 The tree hits are the worst
  • + 29
 Ahhh man it's the little puff of tree bark dust at 3:14 that does it
  • + 11
 @Franziskaner: This actually looks life threatening.

 "Speed has never killed anyone. Suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you."

 My shoulder agrees!
  • + 17
 trees are jerks
  • + 6
 also hard to watch are those crashes where the rider desperately holds on to the bars while his face is already dragging along the dirt
  • + 0
 @K1maxX: we call that a dead a sailor
  • + 13
 @flipoffthemonkeys: i always thought a dead sailor was a guy jumping motionless with a slow but steady nosedive.

 The trees never seem to move at all!
  • + 30
 @Lanebobane: trees definitely move, I've had them jump out on me a few times
  • + 1
 @scotttherider: Holy crap! That was gaping!
  • + 3
 @scotttherider: I see in the comments it says no broken bones! Unreal! He must be made of summat different to me. You’d have needed a dustpan and brush to get me off that trail!
  • + 1
 @colincolin: I never saw that this way, but you are probably right....
  • + 6
 THE TREES ARE STRONG MY LORD... the roots go deep.
  • + 1
 @K1maxX: maybe you're right
  • + 1
 @Franziskaner: that came out in 2012, I've watched it hundreds of times, it still scares me
  • + 1
 Uggh...the middle fingers of God!! My testicles are burrowing back up inside me with each crash. I can't watch anymore.

 Trees give zero f*cks...they don't even flinch.
  • + 2
 One night Last fall I woke up at 2am to go to the bathroom . When I was going back to bed I heard a low rumble "crunch" and the sound of glass hitting pavement. No skid noise at all. A drunk driver fell asleep and drove into a 60 ft Pine across the street at 40mph. The car was totaled and driver badly injured. The aftermath was a unsettling image . The Pine didn't flinch and is still standing tall and proud with a small mark on it as proof of the accident....Yes Trees gives zero f*cks.

 @bryantaber: you should start writing novels.
  • + 1
 @Franziskaner: hahahahaha...yes

 I think that kid is paralyzed
  • + 11
 @owlie: He's fine,I used to play lacrosse with that kid.If I remember right he walked away with only a concussion
  • + 3
 @djumper99: Since you know him, tell him to buckle his helmet up for his next crash. That thing flew off like nothing.
  • + 28
 Hey everyone, hoping you can help me. If there's an object on the trail that I'm trying to avoid, should I stare directly at it? Thanks!
  • + 17
 best advice is yes
  • + 19
 Definitely not! You should shut your eyes when approaching obstacles to avoid the temptation to stare at them.
  • + 5
 lots of front brake is good !
  • + 4
 @pigman65: plus being as stiff as possible and definitely seated
  • + 1
 @dj100procentenduro: hey, that's how I roll Eek
  • + 1
 No, keep your eye on the bicycle computer at all times. A cellphone would do too.
  • + 1
 Choose any advices here and make sure you get it on video!

 Love the drop to faceplant into the puddle. Frosted lucky charms aren't so magically delicious when they are spraying through your nostrils. Note to self don't eat cereal while watching Friday fails
  • + 1
 Holy shit*t! I'm crying! Best comment ever. Bravo.
  • + 1
 Lucky Charms for breakfast?? Aaah, the off-season. . .

 2:00 is beautiful...little old hardtail, slow speed, tiny jump, wipeout
  • + 4
 Dude fell 'old'. Getting old sucks.
  • + 3
 Haha, the background at 3:45 looks silently disturbing, like a black-blooded alien smashed their head against the wall trying some other trick. I wonder if a body is still laying there by the bike?
  • + 5
 I love the dude who jumped but his bike didn't at 3:19
  • + 2
 I loved that. He got the flip, but I'm not sure his bike got the memo
  • + 4
 This is an insane week, but that very first clip before the title... oooooffff.
  • + 3
 Full face helmet everywhere, all the time. That and I don't get why do many riders don't wear elbow pads.
  • + 1
 ^^this! So many companies make completely comfortable elbow pads.
  • + 3
 "Only pussies and smart people wear elbow pads. And I ain't either of those."

 Last week was full of Dead sailors, this week was Dead loggers?
  • + 3
 Most videos... "Holy S***!". 1:36 Serene silence as the poor guy flies into another dimension. lol tup
  • + 3
 Always immediately followed by "Are you alright?"
  • + 1
 @pdxkid: Which is then followed by "is my bike ok?"
  • + 2
 The final frame was so artistic. An abandoned bike with the wheel still spinning. Should have faded to black.
  • + 3
 My week has been like that first fail: a little momentum, then....splat!
  • + 2
 Lol the lady who cusses when he flies by, then gasps as he crashes... save it til ya need it... too early jinxed him Razz
  • + 3
 I thought to myself "f*ck he's coming in hot"
  • + 1
 Dude crashing at the .40 mark, is a true gentleman, crashed into the crowd, first thing out of his mouth was asking is peeps where alright.

 So weird... what's the clip @ :50? That looks like my area, and the voice sounds EXACTLY like a friend of mine.
  • + 1
 Holy shit, these are the most brutal I've seen on here in a while. The guy just launching warp speed down that trail killed me. What the actual shit was he thinking?? LMAO
  • + 1
 I think that's the first time i've actually seen someone riding a cannondale moto... Of what a weird and flexy blunder it was.
  • + 1
 That’s me, years ago.... now i’m riding my brand new carbon patrol 2019.... and my riding skills are also better yet
  • + 1
 @rmeneses74: You've sure move on, the Patrol is hard to fault.
I remember we tested the Moto for our magazine once - none of the testers got along with it. So difficult to pull, so over complicated, and so flexy at the back it was like having the bike fold in half on hard turns. I really dont think i ever saw one on the trails other than our test bike. Don't mean to dis, i'm honestly surprised Smile
  • + 2
 Pinkbike, you should replace your opening intro with the clip at 1:40
