What a crazy day at the Vans BMX Pro Cup. Both Luke Parker and Jake Wallwork ride well in Semi’s but didn’t quite make finals however Alex Hiam and Chris James really put on a show and qualified 2nd and 3rd for the finals.
Again both the guys put down solid runs with scored them 3rd for Alex and 5th for Chris! Stoked on all the guys riding and we’ve had a blast all week so thanks to Vans for that! Alex also scored 2nd place in the Redbull best trick with the pegs to whip to see below.
Our Brazilian rider Paulo Saçaki is already in Santiago, Chile, where he will compete in the Vans BMX Pro Cup – Regional Qualifier, from March 23 to 25.
The event will go through Australia, USA, Mexico and Spain.
The top three podium winners will advance to the Vans BMX Pro Cup Pro Tour in the USA.
“It will be an honor to be able to represent my country once again. There will be more than fifteen Brazilian riders in attendance and this will show how Brazil has much BMX talent on the rise.
I am looking forward to the event, I have been riding the new bowl of my city, which has been very fun of late.
I am hoping to get a top three spot and go on the whole tour.” – Paulo Sacaki.
We are supporting the Capital Lou jam this year, if you’re anywhere near St Louis make sure you get out to it.
The plans for the weekend are to meet up at Shady Jack’s Saloon (1432 N Broadway, St. Louis, MO) at 10a.m on Saturday, April 7th for FREE PARKING, as well as the kick-off announcements.
We will leave from there on bikes at 11a.m. to kick the Jam off. All contests will be running from 11a.m. to around 7p.m., when we’ll make our way back to Shady Jack’s to announce the winners and hand out prizes.
We will be hosting a variety of contests through out the day, including a BATTLE OF THE CREWS Instagram contest. Bring a crew, film the most fire Instagram video with them during the Jam, and win a cash prize at the end of the night.
We will also have a CUSTOM BMX Bike that we will be raffling off at the Jam to fund a FREE BBQ Cook-out the next day at a skatepark for all the riders traveling to town for the weekend.
After the Jam (8p.m.), everyone 18 and older will be invited to come inside Shady Jack’s Saloon for the After-Party / my 21st Birthday Party.
There will be full bar access (21+) & good food being served until 1a.m.
This won’t be one to miss! I hope to see you all there.
We teamed up with LUX BMX to put on the first annual Gnarcherfield Jam. The plan was pretty simple, we chose a park that was pretty basic but in a good location to be able to build some DIY setups which ended up working real well. We gave away a bunch of cash and everyone had a great time. We’re already hyped for the next one!
We’ve teamed up with LUX to put on something special. $1,000 prize pool at the Archerfield Park in Brisbane. There will be a tonne of DIY setups on the day so make sure you save the date and make the trip out.
The park is located at Achievement Crescent, Acacia Ridge QLD.
Baco A Go-Go is on again on the 30th September. We’ve got behind the event once again & a few of the team guys are headed there too. Expect to see Bobbie Altiser & Paddy Gross repping front brakes for us. This is the last one that will be held at that park so make sure you get along for the fun times.
Although the weather haltered the semi finals yesterday, Alex, Dean and Jayden all got their runs in before the rain and they all did some clean riding. We don’t have results yet due to the rest of the semi’s being run on Sunday but make sure you get down to Manly on Sunday for a good time or if you can’t make it out then you can watch the live stream here.
Yesterday was amazing out at Manly, north of Sydney for the Vans Pro Cup. Shoutout to Vans for putting on such an amazing event. Looking forward to the week ahead. A few images below from the first of many FP photo dumps. More here.
We have 2 jams coming up very soon if you’re in Brisbane…
We’ve teamed up with LUX for a jam at Kuraby park on Sunday afternoon along with a session at The Village on Wednesday evening. A bunch of the team will be rolling so make sure you come out for some fun and giveaways.
