The Mountain Bike Hall of Fame (MBHOF) has opened up submissions for nominations, which will remain open from now until April 15, 2018. Nominations are for those who have made a substantial contribution to the sport of mountain biking.
Submitting a proposed nominee is a simple process. The MBHOF asks that individuals visit its website for complete nomination submission instructions and ‘keep in mind that submissions must be received before April 15, 2018 to be considered’.
The MBHOF is an international entity representing the world of mountain biking. The organisation’s charter is to recognize those who have shaped the sport and who have had widespread influence. These individuals may have been working out of their garage, through a brand, an organization or in competition. Whether building bikes, building trails or racing, MBHOF adds that ‘a worthy candidate will have contributed something more than a great track record’. A strong candidate ‘will have shifted the paradigm and changed the way we look at things going forward. Their contribution will have as much significance 10 or 20 years from now as it does today.’
The Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, founded in Crested Butte, Colorado, in 1988, now resides inside the Marin Museum of Bicycling, a bicycle history museum and cultural centre in Fairfax, California. The Marin Museum of Bicycling is a registered 501(c)(3) educational non-profit organisation, entirely volunteer-created and volunteer-run.
