Every Thanksgiving weekend, us BMXican's made the annual pilgramage to the BMX Mecca Land , Tulsa Oklahoma for the USA BMX Grandnationals, the #greatestraceonearth. Now while to some people it might seem crazy that we would leave our family good bye, and head to the middle of the country, sometimes where it is freezing cold, snowing, raining, or worse and drive 24 hours straight to set up in this arena with a giant Oil Driller out front and basically stay in that arena, for 96 hours straight even when we have paid for a nice hotel room. Yep, that is the life of a BMXican, but don't let us scare you off. We do this on our own accord. Yep, we want to be there. Why....??? Read on and you will see why.
