Time flies. It's nice to be home for a change on a Friday. If there's one thing we should not forget to post, it's Friday's Pin Up shot. And we've got a good one today.

Magazines used to come in on a weekly basis but the stack isn't growing at a similar rate today. With Dig, Ride UK, Freedom, Art, 2020, The Albion, Zwanzig Zoll, and RebelYell not coming out in print any longer, we're happy every time the mailman drops some BMX pages through the door.

The tech Tips, new products, the news section, parting shot, Nostalgia page, Mailbag, Inside Scoop and other regulars make sure you don't miss much on what's going on in BMX. The fact that BMX Plus! gives 'unknown' riders an opportunity to shine makes it interesting month after month. Ben Crockett was in France last weekend to cover the FISE World
