High flying bike jam

The seventh annual Huck'en Berries Bike Jam was held at Centennial Park on Saturday.

Dirt and bikes were flying at the seventh annual Huck’en Berries Bike Jam at Centennial Park on Saturday.

This was the second year in a row that the event was sanctioned by the Freeride Mountain Bike Association (FMBA).

“What the FMBA helps us with is getting bigger riders, and gets the riders more points, and helps them progress in their riding,” said Rory Belter, the event’s organizer.

The bike jam was completely volunteer run, with riders helping to repair the jumps between events. A number of local businesses also helped out by sponsoring the jam.

“We really appreciate all of the community support,” said Belter.

The event usually features riders of all ages, but there was no junior event this year, as many of the junior riders (ages 11 and under) were out on injuries.

First: Paul Harrop, 62.67Second: Jonathan Rollins, 60.66Third: Jacob Tooke, 58.33

Pro/advanced winners:
