 @RedBurn: How else are you going to learn? Nobody is born with the ability to jump a bike.

 @RedBurn: Why? even the pros fail at simple jumps sometimes.

 1:25: thats the difference between men and women - she sees the problem, checks the possible outcoming and grabs her brakes to avoid the faceplant otb. All the guys go for it to slow and pay hard. Clever to step sideways. The comment of here friend is so nice and gilry, it makes me grin.

 If you hit the '4' on your computer it takes you to exactly 'Oopsie doopsie'. Then you can keep hitting '4' over and over.

 It was the person filming not the one riding that said "Oopsie Doopsie" also not "Oopsie Poopsie". LOL!

 Whilst I love the "oopsiedoopsie" generally I could do with a lot less face plants and more laughing as everyone gets up and is OK some of these look pretty brutal. They are definitely not good for my inner calm.....

 Only one tree attack - is it that they no longer possess leaf camouflage, or they've gone into winter hibernation?

 I guess trees got the latest update and are now airtagged.

 I was thinking the same and guessing that Outside responded to Sierra Club complaints re tree abuse. Fortunately, PB members stepped up big and proved they can still auger in with the best of them, even without the trees for supporting cast.

 2:12 Where did his derailleur and chain go? Is this kid going full Gwin or can he just not find any parts (probably the latter with how parts are right now)?
  • 2 0
 community survey on protection: I have knee/elbow pads, and it seems that’s the most common body protection people choose, but is that really what’s needed most? Looking at these fails it seems like chest & shoulders ( and hips?) are way more likely to take the brunt. What’s your experience & recommendation?
  • 9 0
 I'd recommend a sturdy neck brace for some of these face plant artists
  • 3 0
 I wear padded liners when I am at the pump track and dirt jumps and they have saved my hips on a few occasions. I don't like to pedal in them, but I also don't really have trails that warrant them anyway. If I did I would deal with the mild discomfort as the padding really helps the heavy impacts on the side of your legs.
  • 2 1
 For your techier enduro/trail riding trail... padded shirts (I have a Leatt) with spine/chest/shoulder protection and shorts with some hip/tailbone protection (I have a POC pair) have come a long way. Try/return a few until you get something that fits you well.

Full face if you are doing some of these gaps
  • 6 0
 In my experience shoulders bear the brunt of mtb injuries, if you include collarbones, but pads don’t do a great job of mitigating those injuries. Hips get hit pretty hard as well but it’s hard to pedal in hip protection. I wear chest and back in the park/shuttles, not because impact there is common but because of the severity of potential injury to those areas and because it isn’t that cumbersome to wear it.
  • 4 0
 Leatt neck brace and a full face helmet are very good ideas when pushing your limits….
  • 3 0
 I wear knee pads, a full face helmet, a chest pad, gloves, and goggles. Surprisingly the chest guard gets the most use, and has saved me from broken ribs many times.

 @snomaster: I was going to say that he should get one of those Bear suits, but a bubble would work too.

 @NCKingsting: Yeah I will probably invest in one of those before my next downhill race this spring.
  • 2 0
 Jumping? Neck protection + FF. Riding well within your limits? Knees+elbows.
  • 2 0
 @fraserw: I'm nearer to the latter, and have followed that same logic. But lately I've been questioning it. I generally ride flow trails and get modest airtime on tabletops. Not too risky, not too gnarly, but I can pick up a lot of speed, and if I wash out on a corner at speed I might get intimate with a tree, rock, or tumble down the hillside. In which case, I'm asking myself whether knee/elbow pads are going to cut it.

I know it's a personal choice, and not easy to quantify the risks exactly. But I'm still interested to hear what y'all are sharing on the topic!
  • 3 0
 @MuddyBrit: according to a patroller buddy at Whistler, blue flow trails are the second biggest source of carry off the hill accidents. The first is A Line, or, in general terms, the first black flow trail intermediates hit when they start over estimating their jumping abilities.

 G-Form chamois bike shorts with D30 hip pads - I never ride without them and they’ve saved my hip bones a few times now. Best protective gear I own imho

 Wow this week is hot on fails! That´s why dentist can afford all new top of the line bikes,riders smack their faces to the ground all day long hahaha.
But seriously,good quality videos. You could see the fails approaching from miles,then the k-boom moment in all it´s glory.
Last week I had a big fail while doing a manual,like the last guy...

 1:43 similar crash to mine but on the smaller jump line and lower speed at all. I have broken my wrists and one of them with displacement. Hope this guy is in one piece. Bike park Kalnica and especially big air line is really for pros.
  • 1 0
 Still wondering if more upper body strength would help some of these folks prevent crashes. I'm thinking shoulder (Deltoid) and triceps, to prevent a decelerating mass (body) from wanting to continue it's inertia over the bars.

 I want to have the crash skills that kid had. He landed in a way that launched him off the trampoline of his shock...spun around like a 80lb child in a skydiving tube...and just landed gentle as a feather. I could ride until I'm 80 with that one skill!!!
