Team Mongoose spent the Thanksgiving Holiday in Tulsa, Oklahoma for USA BMX Grand Nationals AKA The Greatest Race on Earth. USA BMX hosted the event at River Spirit Expo Center. More than 5,000 racers of all ages and ability levels, showed up to spend their holiday at the track.
Mongoose was fortunate to have one of the best pit/display space in the entire expo center thanks to our partnership with the USA BMX Foundation. Mongoose was given an awesome pit space to display our brand and products, and we took full advantage. Here’s a shot of Mongoose Pro Justin Posey modeling in front of our pit space.
The amount of foot traffic to the Mongoose pit was insane. The top recurring comment we heard over the 4-day event was “I’m so glad to see Mongoose’s back!” with “My first bike was a Mongoose” being a close second. With Mongoose having such deep roots in the sport of BMX race, it's been fantastic to meet our fan base at the track where it all started.
A special kudos to Justin Posey, who did an amazing job representing our brand in 2019. It was inspiring to see him take time to talk with fans and be such a great steward for the sport. Also, a big shout out to all of our rad race teams. Our teams flew the Mongoose flag proudly at the track, in their schools, and in their neighborhoods, and we truly wouldn't be where we're at today without their support.
Here's to bigger and better things in 2020! Stay rad.
