A little bit about the volunteers on the board.
Chairperson – Mike Melley
Single speeder, website updater, local business owner, promoter, new dad, and cube jockey for the man. Re-Elected 2013.
Trails Director – Alan Shelton
New to the board, but not new to trails or trail work. Alan is not shy about his passion for the trails or making them better. We are stoked to have him on board and running full bore on some new ideas. Elected 2013.
Competition Director – Jon Shouse
Arguably, one the most involved mountain bikers/advocate/event specialists in the state. Jon was instrumental in helping preserve the original Fantasy Island trails in Tucson, has worked with the infamous Epic Rides, and can do it all. In fact, Jon has done most of it and is no slouch in the saddle to boot. Re-elected 2012.
Marketing Director – Open
Membership Director – – Brandee Lepak – Departing 2014!!
Bike shop owner (Global Bikes), Membership Director (MBAA), Photographer (By Brandee), Mom, wife, and most importantly, a vibrant voice for the MBAA on just about any topic you can dream up. Brandee knows her stuff, but apparently does not like to talk in front of crowds, gig is up…we’re gonna make her! Re-elected 2012
Recreation Director – OPEN
Administrative Director – Jeff Frost (aka “Frosty”)
Known for his riding, event promoting, and all around skills around an event, this guy is a Swiss army knife. He can ride all day and all night and still put on a helluva an event the next day. Frosty works with the big boys at Sea Otter, promotes the AZCross series and has been a part of the mountain bike community since he helped create it.
