Video: Cole Nichol Pays Tribute to Jordie Lunn with Wild Dirt Jump Spot in 'Home Ties'

Jan 22, 2021
by Rupert Walker  


Inspired by the late Jordie Lunn, Cole Nichol spent the past five years transforming his own backyard into a mountain bike refuge. On the outskirts of Victoria, B.C. lay Cole Nichol’s safe haven. It’s full of dirt jumps, hips, ramps, drops, and some of his fondest memories of the late bike legend Jordie Lunn. Five years ago, they started digging — transforming Nichol’s backyard into an ultimate set-up and a staple of the Vancouver Island dirt jump scene.

Since Lunn’s passing in 2019, Nichol started spending more and more time moving dirt in memory of his greatest inspiration.

bigquotesCole pulled a lot of Jordie's crazy ideas and put them to work in his own yard. Coming from my BMX background, that really stoked me out, especially seeing someone do something really different and unique. I thought it was really refreshing.Darren Berrecloth
