From Monday November 26, there will be a new name and face at the helm of Bikemagic. James McKnight will be taking over the reins from acting editor John Stevenson.
Despite his youth, James has many years’ experience in mountain bike journalism. He has contributed to magazines, written books and most recently edited The Dirt 100. As well as having well-honed journalism skills, he has also spent some seasons in the world’s best resorts as a mountain bike guide.
James will be based in the Monmouth office of Bikemagic’s parent company Factory Media, where Dirt magazine is also based. He will work alongside the Dirt team to help build an office with an unrivalled set of mountain bike knowledge and skills.
This office also has the benefit of being right next to the Forest of Dean, making it much easier to get out and test mountain bikes and gear than from the Factory HQ in London.
Look out for James’ byline on Bikemagic from next week and join us in welcoming him aboard!
