2013 Ride BMX NORA Cup Top Five Nominees

The time has come to announce the nominees for this year’s 17th annual Ride BMX NORA Cup awards, which will be held at Emo’s in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, October 20th.

As always, the nominees and winners are determined by the pros themselves, making winning a NORA Cup the most respectful and prestigious award in BMX. There are seven categories: #1 Ramp Rider, #1 Dirt Jumper, #1 Flatlander, #1 Street Rider, #1 Racer, Best Video Part, and Video of the Year. Each pro has the opportunity to vote, but only in the appropriate categories, as flatland and racing are so specific these days. And, for the second year in a row, we’re giving away a Reader’s Choice cup to the rider that our readers voted as the person that killed it overall this year. The pros and you guys decided who killed it the most in the last year, we count up the votes, get some NORA Cups made, spend way too much time organizing a party, invite a bunch of legends to give away each award, and we all wake up groggy the next morning. Simple enough, right? See you there.

And, of course, many thanks to our sponsors for making it possible: Red Bull, GoPro, Dan’s Comp, and good ol’ Pabst Blue Ribbon.
