Stop #10 of Volcom’s Peanut Butter And Rail Jam took spring break by storm at Brighton Resort, UT on Saturday March 21, 2015

There’s no doubt why there is killer ripping in Utah after taking laps through Brighton’s incredibly creative and impeccable park.  This creativity spilled into the custom PBRJ set up that included a quick down to long flat to long down rail in zone 1, a short flat rail to long down rail or redirect short flat rail to the long rail in zone 2, and a flat ledge to transfer down ledge with multiple takeoffs in zone 3.  Over 160 riders showed up from Maine, Vermont, New Jersey, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Wyoming, Oregon, California, Colorado, Utah, Russia, and Estonia to compete in the last 2015 US PBRJ Championship qualifying event.  This melting pot of riders was now ready to see who would come out on top and battle it out for the top spots.
