Ben Mondy is a partner in ACM Writing Group with over 10 years of action sports journalism and editing experience. He was a deputy editor for Australia’s biggest surfing magazine, Tracks, for over five years and since moving to Europe in 2005 has contributed to a wide range of mainstream and niche titles covering his love of various outdoor sports. Since his involvement in Mountain Biking Europe his time on the bike has increased dramatically, as, unfortunately, has his time rolling around the dirt in considerable pain. Not to be deterred, he vows to visit every location in the book, or at least die trying. Given his riding style, we’d bet on the latter.
