The Dollar Jam will be a cash jam with a difference. As usual the riders that throw down will get an instant cash reward but at the end of all the sessions the judges will decide which of the riders will go through to a Final Jam and compete for the top slots. With course input from Dub Jack, Dan Lacey and Ben Lewis it is guaranteed to keep the riders happy.
