Alistair Whitton sent in this photo. He didn't even have to put his bike in the sun and bring out the chalk to make a silhouette of his bike. You see, at Woodward it does rain too and after a quick downpour these dry spots appeared when the bikes were removed. Having a camera handy at that point doesn't happen a lot but Alistair got the job done and makes it to the "Comic 'n Art" page here on FATBMX.

It costs € 3,95 and if you want to try out an issue, it might as well be the SEX issue that you're spending your money on. The cover shows a photos of the 2 BMX-ers vs. 2 Porn Stars article.

It's got a full page of Kevin Robinson in his favorite position (high above the mega ramp) and a photos from the Red Bull Elevation comp of Doyle spinning a no-handed 360. The VANS Barak comp gets a full
Dude! Looks like they're building loads of stuff for BMX-ers over in England at the moment. This is a nice movie on a newly built BMX track in Norwich that was supported by the Barclays Spaces for Sports project. The movie interviews the local council, the riders,
A new vert ramp is being built right now in England. Or better, an INDOOR vert ramp is being built in Corby, England.
