Kevin Peraza Wins Best Trick Event with Never-Been-Done 180 Backflip Tailwhip over a spine.

MEXICO CITY, Mexico – August 19, 2019 – The level of BMX progression is off the charts right now and riders are pushing the boundaries. Monster Energy congratulates Larry Edgar on taking third place at the third stop of the Vans BMX Pro Cup series in Mexico City this weekend. In front of a capacity crowd at the Skatepark Metro Puebla 2, the 26-year-old from Corona, California, earned his podium spot despite a knee injury in a highly contested finals featuring the world’s best BMX park riders.

The highlight of the weekend was Kevin Peraza, who took first place in the progression-driven Best Trick event. In an open session that had the high-energy crowd on its feet, the 24-year-old from Tucson, Arizona, pulled a never-been-done 180 Backflip Tailwhip over the park’s spine ramp to take the top spot. Kevin Peraza came into the Best Trick jam to battle a never-been-done move (also known as an ‘NBD’) that’s in a league of its own. At the previous Vans BMX Pro Cup stop in Stuttgart, Germany, Peraza already bagged first place in Best Trick with a backflip 180 over the spine. Taking it to the next level, he threw a tailwhip into the move during the BMX Park Best Trick event at X Games Minneapolis 2019 – but couldn’t ride it out before the buzzer.

Now in its third season, the Vans BMX Pro Cup series is the world’s leading platform for elite BMX park terrain competition. This year’s series kicked off in April in Sydney, Australia, followed by a successful event in Stuttgart, Germany, in June. As the penultimate event on the roster, the Mexico tour stop provided a final chance to collect tour ranking points before the 2019 BMX World Championships go down in Huntington Beach, California, this September.

Now it was on. All the stars aligned in Mexico City and Peraza pulled his Flairwhip over the spine on his first try. Unreal. History was made and the crowd lost its mind. Also adding to the stoke, Kevin’s Monster teammate Pat Casey landed an equally insane 540 tailwhip to fakie over the 14-foot box to give judges a tough time deciding on a winner. In the end, it was Peraza who took top honors with his never-been-done trick that raised the bar for BMX progression another crucial notches.
