Want to see how Tom Dugan won the Big Air contest at the Van Doren Invitational last weekend after taking one hell of a slam from 20 feet up? Check out this highlights video from Ride BMX. What we want to know is where the hell Larry Edgar went for this contest? He was blasting higher than anyone all weekend long, but didn’t ride the highest air contest. So weird.

“Highlights from finals at the Vans US Open Van Doren Invitational… From boost, to style, to tech, it’s all here. Congrats to Dennis Enarson, Gary Young, and Daniel Sandoval who took 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, respectively.” – Ride BMX
Want to see how Dennis Enarson won the 2015 Van Doren Invitational? Well, here’s a few highlights from his runs during the finals that earned him that top spot! Definitely a ton of crazy riding, as expected, from Dennis that was a well deserving win. That manual to fast plant 180 into the bowl is so wild.

This is one of those videos that will suck you right on in! Not a lot of people get to experience the super serious, high intensity moments of the deck, but Ryan Fudger at Ride BMX pulled out the camera to show you just how things go down at the Van Doren Invitational. This is clearly a no fun zone. Take a look!
“Unpredictably to me at the time, the Bullshittin’ At X Games video I made was rather enjoyable. So much so, that I had several request for a follow up at the Dew Tour. It didn’t happen. Blame the one-man-show. But, for the Van Doren Invitational, I had Zach and Justin holding down the videos, so I wandered around and pointed the camera in basically everyone’s face. And, how I described the X Games video still subscribes to the $35,000 purse available at the Van Doren Invitational: “But, all the money and all the pressure aside, there’s still this portion of it that is really just jokes. Bullshit, really. All the random shit talk, the playing around, all the stuff that makes BMX fun for a lot of these dudes that are the best of the world still exists in a lot of ways, and I hope this video shows that it’s still mostly laughs…””
Yesterday was the first official day of the Van Doren Invitational and some of the best BMX riders took to the course to throw down to try and secure a spot into the finals! Check out this video from qualifying featuring Dennis Enarson, Dean Cueson, Alex Hiam, Daniel Sandoval, Kevin Peraza, Larry Edgar, Kris Fox, Tom Dugan, Maxime Charveron and many more all putting in work! Looks like it was non-stop bangers all day long!
“Day three at the Van Doren Invitational came with more comfort from the riders… Higher airs, lines already figured out, and more tricks added into said lines. 3 heats of 10 riders battled it out to qualify for finals, and 15 made it.” – Ride BMX
When you have a course like the bowl for the Van Doren Invitational packed with riders like Dennis Enarson, Daniel Sandoval, Chase Hawk, Gary Young, Matt Roe, Kris Fox, Kevin Peraza, Dean Cueson, Greg Illingworth, Scotty Cranmer, Clint Reynolds, Pat Casey, Trey Jones and more, amazing things are going to go down! Check out highlights from day two of practice in the video above. If this is what we’re seeing in practice… Just imagine how insane the actual contest will be?!
“Day two of the Van Doren Invitational quickly proceeded to get even crazier than the first, the riders were more than familiar with the ramp and ready to hit the boost button! You can’t watch this contest and not be hyped, Clint Reynolds could be roasting out of the bowls deep end one moment and the next Daniel Sandoval might be laying down a flair crazy variation. The variety in riding styles is going to make for one hell of a qualifying round tomorrow!” – Ride BMX
