This first trip below the equator has been a massive success. Not only for the series but for the local community of riders who lapped-up every bit of it.

The second year of the Enduro World Series kicked off in style in Chile, and we’ve got the full low-down on this incredible race.

The ten-minute descents through massive douglas fir are an explosion of loam laden treats littered with root and snared by awkward drops.

We headed to the Pacific North West to meet, amongst other people, the folk behind both Kona and Transition Bikes. It’s a special place, and a great story.

I spent most of my first day looking through the intricacies of the new DBInline shock – from shim stack to external adjustment. There is a lot going on in there.

James McKnight was lucky enough to get an exclusive inside look for us at the development of Cane Creeks new DBInline rear shock. This shock could mark the point at which a Cane Creek shock becomes a far more common site. Look out for next month’s feature on the incredible riding on offer in North Carolina, where Cane Creek are based.

Throw in a review on Scott’s Genius LT, a trip to the incredible mountains in Aosta, Italy, and a whole pile of other stuff, and it’s corker of an issue!
