Mark Noble, Ride BMX UK #8, december 1993: A curious magazine - what happens when a rider tries to make something decent but was held back byprinters and typesetters: mix 3 parts rider control to 6 parts mystery and bad phone lines, and you have a dullard of a magazine. Still, it was getting there. I guess. Killed - July '89.

Iain Parkinson, april 2005: Just browsing your site and saw what I think is an error. Not being picky but I'm sure the guy on the front cover was called 'Andy Preston'. He and another chap, who's name I can't remember, used to do a 10min freestyle 'Tips n Tricks' type show on one of the Saturday morning kids TV show's in the 80's. I think the other guy was called Mike or something like that.
Robbie Peru, june 2005: Yeah, the guy on the front is Andy Preston. He and Mike Pardon (Raleigh) used to do the BMX tips n that on Saturday mornings. They always had real cool music on like early electro albums and stuff...
