Issue 154



What’s inside Singletrack World issue 154?

Let’s start with the cover – Pete Scullion does it again:

Photographer: Pete Scullion Rider: Joe Barnes Camera: Nikon D850 Camera Settings: Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8G VR II at 70mm. 1/2000, f8, ISO 640. About the shot: Joe Barnes doing Joe Barnes things in the shadow of Beinn Fhada’s northern ridges on one of those days where the sky stays blue, the legs have plenty of juice and the descents flow like water.
