This Year’s The 5th Annual Dirksen Derby Was The Best Yet. The 3 day weekend long event was an action packed fundraiser for Tyler Eklund. Friday started off with practice runs in the two run course. Each course had 12 burms, with the Red Course proving to be more fluid and the Green Course proving to be more radius challenging. Friday night was the Dirksen Derby Broken Board Fundraiser held at the cozy Poet House. Packed House. Saturday was Qualifying for the stacked field, ranging from, Terje Haakonsen to Jake Blauvelt to Desiree Melancon to Macy Price. After the sunny qualifying day the 300+ mass headed down to the Seventh Mt. Resort for the premiere of Aaron Robinson’s “Manifest” movie. Epic! Sunday was the finals day for Sit-Ski-, Splitboard, Women, Men, and the Older and Wiser. Check the video to see all the action at Mt. Bachelor in beautiful Central Oregon.
