Issue 201 Out Now

We’ve flipped the script again for Issue 201. After our comeback issue and The Crew Issue, here we have The Interview Issue. Seven carefully chosen UK riders share their stories, from shocking struggles to streams of random consciousness, via glory days and world travel. These seven characters represent so many different sides of BMX, it’s difficult to sum them up in a blurb like this – our advice is to get comfy and dive in for issue 201, get to know them, learn something from their take on the world.

Featuring interviews with:

  • Jack Dumper
  • Akin Hercules Walker
  • Tom Milham
  • Louis Otto
  • Stu Chisholm
  • Emma Finnegan
  • Zach Shaw

Also featuring:

  • Joe Embrey, Tom Russell, Denis Smith, Oscar Howitt, Archie Kenward, Craig Stevens, Pete Marselle, Joe Tricker, Luke Thorpe & more

‘At one with the bike’

A Bristol local with a unique way of riding, I think everybody knows about Jack Dumper. Jack’s story is inspiring to say the least. We go through everything, from how he started riding with a hoodie tied to his bars, to his potential prosthetic arm and how the whole concept of riding BMX might be changing for him in the future.

‘Decades of perspective’

As far as people who have seen and done stuff in UK BMX, nobody comes close to Zach Shaw. A true legend of our time, someone who has been there since the early days of BMX and has helped steer it in more ways than you might know.

‘Nomad guy?’

As Louis Otto has been big on our radar for some time, it was only right that he appear in our interview issue. Especially since his lifestyle over the last year or so requires some unpacking. That, and his riding tends to make for great photos. Shot in Barcelona, home for Louis for a while, though he’d never call himself a local…

‘What is life?’

From a vibrating soul to almost permanently injured hands, Akin took the mic and ran with it. Existential crises aside, we discuss working on projects with Nigel Sylvester, chasing women, cryptocurrency, piano, and his current obsession with gym training. We are just guests in his stream of consciousness and it makes for very interesting reading.

‘The streets are always there for you’

Emma Finno is at the forefront of women’s street riding and we’re proud to have her pushing it from the streets of Liverpool to the global stage. We learn all about Emma’s history with British Cycling, how she’s pushing herself in work and talk about her dream trick…

‘Born & bred’

Hastings through and through. Stu talks us through being a young dad, working in BMX, keeping the balance right, and everything he’s had going on recently. Top guy.

‘BMX saves’

You never know what people are going through. Our longest interview, this one gets deep. From the highs of party days with the FTL boys, to the toughest lows a man can face, Tom Milham bravely shares it all. With BMX as one of the only constants in his life, we put it all in context and see how he’s coped with severe challenges.
