Dirt is sacred. It has always been coveted by mountain bikers. The creativity and malleability of this earthy ingredient draws in dreamers and diggers alike to create trails in all forms. The daydreams, calluses, and desire to ride all revolve around good dirt. It is because of this, dirt reigns.
The course consists of two lines which intersect each other. The first line is filled with jumps, shark fins, berms, rollers, and step downs. It's become known simply as, the Big Line. Next to it is a slalom-inspired track that weaves throughout the Big Line. It consists of smaller, tighter berms and jumps, and offers seemingly endless transfer possibilities.
|My goal with shooting is to create something different. I wanted to build a course which enabled me to ride a Reign in a different light. I think that's the epitome of freeride, riding however you want. - Reece|
|Holy ******* ****, riding with this crazy ******* was an awesome experience! - Yoann|

Abbotsford, British Columbia is home to some of the best Canadian dirt. It's a perfect mix of clay and sand. The sand not only acts as an aggregate holding the clay together but forms a permeable layer so the jumps drain and are ridable during the wetter months. Reece Wallace and crew spent the winter months building his ideal freeride course.
