This is an epic issue. This was the 10th anniversary issue. One highlight is cover, which folds out to reveal ALL the covers of Bicycle Motocross Action to date of publication. Inside there is year-by-year coverage of the sport, an excellent chronology and history. This is probably the best overview of the early years of BMX... all the legendary riders are in here from Stompin' Stu Thompson to Harry Leary to Greg Hill to all the guys and gals who pioneered the sport.
