2013 USA BMX Golden Crank Award Finalists

With 16 days til we leave for Tulsa, thousands of BMXers are training up for the biggest race of the year (and likely, the biggest BMX race of all time). As sprints, squats and starts are happening from South Beach to Squamish, USA BMX is prepping a show for the fans that will surely be one for the history books.

Part of that special stuff is a Saturday Night Spectacular where the 2013 USA BMX Pro titles will be decided and, laced into the action, the much-anticipated Golden Crank Awards will be announced.

Voting started early last month, and ended just as the last of the Trick Or Treat candy was handed out on October 31. Since then, the data crunchers in Arizona have been hard at work to tally tens of thousands of votes that came in from licensed USA BMXers of all ages.

When it all boiled down to gravy, they ended up with the winners in each of the four classes (Pro, Rookie Pro, Bike and Team). To get the anticipatory adrenaline going, the top five in each class were released.

OK, so now you know if your picks made the final cut. Get those signs made for when you’re in the stands. Our cameras want to see hundreds of ‘em waiving! And if your pick didn’t make it, time to line up behind one of the 20 who did–kind of like after your team busts out in the regular season, and you have to back someone for the playoffs.
