Amongst our early 90s after school riding crew MBA magazine was really influential , actual copies of the magazine were rare most often brought back by parents travelling overseas ... we were so inspired we named a downhill ‘The MBA’ as we all decided that it was like the terrain and riding style we saw in MBA magazine...

Yes, loved MBA back in the day, the logo is very much a homage.

@tangent you were / are in the SW from memory? WH Smith’s on Cheltenham High Street used to stock it, maybe that was as far south as it made it 😀

yup that’s right ... just spotted that our locations are no longer displayed on this amazing new site (nice work)... the ‘MBA’ dh, I was writing about can be found on somewhere on the (Mint Sauce) Mendip Brothers’ Hills ... we even had / have! a ‘JohnTomac’ corner...

Yes loved those MBA’s probably should of got a G.C.S.E on their content !
