Issue 172 is almost out. Monday is the official on sale day but they will no doubt be in stores as we speak. But like always we like to give you a little look at the cover before it drops. After moving to the UK, Greg Illingworth has had a strong reading on the BMX radar, he’s done a lot and we’ve been working on a interview with him for a while, since Mongoose went to South Africa which was well over a year ago. All in all, you don’t want to miss this interview, or a few of the other special features within this issue! There are a few surprises, but you’ll have to check it for yourself when it hits the shelves. Greg also scores himself this well deserved cover, blasting a table out of a strange footy playground accessory in Tokyo, Japan, that being the first cover of the new year… Check back soon for the full issue preview!
