Cushionbury is new Dirt Rag editor

Published November 2, 2012

PITTSBURGH, PA (BRAIN) — Dirt Rag Magazine has hired longtime industry journalist Mike Cushionbury as editor. 

Cushionbury has worked at Mountain Bike Action, Bike and at Rodale's Bicycling and Mountain Bike magazines. Most recently he was global marketing director at Cannondale. He lives in Eastern Pennsylvania.

“I’m thrilled to be joining the Dirt Rag family," Cushionbury said. "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.” 

“The growth Dirt Rag has experienced in the past few years is phenomenal, yet not surprising because it is one of the very few magazines in the world that truly captures the heart and soul of mountain bike riding,” Cushionbury said. “I’m very excited to carry on that tradition not only by satisfying our current readers, but also increasing our readership as we move forward.”

New tech editor

In addition to Cushionbury joining the staff, Eric McKeegan has moved into the position of tech editor, overseeing product testing and tech coverage.
