This Saturday (5/28) North Carolina’s Shotgun Trails are putting bikes and BBQ (two of my favorite things) together for a day of good times! Hit their FB page for all the info you need.
The annual Boozer Jam to support OG SHL Mike “Boozer” Brown is going down TOMORROW (May 21st) at Sheep Hills. There’s always a huge turnout for the Boozer Jams and I would expect nothing less this year. While we’re on the subject of Sheep Hills, you’ve signed THIS LETTER to help keep the land the trails are on from being developed, right?
Red Bull’s Berm Burners was supposed to take place this weekend but a huge deluge of rain headed for the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday has forced them to move the event up and consolidate it all into just one day, Friday 5/20. Practice and registration starts at 4:30 pm and the races get rolling at 6:30. Hit up the Berm Burners page for more info and to pre-register!
Update your calendars, the date for the CTY Woods Jam has been moved to July 2nd and 3rd! A donation of a Lincoln gets you in to spectate or ride, and a Hamilton gets you those plus access to the keg! You can keep up with updates via the CTY Facebook Page.
Here’s another one to throw down on the calendars! Ireland’s Saint Annes Trails are holding their annual Bike Fest Jam June 19th. Can you believe that people have been ripping this place for the last 33 years?!
Despite getting damn near an inch of rain yesterday, FBM’s Battle of Gillies Creek is still a go for tomorrow. Kitt and the rest of the Gillies Crew set to work getting the place back into shape as soon as the rain stopped. Last year it rained up until about 12 hours before the jam and they managed to get things running, so there’s not a doubt in my mind that they’ll be able to pull it off again this year! See you there!
Red Bull is once again bringing Berm Burners back to the Dominion Riverrock Festival in Richmond, Virginia. May 21st and 22nd are the dates, with the pro race going down the first day, and the am race the second. Registration is open now, and you can get signed up and get all the details and schedule info HERE. And oh yeah, Steve Crandall and Mark Potoczny will be handling the mic duties this year. Be prepared to be heckled relentlessly!
Marysville Bike Shop is celebrating the season with a Spring Jam at Burlington Bike Park on May 21st. There are rumors floating around that this may be the last jam at the park’s current location, so you may want to try and make it out to get some final laps in on the current setup.
Here’s your official notice for the two day Shire Trail Jam that will be going down July 16 and 17th up in Bellingham, Washington. You have almost two and a half months to make arrangements to be there, and I highly suggest you get on making them! Have a look at a video from last year’s jam after the jump if you have any questions as to why.
Here’s some interesting news that Ride UK announced yesterday. There’s going to be a four stop dirt series taking place in the UK this summer. The first three stops will be held at existing trails, and the last and final round will be held at Lakefe5t. Being from the US, I’m not familiar with just what Lakefe5t is, but I’m pretty sure I know where they got the idea to replace the “s” with a “5” in the name. Anyway, check out the official announcement below and then hit up the WEBSITE they have set up for all the info…
