We regret to inform you that the 2021 USA BMX Great Northwest nationals has been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions. We are truly heartbroken for our members in the Northwest that were planning to attend this event. The Redmond event has been a staple on the national schedule for many years & we cannot wait to bring the event back in the future. At this time we would like to let everyone know that we are shifting the Lumberjack Nationals that will take place August 27th-29th at Spokane BMX to a 3-day national. We feel this is the best thing to do in order to give another score option for the Northwest riders.
We are proud to announce that a national event will still take place during the weekend of April 9th-11th. We are shifting to Gretna Bmx Raceway located in Gretna, Louisiana for the 2-day Bayou Classic Nationals. Gretna is an awesome track with a great group of volunteers that will have things dialed for all that attend. We will get the hotels sourced as soon as possible, as well as, the event ad for this National. As always, we appreciate your patience & understanding as we continue to navigate through these strange times.
Oregon – The First Interstate Bank Center
April 9th – 11th, 2021
Redmond, Oregon: The BMX gang heads to the Northwest – and the always-awesome First Interstate Bank Center in Redmond. The arena is perfect, the dirt is ideal and the seating is plush and comfy. Not a bad seat in the house! This is one of the staff’s all-time favorite Indoors of the year, and we hope to see you there on April 9th – 11th for the Great Northwest Nationals.
Located indoors at Redmond’s Deschutes County Fairgrounds, the First Interstate Bank Center has played host to the Great Northwest national since 2008 and there’s a good reason this race keeps returning to Central Oregon. Great track, great racing, great riders and great amenities – from hotels to restaurants.
Placed strategically at the hub of the tri-county area (Deschutes, Jefferson, Crook Counties), this race is the perfect draw for racers from all corners. And if you’re looking for extra activities – from snowboarding to mountain biking, Redmond has it all!
‼️ Full race information coming soon. ‼️
