Well apparently the official announcement came out at Black Mountain, The ABA will hold three days of Nationals in the heart of the Florida at Disneyworld, as their "falls" October race. Racing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

How cool could this be?

If Disney is involved it will be quite the spectacle and should be a first rate facility, depending on where they put it. October in Florida should be nice weather and it will give me an excuse to go hit space mountain for a day or so.

Props to the ABA for getting Disney involved.


What are your thoughts about this?
As for me, I give it two thumbs up!!!!

Think of all the names we can come up with for that race.
Goofy Nationals
Cinderella Nationals (not the band)
Small World Nationals
Dumbo Nationals
Do we get unlimited access to the park with entry fees?
I got to give it up to the ABA for holding a national in a world famous location.
Maybe they could do some live race coverage on ToonDisney TV???????

Now that is what I am talking about.....

I think this is a great step for BMX, I aplaude the ABA for working to get this going, who knows this might become a yearly tradition.....

I have to say, with this national, the east coast has gotten their fair share of ABA Nationals this year. So there is not any excuse to the East Coast to not represent at the ABA Grands.....

I am glad my wife brought with her to our marriage Interval International, this allows us to stay at many resorts world wide, looks like I am booking the 4 bedroom house.....

Thanks to the ABA for something new, this can open many doors for BMX.... I will look for the official press release but this is great....

Look for the track to be a temporary setup built in one of the Parking lots......This would be their way of allowing racers the opportunity to compete without paying theme park entrance fees......

although the disney daily parking rates will make any of our $20 for a weekend look like a real bargain.

We leave this Thursday for a spring break trip to Orlando....Theme Park boot camp is the theme.....7 Parks in 9 days, 15 roller coasters and Daytona Beach during spring break......

I just taking a wild guess, but I am betting this is going to be at the Walt Disney World Sport Resort, where there are major league baseball fields, centers built for cheerleading contest, and all other sport courts/fields/areas.....

Disney has free parking at the resorts and I am guessing they will have something already worked out, as they host a ton of little league games, cheer competitions, major league spring break games and so on.... Disney also has some of the best transportation, as Disney is bigger then many cities....

I am glad to se something like this and want to focus on the positive and such, until the offical press release is done, none of us will know anything.... Besides, I am sure Gary Ellis will have some very good packages, as he is one of the best out there.....

See you all there.... Well, see you all at other races first, then there......
