Lander’s new Dirt Jump Park opens with a crowd

(Lander, Wyo.) – A crowd of local youths and adults, along some professional mountain bikers, jammed at grand opening of Lander’s dirt bike park on Saturday. This is the first professionally designed dirt bike park in the state. The construction was funded primarily through local nonprofit Mission Possible with donations from a number of local businesses.

Organizer and effort leader Jim Donahue said even more improvements to the park are planned, such as adding trees, grills, picnic tables and a sprinkler system.
