The first Super D race on the Sandy Ridge Trail system was held this weekend, and it was followed up with an awards party with open and flowing kegs at Windells. Even better, the jump lines and concrete parks were open for shredding. It was by far the best day of bike partying I can remember in recent memory.
Here’s a gallery of my favorite shots from the day:
The post awards dirt jump session was super fun, the best dirt jump session I’ve ever had. I’m stoked to be leaving town on a very high note.
I had the best day of dirt jumping I can remember. Was it the dialed jump line? I can’t remember the last time I rode a set of jumps that were so fun and easy to jump. So much different from the “make it tech, so no one can ride them” attitude of many secret dirt jump spots. Since Windells and the Northwest School of Freeride is a place for riders to learn, it makes for a great place to take your riding to the next level. It didn’t hurt that the beer was flowing, (one beer really loosened me up, and all of a sudden it was just like riding A-Line but with steep lips and landings!) or that fact my friend Tim (a professional photog specializing in Snowboard photography) was shooting. There is nothing like a bit of Kodak courage to make one wish to step up their game.
