We talked about it today. A magazine sized box arrived at Paul's Boutique but it had no magazines in it. It's strange to say, but I don't really miss BMX magazines. The fact that the content is several weeks old makes it dated in this fast paced world. Keeping a riding trip a secret until the magazine goes to print is tough these days with all the Insta live stories, Facebook live posts and other social media platforms around that makes instant coverage available for everyone. And then today Dig announced the launch of a new 148 page high quality BMX photo journal which made me curious and wanting to see it. For all magazine junkies, you can order issue 99.8 online in the DIGbmxstore for €10,88. Here's what you can expect:
As a member of USABMX you do receive Pull BMX Magazine in the mailbox whenever it comes out. The latest issue has all the USABMX Grand National coverage you can dream of, from a report to the 2016 standings, from the latest gossip to event results. With a race of 765 motos you can sure fill an entire magazine with the happenings.
Pro riders Alise Post, Joris Daudet and Cristian Becerine had a killer year and are higlighted in the magazine. They share the cover too. With the season opener happening this weekend in Phoenix, Arizona, the material for the next issue will be collected right there. BMX racing in print, let's keep it coming.
In a world where print is disappearing and magazines turn into online operations, BMX RIDER is hangin' tough. Although there are a few BMX magazines that come out on an irregular basis, the German magazine has just hit #28. Tim Korbmacher was just at the Simple Session in Tallinn so you can expect a full on report of the contest in print when the next issue comes out in a few months from now. But first things first. Here is a short list of stories that went into the winter issue where not a lot of outdoor riding got done around Germany.
