Spoke-55-nomadsThe Nomads are a Kiwi and an Aussie making a dent in the North American enduro scene, and they’ve really only just begun. We Get in The Van with them for a look at where they’ve been and where they’re going next.


Who is Ethan Glover? He probably won’t tell you, as he’d rather just get on his bike and get the job done in the fastest possible manner. We caught up with him to see where he’s taking his talent.


Hannah Barnes might be one of the fast girls on the EWS circuit, but she also likes to keep it real with the type of adventure rides we all dream about. She heads from Fort to Cape in Scotland for a bonny wee ride through mud, bogs and some stunning scenery.

Plus there’s a heap of great reading about innovators, influential figures, new products, bikes and bits we love, the best advice and of course the slickest photos of any mtb magazine, anywhere.
