Video: 2015 The Fail Awakens

It's that time of year again - time to look back at the comical stupidity of my riding over the past 12 months. I hope you enjoy.


P.S. It was nice to get through a year without breaking any bones!

Had to watch it's twice for the giggles... Thanks for sharing, epicly funny Eye-wink

Always good to watch your compilations Aaron.

The production quality is a cut above most vids on-line, and you seem to have had more stacks in 2015 than I had rides.

Your vids always leave me feeling good about myself.

My handle on another forum is Trail Gumby because I had the sh*ts with myself for falling off so much.

You take it to a new level Smiling

Looks like you have covered a lot of territory to record that compilation which is the positive side of things.

As you can see most of the fails were on the Reign, but this year I spent most of my time on the XC bike just knocking out kms, so I wasn't sure I was going to have enough for a video. You don't get a lot of fail videos riding the Long Track, Kowen, Sparrow, The Oaks, TVT and Wylde.

I managed to ramp up the collection with a few days at Red Hill and Bantry Bay over the last couple of months and Rotorua in October was always going to produce a spectacular OTB or three (as it turned out) Laughing out loud

No broken bones tho .. #WINNING

Thanks for posting this.
I've ridden most of those tracks in Sydney & that makes it even funnier when I watch.
Cheers, Daisy

Best go pro video ever. Amazed that all those stacks did not add up to broken bones. You must be made of steel !

Staffe, have a look at my previous year's Fail videos .. I didn't fare so well. In fact its the first year in 3 years that I didn't break a bone Laughing out loud

Some parts look like a lack of speed or bad tire pressure or tire type , but is a good giggle you are out there enjoying yourself ..

Baaahaaa .. nice of you to say that Scottboy, I think 100% is due to a lack of talent and fitness.

And I thought I feel off a lot. That was great.
At least you're pushing limits and having a crack

I'm giggling like a girl watching this thinking of my first couple of years on the bike. I only wish I'd had the technology to capture my dummy spits after popping the front wheel up on a climb, falling sideways then throwing my bike into the bushes in a fit of rage.

The upside to having so many crashes in different places is you've actually ridden so many different places in the year. That's what mountain biking is all about. Great job and good luck on the trails in 2016!

I had to read the author of that last post... It sounds like someone else I know. They can be bit of a "gumby" at times... Too funny.
Nicely put together Aaron. You certainly seem to get around.
