It's not every day we get to see a new full-length video from the streets of Sweden, but the Peg Vacay crew just dropped 'Spilled Drinks' for your viewing pleasure. Filmed over the last couple of years, Spilled Drinks saw the small but tight knit local scene come together with a united focus - always something we're stoked to see. The end result is something all those guys can be super proud of.
This is a bit out of the scope of what I normally do but “Strays” is mainly about after work weekend sessions cruising the city with beers, bikes, and boards. No agenda but collect the stray clips and share the good times. Featuring a bunch of folks.
Mark Losey has shot many covershots in his life. This time he makes the cover himself, mouthguard and all. Brian Foster had just discovered the freestyle scene and puts his aluminium Schwinn to the test by doing a 300 X-up in Chicago. Third rider on the cover is Trevor Meyer. Has anybody heard of him lately?
The year is 1995 and I just got my first computer and played around with Coreldraw a bunch for this issue. For once FAT had different fonts, different font sizes and more of that stuff that did not work on a typewriter.
The news section was big again. We went straight into the S&M warehouse ramp followed by a Robo interview. Megafestatie report, free Haro sticker, and a report about the Chicago BS comp followed. The Sjappi Jam in Maarssenbroek was always fun. Dirt , Vert and Lake jumping this time.
KHE provided a sticker and then we went on the Jinx-tour. One of the best trips ever.
We had to smuggle Jay Miron across the Spanish border in order to do a show.
Read all about it in issue 31.
We had a session in RL Osborn's backyard. Rode some pools in the USA. Went to the ABA Grands.
Had a free Webco sticker and visited Hoffman Bikes in Oklahoma. It had been ten months since the last issue had come out so we had loads of content. We went to Kampen for the first round of the Dutch BMX championships. We printed a scene report of an Italian park in Lignano. Of course we had a Mission Trails report, a Mutation sticker, Bartman comic, KOD report from the ABA Grands and a free Vans sticker. Soo wrote about the A4 trails and then it was straight into the Brian Foster interview. TL won the ABA race in Reno, read the report on page 78-79. Evel Knievel made it to the FAT-JAM and I wrote a little report for Gearhaeds 'zine on the GT AirShow. Flip through it and enjoy.

Get the inside scoop from a certified BMX legend!

Fields built a milestone-heavy career including several national championships before suffering a traumatic brain injury at the Tokyo Olympics and retiring from professional racing in the aftermath.
In his first official interview since announcing his retirement, Monster Energy’s Fields said on
Scott Malyon was one of the big break out names from UK BMX in the late 90s early 2000s. Whenever he rode an event he was always a name that stood out, huge transfers, higher airs than the whole group and usually the furthest gaps.
