ELECTRICALLY-FUELED MOUNTAIN BIKE MASTERY
BROTHERS ED AND WYN MASTERS POWER UP THEIR RIDING IN QUEENSTOWN, NEW ZEALAND
For Ed and Wyn Masters, bikes have been a part of their lives from the very beginning. The dirt jumps the brothers built in their New Plymouth, New Zealand backyard served as an incubator for their now-successful careers in downhill and enduro mountain bike racing. It was also where their ever-competitive sibling rivalry sprouted into a life-long journey of heckling, one-upmanship and occasional trips to the emergency room.

HOW EDDY KING STOOD STRONG AND MADE THE COMEBACK OF HIS LIFE
Injuries are very much a part of life for competitive cyclists. The weeks, months and sometimes even years required to heal after severe trauma can send even the most hardened humans into a spiral of depression. Yet from pain can come strength, not only to survive but to live life to its very fullest again. After BMX Hall of Famer Eddy King suffered a devastating crash at Big Bear Bike Park in 2013, he spent years fighting his way back to anything resembling normalcy in his life.
DERRICK BELL: THE REBUILDER
A CAREER TRAIL BUILDER REFLECTS ON TIME WELL SPENT IN THE WOODS
One of the most respected proverbs in mountain biking - and one of the most loosely followed - is “no dig, no ride.” When your favorite pastime relies on manual labor to sustain itself, it’s often the work of the dedicated few that benefit the many. One of those few is Derrick Bell, a lifelong mountain biker and trail builder from Oakridge, Oregon. Over the last 25 years, Derrick has wielded chainsaws, pulaskis, shovels and rakes in order to help grow his local mountain bike community. Constantly searching for more efficient ways to dig in the forest, he now transports his tools and fuels with the assistance of an e-mountain bike and bob trailer.
