Yesterday before the Vans BMX Pro Cup Men’s Final, the ladies took to the course to drop in and throw down! There were 10 riders in the women’s class and they all came out firing. In the end, Hannah Roberts found herself on the top of the podium with Macarena Perez and Nikki Wetzel taking 2nd and 3rd. Hannah has been on fire this past year or so, taking top spots at many of the contests she’s been hitting up! Awesome to see!
“In an exciting women’s competition, 15-year-old Michigan-native Hannah Roberts raised the bar of women’s BMX riding with her charging style and back-to-back trick selection, taking home the women’s Vans BMX Pro Cup first place title. In second, Chile’s Macarena Perez awed the crowd with her huge airs and high-speed lines. Ruling the park with strong riding and a unique fastplant transfer, Las Vegas’ Nikki Wetzel takes the women’s Best Trick award and joins Roberts and Perez on the podium in third.
“Riding with all these girls is amazing. The way that they push each other and stay upbeat is awesome,” an enthusiastic Roberts said. “Their positive energy helped me. I’m stoked about the win and so proud of everybody.”” – Vans
“Women’s BMX has been gaining momentum for years, but this feels like the culmination of a lot of hard work for these ladies. I’m fairly certain that this is the first major event to ever have a paid women’s class in the states and women from around the world came to take part of this historical session in an epic bowl at the Vans BMX Pro Cup.” – Ride BMX
