CORBA Nominated for the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame

We’re proud to announce that CORBA has been nominated for inclusion in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame, located in Crested Butte, Colorado, celebrates the contributions of the many who have shaped and guided our sport’s history.

Among CORBA’s past and current board members, volunteers and founders are three current inductees in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame. Kurt Loheit, Jim Hasenauer, Dr. Al Farrell and the late Charlie Litsky have all been inducted for their roles as individuals, but all contributed to CORBA’s growth and successes, along with numerous other stalwart advocates.

This nomination could not have come at a more appropriate time, as CORBA celebrates 25 years of mountain bike advocacy in 2012.  We sincerely appreciate and are deeply honored by Dr. Al Farrell’s nomination, which can be viewed online on the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame web site.

Past inductees, press and current voting members of the non-profit Hall of Fame are sent ballots to vote on this year’s nominees. Membership is $20 per year, and allows you to vote on the current nominees. When in Crested Butte, a visit to the museum is a great lesson in the sport’s history. Each year between three and seven individuals or groups are inducted from a slate of nominees.

Voting will take place over the summer, with the 2012 induction ceremony to be held at Interbike on September 21. Of course we’d appreciate your vote, and are honored to be listed alongside several other well-deserving nominees in the Advocacy category.
