Jammin’ in the Air
The 2010 Farm Jam, New Zealand’s premiere bike jumping event, was recently held on Dan Frew’s land near Winton and included FMX, MX, BMX and MTB (mountain bike riding) spectacles. Riders were split into groups of three and had three 7-minute sessions to show their stuff on the technical course. Making a comeback at the 2010 Farm Jam was New Zealand golden boy Palmerston North’s Levi Sherwood. After recovering from a wrist injury and knee reconstruction, Sherwood, 16, came out firing, throwing nearly all of his hardest tricks on a KTM 250SX two-stroke. Sherwood won the ‘rider of the day award,’ which was voted on by his fellow riders. Sherwood stands as the youngest rider to win a Red Bull X fighters event.
