Sometimes things slip through the net and that's exactly what happened with this one. During the Vans BMX Support Group tour in Europe and UK the crew spent the afternoon at Victoria Bowl in London before heading to the House Of Vans and our man on the ground Antoine Sabourin was there to capture all the good stuff from Kevin Peraza, Sergio Layos, Kevin Kalkoff and more. Better late than never! That last line from Peraza is bonkers...
Ben Hennon has been there and done pretty much all of it, and made it look fun every step of the way. He recently stepped away from being a Pro BMX rider so Vans thought it only right to celebrate ten years of partnership and edited together some of the best moments they've had together along the way. Whether it was touching the roof at contests or ripping his local setup, everything has always been 100% with Ben.

Day four. The first day of nice-ish weather in Korea, we spent pretty much the entire day driving around getting booted and driving around more. At times the crew was pretty frustrated, but at the end of the day, both Dak and Ty stacked more than a few heavy clips. We're off to Malaysia and it's pretty much a full travel day, so expect a delay with these videos, but we'll be back.
Day two was filled with copious amounts of weather, so we headed to an amazing spot under a bridge. But even that couldn't save us from the side rain that soaked the spot, so we made up for it by heading to the local Vans store to grab some free stuff...
