Issue 324 of Mountain Biking UK is out in the shops now! Grab a copy and you'll find out it's full to the brim with cool features, bike tests, and kit reviews – and there's also the chance to win a limited-edition GT Zaskar frame!

This month, our Evolution of a Classic feature series looks at the Zaskar, an iconic ride, still going strong as it enters its 25th year. To celebrate, we are giving you the chance to win a 25th anniversary Zaskar frame! You can enter the competition here, and read our first look of the bike here.

Features this month include chasing the summer to the Kiwi adventure capital, Queenstown, a blast from the past with legends of British downhill at a retro race in Wales, and Matt Jones getting wild in Scotland on an unplanned road trip! We also check out six sweet new bikes for 2016 – it looks like next year is going to be a pretty exciting one for mountain bikers…

In the office this month we have been talking about Peaty's announced retirement at the end of 2016. We've also been in awe of Peaty and Hans Rey's exploits in Iceland – check it out, it looks like an epic adventure!

Hans has been a longstanding representative of GT, and is really excited about the release of the new Zaskar. We check out what he had to say about the new bike in our Evolution of a Classic feature.
