NEXT EVENT - Dumbarton Qualifier, Sunday 17th September 2006
Fourth and final Backyard Jam qualifier
The fourth and final qualifier is upon us and all you need to do now is ask yourself one question. Are you ready for the carnage?
This Sunday 17th September is going to be your very last chance to qualify to enter The Etnies Backyard Jam 2006 so if you want to ride and you haven't qualified get yourself and your bike to Unit 23, Dumbarton Scotland.
There are just 10 Over 14 and 5 Under 14 places left for the Sheffield jam. For a measly tenner you can ride all day andget the opportunity to qualify for the main Jam in Sheffield. Don't forget if you wanna bring your bike and ride and you don't wish to enter; you may ride the park all day for £10 but you will not be able to ride the competing area while the qualifiers are running.
Love BMX but can't ride? There will also be spectators' tickets being sold on the door for just £5 so you can come on down to support the riders.
