The Mongoose Jam consists of individual Dirt, Street and Park contests. All Mongoose Jam riders are invited to compete in each event. However, each team’s top two scores from each event will be the only scores to count toward their team’s overall placing. The team with the highest cumulative points after the last contest will be crowned the 2014 Mongoose Jam champions and take home the largest chunk of the $50,000 prize purse. Teams will earn points according to their placement in each contest. An overall Mongoose Jam first place team will be crowned after the last event.
For almost 40 years, Mongoose has been in the dirt, on the trails and off the ramps. Mongoose is synonymous with bikes that perform on the smoothest single track to the biggest drops and riders looking for trails that never end and keep the party going. For more information, visitwww.mongoose.com.
