Our good buds over at Dirt Rag just hired a new editor

Below is a bit from their press release. Also congratulations to Eric McKeegan for his transition to Tech editor!

Dirt Rag Magazine—the independent voice of mountain bike riders for more than two decades—is excited to announce Mike Cushionbury has joined the staff as Editor. He brings 20 years of industry experience to the role as the magazine continues to grow.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Dirt Rag family. I’ve always been a friend and fan of the publication since day one so this is a truly great honor to be leading a group of core mountain bike riders who also happen to be the best and most creative people in the business,” he said.

In Southern California, Cushionbury earned his pro mountain bike racing license but found the printed word was his true calling. He began his career at cycling magazines immediately after graduating with a degree in journalism. He is a true industry veteran, having worked for some of the largest cycling magazines in the world and in marketing roles for major brands. Now he resides in Eastern Pennsylvania and vows to never move away from the East Coast, no matter how bad the weather.
