BMX competition draws large crowd at The Kitchen in South Bend


BMX star Brett Banasiewicz hosted his 3rd annual PRO/AM BMX Contest at the Kitchen Skatepark this weekend.

A number of professionals competed Saturday, Sunday was all about the amateurs.

They say Banasiewicz has been a big inspiration for them, as he continues to recover from a major injury.

"I've grown up watching him ride. And this is my first time here at his park. It's such an honor to be here," says rider Katie Munn.

A number of female riders this year brought something different to the competition.

"I'm really stoked on it because this is the biggest girls class that I've ever seen in a competition," says rider Trista Hartman.

More than a hundred professional and amateur riders from around the country came out for the event, with a thousand spectators cheering them on.
