The rainy season has really put a damper on our riding schedules. First delayed, then postponed, and worst, just plain cancelled.Hopefully the rains have come and gone, and have left us a nice muddied trail to ride, enjoy, and leave behind those drenched cycling shorts. In this issue, we visit the Bathala Bike Park (p.22), testing their pump tracks and harnessing our handling skills to loosen up our bodies and gain new techniques we can use on the trails for a better riding flow. We also visit Singapore (p.54), to experience the passion for mountain biking and to see how the love for mountain biking flourishes in a country with no mountains. With a few more issues left in the year, be sure that we will continue to strive and fill the void between rides providing a wide variety of the different aspects important to our lifestyle.
