TSG are pleased to announce the signing of Australian born BMX master and overall 2019 Vans BMX Pro Cup winner, Jason Watts.
“We are over the moon to have Jason on our team,” says TSG’s CEO Ruedi Herger. “Few other BMX riders embody the lifestyle like Jason, and as one of the best transition riders in the world, he always shows an incredible amount of style alongside as his huge bag of tricks and creative lines!”
As Ruedi says, no matter the arena Jason is always pushing the limits of what is possible on his Walsh frame. He is also widely praised in the BMX for flavouring his riding with a medley of heritage tricks, showing a knowledge, commitment and respect for BMX that few other riders have.
In line with the announcement it made on 4 November 2019, the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) approved its new regulations on the eligibility of transgender athletes to compete in events on the UCI International Calendar. The decision was made at the meeting of its Management Committee in Dübendorf (Switzerland) on 30 January. The new regulations, which will come into effect on 1 March 2020, are designed to encourage transgender athletes to compete in the category corresponding to their new gender, while guaranteeing a level playing field for all athletes in the competitions in question.
What are the eligibility criteria?
Up until then, the eligibility criteria for competing in the corresponding gender-identity category were those agreed on at a consensus meeting organised by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in 2015. The provision of new scientific knowledge led to those eligibility criteria being reviewed – in particular for male-to-female athletes – at a working meeting held in Lausanne on 19 October 2019, and which was attended by the UCI, other International Federations, experts and representatives of transgender and cisgender athletes. As part of the new consensus, it is agreed that if a Federation decides to use testosterone as an indicator, the transgender athlete will only be eligible to compete in the Women category if their serum testosterone level is below 5 nmol/L.
Get the World champ's frame! If somebody in the last years deserves a signature frame than it´s Dominik Nekolny! Dom loved this frame since the first days he is riding for AUTUM and returned back to it in the last years. All his hard contest combos and crazy technical runs gave us the motivation to re-launch it again. It´s a NO TOUCH!

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!

At SE Bikes, #letsgetkidsonbikes means more than Instagram hits. It’s a movement we truly believe in. We want the next generation of bike riders to fall in love with the sport as we have, for exercise, fun and friendship. Not all kids have the opportunity, though. Which is why this holiday season SE donated hundreds of bikes to six organizations in Philadelphia, all with the goal of … well, getting kids on bikes!
“We wanted to partner with our community and give back to organizations that are working hard to improve the lives or our kids in our cities,” said Frank Zimmer, president of BikeCo, the American distributor of SE Bikes.
