Mondial Issue Four — Design & Art Direction
Mondial expands the idea of what road cycling is and what the sport can be. Featuring incisive longform writing and stunning photography, in Mondial you will find familiar cycling topics given a fresh new treatment, while a cycling viewpoint is brought to wider cultural subjects, thus broadening the sport’s reference points. Issue 004 brings readers face to face with the showmasters of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, the sporting pariah turned multibillion-dollar global phenomenon. Elsewhere, Susannah Osborne considers the rise of so-called ‘femvertising’ and wonders why some cycling brands insist on patronising women. Mondial also meets Andrew Cotton, the big-wave surfer afraid of cycling downhill.
