BMX videos, photos, interviews, and everything in between…
This year marks the 23rd annual NORA cup (since we resurrected it) and the first for OUR BMX. And what a night it was—with the new Number One Women’s Rider category, a bunch of new faces up on stage, and a packed house—the energy and vibe of the night was amazing.
This year marks the 23rd annual NORA cup (since we resurrected it) and the first for OUR BMX. And what a night it was… following up a crazy day at the Battle Of Hastings with Qualifying and the Best Trick, the energy and vibe of the crowd was invigorating. Once the dust settled at the BOH, the BMX masses made the move over to the venue St Mary In The Castle. And what a night it was—with the new Number One Women’s Rider category, a bunch of new faces up on stage, and a packed house. After our host Scotty Cranmer kicked the night off, we had a BMX who’s who of presenters including Morgan Wade, Tom Dugan, Chris Moeller, Rob Wise, Darryl Nau, Ruben Alcantara, and the Moore brothers Marc and Rich.
Thanks to everyone who showed up, partied, cheered, and just helped keep the NORA cup flame alive—Our BMX loves you. And the biggest thanks goes out to all of our sponsors, none of this would’ve been possible without the help from Source BMX, Vero, GT, Vans, ODI, Monster, Odyssey, Snafu, Shadow, Sunday, Subrosa, WeThePeople, Trail Boss, Kink, Mongoose, Hyper, Stolen, Haro.

Courage Adams recently went back to Nigeria for the first time since leaving, where he connected with the Lagos BMX scene, visited his family, and got to experience his country of origin in a whole new way.
Our BMX submission courtesy of Gordan Macdonald featuring Quin Ellis. 21-year-old SoCal local Quin is in the Fire Academy, so he rides, films, and skates during the few months in between his training because he’ll get dropped if he gets hurt. Sounds crazy, but at least Quin makes it count when he gets the chance because he shreds and makes it look casual, too.
Argentina's Gaspar Guendulain recently spent six months in Long Beach, where he left his mark at spots all over the LA area with his unique style that is minimal with the grinds, yet insanely tech and incredibly smooth.
