Kevin McAvoy and Justin Kosman keep firing out these Twenty BMX mag babies in a timely fashion. They'll be at number 20 in no-time. Mike Saavedra gets the cover. I thought it was Corey Bohan at first. Twenty has a lot of racing in it. Hopefully the BMX racing community appreciates that and buys the mag. The Pump section brings news and small articles like the one on Scot Breithaupt and Greg Romero. It moves on to the SubDivision 2005 report and continues with a Snafu road trip in the OKC area. Mongoose race Joey Bratford gets interviewed and the August issue comes with a Mongoose/Hyundai team poster. Twenty BMX covers the CFB in Oklahoma and that's quite quick as the comp happened only last month. Riding the Curve is a racing article with Matt Pohlkamp, Kris Fox and Ryan Roberts. It follows the riders during a race. Don't forget to put your filter on your camera. The Filter photo section brings you big pics (on the big size paper mag).
The Story from the Biker In Black himself:
"Yo dudes I got messed up about 9 dayz ago on tha Huck jam, I fell on tha vert & my handlebar stabbed me in tha leg, result was internal stiches of 19 or so plus 19 staples on tha outside. Life sucks cause I had 2 miss tha Gravity Games & tha Denver stop, 2nd of tha Dew action Sports Series. I should b ridin' next week, I have been still filmin' 4 FUEL TV on tha Huck Jam & hostin', hold ur head up."
The best 2 Euros you ever spent on a BMX magazine!
Issue 11 has one picture that stands out. It makes you laugh, again and again. You look back at it and you will start shaking your head. It's better therapy than seeing a shrink. If you are feeling down, turn to page 58/59 and your day brightens up again. The picture almost made the cover of Zwanzig 11 and it actually should have because more people would have randomly seen it and made them smile. I hope you are getting curious what this photo is all about. Order your copy today. Ask for issue 11 and make sure page 58/59 have not been ripped out of the magazine yet.

Florian SchÃ¼le is going to organize a Flatland contest in Baiersbronn (Freudenstadt) on the 16 & 17 of July. Read on what Flo has to say:
These are the second "Black Forest Masters" that I am organizing. The first time in October 2001 the riders came from Berlin, Stuttgart, Munich, Bitterfeld, Wien and so on to join the contest.
The contest is going to take place in a skating hall and will last for two days. On Saturday we are going to organize a party on a barbecue-site after the contest. Everybody who wants, can camp next to the barbecue-site.
The contest will start at 10 AM on Saturday. The riders can choose between three different classes and they will have time to practice. At 3 PM the qualifying for the finals will be started. On Sunday the finals will be held.
'Tinker came over to the UK for a 24hr mountain bike race and the UK magazine, What Mountain Bike, caught up with him for an upcoming profile for their August 2005 issue. They talked 20in as well as 26in and here's what they didn't have space for...' Tinker Juarez is a name that echoes all the way from ‘Back in the Day’; he was a ripper both on the race track, where he became the youngest pro of the time aged just 15 in 1975, and away from the dirt and on the concrete of the skatepark. He was crowned the first ever King of the Skatepark by Bicycle Motocross Action magazine back in 1980 and helped inspire a generation of freestyle riders along the way. He was eventually inducted into the ABA BMX Hall of Fame in 1993, seven years after he quit BMX for cross-country (XC) mountain bike racing. He took his trademark hard as nails dedication to training from BMX and applied the same ethic to mountain biking, becoming one of the world’s best and a mountain bike legend, winning silver at the World Champs in 1994, and a two-time Olympian at both the Atlanta and Sydney Games. In 2001 he was inducted into the mountain bike hall of fame and quit XC and got all masochistic by taking in 24 hour solo mountain bike racing.
Everyone over at FATBMX would like to congratulate Nico and Lisenka Does on the birth of their son Lucas Does. Lucas saw daylight for the first time on 29 June and weighed in at 3180 grams. Not only mom and dad are proud but also grandparents Gerrit and Mieke Does-Karsmakers.
Let the sleepless nights begin!

DIG Magazine # 047.
It's Kye Forte's 3rd cover in one month, how stoked is he? Leave it to the DIG boys to come up with something different on the first page. A manual on the cover, who would have ever thought? The mag is full of stuff. We leave the contents to Ed Docherty's # 047 info image but we can tell it's a stacked issue. In fact, we still haven't finished reading everything yet. We'll stop typing here and start reading. Get your copy through:
