Skid by Choppers Grub and Pub won first prize for it's outstanting launch and crash at Big Sky's Dummy Jump last Saturday.
IT'S NOT EVERY day you see a giant fish soaring through the cool alpine air against a backdrop of snowy peaks. But once a year at Big Sky’s Dummy Jump, crazier things than fish fly across the sky as they are launched off a huge ski kicker on the Ambush Headwall.
This year we saw a giant cowboy hat, a winged car, and a large roller skate soar to crash landings. But the biggest flight and most successful jump was a skeleton on a motorcycle – Skid by Chopper Grub and Pub took the grand prize with its long arc and giant crash.
