 What a clever way to encourage the production of more Friday Fails content

 After watching years of Friday Fails I expected everyone of these clips to end in a crash... Saturday Saves is going to take some getting used to.

 They should sneak a fail in randomly to keep us on our toes.

 Would be funny to switch the content on April Fool's Day.

 Ok, let's try the PB Week at a Glance...starts on Friday of course:

-Friday Fails: start the week with the gold standard.
-Saturday Sends: those who were able to get above the Friday bar.
-Sunday Saves: Saturday's minor leagues, clawing their way out of Friday.
-Mediocre Monday: ode to @cyclebean and myself...capped at curb-high tabletops.
-Trainer Tuesday (includes rollers): not only do we need another divisive topic, but there are epic roller fails...so get your trainer bail on.
-Whacked Wednesday: the dumbest stuff, from poorly built trail to stunts without helmets.
-Theologian Thursday: just a day-long loop of Wade Simmons Pick A Part vids.

Happy with the opening graphics on this one, the rest of the week's graphics could get awesome.

 Now that we have Send it Saturday, and Friday fails, I recognize my place in the pinkbike hierarchy of riders.

I can proudly submit my footage of casing 8ft tabletops, nailing that 3ft drop at my local trail, and sizing up a nice big feature (and then walking away from it) to “Mediocre Mondays”.

Seriously though. Now that we have days for the Barney’s who OTB off of a curb, and for the super hero’s that can casually backflip, I’d love an “in between”.

 I am conflicted. Filming a send in portrait mode..... feels like a fail

 But that‘s something we‘ve learned so far: A much higher percentage of the friends of people who send it seem to be able to hold their phones right side up, than of the people who fail.

 As much as I enjoy Friday Fails, this is even more enjoyable. Although it doesn't feed my sense of bike skill superiority...
  • 8 0
 Agree! Been biking 40 years and on a MTB for 25...yet never thrown back flip. Yet Pinkbike comes up with countless mere mortals sending flips every Sat. Not helping my weekend warrior ego.

 @stupordave:

Correct response to being unable to do a backflip: “Everyone says that they’re actually really easy. I’m sure if I had an airbag, I could learn them.”
  • 29 0
 So wait. People do actually land backflips?!?
  • 23 0
 I admit, I’m staggered at how many “not getting paid to ride” people are out there doing backflips. Y’all are crazy.

 @gotohe11carolina: and where the hell do you practice them?
  • 20 0
 Friday Fails has programmed my brain to think that this format is synonymous with wrecks. Fortunately, that means that the rider nailing the landing is still a pleasant surprise each time.

 Not gonna lie, I was expected a crash during every segment

 This one felt a bit like "Saturday @stevev88" Too many successes there Mr.Vanderhoek! ????

 Hahah sorry for the feed clutter!

 It feels unnatural to see landings stick, my mind is having trouble comprehending not seeing someone meet the ground with their face.

 Cooking up clips for Saturday Sends is going to generate a lot of new material for Friday Fails. It's all connected Smile

 @mi-bike: Yeah, like Yin and Yang. Nice.

 Maybe PinkBike can use this platform to feature some lesser known music/artists? I enjoy hearing people crash, but I feel as though this needs something else.
  • 2 0
 They should do a “guess what happened” video where they just show the rider up to the face/drop and have people guess if it’s a fail or a send. This video taught me that you can probably identify who will be the fail simply by the way they approach the feature.
  • 1 0
 Yep absolutely. The only time I cringe on Friday Fails is when a obviously competent rider is heading into a feature. The rest I just chuckle at the squids.

 Wow Love this

 This is fantastic!! This is exactly what I need to see before heading out, to build trail. YES!! “I’m making it bigger...”

 I watch friday fails every week and after a while you start to want people to land what they are trying to do
  • 3 0
 it is nice to be reminded that, occasionally, people don't eat shit while riding their bikes

 I love this, so much better than Friday fails. No whincing and feeling bad for riders getting hurt.

And the old schooler in me loved the double stairgap to flat Smile

 Love it. How about ‘Tuesday Tacos’ showing destroyed bikes/gear?

 Friday Fails made me think I was good at this. Saturday Sends has assured me I was wrong.
  • 1 0
 I quite like this. Hopefully, it doesn't encourage people to ride beyond their ability though although that is fodder for Friday Fails. Ride sensibly everyone! Know your limits.

 Thanks Pinkbike, really like this series, much prefer watching nice sends that end in success rather than a crash.

 Body: After years of training, it physically braces itself for the impending fail

Brain: Huh, backflip, that's cool I guess

Mouth: "Just crash already so I can relax"

 I like this. Always got sorta bad vibes from Friday Fails. Felt like karma was coming to get me by enjoying other people crashing.

 I really love this, please don't get me wrong....I hope you keep it up. Nor sure what it says about me as a human, but I still prefer Friday Fails by a long shot.
