A Rider’s Perspective on the Oregon Dunes

OregonDunes

A little less than a year ago, I created a video on the Oregon Dunes regarding proposed closures that were coming down the pipeline. This video then became part of an article published here at Pit Traffic. Over the course of about a week, it spread like wildfire and raised awareness. In fact, it actually caused the website to crash.

Colt Brinkerhoff Race Report: Australian Finke Desert Race

2015 Australian Tatts Finke Desert Race, Alice Springs, Australia

This race became a BIG undertaking for me, with making the¬†decision to go race and have an epic vacation with my now, fianc√©e Rachel, it¬†was going to take a lot of preparation to do this. I started by contacting the¬†owner of The Quad Squad Australia, Adam¬†Siemensma to see¬†if I could use his quad for Finke. He obliged and the work began. I started to¬†fund raise by giveaways from my awesome sponsors, gofundme page, selling¬†advertising space on my t-shirts, selling the t-shirts, and by helping my¬†parents sell their condo to make the rest of the cash. I sent my suspension,¬†wheels/tires, gear and a camping setup for Rachel and I to Australia. Thanks to¬†Fasst Company for helping me get it shipped away. I employed my now friend,¬†Cade Cowdin (owner of Official Strength in St. George), to help me get the¬†physical and mental strength to 100%. It was literally a transformation for me;¬†I have never been that mobile, fast, powerful and strong in my life. I knew in¬†my mind that no one was working harder in the gym than me and I know it would¬†translate when it got tough out there. Sam at Dirt Fiend Racing brought back¬†the popular ‚ÄúTank‚ÄĚ graphics kit to represent America. I was ready to get down¬†to the Outback mate!¬† I have to thank¬†everyone that helped me get to this race and fulfill a dream. You don‚Äôt know¬†how much it meant to me to try to win and represent for the USA!

Tyler Nelson Albany Race Report

Rounds 5 and 6 of Quadcross Northwest at Albany MX are in the books and they did not disappoint!IMG_4235 I had the trailer loaded up early in the week and we took off Friday afternoon to get some good seats to watch the Portland traffic! After a six plus hour drive on what should have been four, we pulled in and set up camp. I saw some new faces as well as some old faces that decided to dust off the boots and get back at it. Oh, and I met some guy named Joe Byrd. He is a big deal or something.
