COPMOBA Board of Directors
Scott Winans, President (Grand Valley Canyons Chapter)
Scott is an immigrant from south of the border with requisite blond hair and a ponytail. His many facets of income and interests led him to the Grand Valley a number of years ago after receiving a degree in aeronautical engineering and working as a rocket scientist….not that a lot of local riders weren’t already talking about how many “rocket scientists” COPMOBA had on the board. Scott’s engineering prowess nowadays is used to develop products for MRP, which are designed for the dual purpose of allowing mountain bikers to both ride and enrich their ER doctors faster. Scott is co-owner of Rapid Creek Cycles in Palisade and currently serves as President of COPMOBA and is an inspiration to all that he drinks with. For fun, Scott can be found humiliating those of normal riding skill on several of our local technical trails.

Sven Edstrom (Delta Area Mountain Bikers)
If you've run into a striking Swede on Smith Mountain or the Sidewinder Trail you may have felt Sven Edstrom breeze past you, bike maniac in action. His lovely wife, Elsie, and their two enthusiastic bike-Bettys in-training are sure to be in hot pursuit. Sven is a Colorado boy, save for a stint with the U.S. Geological Survey in Puerto Rico, where he perfected a charming broken version of Spanish and biking in 100% humidity. What doesn't break you... He grew up in Gunnison, chasing after his two older brothers and sister, blazing their own trails well before mountain biking became such a "thing" in Gunnison County. He is passionate about making mountain biking a "thing" in Delta County and to that end, in addition to his day job of building custom homes, Sven juggles meetings with community members, government agencies, and other local entities to make the dream of a robust Mountain Biking Culture a reality in Delta County.
