September 20th, 2012 brings the BMX world together for the 16th Annual Ride BMX NORA Cup Awards–and today, we’re here to present the top five nominees for the evening.
For those who aren’t in the know for how NORA Cup works, we get in touch with the pros we’re aware of (there’s a lot) and have them send in their votes for who they thought were the best riders at ramp, dirt, flatland, and street riding. Oh yeah, we also give out NORA Cups for the best video, best video part, and the best racer of the year, too. These dudes know everyone and see everything–so there’s no doubt that they’re not a half bad panel of judges to decide things.
Each year, we bring in a solid group of presenters to give these awards away–riders that have a storied and long past in the BMX game. This year is no different; we’ve got a full lineup of guys that have put plenty of their lives into the BMX world.
Enough talk though. Get to The Venetian on September 20th (early) and see which of the guys below are going to be taking home trophies….
