James G is an YT Capra riding demon, avid “Flipboard” consumer and all round distributor of MTB stuff for general amusement.

Although I suspect “amusement” is probably not the word I should use to describe the “Top 10 Fails of the Week” on Singletracks.com.

I hope none of the featured riders were damaged (too much) by these incidents! This is indeed cautionary watching for anyone exhibiting too much ‘trail enthusiasm’ at this time of year. And as James said in his mail to me, watch this with the sound turned up.

I dare you not to wince…


Oh, and Stephan F has just mailed me a link to a video on PinkBike (which I can’t embed here) which shows Afan being spanked during the British Enduro Series. The trails are familiar. The speed is not!
