We are in the deep south of New Zealand right now, for the annual Farm Jam event which brings together the worlds best FMX, BMX and MTB riders.

For the very first time this year, a natural terrain FMX element has been added to the event, being held on a brand new FMX dirt jump setup in the beautiful hills of New Zealand. With jumps up to 150 feet in length, the true skills of the FMX athletes will be tested.

The freeride element of the Farm Jam went down today, and the action and video were amazing!

Australian Matt Schubring was voted number 1 on the freeride course by his fellow riders, a score which is then added to the final scores from the regular FMX course contest to determine an overall Farm Jam 2013 FMX Champion. Unfortunately for Matt he suffered a crash after the freeride contest, so was unable to compete in the 2nd half of the Farm Jam event, this opened the door for New Zealand rider Nick Franklin to take the overall win.
