“Closing out the opening weekend of the Vans US Open with crowds ablaze, the first-ever Vans Rebel Jam BMX street competition held on American soil concluded its final rounds, awarding decorated BMX riders Dennis Enarson and Perris Benegas as the event’s overall winners. Showcasing 18 of the world’s best street riders in the finals, the Vans Rebel Jam also recognizes originality and innovation with individual rider awards ranging from most creative, hard trick, and best overall style. The 2019 Vans Rebel Jam is unique in all of the industry for championing prize parity for competitors and matching podium winnings for men and women.
In the Men’s division, all-terrain BMX specialist Dennis Enarson conquered the street course with ease, utilizing speed and power to demonstrate expert bike control, and land difficult maneuvers and unexpected lines. Commanding the lead in prelims, it’s no surprise Enarson prevailed in the finals.
“Thank you to all the Huntington Beach locals, and everyone who came out to the event. Thank you for supporting BMX. This event was so fun and the hype was real.”- Dennis Enarson, Vans Rebel Jam Men’s Winner
Joining Enarson on the podium is the ever-diverse Boyd Hilder in 2nd, landing huge airs and backflips to please the crowds, while Garrett Reynolds’ clean consistency and technical style earned him 3rd.

In the women’s division, Perris Benegas was the field outlier, impressing the judges with big airs, clean feeble grinds, and connecting runs like a pro.
