It’s official – Mongoose Jam is heading to the UK! The UK needs big BMX events again – in addition to NASS of course, the scene needs large events to head out to, get psyched about, and go for. There’s nothing like being there live, in the flesh, experiencing a proper pro BMX event – and Mongoose Jam UK will be all that. Here’s what we know so far – more info to be announced when the official releases come through…
MONGOOSE JAM UK
When: July 2nd & 3rd, 2016
Where: Rush Skatepark, Stroud
How Much: $15,000 Prize Money
Following years of successful contests at Woodward Camps across the USA and with another taking place later in the summer at Woodward West again, Mongoose Jam is now expanding globally with another contest in the UK – with the same pro team contest format as before: whereby Mongoose pro riders hand-select their own teams to ride across Bowl, Park, and Street course contests for big prize money: Mongoose Jam UK will have a prize purse in excess of $15,000 – which is the largest prize purse in UK BMX contests in years.
The venue for Mongoose Jam UK will be Rush Skatepark in Stroud. The 40,000sq-ft indoor skatepark is a perfect venue for the event – as it features three distinct contest areas all with public viewing spaces – the Mongoose Jam UK will take place on a full Street course, in Rush’s unique Bowl, and also the progressive Park area.
Team Captains are confirmed and they will be announced next… more news and developments will be coming – watch this space.
See you there…
