Jamie Goldman's 2nd annual Upside Down and Underground Invitational kicked off today with a bang. The course has been completely rebuilt since last year, and is really flowing well. The weather in Oregon can change by the minute, and Bend dealt a harsh hand today full of wind, rain, hail, and snow... but it was not enough to stop the riding. The session went on all day long and as the sun set, riders set their sites in the trick jump at the end of the line. Some big stuff got thrown down, but in the end 15 year old Anthony Messere took the win with a flip double whip!
