Saddle Bronc rider Chett Johnson crashes on the slopes of Steamboat Ski Area during the 35th annual Cowboy Downhill on Tuesday. Sixty-Four cowboys, many from the National Western Stock Show, traveled to Steamboat Springs to take part in the race, which included slalom gates, a pro-style jump and plenty of crashes.
