College Cyclery Rain or Shine Jam

A Sea Otter mountain bike dirt jump contest.

College Cyclery and H5 Events in conjunction with the Sea Otter Classic recently announced the inaugural Rain or Shine Jam. This low-key mountain bike dirt jump jam will be held on April 15 and 16 and is set to feature top invited pro riders. This event was created to help bring freeride mountain biking back to the Sea Otter.

It’s no secret that the weather can be unpredictable in Monterey this time of year, so if the sun is shining the riders will be throwing down, and if the rain comes they will be hanging at the Ride Zone.

The event will feature a $2,000 prize purse provided by Oakley, and four ramps built by Red Bull. Contour POV cameras will be providing cash and prizes for the “Best Whip It” contest. The Oakley Rolling “O” will be on hand as well as Bike magazine and SoloSports (Punta San Carlos) to ensure the fun continues all day.
