Q & A


Issue 78

Rejoice, for the final issue of 2012 has arrived! With a cyclocross supplement out back and the usual mix of sunshine, mountains, bikes and muddy boots up front, Singletrack are ready to party like it's 2013. Bring. It. On.

Cover: "Clichés are clichés for a reason, the Aletch Glacier proved that for me. Seeing its colossal bulk loom out of the clouds really did take my breath away. Dave, Joris and Cussy had been here before and it showed. From the pizzeria the night before up until the moment we stepped out of the cable car you could feel excitement building, right up until the moment we finally hit the ridge and the view revealed itself. A proper glacier set amongst some proper mountains, a world heritage site and quite a good place to be riding a mountain bike. For Jasper, who spent the week in hospital instead of on the trails with us." Picture by David Martin.
