It is with much regret that the organizers of Goat Style have announced that the 2011 Goat Style Bike Jam Festival is forced to be cancelled. The event was one of the most anticipated events of the summer but due to a lack of sponsorship funds the event organizers have run into financial difficulties and have had to cancel the event.  An event of this magnitude needs the financial funding from the corporate world as well as the bike industry and unfortunately the support needed did not come through.

At the eleventh hour the organizers of Goat Style and the organizers of Silver Star Bike Park met and brain stormed over the numbers and tried to source additional funding from anywhere they could think of. However, unfortunately they could not find a solution that would do the Goat Style name justice. This event has broken new ground every summer since its inception six years ago and to not do that history or Silver Star’s Bike Park justice would be undeserved.

Silver Star Bike Park and Goat Style have built strong reputations within the bike industry and it is always the plan to carry out events and endeavors that represent those brands proudly and it’s unfortunate that this event lacked the funding from some key supporters that was required to make it a success. Everyone who has already registered for the event will be refunded their registration fees from the Goat Style organizers. Likewise, anyone who has booked accommodation with Silver Star Mountain Resort will be refunded their bookings.

The organizers of the event and Silver Star would like to thank everyone that believed in this event and who planned to attend and also apologize for this unfortunate conclusion. The mountain bike industry is a passionate group and everyone involved in putting this event on were dedicated and deeply passionate for the cause and are very disheartened at this turn of events. All the support shown to this event has been much appreciated.
