We have a new feature, called “Your Number’s Up.” We gave Giant rider Tom Haugen some difficult questions to fill in about his life both in and out of riding and learned some interesting things about Tom’s life. For instance, Tom rides flatland everyday and someone owes him a lot of money. For more of Tom’s numbers, check out his feature in issue 27.
We also did two rather large interviews with two more people that have nothing to do with each other; Denmark’s Niels Thanild and New Jersey’s Ralph Sinisi. Niels has basically been a huge factor in making BMX happen in the Scandinavian countries; and Ralph, though he has been a huge influence on modern street riding, has never really gotten the recognition he deserves, so we felt it appropriate to do it here. And if that’s not enough, Ryan Corrigan gets made fun of a bunch in his edition of ‘Fragments.’
What else, what else? Sandy Carson did an overnight fullpipe trip. Ian Morris gets Backchatted. A bunch of people from all over Europe and the US get low-profiled. Some people go to some contests and tell us about them. Some news, some new videos, some music, a letter from prison and 5 BMXer’s we feel deserve the title of Loose Cannon. If you’re lost now, get the issue to clear it up. We’re not very good at bragging about how wonderful our contents in each issue are… all we’ll say is that we like it and we hope you do too. – Brian Tunney, www.digbmx.com, March 2003:
