Two Wheels Only Magazine has been acquired by Magicalia Ltd. Haymarket Magazines, publisher of TWO since 2003, has relinquished the title to concentrate on its four-wheel portfolio.
TWO was launched in 2001 by independent publisher TWO Media and was sold to Haymarket Magazines two years later. With Haymarket behind it, TWO has established a strong circulation and has reinforced its reputation as the UK's most trusted and entertaining bike title. Racing heroes Niall Mackenzie and Jamie Whitham star as road testers and writers for TWO bringing unrivalled credibility, insight and humour to its pages and website.
Kevin Costello, Managing Director of Haymarket Magazines, said: "We've had four great years with TWO and it is now a serious player in this competitive market. Magicalia provides the ideal environment for it to thrive in the future."
Magicalia owns a group of specialist interest magazines based in Orpington, Kent from where TWO will now be published. Established in 1999, the company also runs 45 websites including 30 e-commerce sites. It owns community sites covering topics as diverse as mountain biking, golf, surfing, gardening and parenthood, making it one of the most forward-thinking and successful on-line publishers in the UK.
Joint MD of Magicalia, Jeremy Tapp, says, "We've been looking for an entry into motorcycling and have been lucky enough to land one of the strongest and most respected brands in the sector."
The TWO editorial and advertising teams will transfer with the title. TWO's founder and Publishing Director Grant Leonard will head up the new motorcycling division of Magicalia. "It's an exciting prospect for TWO as Magicalia has some impressive investment plans for the title both in print and on-line. With Magicalia's web expertise, our ambitions for TWO are greater than ever."
Magicalia will begin publishing TWO from the May issue, on sale 22nd March. The transfer of offices will be as of 12 February.
