Bar to Bar, Elbow to Elbow
From £30

Available in two standard sizes and as a fine print.

Back in 2003, four-cross racing was big news. It was fresh and new and its elbow-to-elbow dogfights it inspired flashbacks to the early days of BMX racing. More often than not, these races either exploded into carnage or became a procession, but you did get the odd race that was clean and properly competitive.

At that time, there were only a few racers concentrating solely on the discipline and it was still a bit of a free-for-all. Racers like Martin Murray (left) jumped in from BMX and, of course, Steve Peat (right) transferred from downhill. I have no idea who won this race… but come on, does racing get any closer than this?

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.

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

Fees and duties on non-UK deliveries: If you are ordering outside the UK, please be aware you may have to pay tax, duties or other fees on delivery. We use a professional fulfilment company to help ensure smooth postage and prepare any necessary paperwork, but since Brexit on 1 Jan 2021, some EU and even rest of world customers have reported having to pay a (seemingly random) fee on delivery. This has never happened before and should not be happening, but for the time being there doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. Sorry for any confusion or complications during this period of unprecedented change – we hope Britain and the countries it exports to will soon smooth out any issues.
