Wheels skidded and spun as riders of all ages kicked up dirt at this year’s Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam.

Attendees gathered at the Fernie Mountain Bike Club dirt jump track near the Fernie Aquatic Centre on Saturday evening to be wowed by dirt bike tricks, flips and whips. Beginners and intermediates hit the dirt first, going over jumps in a loop in an effort to impress the Wam Bam judges for cash and prizes.

The night finished off with experts making noise – and getting tons of air – going off larger jumps. Backflips, 360s, whips and other tricks kept the crowd entertained and impressed.
