Mesum Verma (Editor-in-Chief) came up with the idea to produce and publish India’s first ever Mountain Bike Magazine, Freerider. After spending four months traveling around India, he soon uncovered the huge potential to develop and promote Mountain Biking through India and Nepal. During his stay, he spoke with several people from associated industries about the potential for events, races and race track development but soon revealed that this sport is too young and the general population not yet aware about the unlimited prospects for mountain biking in the region.
Thus the idea was born to produce a Magazine focused on the promotion and development of the sport and upon meeting Vineet Sharma (Deputy Editor) this dream is now becoming a reality. Vineet is a talented and enthusiastic biker who has worked hard to evolve mountain biking in India. Vineet organized the first dirt jump and BMX event in Chandigarh (India) and also works in association with the annual stage MTB race in Himachal Pradesh and other parts of India and is also a talented trail designer and builder. Together,they both aim to make mountain biking more accessible to the general population by publishing Freerider MTB Magazine.
With both partners being involved in the extreme sports industry from a very young age, there is a great amount of knowledge and passion ready to be unleashed. Both posses the skill and experience for publishing Freerider MTB Magazine and achieving the dream of exposing the unlimited potential of mountain biking as a sport, recreation and tourist enterprise through both India and Nepal.
