Cover of the year competition – Win a subscripiton to Dirt!

What were you doing in the year 2000? Myles Rockwell was winning the Downhill World Championships in Sierra Nevada, Spain. Rockwell’s story is a classic from the sport. He had the titles and fame but threw it all away. After a term in jail he started back on the long journey of life, this time outside of cycling. Now a father (of two), in 2012 he found himself working closely with the Trek World Racing team, and most noticeably World Cup Champion Aaron Gwin. It is a great story.
