Each October, Austin plays host to Odyssey's Texas Toast Jam. The jam is a homegrown affair that brings the BMX industry together and draws hundreds of BMXers from around the globe. This year, Texas Toast is also hosting the Ride BMX Number One Rider Awards (NORA Cup). Safe to say, it's the biggest BMX event to happen each year.
