Danny Milner, editor

Danny heads the MBR editorial team both online and in print as well writing content and and appearing in video content on the website and on the MBR Youtube channel. Danny has been at MBR since 2002 and passionate about bikes all his life.

Alan Muldoon, bike test editor

Alan joined MBR in 2001 and has spent the last 18 years testing bikes and products. Extremely well respected in the industry, he has an in-depth knowledge of the market and an exceptional ability to assess a bike’s handling and performance.

Jamie Darlow, front section editor

Jamie is in charge of the front section of the magazine, but also regularly travels on new bike launches, tests bikes and products and stars in video content on our Youtube channel.

Paul Burwell

Another stalwart of the team, PB has been involved with MBR since the late nineties. He has been mountain biking from the very start, and now undertakes many of our big comparative group tests.

Mick Kirkman

‘Crusher’ Kirkman raced DH and 4X during the early ’00s at an elite level, but despite retiring, he still can’t resist going flat out down the gnarliest tracks around. He’s a regular contributor to MBR bike tests and product tests and has built an extensive knowledge and experience of bikes and products over the years.

James Bracey, tech writer

Living in the heart of the Welsh valleys, James has some of the UK’s best terrain on his doorstep. Which makes us wonder why he’s always riding a gravel bike. Hopefully his new Focus Jam longtermer will help cure him of that illness.

Videographers: Andrew Daley, Edward Westrop
