Once again one of those risky covers. The biker on the cover is one square inch big and partially faded by the sun. I guess this works well in France anyway. Bling bling gold on the cover though. The Edito on the next page, written by Olivier Rosset, is a bit strange. Olivier claims that BMX at the Olympic Games was inevitable. Well Olivier, you do know more than I do as a member of the IBMXFF. Anyway, Olivier might have a big cristal ball in his living room.
The programme has a cool flatland sequence (yup Flatland - France). The Agenda, news and chroniques follow before we get to the Matos part which has all kind of hardware products listed. Softgoods you can find on page 14 and you know that Paris is the fashion capital of the world so you better check out that page. The RID2Z contest (a girls contest) gets a report and so does L'Asso de Cambrai. Beou

La Gazette, le journal du BMX Rider. Then it's time for Geneva where all the spots get checked. Next up a report from Palavas de Montpellier followed by Public Enemy in da house.

GoGo starts writing about Team Sano in France on a Bachelor trip. Watch out. 15 good reasons to go to Japan. Still haven't been there. Who said halfpipes were not there? Cream has a story on a concrete one in a field with no platform. Richard Baybutt gets space in the mag to display his favourite pics. Damn good ones too. While Alain Massabova was in LA with Manu Sanz and Christian van Hanja, they had to hook up with the flatlanders that make things work in Cali: Ed Nussbaum, Bobby Carter and Shawn White. La Face Cachee. Whatever that means but it has 4 persons and nice pics in it. Sylvain Fabre loves fire. He got a 7 page interview (in French). Urban Games report: check.
