The Mongoose Jam is a tribute to the camaraderie within BMX, joining seasoned pros and aspiring new talent alike to help build the BMX community.
As the oldest BMX brand, Mongoose has been in the game since 1974 with Skip Hess’ development of the MotoMag wheel and has played a key role ever since in the evolving sport of BMX.
Mongoose continues this legacy with the Jam, bringing seasoned pros together with young, rising talent to help pass the torch to the next generation.
With fewer BMX events taking place in 2012, Mongoose set out to create a new and unique competition for the top BMX Pro and Amateur riders in the world that has now become a staple in the action sports event landscape.
Now entering its seventh year, the Mongoose Jam has an updated format to coincide with the rising popularity of BMX video edits. Mongoose pro athletes now team up with two additional pro athletes, one videographer and an amateur athlete at Camp Woodward to ride, film and produce a team edit within five days. The participating athletes and videographers will view the finished edits and vote to see who wins the biggest chunk of our $40,000 prize purse.
