VANS BMX PRO CUP 2018: Sydney Teaser & Athlete List

 

Here we go – the almighty Vans BMX Pro Cup kicks off the 2018 season in Sydney! Check the Sydney teaser above and get stoked…

It’s going down 27th – 29th April at Five Dock Skatepark.

This park is a big old boy… Huge transitions, lots of hips and corners, a massive spine, plenty of scope for some seriously wild moves to go down. Don’t believe us? Just revisit this session with Larry Edgar, Dylan Lewis and others… Fully mental. We can’t wait to see what happens there at the end of the month.

The athlete list is now confirmed too – see below!

Who are you most looking forward to watching ride in Sydney?


Vans BMX Pro Cup, the world’s leading platform for elite BMX park terrain competition, enters its second season announcing the pre-seeded World Championship Tour invitees for the 2018 Pro Tour series commencement in Sydney, Australia on April 27 – 28.

The 2018 Vans BMX Pro Cup Tour Pros are selected from the top 10 riders from the 2017 Vans BMX Pro Cup point standings. The Tour Pros are pre-seeded directly into the semi-finals at every Pro Tour event, and are also pre-qualified for the 2018 series World Championship finals. The Tour Pro roster will expand throughout the season with the addition of the top three podium winners from each regional qualifier, who will advance to the Vans BMX Pro Cup Pro Tour, and also secure their invite to the Vans BMX Pro Cup World Championships.

The following pre-qualified Tour Pros, including 2017’s Vans BMX Pro Cup World Champion Larry Edgar, will meet 20 stop invitees, top 3 podium winners from the Chile regional qualifier, and 7 Australia regional qualifier advancers for a complete roster of 40 elite BMX riders, to kick off the series’ first Vans BMX Pro Cup showdown of the year on Saturday, April 28.
