Issue 172 OUT NOW!

Here it is, the first issue of 2013! These freshly printed issues will no doubt be getting stacked on the shelves of your local store as we speak, so let’s take a quick look at what’s inside before you go out and grab one.

As you can see we have Greg Illingworth on the cover this month. We spent a long time with him last year, working on a pretty big interview, in fact the biggest one we’ve ever done! Being the first issue of the year we also have the 2012 Round Up, which features all your favourite riders who give you their highlights and more… We also get deep and ask the God question to those prominent BMX riders who were kind enough to share their thoughts with us. We’ve even got an interview with Premium and Markit’s tech street wizard Connor Lodes straight out of San Diego. A jam packed issue, and there’s much more…

A Sampling of Thoughts and Ideas

Words and Photos by: Walter Pieringer

Do you believe in God? Everyone has a right to believe in what they want to believe. Walter Pieringer gets into the heads of those prominent BMX riders who were kind enough to share their thoughts on the subject with us.

All The Way
An Interview with Connor Lodes

Words and Photos by: Robin Pearson

Connor Lodes who lives with Dennis Enarson, Christian Rigal and the rest of the Markit Crew came to England recently for the Warehouse Project and unfortunately got hurt on his first day. So we felt it was only fair that we went out to see him and shoot this interview.
