First Words: While shooting his interview in this issue, Dakota Roche found himself riding his bike on a number of roofs, and we share a quick story about how he fell off one of them.
Start: Many BMX beginnings start with a bunnyhop. And Mike Hoder has a knack for taking that staple of all basics to new heights.
Up Front: Sponsor Block, Injured List, and Fine Print… along with all the latest info on the happenings in BMX, we also pay our respects to the late Kyle Bennett, RIP.
Pro Q&A: Drew Bezanson: In case you haven’t figured it out by now, Drew Bezanson is the man. Dope as shit on the bike and cool as shit off, you really can’t go wrong this guy, and these answers reflect that.
Products: Without dialed products, your bike would fall apart. Keep that in mind as you check out these latest offerings.
Soft Goods: Judging someone on how they dress isn’t very nice, but if someone is wearing any of the gear featured here, then it’s safe to assume they know what’s up.
Diversions: From legends, to the streets of the Big Apple, to the Midwest, and to the roads less traveled somewhere in between, we have videos that run the gamut in this issue with Fit’s BF-it documentry, AM:PM’s Check, Please, Kyle Stark’s Team Dilly Is The Man, and FBM’s Vagabond Ritual.
Glimpse: The BFF Grands. A pack of riders sprint around lower Manhattan—that’s New York City—lots of people, taxis, buses, chaos—and dudes racing through all of it. Awesome.
Focus: In today’s digital age where most photos are Insta this or Alien that, we decided to kick it old school and bring you an entire Focus section featuring photos that were shot on black and film and printed in a traditional darkroom. In case you didn’t know it by now, we take photography very, very seriously.
Bio: Tyler Gilliard. This flatlander from Lakeland, Florida, has “a fearless approach to riding” and he’s progressing insanely fast, so when he’s killing it for years to come, remember reading about him here first in his Bio.
Letters: Ryan Fudger giving his advice and opinions for free is, well… priceless.
Finish: Kevin Peraza. With some of the tricks this young gun is motivated to learn—like up rail-to-decades and 540 double downside whip airs—it’s safe to say his name is going to become a lot more familiar.

- Features -
Dakota Roche Interview. How can you go wrong with 11 pages dedicated to one of the most bad-ass riders on the planet? We even have stuff so fresh it didn’t make it into Cult’s Talk Is Cheap.
Off The Clock: All work and no play? Not at Animal, when the workday is done, the fun begins…
Andrew Jackson Interview: When you think of Andrew, first thing that probably pops into your head are his ridiculously high bunnyhops. After reading his interview, you can add racing motocross, flipping cars, and riding with the legend Brian Terada to that list…
tony hamlin ride bmx us 2013 issue 189 - march april 2013

First Words: Keepin’ it loose, freestylin’, adventure seeking, and having fun, while recapping the issue, Keith Mulligan breaks it all down to what’s really important.
Start: Jean-Francios Boulianne brings his signature French Canadian flatland style down to SoCal for the winter…
Up Front: Sponsor Block, Injured List, and Fine Print… these are fast time we’re living in, and we recap what’s happened in the BMX world as of late.
Pro Q&A: Christian Rigal. Whether it’s filming, combing San Diego for spots, or assassinating the streets, Christian has plenty of insight for our readers and handled your questions the same way he does everything else—like a pro.
Products: Twelve new parts you need to know about—including frames, wheels, bars, stems, pegs, and more…

Focus: Simone Barraco, Jason Enns, Jared Eberwein, Scott Powell, Kert Petersel, Nate Richter, Sean Morr, Mike Mastroni, and Dave Belcher make one Hell of Focus section!
Bio: Steve Kulischenko. Growing up in New Jersey and doing rollercoaster uprails are at least two reasons why you need to know how to pronounce Steve’s last name… “Kool-a-shank-o”—get it? Got it? Good.
Letters: Keep asking good questions so Ryan Fudger will continue to have an outlet for his witty and sarcastic sense of humor.
Finish: Pat Laughlin. The only guy in BMX who drives a yellow Ferrari also does backward Derek dusters and one-handed icepick grinds down rails. Pat Laughlin is a character for sure and his answers reflect that.

- Features -
Tony Hamlin Interview: We were fortunate enough to tag along with Tony while he’s been hard at work filming for Kink’s new DVD Squash It. We ended up with a lot of laughs, a grip of sick photos, and an interview too.
Hillage To Pillage: Sandy Carson and Kyle Emery-Peck pedal their BMX bikes over 80 miles of twisty and hilly backroads from San Francisco to Bolinas and lived to tell about it.
BMX Files: Vasya Lukyanenko gets the once in a lifetime opportunity to session a space radar station inUkraine. Yeah, it’s as crazy as it sounds.
Riding Out The Storm: Hurricane Sandy pummeled the Northeast and left an unprecedented amount of destruction in its wake. Riders being riders, they quickly found a way to session some of the newly formed remains from the wreckage. Making the most of an otherwise shitty situation.
Just For Fun Trip: Drew Bezanson, Mike “Hucker” Clark, Ronnie Napolitan, and Zak Early take advantage of the many fine offerings Oregon is know for, including surfing, camping, and concrete parks, of course.
