Reviews

As one review of Misspent Summers on Trustpilot says, “When a printed magazine … is more immersive, more captivating and more real than watching the event live on TV, you know the writers and photographers are doing something right.”

Photography

For a masterclass in mountain biking photography, look no further than Hurly Burly and The World Stage, featuring hundreds of the best downhill and enduro MTB images by the sport’s top photographers – including principal photography by Boris Beyer, Sebastian Schieck and Sven Martin. The images are printed to the best standards on high-quality semi-gloss paper – semi-gloss is preferable to ultra-glossy as it minimises light reflections while producing vibrant, punchy colours.

Reporting and writing

Every round of 2023 UCI Downhill Mountain Bike World Cup and Enduro World Cup racing is covered in Hurly Burly’s and The World Stage’s detailed reports, written by dozens of expert contributors, that dissect and immortalise the season of racing. Additionally, standalone features, analysis, illustrations, and diagrams break down the standout characters, courses, and stories from the year.

Design and production

Every Misspent Summers MTB book is made with extreme attention to detail by a group of print experts with hundreds of years of combined experience. The team includes prominent industry figures who have edited and designed some of mountain biking’s most iconic media, notably Dirt Magazine.
