Kevin Peraza Takes Semis Lead Advantage into the Vans BMX Pro Cup Huntington Beach Pro Tour Finals

Vans BMX Pro Cup, the world’s leading platform for elite BMX park terrain competition, turned up the heat today in Huntington Beach, CA for the second Pro Tour stop of the 2018 season at the Vans US Open of Surfing.

Despite a minor injury in practice, tour veteran Kevin Peraza surpassed 30 of the world’s leading BMX riders during a heated semi-finals round to qualify in first, merging his expert street skills with his solid park riding style.

Local hero Kris Fox’s high-speed riding and lasting ambition for a place on the podium earned him second place, while 2016 Van Doren BMX Invitational event winner Matt Cordova’s enormous airs and unique transfers secured a third place finish.

The top ten riders from today’s semi-finals will join the current series point leaders this Sunday, August 5 for the Vans BMX Pro Cup Huntington Beach Pro Tour finals event.
