REPO: 50/50 Animal Jam
I always run into someone and pop out a knee or hip...

Jams definitely help push BMX, are fun, and a great mix of all styles of riding. Especially rolling with your crew and meeting other riders are worth it alone, on top of the sick sessions that go down. I don't ride or go to these things usually since there are too many people and I always run into someone and pop out a knee or hip, but besides having to watch out for people they are great. 5050 is a great mix of all kinds of obstacles and a real deal hardcore skatepark atmosphere. It is a great place to have for BMX in the winter in the NYC area plus a place to stay sane while there is snow on the ground. Get out and support it for the rest of the season if you did or didn't make the jam either way. Thanks to all those who made it out and thanks to 50/50 for throwing it.

"I feel very lucky that Animal Bikes would host an event here at 5050 Skatepark. Without Jams like this there would be no Skatepark here on Staten Island. I am amazed how many people always come out just because its an Animal Jam. I think the Animal Banks Jams in 2006-07 where the golden era in the NYC Bike Scene." - Ed Pollio 50/50 Skatepark
"I am glad to see a scene still thriving during the winter, when its cold and bleak outside. Without 5050 skatepark there are limited options and it fills the necessary void in the tri state scene. It reminds me of the good old days!" - Shane Rossi
"5050 Skatepark has been a huge boost to the scene here in the tri-state area. It's always amazing to see new faces at the park. It's even more amazing when a brand with such a huge reputation comes out and shows support." - Marc 'Bupsy' Kachtan
"It's great to see that Animal is having a jam here at 5050 Skatepark for the second straight year. It brings out riders from all over the tristate area. Jams like this, especially in the brutal north east winters, is what keeps the BMX scene thriving and growing." - Vinny Crispino
About 30 years too late?
Fuck a Super Bowl. Let's ride...
