Have you booked your tickets yet? Get them here, and be quick about it…

Know the course

The set up this year looks one of the best ever. Make sure you pick your ideal spot to watch some of the best riding go down. Keep hydrated with cans of refreshing lager beer and remember to make some noise for BMX.

Here’s who you’ll be watching

Riders already confirmed include Australian BMX legends Logan Martin (NASS ’13 BMX champ, FISE 2014 and Simple Sessions 2014 winner), NASS 2013 favourite Todd Meyn and hotly-tipped Brandon Loupos and Brock Horneman. Also Daniel Sandoval and Kyle Baldock now now 100% confirmed. From the UK Anton McGuirk, Ryan Taylor, Jack Watts and Tom Justice will all be fighting for podium positions, plus keep an eye on high flying Dean Cueson (GBR), Matt Priest (GBR) Mike Curley (GBR) and South Africa’s main man Greg Illingworth. Plus this motley crew of UK shredders, Isaac Lesser, Tom Isted, Leon Perkins, Jack Clark, Karl Walker, Ollie Palmer, Josh Webber, Jambul Giles, Vinnie Mayne, Franny Wright, Joe Roofe, Del Shepherd, Matt Shepherd, Lima Eltham, Dan Harris, Sam Cunningham, James Bentley, Ryan Elcock, Daniel Juchatz, Chris Czako, George Braegar, Luke Padgett, Brad McNicol, Paul Jeffries, Shaun Gornall, Scott Hamlin, Dan Shepherd, James Jones, Lee Carter, and Jason Phelan (IRE).

Get ready to party hard

If you’re not busy watching some of the best riding in the world this weekend then you’re smashing it big time at the parties. So much good stuff goes down with the night time festivities that it’s cemented in your memories for ever. Which leads us nicely on to the next section….

Know your tent

There’s nothing worse than entering the wrong tent when you’re blind drunk at NASS. You have to create the biggest beacon possible to find it again. Or if you’re particularly smart you’ll have the coordinates saved in your map app. Do the right thing lads, lets not wake up next to a monster.

NASS backpack essentials


Forget everything you leant from Scouts. You’re packing for NASS not a primary school camping trip. First thing on everybody’s list is Lynx, ideally Africa but it’d be wise to pack a multi pack of various scents.

Jumbo pack of anti pregnancy sheaths, better to be safe than sorry. Statistically over 709 children have been conceived since NASS was established.

Bottle opener. Pretty obvious, but it’s consistently forgotten by everyone.

Baby wipes. Ideal for cleaning your whole body and provides luxury when visiting the toilet.

Misc items to ‘help the hangover’. These vary form person to person but would usually consist of Calpol, tinned fry up, paracetamol, Buckfast, scented sick bags, ice cool water, a flask of gin, dogs hair and some Lucozade.
