Pro Cup Champion, Larry Edgar spent most of his runs airborne, blasting huge transfers and tricks including a massive 360 tailwhip to fakie, cementing his third-place spot.
The Best Trick competition followed the Men’s Finals, producing some very creative riding as the competitors dug deep to stand out from the crowd. Arizona's Kevin Peraza caught the judge’s attention with a huge 180 backflip over the spine, earning him the Best Trick title. Canada’s Corey Walsh narrowly missed out on a podium finish, however his endeavors were not in vain as he was awarded Best Line after nailing the biggest transfer of the course with a table-top from the furthest hip to the tombstone.
The vibe over the past three days has been amazing, with an eclectic mix of attendees from BMX professionals to first time viewers of BMX coming together to witness some of the best BMX riding in the world and hang out in the Vans Village.
Building excitement for the world title race, the top 20 rankings will advance to the next stop of the 2019 Vans BMX Pro Cup Series, taking place in Mexico City, Mexico on August 16 – 18. The top three from the German regional qualifier have also secured their invites to the Vans BMX Pro Cup Series World Championships, to be held in Huntington Beach, CA this September.
