Boorman and Bayliss join the new look MCN

1 of 5

You can read what Charley Boorman, Troy Bayliss and both Hairy Bikers have to say about bikes over the coming weeks in your new-look MCN, out March 11th. Plus:

  • New used bike section
  • New celebrity bikers
  • New expert writers
  • New product reviews
  • Free earplugs with March 11 issue

The celebrities will be part of MCN’s biggest revamp for 10 years, which will also feature new sections devoted to products and used bikes, plus some of the most knowledgeable writers in motorcycling. 

“Readers wanted MCN to have more depth, more considered opinion and more new bike news,” said editor Marc Potter. “Understandably, the celebrities make the headlines, but the revamp goes far deeper than that. We’ve employed three ex-editors to add real weight to our writing team, and our new emphasis on used bikes and products will make the paper more relevant to more people.”
