Following a lively series kick-off in Sydney Australia, the Vans BMX Pro Cup Series announces the top pre-qualified seeds of the series thus far, as the tour advances to Spain, May 5-7 for the second qualifier event of the season. The most talented BMX riders will venture to the southern coast of Malaga to compete at the internationally renowned El Skatepark Malaga, a bmx rider’s dream terrain, featuring dynamic opportunities for speed and flow.
Spanish pro Sergio Layos leads the pack, winning the series’ first global qualifier event in Sydney, Australia last month, to set the tone for competition at his hometown proving grounds.
“Making it to the top of the podium at an event that I respect so much made me the happiest human on earth,” said Layos. “Going to Malaga for the next event and getting to ride with all my friends is going to be truly amazing.”
