Bikers going bonkers in the bike park

Event organizer Rory Belter had promised, “The course this year (will be) bigger, better and berrier.”

One Golden City Days event many looked forward to was the sixth annual Huck’en Berries Bike Jam in Centennial Park.

Now a part of the FMB World Tour, it is a stepping stone for up-and-coming riders who wish to join the tour and find sponsorship.

Riders conquered the larger dirt jumps and pushed on to what looked like impossible front flips and spins in front of a delighted audience.

The junior bikers performed tricks with heights that were impressive for riders at such a young age. Local rider Bodhi Kuhn took home the win in the junior category.

Winner of the advance category was Jeremy Weiss, while Jonathan Rollins won the intermediate category.

Although it was a hot, late summer day, the event was a great success, showing a high level of biking. The audience members were happy, cooling themselves down with pop, BBQ and beer from the Rossland Beer Co.

Event organizer Rory Belter had promised, “The course this year (will be) bigger, better and berrier.” It certainly was.
