Issue 173 Out Now!

The new issue is out now and will be hitting the shelves of your local store and favourite BMX Shop as we speak! Before you head out and grab your copy here’s a little preview of what’s inside the new issue.

Well straight off the bat, I think we can say Jason Phelan is a madman, his bomb drop on the cover is absolutely nuts, but that’s not all from him as in the mag we feature both Pete Sawyer and Jay over on their winter holiday in Malaga, which seems to be the popular place to be at this time of year… Also we talk to each of the winners of the Ride UK Reader Awards and follow Brian Yeagle, KC Badger and Joseph Frans on their little trip in Japan, riding all kinds of crazy, random transitions… Also in this issue we sit down and talk with Tony Watkinson and head out to one of the most remote places a BMX contest has ever been held! Let’s take a look in more detail…

In this issue:

Ronnie Napolitan gives us a Bunch of Fives.
Kriss Kyle tells us what he Loves and Hates.

You might remember a little while back seeing a Red Bull video pop up on the internet of what looked like riders riding on the moon. That was the Red Bull Ramparanoia event in Argentina, and if you’ve seen the video it’s time to read the full story from the event organisers and riders themselves.
