The June issue of Bike hits newsstands today, filled with images and stories designed to fuel the fire for the upcoming riding season. Photographer Ian Collins makes his Bike cover debut with an image of Brandon Semenuk from the “Deathgrip” shoot in Big Water, Utah, that illustrates why Semenuk is the most progressive rider in the sport.
Inside, we look at how the riding community in Calgary, Alberta, recovered after historic flooding ravaged their local trail networks. And in Helena, Montana, the town is so confident in mountain biking as an economic driver that it has started shuttling rider for free to its best downhill trails.
In the gear section, testers weigh in on the Scott Spark 900, the Why Cycles S7 and the Commencal Meta AM, and we showcase the best men’s and women’s wool jerseys on the market. Don’t miss the June issue of Bike, available on newsstands or by subscribing here.
