28SOMETHINGBMX JAM 2013
After what seemed a pretty bad forecast for the day we decided to go ahead and somehow the rain didn't show which made for another great Jam.
We started the High Hop off a bit higher this year and people got their pop on ending with Fishy and Cullen battling it out, can't remember the exact height they got up to but Fishy got a PB with cullen winning for the second year in a row 40" ish.
The Long Jump got under way, we didn't know if this was going to work, but Brett and little Ewan got blasting over it, Ewan getting some style over it. Unfortunately Ewan took a grass slide to face after hanging up his back wheel and Brett broke his wrist. then up stepped Monkey and Airs who got some crazy jumps going with a pretty short run up and a tight bend, they called it at 24' but I'm sure with more speed they would have kept going. Prizes got split between all 4 who dared hit that jump.
The Street section of the park was next to see some peg action with the NSFYC who had a big crew down for some action along side Rusty, Cullen and Elliot grinding for 28S. The surprise winner was Dan who said he didn't really ride street but took the win with a really smooth run with Cullen grabbing 2nd and more sick prizes and Dyson doing it for the Youth Crew got 3rd.
As I've said best line/whole park got fucked up in the filming and we don't have that to show but some sick riding went down with Monkey getting 1st with Dan 2nd and little Keiran 3rd who did pull a flip during the day and at 10 year old well deserves a prize for that alone.
The day finished off as usual with a few bands on the Guerilla stage with a few beers sank a small crew headed back to mine to party on, unfortunately I didn't last long and Dawn had to take care of things for me.
But a great day went down due to the help of our Sponsors and everybody that helped organise the event, roll on next year!
