Heard of Oakridge, Oregon? You can thank D-Rock for the stellar singletrack. A born and bred Oregon boy, Derrick lives, breathes, builds and rides mountain biking trails. He is often seen towing a BOB Trailer loaded with a chainsaw to clear big trees off the trails. Derrick also has a fondness for pie and naps, in that order.
