B$Z: 2015 Ride BMX Nora Cup Nominees Announced

The Ride BMX NORA Cup Awards are landing back in Las Vegas with winners of BMX’s highest honor to be announced and awarded on Thursday September 17, 2015 at The Fremont Country Club in Old Town Las Vegas. 
“We left Las Vegas for a couple years, but now we're back. And, after having 14 NORA Cup Awards in Sin City, it's hard not to consider it home. We've been working our asses off to make this the best NORA Cup possible, and I think with all the brands we have involved this year, the video premieres, and the all around energy of being back in may even be the best one ever.” -- Ryan Fudger, Ride BMX Content Director
