Method turned up to the 16th Toyota Big Air in Sapporo and it was one crazy event! 30,000 fanatic Japanese fans packed into the Sapporo Dome to witness a ridicurous standard of riding and an insane light and fireworks show, as well as dancing girls, mascots and two live acts.
Scotty Lago stomped a flawless switch back 10 double cork in his final jump to edge past last year's winner Chas Guldemond, who put down a near-perfect cab 12. All the riders sent it kamikazi-style and the after party was insane. Check out the gallery below for the full lowdown and make sure to check out the Method TV episode right HERE.
