4x NPS Round 2
Surfin' Dirt / GASP Ireland, Bryansford, County Down
With the sun splitting the trees and with a backdrop to die for, the
4X race at Surfin' Dirt on the edge of Tollymore Forest was eagerly
anticipated by team überdog.
4X, beautiful in its simplicity, involves four bikes at a time ripping
up 400 metres of doubles, gaps, drops and berms. First bike past the
post takes the prize - simple. The racing was fast and furious throughout
the day and everyone had a real blast. Between the races, entertainment
came in the form of the dirt surfin' boys who wowed us with gravity-defying
jumps, back somersaults and a few dramatic spills.
After the racing was done, the bikes and boards started hitting the
biggest of Surfin' Dirt's ramps. Well, you know how it goes... one challenge
lead to another and so on... queue the car jumping!
