Despite some absolutely savage weather stopping play, the good dudes over at Vans managed to successfully pull off the first round of the Vans BMX Pro Cup at the weekend.
The contest was a triumph and we are absolutely STOKED to see Sergio Layos take the win! What a guy. Sergio has been killing it forever, so much respect to him for nailing his runs with such precision and style.
With Dennis Enarson in 2nd and Larry Edgar in 3rd, then a suitably stacked top 10, this was one hell of a contest. Check a short highlights video above and some photos below, hold tight for some longer videos and get pumped for the next round...

The word from Vans:
Speed, height, power and originality were in full force today, as the inaugural Vans BMX Pro Cup Series Global Qualifier re-commenced an intense BMX competition in Manly Beach, Australia despite severe weather delays. Beginning with a field of over 30 competitors, Spain’s Sergio Layos seizes the Vans BMX Pro Cup Sydney title, winning first place for executing flawless trick combinations and colossal airs with lightning speed throughout the custom-spec park terrain course. Not far behind him, contest warrior and BMX icon Dennis Enarson placed 2nd, delivering his signature performance, blasting through runs with effortless style and explosive lines. In a well-deserved 3rd place, Larry Edgar surprised all with his fearless momentum, consistency, and creativity, also earning him the LUX Best Trick award for his tuck no-hander to table hip transfer, over the spine.
Finally, in one of the best highlights of the day, Ryan Nyquist, crowd favorite and BMX’s most beloved legend, dominated the park terrain in overall performance, shocking the crowds with one of the most exciting runs of the entire competition, to end with almost landing an insane 900 in the deep end.
