One of the coolest parts of the Mongoose Jam is the camper selection session. It all goes down during the Woodward camper jam where the Mongoose teams watch the action and discuss which rider they want to have join their team. It doesn’t have to be the best riders with the hardest tricks, either—the only criteria is that all the riders have to be actual campers. The level of riding at the Mongoose Jam 2017 Camper Selection Session was super high, and in the end, the five campers who got picked to ride and film with some of the sickest pro riders and filmers were Ren Ota from Japan, TJ Ettinger, Jack Seeley, Oliver Foster, and Jacob Senger.
Mongoose Bikes, a brand of Dorel Industries, Inc., will head back to Woodward Camp in Woodward, PA, for the sixth annual Mongoose Jam. After two years at Woodward West in Tehachapi, California, the brand has decided to bring the event back East with their new Video Battle format. From August 7th through 11th 15 pros, five videographers and five amateurs will film and produce five team edits competing for a $40,000 prize purse. At the end of the week, the teams’ edits will be premiered forWeek Ten Woodward Campers. Prior to that, the edits will be judged by BMX industry veterans on originality, style and the difficulty of tricks used to determine the winning team.
Mongoose riders Greg Illingworth, Pat Casey, Kevin Peraza, Paul Ryan, and Ben Wallace will each captain one of five teams at the BMX-only event. Each captain will invite two pro BMX athletes and one videographer to join their teams. They will then draft one amateur from among the Woodward campers during the Amateur Contest to be held on August 7th.
Following the event on Monday, August 14th Mongoose will begin to release the edits on Ridebmx.com starting from last place to first where online voting will be held to determine which team gets the viewers’ choice award.
“This is our second year with the new video format for the Jam and I’m excited to see how it evolves as we switch up locations and head back east to Camp Woodward,” says Steve Wilcox, marketing
