The Eight Annual Dirksen Derby went down this past weekend at Mt. Bachelor in Bend, OR. The stoke was high and the turn out was good as riders from all over the country took their turn linking turns down the course. Set up by Josh Dirksen as a fund raiser for Tyler Ecklund and to create awareness about spinal cord injuries, the event has raised over $100,000. The Dirksen Derby is the perfect reminder for why we all love snowboarding. Long live the Dirksen Derby.
