Meet the IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew
Hitting the road for the 2015 season is former TCC member AJ Strawson. AJ is excited to use his past trail building and GIS experience to help IMBA Canada clubs and volunteers to create great trail experiences all across Canada. AJ has a background in environmental studies, GIS mapping, and a certificate in Sustainable Trails from Fleming College.
Joining AJ on the road is Justin Truelove. Justin is the newest member of the IMBA Canada family and he is excited to come aboard as the Trail Care Crew Leader for the 2015 season. He has been involved in the planning and running of mountain bike races, the development and instruction of new and experienced riders as well as enjoying the occasional race from time to time. A graduate of Capilano University’s Mountain Bike Operations Program, Justin has had some great experience in the field as a mountain bike guide in the Yukon backcountry, as well as a brief stint as a professional trail and bike park builder. Justin is excited to bring his experience and expertise to the IMBA Canada family and pass that knowledge along to the local clubs and national parks that he visits with the Trail Care Crew program across Canada.
Previous Trail Care Crews:
Igor's trail work extends back to the 90's with his local club in southern Ontario, building on a passion for mountain biking since the early days of fat tires. Igor has been the IMBA Canada Provincial Coordinator for Ontario since late 2011, and his background as a Physical Geography Instructor at Wilfrid Laurier University brings together a host of research, education and field experience. He looks forward to meeting key partners, clubs members, and the public during the 2014 visits.
AJ and Rachael
