Friday, March 20th Event Updates

Cajun Nationals & Derby City Nationals Postponed

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect events across the world, more and more BMX events are being impacted. The Cajun Nationals (originally scheduled for April 17-19) will now be postponed. Additionally, the Derby City Nationals scheduled for September 4-6 are postponed due to the Kentucky Derby now been moved to Labor Day weekend. This decision to not hold the Kentucky Derby and the Derby City Nationals on the same weekend came from strong recommendations by city officials, who fear that our BMX families simply will not have available and/or affordable hotels during that weekend. We are working now to find alternative dates for all postponed events.

Any rider who pre-registered for this event will receive a refund automatically to their credit card. Additionally, all reservations for hotel rooms for this event through BMXhotels.com will automatically be canceled and the deposit will be refunded.
