Scott O’Brien just hit me up with some sad contest news, for now read below the official press release. I will be catching with Scott later in the week, for an interview about his decision to no longer run the Voodoo Jam!
“To my friends I want to say Voodoo Jam is over. It’s difficult for me but it’s true.
Thank you all for coming to Voodoo Jam throughout the years and thanks to everyone that has ever helped with Voodoo Jam.
Especially thanks to Terry for everything with sponsorships and the push these past few years. It was impossible without his efforts in securing sponsors and getting things in order.
I started this contest in 2004 with the help of Red Bull and people that believed in my vision for Flatland. It evolved into a grass roots event that was the results of some hard work and dedication to the passion for riding Flatland BMX.
The mission was simple. Show the world what Flatland BMX can be and have an amazing experience with the best riders from around the world pushing what we love about Flatland.
Time to move forward with new BMX projects and other aspects of life.
Voodoo Jam changed my life and I hope it influenced you in a positive way.
See you out there on the BMX!”
