BMX Plus! march 2008: The cover was one to remember with a photo of a three-speed race bike with a profile three-cog cassette hub that was tested on the track. Date Holmes had the table of contents photo with a shot from the infamous Sheep Hills trails in So Cal. We took a look inside the PRO'S bikes of Rick Thorne and Trevor Meyer. The '97 King of Dirt contest was exciting with tricks like no footed can cans, bar spins to x-ups and suicide no handers. It is definitely crazy to see how far BMX has come in ten short years. There was a street riding guide with important tips before you go out and tear up the asphalt and a BMX/Freestyle history quiz that will take some of you older riders back down history lane. John Purse takes home the ABA Grand National win and the parting shot was from the BMX museum at the ABA Grands. There are pictures of six different bikes each wildly different in their own way.

|volume 21 no.6 - june 1998 (1)|

We checked in with Pro dirt jumper TJ Lavin and saw how he kept busy on his trampoline bike in Vegas. A flatland buyer's guide showed you the newest and hottest flat products out at the time. We show off the new Hoffman Evel Knievel signature bike. On top of that we teach you everything you need to know about BMX racing. Finally, Greg Dickinson out of Vegas had his own Parting shot page doing some pretty sweet box jump moves.

We had coverage of the ABA winter nationals including the famous brawl between Greg Romero and Neil Wood in Glendale, Arizona, and also checked out the specialized Cactus Cup jump contest. The flatland-specific GT Show was put to the test and we showed you some sweet riding spots across the country.

BMX Plus! october 2008: Powerlite's ultimate race machine graced the cover and was a pretty big deal at the time. It is not very often that we put a bike by itself on the cover, so you know it had to be good. The X -Games had a turnout of about 233,000 fans and went down in San Diego. We had a huge photo special to give you an inside look at what you couldn't see on TV As far as testing goes, Huffy had a freestyle ride new for 1999. One main focus of this issue was the interviews featuring two BMX legends. Tim 'Fuzzy" Hall and Dennis McCoy spoke up. We show you how to give your bike a makeover from the ground up and covered a dirt jumping contest when dirt jumping was getting huge. This issue closed with a doubles vert run and Mirra tailtappin DMC's back.
