Burton have just announced a new event series kicking off this March. Taking the lead from the Burton AM Tour which was a huge success throughout Europe, the Burton Park Jam Tour follows the same mandate: providing a great gateway for young amateur riders to gain their first experiences of contest riding.
The Burton Park Jam Tour will launch with three stops this season in parks sponsored by Burton, followed by more stops throughout the summer and next winter. The tour is open for all riders male and female, in total 50 riders per stop. Riders will be divided into two age groups – Girls & Boys (14 years and younger) and Women & Men.
All Burton Park Jam Tour events are 2 Star TTR events, which means all riders earn points for the Swatch TTR World Tour Ranking list, the same ranking list their heroes are on. It’s one day events including a free BBQ for all participants, starting off with qualifications (two runs) followed by the finals in a Jam Session format.
Marian Kaeding, Burton Europe’s Marketing Director, says: “The idea behind the Burton Park Jam Tour is to provide a platform for young talents to compete and to gain contest experience, but also to gather, meet like-minded riders and have fun together.”
Riders can inscribe through selected local snowboard shops of each resort starting March 1st. For more information contact Burton Rider Service email@example.com or 00800 287 866 13 (toll free) or www.facebook.com/BurtonParkJamTour.
