First Words
While shooting his interview in this issue, Dakota Roche found himself riding his bike on a number of roofs, and we share a quick story about how he fell off one of them.

Many BMX beginnings start with a bunnyhop. And Mike Hoder has a knack for taking that staple of all basics to new heights.

Up Front
Sponsor Block, Injured List, and Fine Print… along with all the latest info on the happenings in BMX, we also pay our respects to the late Kyle Bennett, RIP.

Pro Q&A: Drew Bezanson
In case you haven’t figured it out by now, Drew Bezanson is the man. Dope as shit on the bike and cool as shit off, you really can’t go wrong this guy, and these answers reflect that.

Without dialed products, your bike would fall apart. Keep that in mind as you check out these latest offerings.

Soft Goods
Judging someone on how they dress isn’t very nice, but if someone is wearing any of the gear featured here, then it’s safe to assume they know what’s up.

From legends, to the streets of the Big Apple, to the Midwest, and to the roads less traveled somewhere in between, we have videos that run the gamut in this issue with Fit’s BF-it documentry, AM:PM’s Check, Please, Kyle Stark’s Team Dilly Is The Man, and FBM’s Vagabond Ritual.

The BFF Grands. A pack of riders sprint around lower Manhattan—that’s New York City—lots of people, taxis, buses, chaos—and dudes racing through all of it. Awesome.

In today’s digital age where most photos are Insta this or Alien that, we decided to kick it old school and bring you an entire Focus section featuring photos that were shot on black and film and printed in a traditional darkroom. In case you didn’t know it by now, we take photography very, very seriously.

Bio: Tyler Gilliard
This flatlander from Lakeland, Florida, has “a fearless approach to riding” and he’s progressing insanely fast, so when he’s killing it for years to come, remember reading about him here first in his Bio.

Ryan Fudger giving his advice and opinions for free is, well… priceless.

Finish: Kevin Peraza
With some of the tricks this young gun is motivated to learn—like up rail-to-decades and 540 double downside whip airs—it’s safe to say his name is going to become a lot more familiar.

Dakota Roche Interview
How can you go wrong with 11 pages dedicated to one of the most bad-ass riders on the planet? We even have stuff so fresh it didn’t make it into Cult’s Talk Is Cheap.

Off The Clock
All work and no play? Not at Animal, when the workday is done, the fun begins…

Andrew Jackson Interview
When you think of Andrew, first thing that probably pops into your head are his ridiculously high bunnyhops. After reading his interview, you can add racing motocross, flipping cars, and riding with the legend Brian Terada to that list…
