Ride BMX’s 2009 Covers & The Stories Behind Them

January/February 2009
Issue #152

Sean Burns, photo by Sandy Carson.

Sandy Carson occasionally sends us photos, and like most contributions, this shot of Sean Burns probably sat for a while before we found a good spot for it. No doubt we chose this photo for the cover because we had our 2008 NORA Cup Awards interviews in the issue. Sean won the Cup for Best Video Part from Metal’s Dead Bang, so even though this move wasn’t in that video part, it went well with the feature article. The roof drop is huge, the landing is sketchy, the black and white flashed photo is raw as hell, and the style is pure Burns. So good. —Keith
