THE The Huck N’ Berries Bike Jam is back, seven years young and ready to get schooled.
From the ABC’s of dirt-jumping, to timeouts for untimely radness, the volunteer corps is busily beefing up features for Saturday,Aug 29th big event.
Playing in the sandbox at Centennial Park, gap-jumps, a pump-track, and Whale’s Tale are being sculpted with craftsmen’s precision, Powder Pig Excavating and a dedicated team of loam lovers getting down and dirty behind the spoke-screen.
“The course this year is bigger, better, and berrier,” promises organizer Rory Belter.
A branch of the Rossland Rubberhead Bike Festival, The Huck N’ Berries is the younger, spazzier sibling to the Rubberhead Enduro and the mustachioed Seven Summits Poker Ride; you never know what’s going to get thrown down or atcha!
While lacking a head full of dread and a bad teenage mustache, The Huck N Berries has come into its own,
Perhaps it’s the snack-time (BBQ run by Rossland Rotary), with Refreshments for all tastes. but more likely it’s the berry-hucking hijinks of the Kootenays’ best freestylers going head to head in this sweet, judged event!
With entrant categories running in age from Birth to 11 with the Juniors, Prodigy 11-14, Intermediate 12 and up, and Advanced from 14 and up, entry fees are $35 for Jr & Prodigy, and $45 in the Intermediate-Advanced division,
Or, if you leave it to the last minute you can still register the day of the event, the course opening to practice runs at noon, the Show and Tell-It-Like-It-Is part of the jam getting going at 3pm with awards for both the Huck N Berries and Dreadhead winners commencing once the dust settles.
