What will you find in the August/September/October issue of MBA?

It’s been a year like no other and one that's certainly affected the mountain biking world in a big way.

Cancelled and postponed events, delayed launches and closed trails, it’s certainly been tough. 

That’s all reflected in the latest issue of Mountain Biking Australia – available in all good newsagents. 

There’s a big focus on MTB experiences in this issue, specifically ones you can look forward to trying when things (hopefully) get back to normal. 

Here’s what you can expect to see in the August/September/October edition!
