The OMG Tune & Service Shop - Jordie Bike Service
At OMG we consider our service department the heart and soul of our shop. It is what keeps you biking, skiing, and riding. Without our service shop, and without you trusting us with your gear, we do not exist. With that being said, we have decided to honor our culture of the gnar by naming our tunes after people that we have lost and have affected our lives and our industry in a positive way.
Today we highlight Jordie Lunn.

Jordie's appearance was, to some, intimidating with his tattoos, size, and gold teeth, but in contrast he was a gentle and friendly guy. Being a MTB coach, he was adored by his students. He was a positive and friendly person that loved this sport and gave everything he had to it.
Jordie started his MTB career in the cross country world but started racing downhill. In 2003 he was the highest ranked DH racer in North America. Eventually, he left racing to pursue freeriding films like The Collective and ROAM.

On October 19, 2019 we lost Jordie to a fatal head injury while trail riding in Mexico.
