 Seriously, that was awful. I am hoping it did not end as poorly as it looks. Anybody know the result?

 It seemed to cathc the brow of the helmet mainly, so I'd say the guy got away ok.

 Sometimes these things look much worse than they are... case in point... a few years ago was riding the Whistler Bike Park, totally f'ed up a take-up on a jump, ending up sending it straight into the ditch beside the trail. When I landed my bike just stopped, I was launched like a rocket OTB. I remember flying through the air superman style and looking at where I was going to land and seeing this huge rock... I watched the rock until it impacted straight to the face area of my full-face helmet (it's always weird when you get that mid crash slow motion effect...). But, I popped right up and was totally fine, not a scratch on me... I was actually laughing at the ridiculously-ness of the whole thing as my buddies rolled up beside me. It looked like they were more mentally injured by watching my crash than I was physically. Rode the rest of day without an issue and had a great day. Did have to toss that helmet though.

But ya, this did look pretty gnar... not sure how they get these videos but I'd assume whoever submitted it (if that's how it works?) Only would have done so if the guy was somewhat ok.

 That was more than the recommended daily value of minerals in that bite. Hope he's not eating through a straw...poor guy.

 That caught my eye too, hope he's ok! I watch these videos to sober up from time to time, crashes happen and a tinge of fear isn't bad to keep things less dangerous.

 Sometimes these are funny, but that rock to the face at 1:25 and the head whipped into the ground at 1:45 were hard to watch.

 This is a guy named Colin...he was injured but lived to ride again. this trail is very tech and new at the time ...and that was too fast. This happened probably 6 years ago... in Colorado

 Atter watching this it feels like it's a sport full of idiots who build janky jumps. No wonder the average person thinks mountain bikers are crazy, we are.

 Rock to the face was savage....hard to watch a lot of those. Pinkbike maybe do another how to series on suspension setup...particularly rebound...or not hahahah!!!

 Normally I laugh a bit when I watch these, like when we use to do stupid flips on the beach and fall on our backs, but this week was real cringeworthy. Makes me feel older and all parental. Wish I was 14 again. It hurt a lot less back then. Take care out there kids.

 Spirit of those videos: "Have you ever done a drop?" - "No, but this 3 meter one seems alright let's do it"

 We should rate Friday Fails by how many people have to go into intensive care. This would be a 7.

 Can somebody tell me what the hell happened in the second 13? I mean I've seen many accidents caused by too fast rebound (+lack of skill) but this is special. Like a freakin catapult.

 In youtube you can use K to pause the video and , () and . (>Wink for previous and next frame.
She sat on the rear wheel, ripping her pant open while being sucked under provoking a massive break.

 All my major crashes(DH bike at DH speeds)...I've managed to bust a lip and/or get a good gash in my chin...with a fullface, strapped properly. Trail bikes these days are so capable and guys are ripping pretty fast..with feather weight XC lids...tempting fate. Sketch.
