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.

Our BMX submission courtesy of filmer Keegan Bohannon, featuring Diego Bravo. I met Diego Bravo almost two years ago when he first moved to SoCal from a small town in Ecuador. Since then I’ve watched him go from doing his first ever handrail to doing smiths, feebles and rail rides that some pros won’t even step to.
There's a difference between street riding in LA and LA street riding. Familiar Brand is LA street riding at its core. Here's Anthony "Boy" Flores, Raul Ruiz, Daniel Martinez, Andrew Castaneda, and the rest of the Familiar squad and homies doing their thing.
On a very warm day a couple months ago, I took a very informative tour of the monolithic operation that is the ODI Grip factory. They literally churn out grips 24 hours a day, five days a week. Unreal.
