The biggest BMX event of the year in Australia is over for another year

It's been just over a month since ACT Jam 2023. It was the best one yet. Big trails, epic street course and a ripper video premiere of the top 8 videos.

I couldn't be more stoked on how the sense of community is in BMX right now; everyone makes the trip to Canberra from all parts of the world. We even have riders travel from literally the other side of the world (England) to just be here for ACT Jam.

Wild riding went down and as always, a core value of ACT Jam is to have the every day rider, or the young hot shot, rub shoulders and be on the deck with the best of the best.

BMX is not like other sport in that way.. You're unlikely to kick the footy with your favourite player on the oval during the game, but you do get to ride with your favourite rider at an event like ACT Jam.

The top dawgs

ACT Jam is about community and riding together.. But there is prizes for the crew that shred the hardest.

There was some savage riding from everyone over the weekend - treated to crazy trains from likes of R-Willy and Josh Dove, wild street moves from Boyd Hilder and Jonny Mackellar. Cody Pollard went just about higher than the sky at Belco.

But the cash/shredder awards went to:

Belco bowl shredder: Kris Fox

Curve Wallride trick: Beechy (gap to curve)

Rail trick: Brayden McPharlin (wheels to up barspin manual)

Hitching post: Paterico Fallico (540 barspin)

Wallride trick: Brodie Ritter (wallride double whip)

Dirt shredder: Jason Watts

Ultimate shredder: Three way tie, Sam Grace, Aryei Levinson, Jason Watts

Not just riding over the weekend..

We brought the new video competition to ACT Jam this year and it was met with overwhelming success.

Some of the raddest riders in attendance at ACT Jam, that sometimes are there to kick back and enjoy the festivities and not ride at all.

The video competition was a chance for those riders to still get recognized for their amazing talent on a bike.

Sammy Grace took out the top spot, with Troy Charlesworth's epic Warparty video in 2nd place, with Jarrod Osborne's local video taking out 3rd.

The video competition will continue! Look forward to next year for that one

10 years of ACT Jam

It's been 10 years of ACT Jam since we brought it back and I can only expect it to be bigger and better next year.

My intention is to show the world just how rad the BMX scene and community is by providing a platform like ACT Jam.

Kickass bike riding, bands, party, good times, stoke. Riders getting rewarded for their efforts.

Get ready for next year.. good times ahead.
