Challenger BMX Magazine


Challenger BMX Magazine is an irregularly published BMX magazine that takes its form mostly in a newspaper-like format, but also email newsletters, and right here on this very website. Taking cues from the spirit and energy of zines as well as the structured nature of the classic magazine, Challenger prides itself on covering the less covered and timeless aspects of BMX, including but not limited to:

the history of sick spots, behind the scenes of classic photos, as much as possible—all disciplines of the BMX subculture, talking shit with your friends, the balance and interaction of day-to-day life with riding, that small detail like when someone does a stylish skid after they do something awesome in a clip and it’s almost more awesome than the trick itself, the post-session food, shitty skateparks, good skateparks, music but not music reviews, and I guess it should go without saying, but having fun with your friends.

In a nutshell, Challenger is the working-class answer to mainstream BMX.
