IMBCS Racer Spotlight: Emily Robnett

It’s time for a new racer Spotlight for all to read. This weekend brings up the second IMBCS race of our season: The Beverly Park Fat Tire Frenzy in Cedar Rapids, Iowa!

In case you’ve missed any of our previous Spotlights here at IMBCS.org, we continue with our feature series of highlighting some of the many IMBCS participants throughout the state of Iowa. You can get to know some of the folks involved in racing and see how they do it, why they do it, what got them started, and read some of their thoughts. We will continue this feature throughout the season. You might be next, so check your email box for a Spotlight interview!

IMBCS.org Spotlights will attempt to provide a nice representation of ages, categories, and locations to introduce you to people you may or may not know so you can read their thoughts about racing mountain bikes. Are you considering racing in an IMBCS event this year? You don’t have to be a member of a team. You don’t have to have an expensive bike. You don’t have to have matching socks. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner, a seasoned veteran, male, female, young, old, tall, less tall – mountain biking in IMBCS events is open to everyone. We will show that in our Spotlight series and encourage you to sign up for a race and give IMBCS a try.

Today’s Spotlight features one of the 2013 IMBCS Series Winners, Emily Robnett.

IMBCS.org Spotlights will provide a nice representation of ages, categories, and locations to introduce you to people you may or may not already know so you can read their thoughts about racing mountain bikes.

Today’s Spotlight feature is the first Spotlight featuring one of the 2015 IMBCS Race Directors, Noel Kehrt. I know you will find it interesting to hear from the perspectives of what makes IMBCS happen – our Race Directors – in these series of interviews. The job of being a race director is never easy. It deserves plenty of kudos, thanks, and respect for those who go out of their way to provide us with a venue, an event, and an IMBCS race. It’s mentally, physically, and emotionally taxing to add directing a race to one’s normal routine of family, friends, work, sleep, recreation, and riding bikes. If you ever want to know who the race director is when you get to one of our events, just look for the person with heavy bags under their eyes on race day. That will be the race director.
