USASA team manager Miah Wheeler: “This is the first event of its kind. Instead of throwing all the riders together in a rail jam, Burton and USASA wanted this early age group to be able to have an event they could call their own.” The rail jam will allow riders, 9 and under, to session the park in open jam format and prizes will be awarded in categories such as best trick, style, and personal creativity.
