30th April 2012 - Issue #039

Hello again fellow riders! How has your month of riding been treatin ya? I'm nursing an aching spine after going over the handlebars yesterday. It seems I've inflamed an old injury I sustained from falling off my dirt bike about a year ago. Hmmmph. This is the sport we play in..

I've been bloody busy this month with a ton of new pages added to DBTP including The Dirt Bike Game Zone where you can find games, puzzles, crosswords (coming soon!) and dirt bike related hangman games. It all sounds a bit geeky, but it's actually good fun once you get stuck into it!

If you like this e-zine, please do a friend and me a big favor and "pay it forward." If a friend DID forward this to you and if you like what you read, please subscribe by visiting... Monthly Dirt

  • MX News Highlights.

  • Vid Of The Month.

  • 'Letter' Of The Month.

  • New Pages.

I encourage you to have your say on any of the pages that have a submission form at the bottom of them. It's easy to do and it helps make this site more interesting and dynamic for everyone. If you want it published as a page you have to make sure your story has a bit of guts to it though, two sentences won't cut it sorry.

If you're not overly confident when it comes to swinging some wrenches on your bike, or you would love to improve your bike fitness - you should seriously consider The Garage Manual download. I've created it to be as clear and precise as possible with step by step photos and training videos.

Vid(s) Of The Month
I put this up on the DBTP Facebook wall a couple of weeks ago, so some of you may have seen it already, but I have to add it here because it's some of the most talented riding I've ever seen. Graham Jarvis Training.
