Who Makes Mountain Biking Happen in Your Town?     
Mark Savard from Williams Lake, 2015 winner and here are his thoughts:

“The nomination came as a huge surprise to me, what a wild ride!  I suffered but in the best possible way. The event allowed me to visit riding communities in my province that I hadn't made the effort to get to yet, the small town reception's in Powell River was amazing.  I made some great friends from around the world, having run a bike shop for 25 plus years I wasn't fully aware of the scope of family that's out there rolling sweet single track.

Joel Harwood was nominated the year before and here are his thoughts: 
“The nomination for the KazLaw Community Award was a huge compliment. Words cannot express how thankful I am for the nomination and support from my friends, family, and the Squamish community. The race was an incredible experience. 7 days of amazing trails with amazing people. Spending the evenings hanging out with racers from all over the world and sampling the local restaurants and pubs made the week even more memorable. BCBR should be on every mountain biker's bucket list.”

We're asking you to nominate a deserving rider in your community; someone you feel has earned this award!  Could be a trail builder, a volunteer, a young deserving rider, an organizer of a community club and the list goes on.
