Video: Huge Bowl Lines at the Vans Pro Cup BMX Comp

Sep 16, 2019
by James Smurthwaite  

Taj Mihelich has already given us a quick preview of the finals of the 2019 Vans Pro BMX Cup, where he was the artist in residence last weekend, but the footage coming out all weekend was so good we thought it was definitely worth a revisit after the fact

Huntington Beach was the final round of four in the series and saw Aussies Jason Watts and Natalya Diehm crowned as series champions but it was the two Americans, Kris Fox and Perris Benegas who picked up the wins on the day. Check out all the action from a wild day of full speed in the video above.

 You should check out more of Jason Watts, he has done some of those monster 360s between dirt jumps and across bowls. Great bike control.

 Jason Watts is a consumet professional. The nicest bloke you'll ever meet and I want an edit with him and a stylish mountain biker. I.e Semenuk/R-Dog/Johansson etc etc

 I love the precision they have. It's crazy seeing them transfer around a corner. And the brakeless riding is crazy.

 Rad to see two Aussies take the overall. Interestingly there are no Australians that compete in major Slopestyle comps at the moment. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an Aussie compete in rampage or crankwrx slope

 Best part is you can go down to Huntington Beach and ride this place for free on Wednesdays. Pretty cool turn out usually too which can be a little intimidating, because a lot of pro riders show up, but everyone is super chill. Gonna miss this place for sure when I move.
