Finally, the issue you’ve waited a whole year for is here.
This years Monster Energy – Ride to Glory featured the talents of Verde, Nike 6.0, Dub, Lotek and last years winners BSD. The whole trip started out in a rain soaked Leeds, then made its way around all 4 corners of the country and came to an end at a now infamous swimming pool location in London. After talking with the teams and getting the lowdown on went went on, the only word best to describe the week long road trip was… immense.
As per usual this issue comes packed full of RTG content with the added bonus of the RTG DVD cover mounted, filmed by some of the best videographers the BMX world has to offer. As well as the 50+ pages of Ride To Glory goings on, Issue154 is also packed with the usual regular; news, facts, products, Top 5’s – Simon Barraco, Room 101 – Mike Jersey Taylor and a Bike Check – Lima’s Verde Cartel Series 2.
Here’s a sneak peak:
“Ride To Glory 2011 once again proved that traveling around the country in a sweaty van, with a good group of friends, visiting random spots and meeting new people is an integral part of what BMX is about…so take a look at who took part, who did what, who didn’t do anything…and who won.”

This years winners Verde, putting the work in at their unfortunate location challenge Redcar. Who says the industry is dead in the North.
Last years winners BSD had an exceptionally crazy week, so much so that they almost regained the RTG title. Lets just say we had numerous re-counts.
Third place ended up in the hands of Nike 6.0. Some big hitters on this team set them out as odds on favourites for the win before the week started.
DUB were in good form, but as per usual chose to take on a very relaxed attitude to the whole contest. It’s a lifestyle for these boys you know, but even when chilling these guys threw down some serious bangers. Check the edit.
Last and certainly not least was Lotek. These guys had a rough start to the week with serious van trouble putting a dampener on proceedings. Then they went and mysteriously “lost” their challenge book!
