 Bigger the YELP! = bigger the fail. Quick counter fact is the quicker 'are you ok' = real damage.... no i mean dr...no mean emerg....no i mean are you conscious ...

 @suspended-flesh: As a fellow geez, I can tell you that look on face right after he smiled for the camera was about "I just need to hit it one more time!"

 You get what you deserve with that janky camera angle. Didn't even make the entrance.

 Priceless!

 Dammit—1:51 is as good an endorsement for full face helmets that I've ever seen

 To the dudes at 1:43, I don't normally blast people for crashing, been there done that, but a) not only did one of you crash within 5' of the start of the trail but BOTH of you did and b) the camera angle gods were speaking....

 Pro's Closet Fail. They lay 15% of their work force off, but still have enough to sponsor FF Videos...?

 No doubt!

 That last dude needs to chill out his rebound settings.
  • 1 0
 exactly, everything else in the execution should have been Sun save, but rebound def knock him off

 Props to gramps going for the big drop off.

 A dentist definitely got a new Yeti courtesy of the guy at 1:53.

 ...keep annoying the PB comments section with complaints about autoplay...

 It's funny that The Pro's Closet sponsored this considering how many people they just fired
  • 1 0
 they did so they can keep sponsoring

 A handlebar case is impressive 0:35

 Buddy getting “and I’m ok!” In before the camera guy can say “oh! You good?” That a be sport.

 I'm going to start saying I'M GOOD while I'm still crashing, too. Beat em to the punch

 Good soundtrack this time. 'might as well', 'oi oi oi'
2:50, did somebody step on a cat's tail?
3:08, the grunt of disappointment.

Also, between the first and third clips, a reminder what to do when your bars are in front of your front wheel contact point on touchdown.

 Plays video. First three four slams are brutal. Thinks to one's self, welp I guess it's going to be one of those Fridays. Pours another coffee

 JFC - dear fellow man @ 1:53, please buy a full face helmet.

2:02 - he's not a spring chicken! I might have recommended he work up to that feature.
  • 14 0
 Looks like he's been working up to it for a good 30 years or so... not gettin any younger so might as well send it!
  • 2 0
 @srjacobs: I'm inclined to check back in 24yrs to see if you're still in agreement about sending it >60. Smile
  • 3 0
 @njcbps: It happens more and more - we are getting old and bikes have gotten so much better.

 @srjacobs: Old guy finally hits pay dirt!

 @njcbps: Joke's on you, I'm not even sending it now! Props to the old guy for trying I guess.

 1:41 for the full fail. Friend, rider and video.

 I have no clue what is going on with the second guy

 I am convinced the human body is not built for crashing. I see other animals do dumb stuff and shake it off. I lost my front wheel two weeks ago in a flat turn and slammed my shoulder and it still isn't right.

 That's supposed to be because our Big Brain must be protected at all times, dontcha know. Even so, a LOT of the crashers look pretty effin' stoopid!
  • 2 0
 @RayDolor: My brain is not fast enough sometimes. My hands didn't even come off the bar on that crash (less than 5 minutes into my ride). About 3rd turn.

 You can always tell the riders with crash experience- the ninja skills develop quickly when the bike is about to retaliate on its way by you..

 oyoyoyoyoyoyoy.....OY! I'm gonna use that. Also, props to all those riders getting a nose bonk in, at least until everything went South.

 “AND I’m ok.” “Might as well!” “Oy oy oy oy oy. OY!” Im adopting these sitcom catch phrases for my own riding right away. So funny.

 Can you add a comment on every crash? Like teaching the world how to do it while shitting?

 "might as well" the new "send it"?


and heck ya that old dude who took the drop.
  • 1 0
 “Might as well” seems like a slightly less committed form of “send it.” It’s a shortened form of “I’m either sliding down this feature on my ass or going head first in a blaze of glory. Might as well…”
  • 2 1
 we can all relate to that poor guy in the first video, don't we ?
  • 1 0
