Filed under General on October 30, 2019 | Comment(s)

The 2019 National Series took its final laps this weekend at the Rockstar Energy Bike Park in Houston, Texas. The Lone Star Nationals gave all USA BMX Members a weekend full of action packed racing with one of the best looking abilities in the nation. From the Elite Men and Women, to the little tykes on little bikes, the excitement was high for the first glimpse into the 2020 Worlds venue. 

The Lone Star Nationals were greeted by a chilly Friday pre-race in Houston, Texas. But with those cold temps, Friday brought a great night of racing at the future venue of the 2020 Worlds. The Final 2019 GoPro North American SX Series kicked off in a big way on Friday Night. An unlucky wreck in turn one put Chase's, Joris Daudet, on to the Injured Riders list, leaving Corben Sharrah, Anderson Souza, and Connor Fields to take their turns in battling it out in the Elite Men's class.
