We officially begin the 2014 riding season with our long awaited 19th issue which will show you more hidden trails from the mighty Himalayas. Mountain biking culture has exploded in the country, featured events like the ‘Himalayan Trails n Dust’ & ‘Northeast CycloBHP racing’ are clear examples of this movement! In this issue join James Frampton as he continues his journey to explore and build more trails in the Himalayan region. This edition also features cool riders like Iggy who recently got into the Indian DH racing scene. Jackson Goldstone from Canada, probably the youngest shredder who has surprised us and all the pros out there. All this and much more. I hope you enjoy the issue while I gear up for some snowboarding.

Founder, Editor-in-Chief | vineet@freeridermag.in Hi5 for yet another awesome year of bicycle powered freedom! What a year it’s been, from Big Mountain shredding in the Himalayas to India’s first appearance at the Asian DH Champs. Twenty thirteen was incredible indeed. We saw the world’s rowdiest mountain bikers visit India in search for some high altitude freeriding in Leh region while Red Bull Media House sharedtheir remote mountain action with the world. As Japan’s Yohei Uchino tutored India’s top BMX flatlanders in Pune during the “Red Bull Street Maharaja” gig, India’s biggest unofficial downhill event – BBCH ‘Turahalli DH Madness’ saw faster timings than previous years. 2013 also brought in a top spot for Nepal in the Megavalanche Mega Kids race. The DH Races in Nepal gained momentum along with new tracks opening up. As 2014 has stepped in, lets get ready for some new bikes, fresh dirt and a bag full of good times! We at Freerider Mountain Bike Magazine wish all of yall wheel spinners a great riding season ahead!
