Throwback - Billy Griggs on Haro 91 -
This past Thanksgiving weekend, the Haro crew headed out to Tulsa, Oklahoma to wrap-up the 2017 USA BMX National series competing at the Grand Nationals.
Brooke Crain, after spending the majority of the summer rehabbing from injury, finished off the year finding herself back on form with a 3rd place at both the Race of Champions and another 3rd place at the Grands on Saturday night - giving her a ranking of National 2 for the year. Brooke was also one of the few girls sending it over the Pro Section over the weekend much to the delight of the fans track-side.
Nic Long didn’t have the best Grands result wise but still spoke to over 1000 local high school athletes where the subject was challenges, motivation and specifically, how our athletes have gotten past the obstacles, stereotypes and body imaging to be successful. Very inspiring for the kids.
Nic & Brooke also supported the Thanksgiving Dinner at the Iron Gate, preparing food at the Equality Center while out in Tulsa.
On the Haro/ Promax side, wins at the Grands came from Madelynn Desantis, Chad Street, Braxton Elsen, Addison Finch & Gavin Freewalt. Madelynn Desantis was also crowned National Girls Cruiser Champion overall.
