2nd Trail Building School IMBA Italia
Presented by 4Guimp April 16/17, Turin - Italy

After a first edition in the Province of Bologna last year, IMBA Italia in collaboration with IMBA Trail Solutions and IMBA Europe will host a trail building school presented by 4Guimp.

4Guimp, an Italian company that distributes some high-end brands such as Ibis and Evoc, decided to celebrate its 10th anniversary by partnering with IMBA Italia for this TBS. Enrico Guala, owner of 4Guimp, has been an mtb trail advocate for all of its career; he is one of the founders of the 24hr of Finale and of the Enduro World Series and he was able to involve Evoc, one of the most sought out mtb equipment brands.

IMBA Italia considers 4Guimp the perfect partner to carry on its mtb trail advocacy effort.

Participants will learn all of the basics of trail maintenance and construction according to IMBA Trail Solutions curriculum.

The TBS will last a whole weekend and the instructors (IMBA Trail Solutions) will lecture in English while the IMBA Italian staff will translate into Italian.

The format involves 4 hrs of theory, and 12 hrs of practical work on actual trails. Forty will be the participants from Italy and other European countries.
