This year we will be continuing the extra contests including the Snickers Bunny Hop (Friday), etnies Highest Air (Saturday) and Snickers Best Trick (Sunday). But, as if that wasn’t enough, we are also throwing in a brand new extra contest for this year’s event, the Primo Long Jump (Sunday). If you think you can give the Pros a run for their cash prize money then you can enter these contests too, all you have to do is sign up for £20. (Please note that your rider pass will only gain you entry to Jam on the day of the contest you are riding not the whole weekend.)

Students can come along all weekend and get tickets on the door for the discounted advance price, upon presentation of a valid NUS card.
