New Team Rider

Welcome Jake Atkinson

The UK slope ripper joins TSG

TSG’s mountain bike team just got a fresh pair of wheels with the addition of 20-year-old UK freestyle ace Jake Atkinson. Welcome to the team Jake.

Jake is one of those glitches in the matrix of professional mountain bike, dropping out of nowhere to rattle the rankings with a bag of tricks and truck loads of natural style. Earning his ticket to ride in nationals Jake rode out of the shadows of his hometown Kendal to land second place at the 2023 Red Bull Roof Ride. He’s got the guts to drop new tricks like 360 triple truck drivers in competitions.

“I’ve always dreamt of getting into the biggest events, but I never thought it would happen as fast as it did,” Jake admits.

Jake grew up smashing the rocks and trails of Kendal, in England’s green and pleasant Lake District and on his journey to pro status he’s ridden it all, from trials at seven, BMX at eleven and now MTB slopestyle. His intuitive style and a hunger for a seat at the top table of biking has seen him pop up from unknown rider to Red Bull Rookie of the Year 2023 in the turn of a cog.

But drive aside he’s also biking for all the right reason: “I’m just trying to have a good time and keep whatever I’m doing as fun as possible!”

Jake and TSG are set to have a ton of fun as partners and the safer he feels in our kit the more confident he’ll be dropping hammers.

Welcome to the team Jake – Go hard!
