It's that time of year again. No, not the time to overdose on copious amounts of thick, milky eggnog, but the time of year every dirt bike rider loves most ... winter. To most people, rain in Southern California means staying off the packed freeways to avoid drivers who have no idea how to drive in the "treacherous" conditions. But to dirt bike riders, it means so much more. When the news of rain comes from the mustache-sporting local meteorologist, it's as if God personally calls upon them to congregate in the hills for a holy ceremony of epic proportions.
Just last week, the man upstairs blessed the hills of Southern Calif. with two big storms, which unleashed pure greatness in the form of a downpour of rain that coated the famous Beaumont hills. So naturally, we gathered a sick group of riders including FMX ripper Destin Cantrell, and racers Billy Laninovich, Jarred Browne, and Ryan Beat to attack the hills as the mighty one had instructed.
