EVENT UPDATE: YEW TEE STREET JAM 2014

 

The Yew Tee Street Jam 2014 had to change date due to logistic reasons. Besides the change of date, there seem to be no other major disruptions. During this period, there were enquiries with regards to why the registration form was not activated yet. We are happy to see the enthusiasm from the local riders in joining this very local event. Kudos to all of you guys! Those who have already registered, your names are already in our records so please do not worry. 

 

The updated event details by Elco International are as follows:

 

The Event

With the successful launch of last year's Yew Tee Street Jam, we have captured the interest of our local media. This year we are going bigger, better and faster. Like before, the organizers will be introducing the sport of mountain biking and BMX to the community. Another community bonding through sports, mixing both fun and excitement, and sharing it with the community. This year it will be a 2-day event. On the first day, we will be showcasing Street BMX and a little fun corner setup for the little kids. For the second day, it is the time where mountain bikers show off with their 'machines'.

Event Features

 

 

Urban Challenge (22 June 2014 from 8am to 2pm)

 

Introduction

Doing tricks other than just cycling on a mountain bike is catching on with the youths. Participants get to be in the 'air' for a few seconds and if they are good, they can do actions that does not seem possible. Tricks like X-up, table-top, lookback or the regular whip are all time favourites.

A total of 6 man made features will be placed to form a circuit whereby participants need to complete the circuit within the shortest time.

 

Risk management

Participants will be required to put on Full Face helmet, covered shoes with long pants. Participants will take turn to complete the circuit one at a time. To ensure accurate time-keeping, such does not happen. They will only enter into the circuit after the previous participant leaves.

 

Equipment

Any type of bike is allowed. It can be a BMX or Hardtail/Short/Long travel bike. It falls back on the rider's preference.
