What’s in the latest issue of MBA?

It’s that time of year again, MBA magazine time! We have a bumper issue for February/March/April 20 and can’t wait to share it with you. 

This issue takes us to some pretty weird places (geographically speaking). We follow five-time Tour de France rider Pat Jonker as he is introduced to mountain biking in the Himalayas. That’s right, you heard that correctly. Not the first place one thinks of when it comes to a beginner level and the story is certainly one to check out. 

Other features include WA icon Travis Deane’s musings on the Southern Peaks event down in Albany as well as Huw Kingston’s personal history with the new Thredbo Valley extension trail.


Bike tests put two offerings from Norco under the microscope, the Sight A2 and Torrent. There’s also a bonus new bike guide for 2020 with a wide variety of rigs previewed to help you make an informed choice. 

There’s plenty of gear reviews as well as your regular workshop step-by-step from the legendary John Hardwick. 

We hope you enjoy this issue! If you did, please consider subscribing to get your regular MTB fix delivered.
