USA BMX Lumberjack Nationals

When: Aug. 18-20 2017

For the first time ever, the BMX Lumberjack Nationals are coming to Spokane for three days of high-flying, dirt-biking competition. There will be racers of all ages — men and women, girls and boys — racing for glory on a track carefully prepared to meet national standards and showcase the Northwest BMX scene. That shouldn’t be hard, considering the Spokane BMX local racing club is ranked No. 27 in the nation, and among our local racers is high-ranked teen rider Lizzy Bowers, who could surprise some of the out-of-town racers when they come to her home turf to take her on.
