NOWEAR B.Y.O.B. "Bring Your Own Bike" BMX Freestyle 2016 Contest Series.

2016! Let's do this again! Nowear Extreme Rider Apparel is proud to present it's 3rd year of the BYOB contest series. The last several years some friends and I have been reminiscing about the good old days. Hoffman B.S. comps and various other mid West Jams like the P.I.T., Rampage and Scrap were legendary and we were all fortunate enough to have attended. Those were some of the best times in BMX for many! We wanted to give some of those same great memories and feelings to today's riders here in the Midwest. After our first year all I can say is Mission accomplished!

BMX at it's Grass Roots Baby! These jams are super fun, friendly and all located at backyard ramps. Camping is available at each event at no cost. Anyone needing rides or carpools please feel free to post on these event pages, or message me directly as I may be able to help organize some rides.

Thanks to so many great companies and riders the BYOB is a big success! Huge props to Rick and Jess at Standard, Sam at Tree, Brian at XS, Nate and Chris from PHV, Tony and Eric with Mudslingers. These guys are what helped us make 2014 & 2015 BYOBs happen!
