J. J. Marley sent us a great recap of the 3rd Annual Tampa Bay Labor Day Flatland Jam together with a highlight edit by Brett Rohlfing:
The third annual gathering of twenty inch riders from all over the USA converged once again in a covered roller hockey rink in exotic Palm Harbor, FL. With a great turnout this year, the event had a new exercise featuring a 'Jam Circle' format of Tricks for Cash! Money raised by the sales of raffle tickets went directly into the prize money for the contest winners.
Tricks for Ca$h Winners: - Best Front Wheel: Dr. Dax Wolford ($100) - Best Back Wheel: Dr. Dax Wolford ($100 & Shadow Raptor FC Hub) - Best Front & Back Wheel Combo: Bill Nitschke ($120 & Shadow/Subrosa Merch) - Best Old School Tricks: Bob Walter ($100 & Pork Chop BMX Box)
Honorable Mentions go to Scott Weaver, Mitchell Hall, Chris Babin, Teak Gabriel & Michael Alvarez for putting in amazing runs of highly original & very difficult trick combinations. Special Thanks to Matt Coplon, MC Kip Williamson, our judges Chad DeGroot, Marcos Paulo DeJesus along with special guest judge & DJ Mark Eaton aka Lungmustard of the legendary Plywood Hoods for making our third jam the best one so far! It was truly an honor to have all of the above names involved, considering their dynamic influence on the Freestyle BMX industry for many years now.
