The Lumberyard Indoor Bike Park Hosts Instructor Certification Program
The Lumberyard Indoor Bike Park in Portland, Oregon played host for the newly launched IMBA Instructor Certification Program (ICP). Headed by Lead Instructor Shaums March, a two-time masters world champion in downhill racing, ICP courses like this one offer professional training and certification for individuals who lead group rides or teach mountain bike skills clinics. Two members of IMBA's Trail Solutions staff also took part in the certification progress and after four days of instruction and training both Shane Wilson and Jason Wells are now Level 2 Certified Instructors. Courses covering three levels will be offered year-round all over the world, but primarily in the U.S., Canada and the UK.
