We worked with Glasgow-based clothing company Red Torpedo to make a special edition cover of Sideburn 38. 

Red Torpedo sponsor a bunch of real road racers and now the two of the most successful flat track racers in the sport - Shayn...

The digital edition of Sideburn 38 is now online to purchase for £2.50. You get to keep it until our future robot overlords turn off the human internet in favour of their own machine-only web system. 

We always show a few free pages...

The magazine won't land until next week, but we're putting it up on pre-order now if you want to get in now and be sent out with the first wave. 


Some issues of Sideburn include dashes of film, art, adventure or lef...

This is getting daft. Sunday's race was delayed nearly two hours because of rain, so the first singles practice started at 11pm UK time. I saw the new schedule, watched singles Qualifying 1 (Q1), then set my alarm for 1am and slept...

I'm not sure how long I can keep this up. I watched all the practice, qualifying, heats and semis, then fell asleep for an hour after setting my alarm for 2am. Ugh.

There were no Production Twins at the NY ST, so the extra class was...

This is a little bit later than usual for a couple of reasons, but I saw this race live in the flesh, having flown out to the Midwest and driven for hours on end to follow the fortunes of Red Torpedo-sponsored riders, Jared Mees an...
