Hurly Burly - The DH World Cup Yearbook

Dec 6, 2016
by James McKnight  
Hurly Burly documents the epic 2016 season of World Cup and Championships racing across its 200 pages.

From frozen Lourdes to tropical Cairns, Fort William’s festival atmosphere to Val di Sole’s season-ending party, we were there documenting each World Cup and the World Championships in stunning imagery and insightful writing.

2016 was a landmark season for downhill racing, one of extreme highs and devastating lows, a year that saw a new school of talented racers on the podium, Rachel Atherton set records as Aaron Gwin surged towards them and Danny Hart on a race-winning charge. It would have been rude not to put it into print.

Hurly Burly celebrates and commemorates the season with photography by Sven Martin, Sebastian Schieck and Duncan Philpott, design by Jones Design Create, edit by James McKnight (*that's me) and contributions from a host of figures from the race scene.

The cover price of £15 includes free UK postage. International delivery is an additional £5.

Its 200 pages include four adverts, so that's over 190 pages of mind-blowing content (if we say so ourselves).

 To everyone on my Christmas list that isn't into WC DH racing, sorry...this will look way better on your coffee table that last season's Restoration Hardware catalog anyway. Thanks Hurley Burly, Christmas shopping went from 0%-90%! If I gave this to my wife, it would be worse than the "its for you, but really for me" conundrum that lingerie brings with it.

 More of this please! Print is just the best, not been the same since Dirt went digital. Beautiful.

 A PB user here (bonkywonky) pointed me at Cranked (cranked.cc) when I was complaining about the horrible MBUK my Dirt subscription had moved to when they went out of print. And this book complements it beautifully. MBUK was mostly about product reviews, and these simply don't hold much value to me in print. Race results are also nice to have available immediately (which is over the internet these days). But what is nice to have in print are in depth articles about people, trips, events and beautiful race pictures. So with my Cranked subscription and this book, I have that covered.

PB is doing amazing for an internet magazine but a computer screen is simply not up to that. As much as I love what they do, it would be great to get some of these nicer articles (like those from Dylan Sherrard) bundled in a book like that. Maybe, someday? Dirt went digital so the opposite should be possible as well.

 A year book?! This thing looks more like a hurley burly bible of bikes to me!
Why not, they rewrite the bible every other year right Wink

 This looks awesome. Every photo epic I would look at @davetrumpore 's photos and wish he would do the same. Add some stats and results to the photo epicness and I'd be very stoked.
