 I'm constantly impressed by what people think is rollable.

 I'm more impressed about how they judge their jumping skills.

 "Never tried a drop before, maybe I will just roll down this slowly."

 @moefosho: maybe even sit down a little...

 More front brake also helps. Every time.

 Rollable if you don't brake and have ever did one single push up in your life!

 Your under estimating 2:26. he was this close to landing that drop to nose manual he was trying
  • 1 0
 I’m most impressed by the level of commitment by the guy at 3:42 who decided—almost before leaving the ramp—that his face was headed for the dirt.

 Some of the most epic crashes off a 10 inch drop I've ever seen.
  • 1 0
 And still a lot of air time

 So many people just BAD at riding bicycles. Remember these people next time you read some critical comments on a bike review, gear post or race recap...

 Often when watching friday fails I'm left thinking how the f**k are there any of us left??

 i feel that way when observing almost any human behavior

 This is nature’s way of keeping the number of trail users as low as possible. Methinks we need even more people crashing—not fatally; just hard enough to scare them off the trails for a while.

 I strenuously object to the porn at 1:40.

 "Young guy gets smashed from behind by his bro" sounds like a great pornhub title for this clip ^^

 Insertion must have been pretty harsh.

 That s*&t was hilarious. Probably the best clip of the bunch. I've never seen a case pileup like that before. Such commitment to the same line... so much faith in the lead rider...such a great fail.

 2:58 we almost watched an actual death. And good lord that last one.. slid out on a scrub attempt?
  • 2 0
 Yeah that one had me a little scared. Hope he's ok!
  • 2 0
 Either going for a scrub or it just washed on the transition onto the wood. Fark that.
  • 2 0
 well he cleared it, but the bike sure didn't
  • 9 0
 that last crash gave me anxiety just watching it. i can imagine the feeling of helplessness as your bike goes one way without you on it.
  • 4 0
 What manner of frame snatching feature was that?
  • 1 0
 @freeinpg: I had to scrub slowly through it to see what happened. His front wheel started sliding out just before he reached the drop feature. Yikes.
  • 8 0
 0:01 What would happen if I tried the one-footed landing from the new Semenuk video
  • 4 1
 Flying Squirrel at Duthie Hill! That jump is pretty fun.

Edit - same jump at 1:16 lol

 @thustlewhumber: I had heard Duthie was packed with kooks these days. Confirmed.

 Whoopsies, I'm okay.

 Totally calm and relaxed 1 second after the crash! Impressive!

 I'm going to work on saying that with a demure British accent.

 Watching the WC got me pumped to ride tomorrow. Watching friday fails had the opposite affect.
  • 39 0
 No kidding. I watch friday fails and just think about how I need a new hobby. But hey, mountain biking might be dangerous, but at least it's really expensive.
  • 4 0
 Gotta find that sweet middle ground. Smile

 I highly advise not going to the bikepark after watching a bunch of sick shreddits. The worst crashes of my life have happened when I thought, "'I'm riding awesome today! Time to try that sweet trick that looked so easy on PB"

 It is a shame that people still have Vertical Video Syndrome. It seems like there is less, but it is still a prevalent disease.

 :51 second the guy on the tiniest drop ever. Its literally looks like he tried to fail. Pretty sure that is rollable but yet managed to endo it.

 00:20-00:26 shouldn't be called a fail.

The dude hung on way longer than reason or physics would suggest he could. It took riding into a tree to get him off his bike.

 Kept waiting for the "Rider Up, Rider Up" after the guy walked away from his crash, but alas

 His buddy was super lucky the rider threw his bike away.

 Am I crazy or is the first shot and 1:16 the same jump with two different people falling in almost the same way?
  • 2 0
 Pretty sure that's Flying Squirrel at Duthie Hill

 :19, and :43 are both kitted out for racing, and to my ignorant eyes, look like they're on racetracks, no? Yet, both, especially the skinny kid at :43, look like they've not ridden a bike before. I'm old and totally unskilled myself, so I can't help but wonder if I'm just totally underestimating the difficulty of the section they're riding? Maybe the camera angle or just my own ignorance?

Looking again, I'm inclined to think the person at :19 is actually really good, but something happened to throw him/her of the pedal at the top because I'm not sure I could have held on for anything like that long.

Am I being too hard on the skinny kid at 43 seconds?

 Full speed crash out in the bush can be hazardous. A friend got speared by a dry branch this summer. Luckily missed vital organs, just some fleshwound but had to visit doctor feelgood so he could do his thing with the knifes
