31st December 2011 - Issue #035

Welcome to 2012 fellow riders! I got a bit too caught up in the festivities to be able to get this December issue out on the 31st.. sorry about that, but here it is anyway. The last week of 2011 was pretty ace for me - I beat my personal jumping record and reached another level in my riding, and scored a wicked ride through the dunes with no one around except me, my brother and my GoPro to capture the action. Yeehaa!

To check out some GoPro pics from the dunes and our MX track hit the like button at www.facebook.com/pages/Dirt-Bike-Tips-And-Pics
