I had my first On Dirt clinic at The Lumberyard in Portland about 2 weeks ago. Thanks to everyone who showed up. It was really cool to meet all kinds of people including a group of juniors who are all one family and race around Oregon.
After that, I rented a dirt jumper and played around in the bike park. I had never ridden anything like it, nor had I ever ridden a dirt jumper. I learned how to flow and pump on the green course, and then rolled the blue line. I was happy to simply get out there…and then I saw what it looks like if you’re a bike park geni – dudes catching air and ripping it up!
If I got a few more hours in there, I bet I’d try jumping. Someday!
This is The Lumberyard, and I highly recommend stopping in if you’re ever in Portland.
