The Second Annual Rain or Shine Jam is set for this year’s Volkswagen Sea Otter Classic. A two-day competition to be held on the 20th and 21st of April, the Friday and Saturday of Sea Otter, the event now holds a Bronze-level status on the FMB World Tour. To go along with the new Bronze-level designation, this year’s course will see an upgraded design--complete with custom ramps built by Red Bull. Last year’s finals included a strong mix of professional and amateur riders and included Brandon Semenuk, Cam & Tyler McCaul, Mike Montgomery and Paul Basagoitia. A similarly stacked field is expected this year, and they will be competing for a $2,000 prize purse provided by Oakley.
