 same. maybe the worst technique ive ever seen, on such a tiny drop. i cant wait for ebikes to become more popular so we get more sweet crashes like that one
  • 105 1
 Finally some eBike content that is popular with everyone!

 @sooner518: no technique has been used... give him props for sending it. At least he wasn’t stiffing it out. There’s nothing worse than a bloke looking scared to death with rigid arms and legs, crashing out as if he didn’t know what will happen...

 Every ride on an e bike is a fail

 Wow a fat guy with no technique crashes an e-bike at 2:50! Maybe some day we will have a special Monday edition of E-Bike fails.
  • 24 5
 @Endosch2: Fat guy riding a bike, no one says a thing. Fat riding an ebike, the internet loses its fricking mind.

 @rojo-1: Cheers to that!

 PB please make e-bike Friday Fails a regular thing. PLEASE

 Pretty damn sad to find that one super funny just so you could post some e-bike whinging. Especially as it wasn't even funny or bad in any way . . . . Unlike the majority of the ones on 'proper' bikes.
  • 9 6
 @mgolder: no it definitely was most the others had evidence of some apparent technique, that guy literally just rode of a drop, didnt pull up, didnt shift body weight, just held on and rode over the edge, unfortunately it only perpetuates the image of e-bike riders being lazy talentless noobs.

 I have an E-bike, so I'm up riding in places that I really shouldn't be....Now watch me fail!

 ebike riders are such boobs. Hope they film all their fails for my pleasure.

 @JohanG: for me father figures padded all the way up for a little drop are the biggest boobs no matter the bike they are on. I’d call this one Bell Super Free Friday Fails

 Legend has it the guy at 3:25 is still riding out on his nose to this day...

 “Mid air paralysis “ is a real thing.

And also, dude towards the end who crashed on the Snowshoe roadgap.... props homie you sent the heck out of that thing

 That blue pad !!!

 "well, we're done taping the course.

Thinking maybe we should put some padding here...what do ya think?"

"I dunno...what's the worse that could happen?"

"Well let's err on the side of caution and see,,,"
  • 16 1
 That was a soul magnet...not a pad. Pulled his right out!!!

 1:36 how fast do you have to be going to clear that jump?! That guy looked pretty good and he didn't even come close to clearing it.
  • 2 0
 I mean he was on a full DH and it looked like a pretty dirt jumpy spot
  • 11 9
 yeah that was weird, he landed the previous one just fine. But he must have been an experienced jumper, Joeys like me hold the bars to the very end
  • 6 0
 that is woburn sands. that jump is colossal. pretty sure even matt jones has cased that one and he's a pro dirt jumper.
  • 5 0
 @tobiusmaximum: Damn no kidding! Estimated it to be like 39' gap he said. Also to @J-Gordon above, interestingly enough he mentioned how you wanna be on a freeride bike for this line and not a dj. Here's the vid:

 Think i heard seat buzz going off the lip on that one, it’s like grabbing your brake. Nice barhop, definitely a required skill!
  • 19 1
 At some point please stop using your iPhones in portrait mode. We would rather see where you have come from and where you are going. Instead of ten feet of sky and ground.

 You would think we would have all figured that out by now.

 2:05 - biker fail, but the mat guy wins!
  • 9 0
 Dear PB, could you please dole out appropriate punishment for "people" who film in portrait? WTF is wrong with these neanderthals? 100 lashes should suffice for a first offense.
  • 9 0
 All these crashes could have been prevented by having a bike with a steeper seat angle. #geometry

 1) The sheer number of busted nuts.
2) Guy with yellow Reign.
3) 1:38 his buddy is flying 12ft high, about to faceplant. Says "yes".

 Second to last just went off line because his life streamed front of him !!! huge drop that went pretty smooth in fact...
  • 1 0
 What's boggling about that is the drop is called the Cupcake Drop. It's at Snowshoe and pretty easy to just coast off of.
  • 1 0
 @blowmyfuse: Yeah that dude sent it deep!
  • 2 0
 Yea that guy could have literally been going 1/10 as fast and cleared it no problem
  • 3 0
 Is he in an enduro bike dropping to flat around five meters vertical without losing control? mind blowing...
  • 5 0
 3:27...that's quite the huck to flat. Not sure how the resort's risk management team approved that build.

 'Yeah, just send it.You can't go too quick.The landing is massive.'
"Hold my frame warranty."
  • 5 0
 There's a decent landing, just looks like the guy came in a little hot. I always find it hilarious when MTBers complain about trails and features being dangerous. Perhaps it wasn't built for you.
  • 2 0
 it's a well-built feature, but in the dude's defense it looks/feels easier than it actually is to come up short

 That was a monster huck at 3:32!

 no shame in that for sure!

 2:01 is a good demo of a fatboy on his stumpjumper trying to be rockhopper and the enduro of his run abruptly with an epic fail that requires them to fuse a vertebrae.

 0:49 reminds me of how you die in video games. Just fade out staring at the sun.

 yeah man, i am perplex about that one! Where was he trying to land???
  • 2 0
 Never go full bar hump. He sent the bar hump too hard.

 @fedfox: well the landing was strange, the track was closed for a good reason I guess ????

 The clips that seem to go a little too long get my hopes up for the rider to get back on and crash again. Man do I get stoked when it actually happens.

 Most useful thing I learned from track cycling is to fight the instinct to put your arms out when you're going down. Makes me cringe every time I see it.
