Our 2011 Nebraska BMX Hall of Fame ceremony was held Saturday August 27, 2011. We were proud to announce the class of 2011 and honored them at an awards ceremony and dinner held in Valentino’s restaurant located in Lincoln, Nebraska. The event coincided with the Nebraska State Championship BMX racing weekend at Star City BMX in Lincoln.

Last year’s inaugural event, held in conjunction with the first ever Nebraska BMX reunion was an event to remember. “We inducted a large 2010 class of Nebraska BMX pioneers last year and we’ll continue the Nebraska BMX Hall of Fame this year by inducting more riders from the 1970’s, plus we’ll add a 1980’s category. Next year we plan to add the 1990’s”, said Tim Lillethorup of the Nebraska BMX Hall of Fame Committee.

The list of 2011 Inductees includes three riders from the 1970’s, two riders from the 1980’s and one track operator. Congratulations to the following people who have competed for many dedicated years and played key roles in promoting BMX in the state of Nebraska and beyond.
