With the “Bounce Back” Nationals gaining interest and commitments from BMXers across the country, USA BMX is out today with the next two races on the comeback trail of the 2020 National Series
Following a lot of waiting and beind-the-scenes wrangling, USA BMX announced today that the week after the Bounce Back Nationals in Pryor, OK on June 5-7, the tour will make its way out west for a rare same-year return to Black Mountain BMX in Phoenix for the newly-named “Desert Classic” Nationals on June 12-14.
After Phoenix, the rig will high-tail it East, and be in Rock Hill, SC on June 19-21 for the previously-postponed Carolina Nationals. Both new races (and the Bounce Back) will be three-day nationals, and none will be Pro Series races (Pro Open only, off the small hill in Rock Hill).
The Carolina Nats replaces the now-postponed Midwest Nationals, previously scheduled for the same weekend. Illinois Governor, JB Pritzker has been tightening COVID restrictions, so it looks like it’s going to be a while til we can hammer stakes into the ground at Searls Park.
Two additional BMX Canada races have been announced as canceled*:
The Greater Toronto Nationals – Stouffville, ON (June 19-21)
Firestorm Nationals – Kelowna, BC (June 26-28)
*The Frasier Valley Nationals in May were canceled previously.
