It's not often I get news from Mongoose, let alone about them hosting their own event, but come this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday they'll be doing just that. Twenty-five pros and five amateurs will come together to compete in street, park and dirt contests, in the first-ever Mongoose Jam at Woodward west. It will be scored in a unique team format for total pro purse of $40,000.
Here's how it will work: Five of the Mongoose team riders -- Steve McCann, Cam White, Ben Wallace, Greg Illingworth and Paul Ryan -- will serve as team captains, selecting four pro riders and one lucky Woodward camper to compete with them in a jam. Two riders from each team will compete in either the street, park or dirt competitions. Pros will ultimately split up the $40,000 prize purse and the five Woodward campers each get a Mongoose flow deal and more!
The jam is free to the public, but and if you are unable to attend, Mongoose will be steaming the event live on the Mongoose website July 26-27. For more details about the schedule of events and to learn more about the jam, visit: mongoose.com/jam.
