First Words
Editor in Chief Keith Mulligan reflects upon the late and great Mike Tag. RIP buddy!

“DGAF” Dan Norvell has no doubt done a lot of no-handers in life time, but probably none in a place as strange as this.

Up Front
Sponsor Block, Injured List, and Fine Print...Yes! The Sponsor Block tips the scales once again and reigns over the Injured List, while Fine Print comes in last, but not least.

Pro Q&A: Matthias Dandois
No language barrier for this fine French flatlander, I mean, BMXer. Matthias handled your questions like the pro he is.

Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie…is what you’ll be saying when you see the frames, bars, pedals, cranks, rims, and more in this Products section.

Soft Goods
Some of the latest fabricated items from S&M, Stolen, Profile, Kink, Tree, Animal, Odyssey, Skavenger, and Fit.

Joe Simon and Ryan Navazio talk video talk, and we feature BSD’s Any Which Way, The Northern Embassy’s Embajada En Barcelona, and Skapegoat Skapegoat 6.

Pro Shop
Orlando, Florida’s Out-Spoke ‘N is so much more than a clever name. Mike Cottle fills us in on all the info.

Jaie Toohey, Stefan Lantschner, Andres Velasco, Pedro Melo, and Pat Casey all provide you with stellar action imagery.

Bio: Derek Dorame
The best tour guide in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Derek graces this month’s Bio page.

You write them, Fudger reads ’em, and if you’re lucky, they might be published in here.

Finish: Seth Kimbrough
Who knew that Seth likes hip-hop…

– Features –

A Tribute To Mike Tag
Words from Steve Crandall and photos from Mark Losey, Keith Mulligan, Ike Taylor, Bob Scerbo, and Rob Dolecki only scratch the surface of showing how rad Mike was.

Ride The Lightning
A Metallica themed account of Red Bull’s Ride & Seek trip featuring sick photos of Bezanson, Fuzzy, Ross, Napolitan, Bohan, Keep, Martinez, Klinger, Beringer, Wade, and Neyer--damn!

Two Worlds Apart
Kink always does it right, and this time they did it Thailand and Korea.

On The Timeline
Garrett Reynolds, Ty Morrow, Augie Simoncini, Colin Varanyak, JJ Palmere, Steve-O Croteau,  and Tony Ennis tell the story of Deadline and help us better understand why it has taken four years to finish the video.
