HURLY BURLY

Never a dull moment

Hurly Burly commemorates a milestone season of incredible highs and devastating lows in which Danny Hart, Loic Bruni and a ruck of new school talent took to the top of the podium, Rachel Atherton broke records as Aaron Gwin surged toward them, and Steve Peat stepped down as downhill’s longest-serving athlete.

The book follows the circuit from a frozen Lourdes to tropical Cairns, sunny Scotland to the variable Alps. It remembers and celebrates a season of downhill racing that will go down in history as one of the most eventful ever.

From the festival atmosphere of Fort William to the wild crowds of Val di Sole, we were there documenting the season's biggest moments in stunning imagery and insightful reporting across Hurly Burly's 200 pages.

Hurly Burly sets the 2016 season in stone.
