The latest issue of Australian Mountain Bike has hit the shelves of newsagents (our your letter box if you're a subscriber!) and this issue has a huge feature on our recent AMB Photography Awards presented by Shimano.

You might have seen our post in the middle of October, which outlined the overall Photographger of the Year, the Local Shooter winner and of course our category winners and place getters. No? Well go check it out now.

In the latest issue, we have interviews with the overall winner Mark Mackay, and with the Local Shooter Kristina Vackova, plus insights into the winning shots by each category winner.

We also have plenty of news, including an interview with XC superstar Bec McConnell, plus highlights from the recent World Championships - including XC, DH and Marathon.

There's a recap of Reef to Reef thanks to Anna Beck, who relives the four days of trails, tales and ales in Tropical North Queensland.

The back of the magazine is packed with reviews. That includes a full review of the Shimano XTR M9100 12-speed group set, after plenty of trail time, and time under pressure in racing as well.


There are also reviews of the latest eMTB tyres from Michelin, a dropper post from Funn and of course our bike tests. We tested two bikes that come direct from manufacturers - the Canyon Neuron CF 9.0 LTD and the Marin San Quentin 3.

Ordering and building a Canyon mountain bike - we test the Neuron CF 9.0 LTD from AMBmagazine on Vimeo.

We also tested the all-new Trek Top Fuel 9,9 - what a weapon!

Of course we have a bunch of our regular content from valued contributors. Jared Rando takes through perfecting a hip jump, Anna Beck analyses how to best train and perform within a menstrual cycle, and the crew at Summit Cycles go over how to rebuild Crankbrothers pedals with their maintenance kit.

That, and more, is all in our new issue. And right now we have an awesome subscription offer thanks to Whyte bikes, where you can enter to win a Whyte T130 SR when you subsribe!
