We gave you the heads up here about Victor Lucas’ latest project, but now his Lowdown MTB Guide to Europe is finally available via iTunes. He’s done a great job too, the whole thing is super slick and full of useful insider info. It goes without saying that it is also full of incredible photos. Currently 25 locations are featured and this number will grow as Victor updates the app throughout the year. We reckon it’s definitely worth buying if you’re looking to plan a trip this summer…and you have an iPad.
Here’s the press release…
