. We're stoked to announce Graham Agassiz (Aggy) will be attending this year’s event as a special guest. Aggy will be competing in the Jump Jam on June 22 alongside Black Collars team member Soren Farenholtz. Aggy will also lead the ‘Bleed Black on Razor’s Edge’ advanced Evil demo ride Sunday morning, taking a limited number of participants on a fully kitted out ride on the area’s most technical ride. Sign up details to be released June 10.
What's the Jump Jam? It's an event that's as much fun for riders as it is for spectators. Watch the regional jump crew alongside Aggy and Farenholtz, as they vie for the coveted top step cash prize. The cash prizing for the Sick Goat category includes: 1st: $250 + gear, 2nd: $150 + gear and 3rd: $50 + gear. Enter the comp
or just come check it out to see who throws down the hardest. Be sure to register before the event, as all categories go up $5 for in-person registration. Learn more.
If that isn't enough to draw you in, Plaid Goat’s Regional Craft Beer Hub will. We know craft beer and riding go hand in hand, so you can expect a rider-centric atmosphere with handpicked regional craft beverages to quench your thirst. Entry to the Beer Hub is free with festival tickets. Evening entertainment will include the Bike Rodeo (hosted by The Flannel Crew, with prizing support supplied by Bow Cycle), DJs and bands.
