“ West Virginia Tops 2004 IMBA Report Card”
Click Here to Vie2004 IMBA Report Card Results
For the first time, a state east of the Mississippi River has taken top-honors in the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) Report Card.

West Virginia received the highest grade in the 2004 edition of IMBA's annual survey of mountain biking. The Mountain State has everything a mountain biker could want: endless miles of backcountry singletrack, stunning Appalachian Mountain scenery and a community of avid riders. The West Virginia Mountain Biking Association has emerged as one of the top mountain bike advocacy groups in the nation, balancing trailwork, advocacy, riding and racing to appeal to a broad spectrum of cyclists. But what really sets West Virginia apart is the support of government agencies like the state tourism department and governor's office.

The IMBA Report Card is a tool to let IMBA members and mountain bikers know where we're doing well and where energy needs to be focused. This is the sixth edition of the IMBA Report Card.

For Immediate Release 12-13-04
