Vans welcomes Perris Benegas to Pro!

Welcome to the Vans family, @PerrisBenegas. Named as @TheBloomBMX 2020 Freestyle Rider of the Year, as well as earning top honors at Vans 2019 BMX Pro Cup stops in Germany and Huntington Beach, California, Perris most recently received a signature pro frame from @CultCrew, marking a milestone for female BMX riders everywhere.” -Vans BMX Instagram

“I’m speechless and honored to be put on Vans Global. They’ve always had the opportunity to pick the best of the best, and now being part of this exclusive team. I just don’t know what to say. I’m humbled and so excited!!”  -Perris Benegas

“Getting Perris on Pro has been a goal for the past couple of years, we have helped Perris get to the Pro Cup’s in 2018 and 2019 and have provided footwear and apparel along the way. Perris’ 2019 year was a big one, seeing some of the runs at Pro Cup were incredible especially the one in Germany which was a very memorable one to me. Perris threw on pegs and won the 2019 Rebel Jam at the US Open, proving hard to beat at any event she entered. Perris rides with so much power, there’s no coasting off the lip, it’s pumping the lip and taking everything you can get off it and flying through the air. Perris also rides with confidence and commitment.

I just spent the past few days with Perris getting to know her more personally and I’m really excited to turn up her relationship with Vans. We all know Perris rules, and that this is a well-deserved bump to pro.”
