The quote "If you're not crashing, you're not trying," while originally made in reference to automobile racing, is equally applicable to skiing, biking, wakeboarding, and really any endeavor where failure can result in a spectacular bail. On the Freeride World Tour, athletes put it all on the line for a chance to impress the judges, and the entertainment value is high whether they stomp or not. Regardless, it's safe to say that they're definitely trying.
Check out the gnarliest crashes from FWT20, from Leo Slemmet's under-rotated backflip to Logan Pehota careening off a cliff. Luckily, almost all of these crashes ended with the athlete skiing away unharmed (sorry Wadeck).
