I’m very proud to have won the Best Singletrack Magazine Feature for 2009 as voted by the readers of the magazine. I wrote the story of me and my son Nial and how we have made riding mountain bikes one of the most important parts of our father and son time. Thanks if you were one of the people who voted. If you haven’t read the article it is in issue 50 of Singletrack Mountain Bike Magazine available in print or to download from the online shop.


Best Singletrack Magazine Feature


Winner: ‘Man & Boy’ by Ed Oxley

“This was the closest category with only a handful of votes separating the candidates. Ed’s feature must be one of the most genuinely moving pieces of writing in a mountain bike magazine for quite some time. The best man won.”

Here is the boy himself in action yesterday on the frozen downhill tracks at Storthes Hall near Huddersfield
