Mark Hoyer is the Editor-in-Chief of Cycle World magazine and has been testing and writing about motorcycle since 1993, when he was first hired as a copy editor at Cycle News...
A rider since 14, he started on dirt with a Honda XR75. He hit the street at 16 with a 1979 Yamaha RD400 Daytona Special, which he totaled not long after. His motojournalist career began at Cycle News in 1993 as a temporary copy editor, where he was brought on full-time shortly after, and became managing editor about 8 months later. He’s been testing bikes and writing about them ever since, all around the world on dirt and asphalt.
In 1999, he was hired at Cycle World, becoming Editor-in-Chief in 2009.
“Motorcycles are a fundamental element of leading a rich life of big adventure and meeting interesting people. More people should know this, and well-made motorcycle films are a great way of spreading the word and capturing the magic of riding.
I'm honored to be a part of the Motorcycle Film Festival and excited to see it growing. It's the type of event that both celebrates this kind of filmmaking and should encourage more great work there in the coming years.”
