news MTB Hall of Fame Induction Weekend Celebration

The Mountain Bike Hall of fame is now ramping up for a fabulous weekend in Fairfax to honor and induct four legends of our sport. Don’t miss the festivities at the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, Friday and Saturday September 22-23, in Fairfax, California. Events include a meet-and-greet Friday night; celebrity rides on the trails of Mt. Tamalpais Saturday morning, followed by a dinner and induction ceremony that evening. Great times await — get your tickets today!

These mountain biking legends will be honored and officially inducted at the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame’s induction weekend – and the four new Inductees for 2017 represent wonderfully diverse mountain biking backgrounds and expertise:

Brent Foes   A master fabricator, Brent “Made in the USA” Foes is the father of long-travel-suspension mountain bikes that have passed the test of time. It is not uncommon to see ten-year-old Foes bikes still being used by happy owners. His ability to push the envelope has led to better mountain bikes for everyone.

Giovanna Bonazzi  This Italian downhill racer’s international presence helped join European and American mountain bike competition into a unified sport. Her success and panache captured the imaginations of other women and inspired them to get into downhill racing as international professionals.

Mark Norstad   An unsung hero of mountain bike innovation, Mark, founder of Paragon Machine Works, has the proven ability to work with mountain bike innovators, understand and refine their ideas, and turn their designs into solid, reliable bicycle parts.

Wolfgang Renner   A true renaissance man, Wolfgang has left his mark on mountain biking as a manufacturer, journalist, race organizer, traveler and 3-D photographer. In a nutshell, he is mountain biking’s first advocate and promoter in Europe.

Tickets are on sale now. Seating for the dinner & induction ceremony is extremely limited and we expect the event to sell out so get yours today.
