I opted for the latter and soon took refuge in a homely real ale pub, disturbed only by one minor brawl outside that spilled out from the karaoke bar opposite. At 8pm. Special. The vert series is following last year's format of vert squirts (under 13s), Amateur, and old men, sorry, Pro class.

It's easy to say that you don't need a magazine for newcomers to BMX if you've been involved for many years, but everyone started at some point. For those the BMX BASICS magazine by Freedom BMX is a perfect start. Learn how to do tricks which are explained by Felix Prangenberg (street) and Adrian Warnken (ramps), so you know you're in good hands there with all the tips. BMX Basics teaches you how to put a bike together, something that sounds easy, but if you need to shorten a chain for the first time you need some good tips (and tools) to get the job done. BMX BASICS also shows you where you can ride, how to treat sponsorships, what's involved with BMX contests and lots more. The BMX cake needs to grow. Those complete bikes need to be sold. BMX Basics will help grow the sport of BMX because it has the info that newcomers need to know. Did we mention you can pick one copy up at the local BMX shop for free? What are you waiting for?
