Brian Tuney, www.digbmx.com, march 2003: 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.

|Twenty is the french distributor for Dig magazine.|
|en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dig_BMX, september 2007: In 2003, Permanent Publishing offered Dig the opportunity to publish nine times per year (bi-monthly in the fall, winter, spring, monthly throughout the summer months). For the next two years, Dig operated under the cyclical nine issue schedule. In the same year, Permanent Publishing expanded to include a U.S. based office in California, employing U.S. ad sales managers.|

We thought we were giving ourselves a mini vacation with this one. Were we ever wrong.... The tiny Dig office on the third floor of Will's house in Belfast is overcrowded with photos, from far off places ranging from Japan to Texas to Germany. We envisioned the 'Photo Issue' to be a break from the normal editorial content and to just load the magazine with photos. Soon enough, we were doing that. But in normal Dig fashion, we decided to cram the magazine with every regular feature we could, involving the art of photography in relation to BMX. We are graced by a gifted staff of photographers and this is ultimately their issue.

www.digbmx.com: Yes, so we went ahead and put a picture of Jason Enns and his dog on the cover of issue 32. No gnarly tricks or staggering accomplishments for BMX, but I feel this cover photo speaks volumes more than a flipwhip or 30-stair rail ever could. Jason Enns, as we all know, is an amazing bike rider. But yet again, there's a lot more to Jason than just the 'BMX Jason.' So there you go, that's the 'Two dog, 1 cat owner Jason' on the cover of issue 32. If you can get past the cover and into the issue, there's a load of 'BMX Jason' contained within his fragments piece; along with an Influenza by Ike Taylor, coverage of the Lambrini Jam, coverage of the Props Megatour 2 trip and a new section called Tight Setup, in which we tackle the un-tackled subject of BMX tech questions. All that plus the good old reliable crap you come to expect from each issue. I can't type anymore. Go complain about the cover now. I'm sure you won't be the first.....
