The 2012 Big Air Jam went down a storm at the Parc Y Scarlets stadium! A few issues were had during practice – one being a heavy landing from one of the riders that took a chunk out of the landing which had to be quickly fixed so the session could go on, and then a big knee injury to one of the top UK rookies Stu Macey – who had some big tricks to throw down and was set to mix it up at the jam meant Stu had to make the trip to hospital to get his knee fixed instead of riding – he’ll be back soon though. All this didn’t stop the show going off and the Big Air Jam 2012 being an absolute blast!
The comp was awesome – all the riders were throwing down – Jamie Squibb was definitely ruling the whips, Chris Birch and Jon Pearson were both chucking backflip combo’s, and Danny Veale was picking up a lot of style points. 1st place went to Jamie Squibb in the main FMX comp and the whip comp, and Chris Birch took best trick. Only one rider took a big slam, Ben Robinson ate it right at the end of the comp and knocked his shoulder pretty hard but nothing too serious. It was cool to have the championship in a big Rugby Stadium in wales - Mark Thomas who puts on the event did an awesome job, and he recons he’s got big plans for next years Big Air Jam!
