It’s been a whirlwind of cutting up videos and figuring out all the random behind the scenes that I realized that we haven’t put all the 2015 NORA Cup nominees in one single spot. Voted on by the pros themselves, the NORA Cup is the most coveted award in BMX. For 19 years we’ve been throwing one hell of a party to coincide with the awards and this year is no different, as we head to Las Vegas to give out eight Cups to those who deserve ’em most. Check the nominees and we hope to see you on Thursday!
– The Fremont Country Club is located at 601 Fremont St on the covered strip with all the lights, zip lines, and midget Mr T impersonators.
– Doors open at 8pm and we have a slew of new videos for ya (some announced, some not) that will kick off at 8:30, so be there early.
– All ages and open to the public. We're not sure if it's going to fill up, so arrive early.
– The BLNTD DVD will premiering with full sections from Lahsaan Kobza, Tammy McCarley, Matty Nothnagle, Aaron Maxwell, Robbie Owen, Clay Johnson, and Matt Closson.
– Cult will be premiering their new series, Cultivate.
– Still giving away the same eight awards: Ramp, Dirt, Street, Flat, Video Part, Video, Web Video Part, and the Reader's Choice Award (Voting should open soon)…
