CORBA Al Farrell Award Recipients

The acknowledgement on the original award, called the CORBA/Al Farrell Award in honor of one of mountain biking’s patron saints Dr. Al Farrell, stated “Given in recognition of outstanding contributions to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and all of its visitors.” In 2005 it changed to the CORBA Award and reads “Extraordinary Dedication and Contribution to Mountain Biking Recreation”
