to happen!

 My favorite part was the slo-mo "ohhhhhh shiiiiiiiittttttttt......."

But, man, I never feel as stupid as I do when I'm watching Friday Fails, wondering the whole time why in the world I would ever ride a mountain bike.

 Not to be a 'hater' or anything, but for the ultimate compilation there seems to be a pretty heavy bias to the last 20 videos Smile

 Frankly, I think Im too sensitive for this stuff. When I go riding, I tend to think more of things that can go wrong, when having watched a fails video. I feel more secure on the bike, when not watching these vids o_O

 When you come just short of a 360 or a flip is that really a fail? Shouldn't be lumped in the knobs who pile drive into a lip or hit a 10 footer sitting down.
