The Grand Prix, "Progression Session" took place last night under snowy skies at Copper Mountain. Tim Humphreys was in town to compete for a chunk of the prize money.
The setup was a flat step down style jump into a hitching post jib with transitions on all for sides. 20 riders took to the course and five were giving the nod to ride in the finals. Tim rode supper strong in qualifiers and made the cut.
Finals were best of three runs. On Tim's first run he landed a picture perfect cab 900 but fell trying a miller flip hand plant on the hitching post. A run that would have landed 1st or 2nd place. Tim went for the same tricks on his next two runs but with snow pilling up on the run in, speed was becoming difficult to obtain. He wasn’t able to put down a perfect run in the finals but still came away with a very respectable 5th place. Great job Tim!
