IMBA World Summit 2016 | Northwest Arkansas Photography

Christmas for me came early this year, in the form of a Media Pass from Bike Arkansas Magazine, for the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) World Summit. Bentonville played host to the biennial event which can best be summed up as THE all-inclusive mountain biking conference to attend. Groups of avid mountain bikers took to most if not all the "OZ Trails" during group rides led by local mountain bike organization members and proud residents of the area. There were seminars given on everything from trail advocacy and grant management, to improving your riding skills and how to get more than 3 feet of air. Major mountain bike companies showed up with loads of demo bikes for attendees to ride. Celebrity mountain bikers like the legendary Hans Rey and the ever-popular Danny Macaskill were on hand to demonstrate how to do navigate your bike on ordinary things like picnic tables, limbo poles and even motorized vehicles. Local pro Tandie Bailey received a lot of press as well, when her new video was shared at multiple IMBA gatherings throughout the weekend. My time was spent bouncing around the different events to hang out and document. Here's "a few" images. Enjoy.
