Oregon pro-rider Josh Dirksen has teamed up with his sponsors Mt. Bachelor for the 3rd annual Dirksen Derby on Sunday, December 13th, 2009!
This year will be bigger than ever before, with new divisions, the Salomon and Bonfire Pro teams on hand to conclude their cross country tour and a ton of prizes.
This years race will include the classic Snowboard divisions in Mens, Womens, and Groms, and the Sit-ski division. Also new to the event this year will be a Splitboard division where the toughest of the racers will be timed for their efforts going up the course as well as coming back down. Racers with the fastest times on the course will be rewarded with prizes from all of the sponsors including Salomon snowboards, Dakine, Bonfire, and Scott goggles. The registration fee will be $25 dollars on the morning of the event with 100% of the proceeds going to our friend Tyler Eklund and his quest to become the fastest quadriplegic Sit-skiier in the world.
