Dirt Love by Ben Winder

Dirt Love
From £30

Available in two standard sizes and as a fine print.

Love Dirt, and Dirt Love. It’s a command, statement, confession and appreciation for one of the main ingredients for mountain biking.

We ride on it, build from it and spray it. It goes in our eyes, mouth, and bearings. It can be slippery, grippy and unpredictable. John Oldale – a big (massive) bundle of joy with the heart of gold. He lives it, breathes it and has it etched into his knuckles.

A permanent reminder to all, LOVE DIRT.

When most people had already left the pits, we stayed around and had a beer with the riders. Then we just saw those two chatting in the sunset.

This was the very first Dirt Magazine cover Sven Martin landed. It was a huge honour for him because Dirt was the gravity bible at the time and also because it was THE legendary Chris Kovarik.
