It’s been a long while, but XXC Magazine is back. While things didn’t go exactly as planned for the issue (see page 4, Not As Planned by Jason Mahokey), the mag is once again jammed with stories and photos from the world of mountain bike racing and dirt culture.

Lastly Jason Mahokey takes a look at the popular race “series” known as the Triple Crown: The Ore To Shore, Chequamegon 40 and the Iceman Cometh.
