VANS BMX PRO CUP SYDNEY FINALS - FULL HIGHLIGHTS. We decided to go with a comprehensive highlights to show a bit of everything that went down in finals today at the Vans BMX Pro Cup in Sydney. 40 riders were narrowed down to 20 who went head to head for the Pro Cup title. In the end it was Larry Edgar who out-blasted and out-maneuvered his competition, but everyone was KILLING IT. Congrats to Larry, Sergio, and Alex Hiam for taking the 1, 2, 3.
The second annual Vans BMX Pro Cup series kicked off in Five Dock, Australia yesterday as 47 of the world’s leading men and women BMX park terrain riders rallied for the series’ first Pro Tour event of the season. Pushing the boundaries of what’s possible on two wheels, 2017’s Vans BMX Pro Cup World Champion Larry Edgar’s speed defying runs granted him the Australia Pro Cup victory, taking first place for carrying out colossal trick combinations that awed the crowd at the historical Five Dock Skatepark.
“I’m stoked to be back, this event is such a good time,” proclaims first place winner, Larry Edgar. “Riding with all my friends and watching everyone push the limits of their riding is so fun.”

What an intense day! The first stop of the 2018 edition of the Vans BMX Pro Cup brought us a lot of emotions. Sydney was not as sunny as the legend says and after rescheduling the women competition because of the rain we've been scared the weather would not let the event go until the end. Fortunately Mother Nature was on the ride side and we've been able to go through a great women competition, the men semi-finals and finals regrouping some of the best riders of the world.
Ryan Saville who arrived first during the Regional Qualifier yesterday was the favorite of the crowd and offered a great show. He's not the only one, the Australian audience enjoyed a show of great quality, the riders were in an amazing shape and always surprised the crowd. The biggest surprise was probably when Sergio Layos' bike landed in the audience... Oopsie!
Kevin Peraza's superman left everyone speechless, we've been really impressed by the resistance of Brandon Loupos after his massive crash at the end of the Best Trick contest. The australian Alex Hiam was in a great shape, he managed to arrive 2nd for the best trick and 3rd for the Pro Cup. At the end of the day Nina Buitrago won the best trick and Teresa Azcoaga won the first stop of the Pro Cup. For the men the local Jason Watts won the best trick and the winner of the 2017 edition, Larry Edgar won the very first stop of this 2018 edition.

We left the mythic Manly Beach and moved to the most suburban area of 5 Dock and its iconic bowl. One more time Sydney is the first stop of the tour, Australia being one of the countries providing the most talented riders in the world we can already expect a high level of riding during the week-end.
All day long, riders coming from all around Australia and even from overseas compete during the regional qualifier to win a chance to have a shot at the pro cup tomorrow.
During the qualifications we bumped into Nina Buitrago, guest rider from the US, and took advantage
