Mountain Biking UK retro vision

Doddy unearths the past...

When our sister publication Mountain Biking UK first started back in 1988, the scene was a little different to now.

MBUK features editor Andrew Dodd has been, as he puts it, "rooting through a pile of my back issues" and has found a few prehistoric mountain biking gems.

Highlights include:

* Nicky Craig gracing the cover in the days before he was known as Nick Craig.

* Trials stars Martyn Ashton and Martin Hawyes before they had acquired cool.

* Brant Richards getting vertical on the front cover.

* Grip shift, which we don't miss at all.

* And some truly outrageous fashion (by today's standards anyway)
