Old and young compete at USA BMX Great NW Nationals

    View a video report from KTVZ on the USA BMX Great Northwest Nationals.

    Hundreds of BMX racers converged on the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center this past weekend for the USA BMX Great Northwest Nationals.

    They traveled from locations across western North America, including Oregon, Washington, California, British Columbia, Idaho, Nevada and Arizona. They raced and raced and raced on the dirt track that occupied the arena floor of the Hooker Creek Event Center throughout the three-day event, which concluded Sunday.

    Plenty of them tumbled to the dirt on the three banked turns and numerous rollers, while some rode well enough to wheel away with tall purple trophies in hand. Dozens of riders finished first in their classes, including several Central Oregonians: Redmond’s Taylor Stephens (USAC junior development boys class, Friday, and 15 expert class, Saturday), and Bend residents Sunny Harmeson (41-45 girls cruiser, Friday), Christian Klampe (9 novice, Friday and Sunday), Timmy Richards (10 novice, Saturday) and Gene Nelson (41 and over inter, Saturday).
