Just in time for the start of the spring riding season, we’ve got a crisp new issue of Enduro Magazine that’s fresh off the printers and packed full of exciting content to get you warmed up after winter. We always feel like proud parents when each new issue of Enduro comes out, but we’re especially proud of this issue, as we celebrate the recent and ongoing success of our Aussie World Cup XC heroes: Bec Henderson & Dan McConnell. Being our 25th edition, this issue is a special one for us, and as such we’re featuring 2 different covers for the issue. With the incredible success of both Dan McConnell and Bec Henderson on the World Cup circuit, we honestly couldn’t decide who was more deserving of the front cover of Enduro Magazine…so we decided to give it to them both! Half of the printed copies will have Bec on the cover, and the other half will have D-Mac. Along with the beautiful spread of photos inside, both cover shots were taken by Tim Bardsley-Smith, who has been capturing all the Aussie success on the World Cup circuit.
Inside Issue #25, we’ve got in-depth interviews with the cover models themselves, as well as some great content to get you inspired for a brand new riding season. This edition is packed full of product reviews and features, including an up-close look at the new XTR Race disc brakes, the carbon Roam wheels from SRAM and somehow we’ve managed to pack in 7 bike reviews! There is Wil Barrett’s coverage from the 2014 GT Sensor/Force Launch in Utah, Shane Taylors technical piece on 650B conversions, a great piece on Gravity Enduro with the Giant Bicycles ranger himself; Josh Carlson, and a must-read piece from Steve Partridge, who has chosen Issue #25 as the finale to his well-loved column. Our best wishes for the future Steve!
Issue # 25, or as we like to call it; our “Silver Anniversary Issue”, is currently on its way to subscribers and will be on newsagent shelves from Monday the 2nd of September. If you’re thinking right now “that’s right, I’ve been meaning to subscribe!” then hurry on over to the Subscriptions Page, so you can have the very first copy of issue of Enduro Magazine sent straight to your door. And why not hook yourself up with a sweet little package deal why you’re at it? We’ve got ESI grips, Enduro jerseys, Lizard Skins chainstay protectors – and lots more goodies for your riding pleasure!
So there it is – Dan & Bec on the front cover, doing us all here in Australia proud! From all of the Enduro Team, congratulations to the entire Aussie team who competed at the South Africa World Champs over the past weekend, and we hope that Dan & Bec can continue their success on the World Cup circuit with the remaining two rounds. For everyone else out there, we hope you enjoy reading and soaking up all the beautiful images in the latest issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together.
Enjoy the ride!
