Congratulations, The Higginson Family! Inducted into The British BMX Hall Of Fame Class of 2023

The Higginson’s in BMX. Martin Higginson started working on the BMX News publication in early 1981. After a few months, the financial backing for the paper stopped. So Martin’s dad, Arnold, financed the continuation with a new name, BMX Weekly, and still in paper format. Nigel Higginson became involved in taking the pictures and writing content, and Marjorie looked after the books while Jonathan raced for the brand.

Later BMX Weekly became a magazine format and turned into a bi-weekly publication reaching 46,000 copies at its peak.

Everyone wanted to see themselves in print, and especially see the race results.

It was crucial for all to know when and where race meetings would be held, at a time when there was no other medium for updates.

We want to thank and welcome the Higginson Family into the British BMX Hall of Fame for 2023.
