On display in the retail shops until 12 April
Josh Heino gets the cover of the May issue of Ride. Josh also gets the Pro interview where he talks about losing his three main sponsors now that he has a kid on the way.
The May issue is all about the FOX poster. You see Nate Wessel do a turn bar on one side (I'm sure it's a sick transfer but it doesn't come across in on single hot) but you should rip it out and check the back side. Scotty Cranmer takes flips to a new level. Front flip with a turndown thrown in over a regular jump box in the skatepark. Awesome!
The issue also has an "11 days in the Midwest" article, 5 interviews with riders on the "Pro Life", Jimmy Levan explaining how to do toothpick grinds on rails, some write up on tools, a
John Rodgers (not Faction's JPR) bio, a huge Focus part, Now and Then with Joe Rich (who rode a HARO with a bash guard and 6 pegs), The T1 ramp, Chris Doyle bike check, GT Fueler test, product reviews, letters section, an interview with employee of the month Mike Clarke (Little Devil), a thing on rider websites, A Seth Kimbrough question and answer page, music/video/game reviews, a spot check on the Home Ave ditch in San Diego where some crooks broke into our car and stole some stuff so beware. Scott Foster gets the End Point sequence which is good to see because at one point he was facing 6 months of prison for fighting a cop. He must have 360-d his way out of it, just like he did on his downside-whip to disaster on page 130.
Packed issue? Think so. Go to your BMX dealer and buy a copy, the poster is worth it.
