Issue 204 – Out now!

Your local bike shop or seller of media should be well stocked with the latest issue of Dirt Rag. Inside the pages you’ll find:

Anka Martin teaches us how to be enduro, Sonya Looney takes us through Stage Racing 101, and Jocelyn Gaudi Quarrel guides us through the ins and outs of bikepacking.

We’ve got product reviews related to each of those topics, including reviews of the Canyon Strive, BMC Speedfox and Penhale Gypsy.

Access brings us to the stories of hard-working trails crews that keep us all riding when Mother Nature decides to rearrange the trails with some fires, hurricanes and earthquakes.

Preparing for the Baja Divide brings us an inside view of a different approach to riding in far-off lands.

Watts tries to come to terms with the want to leave and his want to build where he is. Stevil talks about the science of dirt making us happy. Real science, not fake news science.

Lots and lots more in the pages of this issue, including a healthy dose of illustrations.

Thanks for reading.
