Check out this press release from NBL. Some good BMX action here in Florida for Spring Break!
It’s Spring Break in Florida and everyone knows what that means – Back-to-Back NBL National weekends at two of Florida’s finest tracks. The festivities kick off March 14-16 in West Palm Beach at Okeeheelee BMX for the Gator Nationals and then things get even hotter in the Sunshine State when the NBL National Series heads up north to the Orlando BMX track for the Easter Classic, March 21-23.
The Gator Nationals will be held at the awesome Okeeheelee BMX Track in West Palm Beach (www.okeeheeleebmx.com), and features two War-Of-The-Stars Pro events and the last two UCI Continental Series races of the season. This means that all of the US Olympic hopefuls and many of the top male and female stars from around the world will be in attendance. That’s three Pro Events in one weekend and with Olympic qualifying points on the line, the Gator Nationals will be epic. “Okeeheelee is one of my favorite tracks in the country and I’ve been looking forward to this race! – You gotta love that red clay and the track always has great flow” said NBL reigning National Champion, [Kyle Bennett].
