IN THIS ISSUE
Just some of the knowledgeable pros you’ll find in MF this month
CHRISTOPHER MCDOUGALL THE RUNNING MAN
McDougall brought the secrets of the remote Tarahumara tribe of Mexico – many of whom run huge distances without injury or fatigue – to the masses with his best-selling book Born To Run. Now, inspired by Second World War resistance fighters, he’s investigating other ways to get fitter and stronger, as he tells MF on p28.
ANTHONY JOHNSON HEAVYHITTER
Do you follow the World Series of Fighting? How about the Titan Fighting Championships? After failing to make his weight one too many times in the UFC, Johnson ended up fighting in these much less glamorous promotions. Now he’s got a shot at Jon Jones’s UFC light heavyweight title. Read about his journey back to the top on p56.
LIAM PHILLIPS BMX SUPERSTAR
While the likes of Hoy, Wiggins and Cavendish have become household names, Phillips has sneaked under the radar to become arguably Britain’s most successful active cyclist. The 2013 BMX world champion and 2014 UCI Supercross series winner puts his meteoric rise down to the total dedication he shows in the gym, as he explains on p115.
