Burton US Open 2010: Charles Reid And Jamie Anderson Win Open Rail Jam
The Burton US Open put on yet another successful event with this year's rail jam, their fourth rail jam to date. Riders had the opportunity to show off their skills as they dropped multiple times in this exciting contest.
On an unusually warm Vermont evening, 25 men and 10 women had 90 minutes to get in as many runs as possible in the 2010 Burton US Open Rail Jam.
Multiple riders dropping at once created a chaotic scene that very much resembled a skatepark on snow. A variety of rails, boxes, mini-quarterpipes, gaps and a lift tower feature were part of the setup, providing riders with the opportunity to get multiple hits in on one run.
The judges based their decisions on the difficulty, execution, variety and progression of the runs. The first place prize was $10,000 cash.
