Straight up, dirt jumping is crazy enough already…throwing an event on what looks like 50 foot doubles is downright insanity. To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about this bigger is better thing, but hey, I’ll enjoy the wildness for now.
“Contested on possibly the biggest and most dangerous BMX dirt jumps in the world, Dew Tour Champion Cam White has created a truly spectacular action sports event on his outback Australian property. Stepping away from the typical BMX Dirt contest scene (which usually consists of a run of small jumps in a carpark or stadium) the Milwaukee Hillside Dirtjam is a private contest for riders and friends, designed to progress the sport and show fans where BMX dirt came from, and where it is headed.
2014 saw the return of former King Of The Hill, Mike “Hucker” Clarke from the USA, take on Australian favorite and Nitro Circus Live athlete Jaie Toohey, along with some of Australia’s best dirt jump riders including Danny Campbell, Chris Harti, Josh Stead, Mikey Ross and Andy Buckworth.
