IMBA Trial School North Bay, Ontario
The International Mountain Biking Association's Subaru/Trail Care Crew is travelling from Colorado to Ontario to host a Trail Building School on September 6-8, 2002 at North Bay's Jack Pine Hill, Upper Lodge. This workshop is co-ordinated by the Discovery Routes Trails Organization in partnership with Jack Pine Hill.
Sponsored by Subaru of America and directed by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) the Trail Care Crew works with mountain-biking and multi-use trail clubs, land managers and trail users to build new trails, maintain and restore existing trails and to solve trail management challenges. The Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crews improve trail conditions and trail experiences for everyone. This workshop is a unique opportunity for anyone involved with multi-use trails to learn from the experts.
The Trail Building School will consist of a media presentation and luncheon followed by an indoor class session on Friday. Saturday will complete the Trail Building School with a day of outdoor field work. A social/ â€œRiding the World with IMBAâ€ slide show will take place Saturday evening. A fun ride will wrap up the workshop with a guided ride along the Jack Pine Hill Trails.
The public is invited to register by calling (705) 474-5420.
Registration price is $20 for one day and $35 for both. Attendees are asked to bring their own trail building tools (shovels, metal rakes and hoes) as well as their bikes!

World Solo 24 Hours of Adrenalin Championship
For the 3rd year in a row, Chris Eatough (Trek/VW), Great Britain, takes the title of World Solo 24 Hours of Adrenalin Champion. In spite of the severe weather conditions that had to be endured in the past final hours, Eatough held a solid 1st place standing, coming in through the finish line at 23:04:53 and finishing with 19 laps. "This was truly an epic race," reported Chris at the finish line.
In the Elite Female Solo category, Lesley Tomlinson (Rocky Mountain, Oakley, Nike), Canada, finished with an impressive time for her first 24 hour race, with 17 laps at 24:30:55. Says Tomlinson " I didn't know what I had gotten myself into, which was probably a good thing." Tomlinson is a 1996/2000 Canadian Mountain Bike Olympian and Commonwealth Games Silver Medalist and 1999 Pan American Championships Silver Medalist.
