Costa Mesa, CALIF (July 31, 2018) – The Vans BMX Pro Cup Series returns to the Vans US Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach, CA this week for the series’ second, highly-anticipated Pro Tour event of the 2018 season on August 3 & 5. Vans BMX Pro Cup veterans Larry Edgar, Sergio Layos and 2017 event winners Dennis Enarson and Hannah Roberts, will look to seize the lead against the series’ top-advancing riders Alex Hiam and Teresa Azcoaga during this weeks’ exhilarating BMX park terrain competition.
