|issue 7 - august 2008
Bart de Jong, www.fatbmx.com, august 2008: Risto sent me his latest magazine. Sahtel number 7. It's more of a book to be honest. 130 pages total. Most of it is written in Estonian so that's where it stops for me. Looking at the content though I can spot a stylish mag with all sort of lifestyles including that of BMX. Something you would expect from someone who is putting on one of the best contests of the year (those who have been to a Simpel Session contest will agree with this). BMX can be found on pages 124 - 127 (photo gallery) and pages 50-63 (interviews with Chad Shack, Joe Simon and proud daddy Will Stroud). Wish that was in English as it would have been interesting to read that part. Maybe Risto has the English version we can use here on FATBMX as a collab or something, that'd be good.
