These videos took a little longer to put together than I anticipated, but it’s honor to drop these NORA Cup 2020 winner videos for the next week. First up is Trail Ride Of The Year winner Matty Aquizap. While I could explain the reasons Matty deserved it this year, I’ll let the people who voted for him do the talking…
Congrats Matty on winning and it’s no short feat to be nominated, so want to give a shout out to Cory Nastazio, John „superfly“ Skavarla, Mark Potoczny, and Russel Brindley on their nomination…
I also have to thank the following brands for supporting/allowing NORA Cup to happen…
Monster Energy, Vans Shoes, Vero, Source BMX, Profile Racing, Mongoose Bikes, Kink BMX, Subrosa, Stolen, Odyssey, Cult, Snafu, Haro Bikes, ODI Grips, Eclat, Sunday Bikes, GT BMX, Cinema, Colony, Pumped BMX’s Trail Boss, Bell Helmets, Shadow Conspiracy, Hyper Bike Co, and Eighties BMX.

Brief NORA Cup History:
The Number One Rider Award was created in 1979 by BMX Action Magazine. Originally focused on racing, NORA Cup had just two categories (rider and team) but it quickly became the most prestigious award in BMX. In 1985, Freestylin’ Magazine introduced most popular freestyle rider, team, and bike categories. The NORA Cup awards ended in 1991 when the publisher of both magazines (Wizard Publications) went out of business. In 1997, Ride BMX and Snap Magazine resurrected NORA Cup and continued until Ride BMX was shuttered in early 2019. The former employees of Ride created Our BMX and continued the NORA Cup tradition…
WHAT IS OUR BMX?!
In short, we are the Ride BMX staff out on our own. We’re building from the ground up and our goal is pretty simple. We want to continue what we love. We want to create great content, feature awesome riders, and contribute, push, and show why we love BMX. We sincerely appreciate any and all support… —Ryan Fudger, Jeff Zielinski, Adam Watkins, and Justin Benthien.
