 the only reason he crashes is because he pulls up when going off the drop.

 This guy is known for crashing his brains out and always has been known for that. I can count the number of times he has actually landed a jump on one, maybe two hands. He is damn tuff and has more guts than probably anyone else on this site though.
  • + 1
 Proberbly more guts then most of the people in moutain biking today, alot go big, but dam bender goes huge.

 What channel # was this on? I saw that drop when i was in Utah and the landing is almost flat, he's one tough son of a bitch!

  • + 2
 who cares mountainbika probably has jst as much skill as bender but he has alot more sense than to do things tht he cant land.
  • + 3
 moron wat r u talkin about u dont need any skill to jump of a cliff
  • + 0
 Pinner and mountainbika. have u douche bags ever tried any of the stuff that Bender does? No u havent so u cant talk trash about someone when you have no idea what its like to do they stuff that they do. So stop talking about things that u have no clue about.
  • + 1
 fckin right i wouldnt try that stuf i have brains thank you very much.
  • + 4
 Well you obviously dont have much because your grammar is horrible. And its not brains, it skill, determination, and balls that allow Bender to do the stuff that he does.

 ohhhhh my grammar, that was quite the insult. yes it takes skill to land drops but that isn't a frequent event in the life of josh bender.
  • + 3
 Well I see that you took my advise about your grammar. Good job, Im so proud. Now shut up and stop watching videos if your just going to make negative comments on them.

 ok bender probably want/isnt the greatest rider in the world but some of the stuff he hucked was crazily big and if you never try it how do you know that you can't do it? its still pretty damn impressive when he lands them (once in a blue f*cking moon lol!)

 my back started to hurt just from watching this

 its not god to leve the bike midair on dropps, never..

 he just a dumb asss he hucks himself and people say lets see you do it and id say if my friends jumped off a cliff i wouldnt haha he needs a brain cell he never lands anything and just eats shit

 made a living (just) out of it

 Bender may not be the most technically skilled rider out there, but he is still pretty good. Yeah he crashes alot but almost everything he ever rode was over 20 feet. Can you say with your hand on your heart that you would try what he does? The dude rode Jah Drop like 3 or 4 times in one day. That was like two or three times higher than what most of us would hit, you gotta give him respect. Without Bender, big-mountain riding wouldn't be nearly what it is now.

 Man you dont learn very easily do you? Stop talking crap about people.

 FUGRUS!!!! YOUR A FUCKING CUNT CRAPET
  • + 2
 If you look at the period he was doing it most people were still rolling down fields on a GT lobo or jumping off pavements on a hard tail, full respect for this bloke he got his hands on a karpiel and inspired many people to go big and some might say his efforts changed the sport for the better.On the whole crashing part remember he had no advice to call on it was all trial and error and remember he's a cool dude and wouldn't mock you for doing your 5ft drop off would probably cheer you on.

 Man, I dunno, when stuff gets that dangerous it's just stupid in my book. Keep it fun.

 you could train a monkey to go what bender goes. Anyone can huck huge, few can land. Bender can't land, he is nothing special, just stupid.
  • + 0
 I know I'll get neg props but I totally agree! Yes I give bender props for trying that stuff and not giving up, he has heart and determination not to mention the toughest mtber in the world, but he is not fun to watch unless you only like skilless carnage
  • + 3
 if anyone can do it fehn and goes to all of you saying he has no skill or anyone can do it, i want to see a video of you hucking yourself over an untouched cliff of 35+ foot, prove anyone can do it by doing it yourself
