Vanta Jam 2023

Posted on 20 Apr 2023

BikePark Wales and Red Bull are teaming up again to bring Vanta Jam back for its second year and we are buzzed to invite even more pros, spectators, media and industry names to the park for an awesome day of flair and style, held on our biggest and most epic pro line.

Mountain biking is one of the most exhilarating and challenging sports out there (that’s why we love it) and when it comes to freeriding, the stakes are even higher. Vanta Jam is quickly becoming one of the must see freeride events of the year with some of the most skilled and daring riders competing against each other for the top spot, and being named King/Queen of Vanta is no easy feat. The original Vanta Jam was by it's very name a loose Jam format, for 2023 we intend to stick to our roots with this format but will up the stakes with a £3,000 prize pot for both rider and panel voted favourites..

Keep an eye out for our trail crew train as it comes steaming through as well, these guys not only work their butts off on the park but also have some mad skills on their bikes so you do NOT want to miss them! This year we have also chosen some Wild Card entries and Local Heroes so there may be some new faces here to watch out for.

After taking on feedback from riders last year we are making the track even more epic for 2023, designed to push the limits but also give the riders the most fun and ability to pull their very best tricks. This event is open to a select group of elite riders who are invited to participate based on their skill and reputation and we cannot wait to see what each of them brings to the table this time around.

Vanta Jam is more than just a competition to us, it’s about bringing together and celebrating the mountain bike community and the skill and athleticism of its riders. It’s a chance for pros, fans and industry affiliates to come together and share their passion for the sport and push each other to new heights in a format unlike any other in the UK.

If you are a mountain bike fan, Vanta Jam is a must-see event, with Red Bull on site bringing the music and entertainment, food and drinks tents and expos from our supported brands you won’t want to miss out. So mark it in your calendar, book your tickets and get ready for the event of the year.
