Aaron Clark Advocacy Manager - Government Relations

Aaron is a gearhead by birth and dropper-post lovin' weight-weenie by choice. Having discovered a lifelong love for all things bikes back in Detroit in the early 90's (aboard his fully rigid, budget-minded Nishiki Crossroads, no less) he began racing his bike all over the Michigan woods. This eventually led Aaron to Colorado and eventually to IMBA in 2012 where he works on backcountry mountain bike trail access, policy and legislation as part of the Government Relations team. In his little spare time, Aaron coaches cyclocross at a local high school. His best rides are with his wife and two boys who, after careful crafting, now share his love for riding.

Terry was born and raised in South Florida in an era when kids could roam free. As a young girl, bicycling was a form freedom to explore Miami just as riding horseback was her way of exploring the Everglades. After 12 years of being a roadie, her mountain biking career started in 2004 when she went on a mountain biking tour of Wales with her future husband, Mike. This experience inspired her to advocate for mountain biking in the community of Ellijay, GA, as president of the Ellijay Mountain Bike Association and the office manager for the Cartecay River Bicycle Shop.

Ximena and her husband, Dov Torenberg, founded MicroEdge Inc., a company dedicated to developing software to manage the grant making process of foundations and corporate giving programs. She served as the President of MicroEdge and was primarily responsible for sales, marketing, strategic planning and business development.

In 2007 Ximena and Dov bought a failing local bike shop and restored it back to health.  In the process, introducing a new generation of riders to mountain biking. From 2011 thru 2014, Ximena, together with the bike shop and a group of volunteers organized and led a charity ride (Ride to Fight Hunger), which raised close to $250,000 for the Jewish Family Service Foundation.  In 2013 Ximena joined the board of that non-profit and served on its strategic planning and development committee until 2015.


Ximena’s goal in joining the board is to use her position to continue to encourage more women into the sport and to use her experience with grant making to assist IMBA with its fundraising. She lives in Prescott, AZ.
