THE 2020 Mountain bike yearbook




Meltdown is the 2020 mountain bike yearbook by Misspent Summers.

With fewer downhill World Cup and Enduro World Series races than usual in 2020, we decided to roll our downhill and enduro yearbooks (Hurly Burly and The World Stage) into one while adding a load more stuff from across the mountain bike world.

Meltdown includes photography and writing from the 2020 downhill and cross-country World Cup and Championships, Enduro World Series and select other events. Plus, numerous comment pieces from a total cross-section of mountain biking by people involved in just about every aspect of the sport.

It is a record of the year on the international mountain biking scene with extraordinary photography, top-class design and illustrations, thoughtful features and plenty of other fun stuff like the Ultimate MTB Geek Quiz and Analog Book-a-zine.

Meltdown costs just £20 plus shipping.

We thank you in advance for your support and purchasing our latest yearbook — as ever, it’s a product of love for mountain biking by everyone involved.

Stay tuned to Misspent Summers on our website, social media and newsletters for updates as we put together this mother of all mountain bike yearbooks.

A small note that we had planned to launch in January, but had several delays in production. If you pre-ordered expecting the book to be shipped before February and are dissatisfied, please get in touch.
