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.

bigquotesMy 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

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.

 Always Love seeing Reece Wallace ride, whatever! He is low key one of the craziest dudes on any bike, period.
  • + 6
 This is paradise, I wish I could ride there

 Cam we could make this at John and Jenny's ?

 that front flip was so smooth on the landing, as you ended rotation, you just rode away, no heavy impact. and the colour on that video was perfect
  • + 3
 Definatly my favourite rider of the new generation, such unique style and edits, can't wait till he nails another banger rampage run
  • + 1
 Any special tune on that rear shock @reecewallace? I am guessing the fast speed rebound is probably adjusted somehow. The only thing is the RS debonair plus dont have that type of adjustment. That slopestyle setup looks awesome btw!
  • + 7
 I ran a heavy tune (shock shims) and max PSI for this video. Other then that, the bike is pretty much stock!
  • + 3
 Finally, been waiting for this for ages! Soo good.
  • + 2
 Love the crossover. Ride my dirtbike in the park, so why not ride a Reign on a dirt spot?
  • + 1
 Sweet video. Just started building a new line at my local yesterday, going to be taking quite a bit of inspiration from this.
  • + 3
 the reign is so badass
  • + 1
 Sick video, can't believe you're hitting all that on an enduro bike. Keep up the great work Reece!
  • + 1
 Great work Reece. Looks like you've graduated to the next level. Congrats on your hard work!
  • + 1
 Amazing! Were the jumps built different in preparation for the squishy bike?
  • + 1
 Are these 27.5 wheels cause they look a bit small....or is just the low tyre profile?
  • + 2
 I think its the low profile part getting to you. It looks like it fits pretty well into the rear triangle.
  • + 2
 That flip step down is so crazy, landing is steeper then lip.
  • + 2
 That was sweet. Rad building, and props on the riding!
  • + 2
 Damn, that was sick. Great building, riding and filming.
  • + 1
 Any idea what this song is?
  • + 0
 was that a light saber at :25?!! Wouldn't be surprised if Reece was a jedi....
  • + 2
 SHRED!!!
  • - 2
 Just me that felt the song didnt fit the video? just seemed like the video had been made and then a song slapped ontop. Other than that some sick riding and dope jumps.

 sweet digs

 Oddly enough, "the perfect mix of clay and sand" is actually called loam.
  • + 0
 sand? hahahahaha
  • + 1
 @marlon-d: Absolutely. Good for gardening and such. From wikipedia: "a soil with roughly equal proportions of sand, silt, and clay".
