Trail Mix

“Trail Mix” is our selection of the best photos sent to us by riders from all over the world. Every month we love sifting through the photos of riders out on the trail doing what they do best—enjoying this awesome sport. If you’d like to see your photo in the pages of MBA, you can submit them by following the directions at the end. Happy trails!


My name is Jason Earl, and this is a picture of me riding one of our newest trails in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Oz Trails is growing at an insane pace out here, with new trails opening every week. As a SoCal native transplanted here 14 years ago, I couldn’t believe it when I found out about the trails here last year. Now, as a 48-year-old guy who was away from mountain bikes for 14 years, I consider myself extremely fortunate to be rediscovering the sport again on some of the sickest trails I’ve ever seen right in my own backyard.

This is me at the Truckee Bike Park in Truckee, California. The park is awesome. We go a lot in the summer. I worked up to this jump before I got it. It drops into a berm, so it’s tricky. My dad broke his wrist on his bike last weekend, so he was photographing me instead of riding.
