 Thank you Pinkbike, for FINALLY not obliterating the last crash with logos. That stump will give me nightmares.

 If you watch it on youtube there are add-ons to get rid of that crap. It's the only reason I know what happened to the guy last week.

 I am seriously concerned he might have perished from his wounds. That was no joke.

 The guy at 0:32 just rolled down my street.

 So savage. I think that guy was knocked out after the first hit and by the time he was tomahawking through the woods, was totally unconscious.
  • 5 0
 @jaydubmah: savage is the perfect description. It should really go without saying and I think the majority of commenters would agree that we hope all the FF riders make it out ok. I think sometimes that gets lost in all the black humour.

 Seriously, that was insane!!! Normally we see the bike fly 20 meters past the rider, but this time it was the opposite! He kept going and going....

 It is Milan Mysik, top Czech enduro rider. Strong guy, walked away from this one without injury.

 @womitor: oh that’s excellent news, thank you.

 The slow motion berm at 1:06 is exactly how my week has gone

 Nobody:
Guys with reflectors on their spokes: That tree came out fo nowhere!!!
  • 21 0
 I want an entire Friday Fails of bikes with reflectors.
  • 16 0
 Not the rider's fault: reflectors interfere with the gyroscopic effect of the wheels and make the bike's flight pattern unpredictable
  • 11 0
 That moment you spot the reflectors.....you just know.

 Missed rotational tricks should not be considered a fail. They just haven't succeeded yet. Those guys are on a completely different level then the bros who ride strait into a lip and explode.

 That first clip. Wow that could have been a lot worse. Have these people not learnt to not jump on Fridays?

 Double footplant and the head cleared the gap. Not too bad!
  • 1 0
 He looked like he was gonna try to wheelie though the air or something.. no idea how he thought he had a chance of clearing that going .05 mph.
  • 2 0
 I had to watch 3 times to fully understand all the little fails involved in that fail!
  • 1 0
 Rule # 37: No-footers should take place in the air, not before the lip of the jump.

 It did look absolotely horrific on the first watch! If you watch on slomo, its actually quite an impressive bail!

 Love the tree hugging/jump case edition!!

 When did FF become Faces of Death? I hope that guy is ok.
  • 1 0
 That could kill you. I hope he is alive!

 I honestly thought 1:06 was in slow mo!
  • 1 0
 It looked like slow motion until the crash showed it was in fact slow.motion.

 Bunch of detectives this week.....on the case!!

 I wish there was a medical/bike damage report attached to these videos. Some of the crashes look pretty catastrophic on both ends.

 Having separated a shoulder today i somehow find it les entertaining than usual...

 The covid bike sale surge has finally resulted in the expected Friday fail videos and boy were they some beauties. Oh, and don't use your inner thigh as a rear brake, just a suggestion.

 Does anyone think that Friday Fails has gotten better since the advent of Saturday Sends? The real point of Saturday Sends isn't to showcase normal people doing radical things on mountain bikes, that's just a welcome byproduct of its real purpose, which is to motivate people to make videos suitable for Friday in the false hope of making the Saturday reel.

 Friday Fails definitely dropped off for awhile but this episode should win an Oscar. I was at the edge of my seat the entire edit.

 DONT ride your bike on Fridays - problem avoided.

 Death Toll:
- 4 bikes
- 3 collarbones
- And maybe 2-3 human beings?! Some of those were *rough*

 Friday Fails: Maximum Pain edition. That entire reel was brutal this week!

 Similar to the whistler opening day article. I would like to see data on friday fails: which bikes are most crashed, which countries are most represented, 27.5 vs. 29 lol.

 Component manufacturers take note of this video. Forget about ceramic or organic pads. Apparently the best braking power comes from the rider's face sliding across the ground.

 Staying rubber side down is all good advice until you realize that a tire is round and the rubber side is also down if the bike is turned over in ditch.

 I love the juxtaposition of under- and over-rotation at 1:23.

 1.06 Thought it was in slow motion... but what's the point of going so slow to do that?????!!!!!!!

 I normally am not too traumatized by Friday Fails, but I think I saw more ER visits per minute than a Faces of Death video.

 The more I watch FFs, the more I believe full-face helmets and horse collars should be mandatory riding gear.

 The third gap jump on Steel City track claims yet another scalp. At least the rim didn't explode so there is that for small mercies.

 Sooo many trees and so little time... the hurt was epic

 2:13 executes a textbook dead-cat-bounce.
