Above: Kris McCreath AKA Parrot, ripping around the berm toward the hut. Every November since 2012, we've ran a jam to commemorate the life of our friend, team rider and absolute savage trail rider, Dane Searls. We have never wanted the D.A.N.E. jam to be the only jam to pay respect to his legendary life, nor should it be.

Some of the crowd, stoked to have a crew arrive despite the time change. Photo: Tyson Jones-Peni Six years have passed since Dane Searls' passed away, it never gets any easier to think of the reason why this jam is held.
