2006 IMBA Summit/World MTB Conference
Join us at the IMBA Summit/World Mountain Bike Conference, June 20-23, in Whistler, B.C.
We're so excited to be hosting the event in Whistler, the ideal location for a global gathering of mountain bike advocates. It is a model city for every kind of riding, from beginner trails to epic cross-country riding and, of course, the world famous Whistler Mountain Bike Park.

There's just two weeks left to take advantage of Early Bird pricing specials (regular pricing begins April 1). By acting now, you'll save $100 per registrant. Or get a group together and register three people but pay for only two (the third can register after the Early Bird deadline).
