In a fun a filled night, the 4th annual WSCU Campus Jam went off with 45 competitors in front of approximately 500 spectators at the WSCU campus in Gunnison, CO.  The riders had 4 rails to choose from: a flat-down rail, a down rail, a flat box, and a shorter bike rack flat rail.  A lot of impressive and steezy tricks were thrown on the rails, earning cheers from the crowd.  Impressing the judges required technical tricks on all the rails.  The top finishers are listed below.  You might also find a Harlem Shake video.
