Wrightwood, CA: Active Ride Shop’s annual Sponsor Me Rail Jam takes place Saturday, April 3rd, at Mountain High Resort.
Winner takes home a one year sponsorship from Active, Planet Earth Clothing, Rome Snowboards, Von Zipper Eyewear, Grenade Gloves, Technine Bindings and DC Boots. Overall more than $6,000 in product will be given away at the Sponsor Me event plus a surprise shopping spree at Active Ride Shop.
Says Todd Wakeling, Active promoter, “There are plenty of events out there focused on pro riders but until this contest was developed, there really weren’t any contests devoted to the up and comers.”
The event will take place in The Wedge, Mountain High’s jib park, and includes features such as the Super Kink Rail, the Toolbox, the Flowerbox, the 32 Foot C-Box, a Downhill Rail and the Slayer Box (S-Box). Riders are judged on style and difficulty in a jam format where they have 15 minutes to session each of the features. Their best score from each jib is used to generate a total score and the top 12 riders move on to the final showdown. There they battle over a single feature for the win.
Three divisions are available including Open or Sponsor Me division, Grom (ages 13 and below) and Women (12 spots). Registration is $30.00 for USASA members and $50.00 for non-USASA members. Registration takes place at 7:30am in the Bullwheel Bar & Grill and the event begins at 9:30am.
Past competitors include J.P. Tomich, Matt Hammer, John Jackson, Peter Benchtler, Chris Bradshaw and many more.
