who races mtb dirt jumpers?

i'm thinking of buying one and i want to know what they're like to race. i'll be going to college so i'll take one bike and i want to be able to race and commute. the second doesn't have to be that comfortable.

yeah. from what i've heard, the dj's have bmx based frame geometry. the one i'm looking at is a single speed and has a rear brake only. all i have to do is add a rigid front fork and i'd end up with what esentially is a cruiser.
