Terry Adams is a busy cat. Traveling to contests gets him around and he isn't shy of a camera either. He is the only flatlander to get two covers on American magazines in 2006. When it comes to filming, Terry knows how to get in the picture as well. After doing clips for Fuel, Disney and an ABC show, Terry did a strange solo project where he was loving his bike. Add to this the Incubus music video starring Adams where he is setting priorities straight by ditching the girl over a photoshoot.

2020 is keeping me updated on what's happening in Australia at the moment and around this time of the year (their summer), that's a whole lot. Sitting behind the computer getting a magazine together while the rest of your friends are out riding is rough. Add to that a couple of weeks of hospital and head surgery and you understand that life wasn't pretty for editor Matt Holmes. But BMX is strong and is motivating. Matt's drive to finish the mag was bigger than anything else resulting in a fine issue of 2020. Inside you find Heavy Metal Heroes, a Nitai photo profile, Shreddin' lives article, Who the fuck is Alex LiIv, Bio's with Ron Rampton, Jed Mildon, Abelardo Vargas, Malcom Hanslow and Garreth Hedfield. Video and music reviews, how-to's, 2 pages of product reviews, 'zine lookback, photo section, news pages, spot checks and most Australian jam and contest reports.

Last summer we did a road trip and made a video out of it. We had a good crew together with Rolf, Colin, Vladdie, Michael and Arnaut and filled up two cars and hit Germany for 7 days. The first two days we went to the Duesseldorf University. That place is amazing, Uni Puni for sure. The next 4 days we spent in Cologne. Slept under a bridge and then managed to work something out with the Jugendpark so we could sleep where the BMX Masters Dirt jumps were. That contest finished a week before we showed up. We rode a bunch of street in Cologne. Thanks to the locals for showing us around.
