Welcome to Short Travel Magazine!

We’re launching this channel to focus on cross-country mountain biking. There are many great websites and YouTube channels out there for mountain biking. Heck, there are great ones for road biking that I enjoy. But, my true love of cycling started when I began racing XC in 1991. The sport was still new, and it’s heros and stars were still being determined. Bike technology was going crazy, and the races were popping up everywhere. NORBA became the world standard for XC racing, and it began to draw in the europeans. The rest is history as they say.

Hope to see you at the races!
