This year is JUST JAMS. All about supporting each other and getting on the big ramp. No need for 44 second runs, no judging sheets, just fun, radness and prizes if you push your envelope! We will have under 13,

READY TO HIT THE BOOST BUTTON? When you're going mac ten at a take off you want to know you're in safe hands, the boost is coming and you want to go all out! Jump on board a Knightsbirdge and sail your way through the session without any second guess.
The ultimate boost weapon went back to the workshop and partook in some surgery! Now coming with more rounded top tube sizes from the 21.1, 21.4 and 21.6! This blasting beast is well equipped! With welded lugs, lowered chain stays for extra brake clearance and a newly embossed head tube badge. The graphics took on a simplified approach and we think this really sets the Knightsbridge v2 off!

Some events become traditions. The organizers are stuck doing the work year after year. It's nothing bad, just a lot of work. Behind the scenes it's always hectic, there are always problems to be solved. While the party people have made plans for a trip, the organizers are keeping their fingers crossed that things won't go out of hand and everyone will have a good time. The 2019 Freedom BMX Awards took place in Aurich at the Adventsjam last week.
