The NBL Grand National is much more than just a race – it’s an ‘Experience’ and to celebrate the 30th Anniversary, all Amateur #1’s will receive a commemorative Championship award. The Grands ‘Experience’ will also feature a 2008 UCI Continental race, an NBL All-Star Clinic, and a new Saturday Elite Spectacular on Saturday afternoon. For anyone not able to attend, you’ll get to see the action from the comfort of your computer screen through the ‘LIVE’ Webcast at BMXTVDIRECT.
New for 2007, the NBL will showcase the Elite Series classes plus a special ‘Open’ class during the Elite Spectacular on Saturday. The ‘pumped-up’ show will include special music, contests, and a Pro Autograph session. Click over to the NBL website for event information and then visit the Derby City BMX website to find directions to E.P. ‘Tom’ Sawyer Park and other useful local information.
