31st August 2011 - Issue #032

Welcome back to another issue of Monthly Dirt. What a month! Plenty of motocross madness for this happy chappy - I got my arse whipped racing in mid-winter slop and had a perfect weekend of riding back up North on a private track in abnormally hot weather. Check out DBTP on Facebook to see the pics.

Heaps to talk about in this issue so I'll begin with this.. Playbike are a new graphics company designing some really cool stuff for dirt bikes and snowmobiles. They've offered YOU 15% off all graphics purchases over 100€. To take them up on this offer use the coupon code - DBTP - on their online store. It's valid until 30th September 2011 so get into it!
