Jean-Pierre Goy Open link in a new window, one of the best known French stuntman, known for his daring motorcycle stunts (like the jump over a helicopter on a BMW R1200C motorcycle in the James Bond: Tomorrow Never Dies Open link in a new window movie, has received the prestigious Taurus World Stunt Award Open link in a new window for his incredible difficult work in Batman: Dark Knight.

In this Batman movie, Jean-Pierre Goy rides the BatPod (remember the motorcycle that detaches itself from the crashed BatMobile?). Other stuntmen had tried, but no one was able to ride this monster. The producers then called Goy in, and he managed to tame the beast. He did break two ribs when the dropped the 1000 pounds monster.

TheTaurus Award is not the only one Goy got for Batman. He also got the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) award for Best Stunt work.

The Taurus Awards (Taurus means bull) are organized by Red Bull... appropriate name for the award.
