Jeremy Fancher, a University of Denver Sturm College of Law 2009 LLM graduate from the Environmental and Natural Resources Law & Policy program, has been hired as a policy analyst and in-house counsel by the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA).
According to the IMBA, which seeks to create, enhance and preserve mountain biking experiences worldwide, Mr. Fancher will "lead the IMBA's efforts to shape national mountain bike and public lands policies by working closely with many federal partners including the National Park Service, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, as well as meeting with officials from state and local governments."
Mr. Fancher said, "I am thrilled to join IMBA and contribute to the legacy of developing and preserving mountain biking opportunities on public lands."
During high school Jeremy began mountain biking in the hills near Santa Barbara, California. However, his time on a bike declined while he was playing football for Azusa Pacific University. After a period of not riding, he returned to his bike after viewing the Lifetime Fitness Leadville 100 mountain biking event.
He will be based in IMBA's Boulder headquarters.
