Streb rides through the "Creek of Doom" section
of Crags Road in Malibu Creek State Park
bike legend Marla Streb will lead a skills clinic and ride at this year's Fat
Tire Fest! We were all disappointed last year, when Marla had to cancel due to
a family emergency. This year Marla will be traveling to the FTF wth her husband
and new baby.
CORBA is also pleased that local cross-country racer Mikel
Aucutt, who placed Second in the Expert Masters this year, will be working with
Marla on the clinic and ride. Mark your calendar as it's barely a month away.

could use a few trucks or SUV's to shuttle everyone to the top. If you would
like to help with your vehicle that would be great. Send Hans, email@example.com an email to let him
