“Dirksen Derby #8 Recap” By WRKSHRT

The Dirksen Derby, an annual race held at Mt. Bachelor, OR, brings snowboarders together from around the world. The Derby, along with being a reason to have fun, has a deeper meaning than what may be portrayed in a viewer’s first glance at the event. The primary purpose of the Dirksen Derby is to fundraise for Oregon-native Tyler Eklund, who sustained a paralyzing injury after an unfortunate snowboarding accident in 2006. WRKSHRT, a Jackson Hole-based crew, came all the way out from Wyoming to show their support. See our full web feature, gallery and video from the event here.
