BMX Plus! december 2006: Dave Mirra graces the cover with a backflip Xup sequence from the X Games in Philly. Ryan Nyquist has his monthly column in this issue and tells a funny stork about how shaving your face relates to riding a skalepark. You just have to read the article if you can find this one laying around your house; it's great. We go Inside the Pros' bikes with Steven McCann who is still riding a Mongoose frame (the same sponsor he rides now) and Vic Murphy who shows off his tough-looking Dirt Bros bike that's painted like the American flag. On page 34 we give you top ten products to put on your Christmas wish list, some product of that time were Haro Magnesium pedals, Odyssey Evolver brakes and Quamen flatland bars, all of which are still popular today! Woodward hosts the X Games downhill BMX race and Brandon Meadows takes the main. The Metal Kizz frame gets a testing by Ty Hatheway. Ty Stuyvensant, Allan Cooke and Adam Baker all have funny crash sequences in a feature story on How to Crash with Grace. X Games 2001 in Philadelphia is a ten-page feature story. Highlights include Ryan Nyquist doing a 360 backflip with his classic Oakley goggles on that he used to always wear when he rode. Stephen Murray also fired out a double backflip on dirt. Stephen Murray won dirt, Martti Kuoppa won flat, Bruce Crisman won park and Dave Mirra walked away with the vert win. Todd Walkoviak rounds of the issue with a stellar photo in Moving Pictures doing a no footed can can.
