The 2018 Vans BMX Pro Cup World Championships celebrated a monumental finish as the series crowned Larry Edgar andTeresa Azcoaga the 2018 world champions of BMX park terrain in Málaga, Spain, earlier today. Defending Vans BMX Pro Cup World Champion Larry Edgar demonstrated some of the best BMX riding the world has ever seen with colossal airs and technical tricks to earn back-to-back Pro Cup World Championship title wins. Spanish nativeTeresa Azcoaga upheld her series lead to earn the first-ever women’s BMX park terrain championship title, cementing a historic moment for the BMX community.

Edgar remarked with pride, “The level of riding across all stops this year has been incredible, so to be the overall winner is truly special.”

In the main event finals, 2017 Vans Pro Cup Málaga event winner Chase Hawk prevailed yet again with steadfast bike control throughout Rubén Alcántara’s park to take home his second Málaga victory. Dennis Enarson tracked close behind, putting down a huge tail whip transfer into the vert wall to secure a second-place finish, in addition to taking the Best Trick award. In third place, Corey Walsh showcased ingenuity, unlocking some of the course’s most unique lines paired with enormous back-to-back transfers to earn the Best Line award.

Pro Cup newcomer Lara Lessman maintained her semi-finals momentum, surpassing the stacked field with advanced tricks and big airs to place third.
