BMX Plus december 2005
Ever noticed how the color of the font corresponds with the color of the cover pic in Plus!? This time it's the red of Ricardo Laguna's shirt that takes care of part of the content of the Dec. issue. From the cover you can tell that there is an X-Games report and who won the gold. 3 bikes get tested: Felt FUSE, Macneil WHITTON and the Diamond Back SHERMAN. There's an article called On the Move: Improve your flatland skills. For those who are stuck deciding what to give their best friends/loved ones for Christmas, the Holiday Gift Guide might actually help. The racing coverage in this issue of Plus! consists of the UCI World Championships in Paris and an NBL Race report. Colin Winkelmann RIP. Find the memorial jam report on page 10 and 12. The Nostalgia pic takes you back to a BMX race at Woodward Camp in 1988. That's Billy Griggs in the picture riding for Redline and sporting that popular numberplate that was screwed to the handlebars. Scott o'Brian talks about Flatland Worldwide. Tom Haugen's Free Agent bike gets inspected as well as Mike Parenti's Custom Giant. A flatland how-to follows. Really. Moving pics: nice still photos and a few sequences. A tech tip and the Parting Shot wrap up the December issue.
