The International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) is adding several new positions to the organization. These new roles will be key as IMBA focuses on telling its story and working more closely with its chapters, partners and sponsors as mountain biking continues to gain popularity. These positions will help IMBA reach a broader mountain bike audience by focusing on heightened chapter engagement, elevated partner relations and programs that develop the sport.

Michelle Barker, IMBA’s Region Director for both the Midwest and Pacific Northwest regions, has been promoted to the new position of Director of Chapter and Regional Development. Her efforts will focus on developing and implementing more efficient, effective resources for chapters and regions and cultivating stronger engagement. Barker will be reporting to Bruce Alt, Vice President of Government Relations, Access and Advocacy.

“Barker’s background in education and her success growing community partnerships regionally will be huge assets as we build the next phase of IMBA’s chapter network,” said Alt.

Aimee Ross, former Development Manager, has been promoted to Director of Business Development. Ross will expand funding opportunities while ensuring IMBA’s vision integrates with its partner relationships, and will facilitate cross-departmental collaboration between IMBA and its partners.

Great Lakes Region Director Andy Williamson has been promoted to Director of Program Development. Williamson will will be working with chapter leaders and staff to design and execute a full range of programmatic strategies and initiatives that support IMBA’s mission, strategic plan and chapter services.

Both Ross and Williamson will report to Aaron Locker, Vice President of Development.

“Ross is an industry veteran responsible for many of the great partnerships IMBA has today, and Williamson is a proven executive with not-for-profit program development and management experience,” said Locker. “We have an incredible team at IMBA full of great ideas, and we are all thrilled about the momentum these new positions will bring to the association.”

On November 12, in conjunction with the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s 2016 World Summit in Bentonville, Arkansas, IMBA is hosting a separately ticketed VIP Experience. Although the World Summit is sold out, tickets are still available for the day-long VIP event featuring a guided mountain bike ride and evening reception.

The day will begin with a VIP group ride with attendees joined by riding legends and pros including Danny MacAskill, Hans Rey, Ryan Leech, Dave Wiens, Nat Ross, Syd Schultz and Macky Franklin, among others. The ride will take guests through some of the most amazing singletrack in the Northwest Arkansas region, between the Springfield Plateau and the Boston Mountains in the Ozark Mountains. The guided group ride will include aid station support and a catered lunch by Pedaler's Pub.

That evening, guests can mix and mingle with mountain bike icons, bike industry leaders, local dignitaries and IMBA board members at a reception and auction to benefit IMBA hosted at Record, Bentonville’s newest downtown event venue. Emcee Nat Ross will be joined by Jenn Dice of People for Bikes, Joey Klein of IMBA and Hans Rey.

IMBA is pleased to welcome Tom Walton, committee chair for the Walton Family Foundation Home Region Program, as keynote speaker for the reception.

“Trails have transformed the quality of life in Northwest Arkansas by revitalizing downtowns, connecting cities and preserving natural beauty,” said Walton. “We hope experiencing firsthand the impact cycling has had in this region will inspire others to support trail development in every community.” Arkansas is home to four IMBA Epics, three Ride Centers and Northwest Arkansas boasts IMBA’s only Regional Ride Center designation.

“We can’t think of a better place than Bentonville to celebrate the burgeoning impact trails can have on a local community,” said Aimee Ross, Director of Business Development for IMBA.

The reception will feature a silent auction, live auction and paddle raise to benefit IMBA. All auctions will be hosted by the Handbid app to allow worldwide participation for anyone who wants to contribute but cannot attend in person. Register for Handbid in advance and visit IMBA’s auction page starting November 9 for silent auction bidding and during the VIP Reception to participate in the live auction and paddle raise. The reception will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. CST, Saturday, November 12, with the silent auction closing at 7:30 p.m. and live auction beginning at 8:10 p.m.

While IMBA’s World Summit is sold out, tickets are available for the VIP Experience.

Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored. eastwood mountain biking rochester ma
