G-Ride 4x NPS Round 2
at Surfin' Dirt / GASP Ireland, Bryansford, County Down

With the sun splitting the trees and with a backdrop to die for, the 4X race at Surfin' Dirt on the edge of Tollymore Forest was eagerly anticipated by team überdog.

4X, beautiful in its simplicity, involves four bikes at a time ripping up 400 metres of doubles, gaps, drops and berms. First bike past the post takes the prize - simple. The racing was fast and furious throughout the day and everyone had a real blast. Between the races, entertainment came in the form of the dirt surfin' boys who wowed us with gravity-defying jumps, back somersaults and a few dramatic spills.

After the racing was done, the bikes and boards started hitting the biggest of Surfin' Dirt's ramps. Well, you know how it goes... one challenge lead to another and so on... queue the car jumping!
