Early December in Portland OR, when the weather forecast calls for 20% chance of rain, it's going to rain. When it calls for 20% chance of snow, it won't. That is unless you're building a pump track in a parking lot to race on. In that case, yes it most definitely will snow. Them's the breaks, baby. Even though a light dusting of snow can shut down the entire city of Portland, it can't shut down the fire in our hearts and the over whelming urge to get rad despite inclement weather. That's why we teamed up with Fat Tire Farm to bring Dirty Doubles to the brave of heart, to the people who laugh in the face of danger, and the people who'd rather be cold and taking sweet jump on some bikes, than snuggled up warm on the couch in front of the TV. A lot of different kinds of people showed up that night and everyone had a common thread besides bikes.... they were all tough as fuck.
