Many IMBA supporters love to get out and race, from weekend warriors to elite athletes. Or maybe you're getting ready to try your first mountain bike event. Feel free to ride under the IMBA banner and sport your IMBA jersey at your next event–you'll be part of Team IMBA. Members may receive a discounted entry at some events if they present a current IMBA membership, in addition to other great benefits and discounts. Why not join forces with others, to train for your goals and work together to enhance your local trail systems? Whether you are thinking about training for your first race or a seasoned veteran, proudly wear the IMBA Jersey, share your efforts and connect with others in your area to promote your involvement at your next race. When you ride for IMBA you're part of a grassroots network and family that represents the IMBA cause and comes together at events to reach for your goals and benefit your trails and the sport.
IMBA Clubs and Chapters that would like to set up a team can take advantage of the IMBA Primal Wear Custom Jersey Program, which will help in your visibility and provide a donation to fund raising efforts.
Events are great places to reach new riders to help the cause. IMBA has set up the Trail Love pledge drive to help you drive local registration and get new riders involved. Chapters or event promoters can use the Trail Love pledge page or membership [at] imba [dot] com (request) printed pledge sheets for events via email.
If you would like to fundraise in conjunction with your events, please contact us and we'll share some best practices and ideas. You may consider donating to and raising awareness for one of IMBA's campaigns.
When you ride for Team IMBA, you can take pride in knowing that you are productively giving back to our sport, encouraging other riders to get involved and caring for the environment and our trail systems. If you have any questions, please contact us at team [at] imba [dot] com.
