The jam will be dependent on decent weather and a final decision will be made on Friday (Sept 8th) based on rain forecast (fingers crossed!)
Riding dirt jumps is a high risk activity and we strongly recomend you to do not attempt to ride if you are not experienced and proficent in jumping and “trails” style dirt jumping.
Spectators are welcome however we ask you stand clear of jumps and do not obstruct riders. Any persons standing in close proximity to jumps does so at their own risk.
