Steamboat Springs will host the Jump Jam and Photo Shoot during Steamboat Bike Week, June 9-15. The Jump Jam and Photo Shootout will take place at 6 p.m. on Friday, June 13 at the Bear River Bike Park, which was built and completed with the help of the Bell Built grant contest.

Bear River was chosen by voters to receive the grant from a nationwide pool of parks, and the Jump Jam and Photo Shootout will highlight this new asset to Steamboat’s biking community.

The Jump Jam will feature BMX pros and amateurs, competing with three runs of gravity-defying stunts and maneuvers. The highest two combined scores win, with the Pro-Open category competing for $500 in cash.

While the riders fly through the air, another competition will be taking place from the sidelines. The Photo Shootout will feature photographers vying for the best shot from the Jump Jam event, and for cash prizes totaling $1,000.

The venue offers beautiful views of Mount Werner and the contest is set for evening to make the best use of sunlight. Photographers can submit five photos on Pixoto before midnight the night of the contest before the photos are judged.

Registration is $25 to $35 for the Jump Jam and $50 for the Photo Shootout. Riders must wear helmets, and all riders and photographers will sign waivers. For more information and to sign up for either competition, visit www.SteamboatBikeTown.com.
