Women's BMX has progressed a huge amount recently! Since the inclusion of a women's jam / demo in the past, the popularity and pure stokage has made the level of riding jump up a few notches.
This year, Vans BMX Pro Cup gave the women a proper competition. A full, year-round contest series, the same as the dudes. This is great for female BMX recognition – Vans are doing it right. The crowd, the riders, everyone was buzzing on the women's competition in Malaga at the Vans BMX Pro Cup this year.

BEST TRICK – Perris Benegas with her huge toboggan transfer
Vans Press Release:
USA’s Perris Benegas revealed the day’s most powerful riding for the women’s division, ruling the course with speed and grace to claim her first Pro Cup podium win, while Spain’s front-runner Teresa Azcoaga turned up the heat in her last run to clench second place and the overall series championship title. Pro Cup newcomer Lara Lessman maintained her semi-finals momentum, surpassing the stacked field with advanced tricks and big airs to place third.
“I’m completely blown away, I can’t believe I won the world championship title,” Azcoaga gratefully expressed. “To go from only riding my local park one year ago, to winning the series is a dream.”
