IDF 2016 Announcements

The IDF wants to keep you up to date on what’s NEW.  It may seem like there’s not a lot happening but things have never been more exciting or busier within the IDF.

We have many new projects to announce throughout March, including:

  • New Website
  • South American Tour announcement (plus 1 or 2 NEW latin event additions!)
  • New 2016 promo video produced by Yvon Labarthe of Flying Focus
  • Upcoming Annual General Meeting date and info

The most important update is the website migration and membership services.  Dutch volunteer, Berry Plasman, in co-operation with the IDF Board has been working for almost 6 months on our new IDF Website.

The website build is complete but while we migrate, we’ve had to put a freeze on new membership. Please be patient, we hope to have membership back online with the launch of the new website around March 12th. At that point we will re-open membership and a few days later we plan to launch registration for the 2016 Asian Tour plus a new spring event in Mexico. Click the ‘events’ tab above for a sneak peak.

Here’s a screen caption of the new site.  Read further below to learn about all the new benefits.

Here’s a few words from Berry:

“Since the Federation was founded, the IDF has tried to professionalize the downhill sport step by step. The new website is a huge step forward for our evolution.

The new website will go live in 2 separate phases.

Phase 1 is the website, complete with a new member and event registration system.
Phase 2 will be adding all the past news, reports, rankings and more.

What can you expect on the new website?

  • Every IDF member will get a public profile page (unlike the old site, where you had to register separately)
  • Upload your own profile photo
  • Embed your instagram feed
  • Display your sponsors on your profile
  • Upload a biography about yourself
  • A searchable members list with clickable profile names
  • We got rid of that activity timeline (in the sidebar)
  • See your membership expiration date on your profile
  • Reactivate your membership from your profile page
  • A list with all the most Frequently Asked Questions to help you find an answer more easily.”

Keep in mind more in-depth information will be emailed to all members in time for the site launch. To say the least, we are very excited about all of Berry’s (+ Colin + Koma’s) work and to launch the new website.

Get stoked for the biggest and best World Cup Downhill Tour the World has ever seen.
