This is a perfect example of the racers" falls being much more entertaining than the actual race itself.

The dudes on the sidelines with the... noisy, clanging things at 1:27 3:35 are such morons. I hope I would be so into the actual biking that I wouldn`t hit them, but they sure are on thin ice.

I am by no means a mountain biker but I do have some intelligence when it comes to riding a bike ...when you are going down a hill and you are accelerating the last you probably want to do is apply your front brakes otherwise you wil end up tumbling ass over teakettle like a large portion of this field .....freaking idiots ...Did someone say these were university students??? In school learning how not to use their brain !!!

I`d try it once or twice, or until I were badly injured... Been a while since I`ve ridden a trail as rough as that, I just wish FL had hills and mountains to ride.

This is not far from where i live if its in Sheffield

Its the BUCS finals, which is the British Universities champs for anyone thats interested. I`m more interested in 20 somethings skidding through Yorkshire on their sides

Are these first time riders? The WA trails here force you to learn fast or fly over the edge into stagnate mud and stinging nettles.

But wtf was with the spectators in the path and that non-nice individual with the bell? I`d seriously fuqk that guy up if he rang that bell in my face.

It`s cross country (XC), not downhill mountain biking. XC riders don`t typically wear shin, elbow, or knee protection.

Negotiating off-camber corners at speed can be tricky until mastered. These folks had to worry about ruts, loose dirt, chunks of field stone, mud (compliments of poohead spectators), other riders, and the poohead spectators I just mentioned. I wish it had been raining. That`s when the real fun starts.

Time to break out the XC bike and hit the trails. Night rides are much more whee.

It seems like the ones who committed did best and most made it through. If you tried to brake or control it too much you went down.

Hmmmm, I`m gonna be riding a tough challenging course today, Should I wear knee, elbow and shin protectors?

Nahhhh, I`ll just wear skin tight Lycra that only goes as far as just above my knees, that`ll do the trick!

*sigh* well at least they were wearing helmets.

And I hoped they enjoyed picking out the gravel...

This is a version of the song, it doesn`t sound the same at the beginning but it`s definitely it.

What`s with all the idiots standing really close to fast, uncontrollable bikes as they come down the hill? Do people in sheffield have really bad eyesight and can`t watch from a safer distance?

"Its not the nastiest corner, these are just bad MBers."

Agreed, come to my backyard (North Shore), I`ll show them hard corners.

Awesome. Thank you for posting this Fancy, that was hilarious.

Kudos to the riders that made it down! And thanks for the entertainment to the riders that went for it, but wiped out. BOOO!!- riders that tried walking their bikes.

What`s the song btw? That`s my new happy good time song

It`s also an example of how a potentially entertaining video is ruined by the soundtrack...
