BMX Grom Jake Rutkowitz Blasting a Huge One at Swamp fest BMX JAM in Florida

Grom Jake Rutkowitz Winner at Swampfest BMX JAM

BMX is fun. Trey Jones (Subrosa, Shadow Conspiracy, and Vans Pro) knows how to have fun. Swampfest is really fun. In its second year, this non competitive Jam style event created by Trey has catapulted to the top of the “Must not miss” events of the BMX year. Groms included.

This BMX festival brings swamps, dirt, pallets, camping, BMX and fun together. There was a street and ramp area, dirt jumps, Subrosa rail across water and Scotty Cranmer best trick jump.

Enter Jake Rutkowitz. Jake is rad. So is his Dad. They took the road trip from eastern PA to Central Fl to have some fun. Jake had “pretty much the best weekend of my life.”

We’ve had our eye on Jake for some time now. The kid is tuff as nails, loose as can be, and always smiling. Making it though the Swampfest jumpline, is a massive achievement for a 9 year old, but Jake won the Dirt event at this years Swampfest and we couldn’t be more stoked!

Florideah Swampfest went down in Astatula, Florida on February 17.
