The impact of restrictions around the world is being felt by the BMX community as mass gatherings and events are being cancelled or suspended. The opportunity to get out on the tracks is limited, in some instances not available at all. The industry is being hit worldwide, not only for riders but also shops and businesses that rely on your being able to gear up and push those pedals. Whilst we all know what we cannot do, there are still ways in which you can quench your BMX thirst. The most obvious way is videos, watching online and maybe contributing to forums and discussions. There are also some other means by which you can get your BMX fix – games. We are not just talking video games here either, there is a range of activities that incorporate a love of BMX without having to grab a helmet and gloves.
TSG are stoked to welcome four fresh new faces to their global team roster: Young pipe and slopestylist snowboarder Jonas Hasler; Croatian big air and slopestyle ripper snowboarder Lea Jugovac; Mountainbiker and adventurer Hannes Klausner; and the one and only Spanish queen of BMX, Teresa Miranda Fernandez.
Teresa Miranda Fernandez has been riding for our Spanish distributor for three years but in recognition of her outstanding flow and style, both in park and on trails, we’ve invited her to join the TSG Global Team. “It‘s a dream come true,” says Teresa who is without doubt one of the finest female BMX riders out there. “I can’t believe I’m gonna be riding in the same team as some of the best riders in the world,” she adds with an ample serving of humility.
Teresa rides with our Ivy helmet and the Tahoe A and Joint knee pads.
This year was like no other, and due to COVID-19 restrictions like most sporting spaces, BMX local tracks closed this spring, giving USA BMX members no place to practice or race. To safely get members back on bikes and back to the tracks, USA BMX worked side-by-side with their 320 tracks to ensure members a safe return to the track. To assist tracks with sorting through local rules and regulations from multiple jurisdictions and authorities, the USA BMX team created tools to guide track operators step-by-step through this challenging process with "Ready to Race" guidelines, marketing, and educational resources. The launch of the safety tool kit was just the beginning of a new 2020 for USA BMX. The following months led to safely running 21 stops of the national series, launching a virtual amateur freestyle series ending with an in-person national championship, an extended partnership with Mongoose and USA BMX Foundation, and successfully closing the national championships at the Grand Nationals.
"The USA BMX team has a successful track record of running events, growing members, and pushing the
After more than a month of competition, last night Mexico were crowned winners in a ceremony that took place at Montpellier Town Hall and was broadcast live on Twitch. The Nation's teams were composed of the best athletes from E-FISE Montpellier 2020, and this brand new competition brought together riders and urban sports enthusiasts from across the globe. It was the fans who determined that Mexico was winner, as they had been voting for their favourite Nation on a platform specially dedicated to the event.
Winning the contest means that Mexico take home the top prize of 4 invitations fo FISE Montpellier 2021, for the team's captains and ambassadors. In second and third place on the podium is Brazil and Colombia meaning they are awarded 2 invitations each for their team captains.
The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is delighted to announce that an equal number of female and male cyclists will be taking part at the Olympic Games Paris 2024. The development was confirmed earlier today, when the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) met to discuss and approve the event programme for the Games. Gender equality is one of the objectives of the UCI’s Agenda 2022, the Federation’s roadmap for the development of our sport. A total of 514 athletes will take part in the cycling events at Paris 2024, with an equal split between women and men. A first in the Olympic history of our sport, this parity has been achieved thanks to changes made to the athlete quotas for cycling’s disciplines. Having already been achieved in mountain bike, BMX Racing and BMX Freestyle Park on the Tokyo 2020 programme, gender parity is now a reality for road and track cycling as well.
It should be pointed out that this significant development for our sport comes at a time when the number of athletes taking part in the Games is being reduced across different sports, in line with the recommendations of the IOC’s Olympic Agenda 2020. Cycling will thus have 14 fewer places at Paris 2024, a reduction that affects road and mountain bike. This moderate decrease will be partly offset by the allocation of one extra place for track cycling and six in BMX Freestyle Park, with the number of athletes competing in both the men’s and women’s freestyle events increasing from nine to 12.
With its two long-standing disciplines of road and track cycling having been joined by mountain bike

This video isn’t focused on just biking clips or just bangers as most videos within BMX do. The fact people are afraid to think out of the box in our passion made me really run on a different track. So I felt that somebody had to make a difference on this. My purpose on this video is to put the viewer in context of different interpretations on what BMX means and how much it takes over the way of looking at things. And a lot of riders in this world aren’t conscious perceiving these points.
I wanna create the ability for people to experiment more within BMX & its art. Open doors and show theres no rules. You can go as crazy as you want.
All clips are shot with my handycam & all the music you’ll hear are self produced unreleased songs.
