Greatest BMX event in the world is about to start

November 25, 2008

The countdown is on – just 2 days to go before the ABA’s BMX Grand Nationals start at the Expo Square in Tulsa, Oklahoma and what a superb weekend it promises to be. Folk are real excited about the track that has been built and the weekend promises to be full of thrills and spills as the world’s best descend on OK.

Below is a schedule of the event – note in particular the race of Champions on Friday 28th and the Grand Nationals the following day. Further you should not miss out on the exhibition pro spectacular on the Friday evening.

There’s gonna be a lot of people down there so why not presign for your event – go online to www.ababmx.com and you will find all the information you need, it will save you a lot of time and frustration.

Finally a word of advice – take a lock and cable – a stolen bike is gonna ruin your fun, you’ll be mighty pissed off but every year it happens.

Below the schedule of events is a video from GMOSTL of some of the action from the 14x event in 2007 – more of the same.
