Issue 48 is all but there at the printers now (OK, so about a dozen pages will have to go tomorrow morning – sorry Warners!)

Lots of great stuff in this one, including some cracking stories of how we all started mountain biking, some properly epic riding and a new series – ‘One Ton Weekends’ where we challenge people to have the most mountain biking fun for a oner – £100. Whether it’s a super budget trip for ten people, or an indulgent skills session with a pro rider’ – we’ve already got a string of them to shoot in the next couple of months, but suggestions are always welcome.

But today, it’s our mate Stanny’s birthday, so we’re off to the pub… And that’s another 12 hour day already… We’re off. C’mon Sim!
