Effraim Catlow: I know personally that a lot of riders around my area really love BMX Rider, because they can relate to what the content is about, rather than there being hidden agendas which sometimes dampen the coverage and affects who is featured in the magazine and who isn't, BMX Rider tends to report what is going on, and also covers flatland really well issue by issue which is always good in my book.

buissonrouge, www.agoride.com: Toujours Xavier Robleda aux commandes artistiques de ce magazine anglais mais pas de photo de Christophe Dassié ce mois-ci.
Tant pis ce numéro est intéressant quand même. Il s'agit de “ The random issue ”, concept étrange où les news se retrouvent au milieu du magazine et l'édito à la fin. J'aime bien. Le vieux Rob Ridge est en couverture; avec plusieurs de ses camarades ( Ben Foakes, Dennis Wingham, Dave Freimuth, James Hitchcox, Tobias Wicke et Dave White) il essaye de nous nous convaincre de l'intérêt d'utiliser un frein avant. Il y a aussi une interview de Chris Myers, un cascadeur de San Diego puis un bon reportage sur les Vibrations Urbaines de Pessac. Craig Reynolds nous livre ensuite son journal intime à l'époque où il avait un peu plus de 15 ans et on termine par “ the muse ” qui regroupe quelques très belles photos de Tom Simpson et Travis Gardner. Un bon magazine anglais. Un de plus. A acheter la prochaine fois que vous irez faire du shopping à Londres.
