Unlike years past, no worries about hitting rocks at this year’s Dirksen Derby! In fact, if things keep going like they are, Bachelor is set to open Nov. 20th. Of course, that means you won’t have the “the season just started” excuse of years past, but we can think of worse things. Here’s all the info.
Oregon pro-rider Josh Dirksen and his sponsors have teamed up with Mt. Bachelor for the 3rd annual Dirksen Derby on Sunday, December 13th, 2009!
This year’s race will include the classic Snowboard divisions in Mens, Womens, and Groms, and the Sit-ski division. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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-skier in the world.
