Hundreds of pro and amateur BMX racers from all over the world will be convening at Metro BMX in Bakersfield, California for this weekend’s USA BMX Golden State Nationals.

This weekend’s race features a slew of local and regional riders including local pro Jordan Miranda, Peter Choat a top national rider currently sitting nationally at #4 and Nathan Kitchen who will be heading to the BMX World Championships in two weeks. 

Golden State Nationals is returning to Bakersfield for a second year, and from the two-year old learning to ride on a balance bike, to the expert athlete flying over the obstacles with the greatest of ease, to the seasoned rider who still digs the rush of the ride, every track has something fun for every level of rider.
