Back in the late 80s and early 90s, BMX was going through a tough period industry wise with Magazines and sponsors disappearing as the sport took a drop. Much like in the U.S., the U.K. race scene was still solid without the corporate money it had seen in the early 80s and with many of the media outlets disappearing. Zines and Newsletters started appearing more regularly at the races to ensure everyone got their BMX news fix with coverage put together from the Riders/Clubs and Die-hards themselves. UK BMX / EBA started their own, Zines/Magazine, that came out at National events. It changed its name and look over the years but during the early 90s it was called Extra BMX Action with Nev Hollis (Editor) putting it together.
