Vans BMX would like to welcome Australian ripper, Alex Hiam, to the Vans Global Team. Alex has been on the Vans flow program for 10 years now and the amount of tech Alex has on lock has always been mind-blowing and he’s just beginning! Welcome, Alex.
After Malaga Vans bowl contest Alex Hiam spent some time in Barcelona chilling with his girlfriend but also spent four days cruising with John Young hitting whatever was in front of them and they came out at the end with a really nice video.
Go to Australia they said, it’s always warm and sunny they said... Warm indeed, riders were on fire for the qualification but rain stopped the event before the end. Even if we don’t know all the qualifiers, Alex Hiam, local from Australia, thanks to his temporary 3rd place is sure to make it to the final. We took advantage of this time off to ask him a couple of questions about this very first edition of the Vans BMX pro cup.
So tell me Alex, you are Australian, one of the guests of the first international BMX event in Australia, and no matter what, you are qualified for the final. How does it feel? Alex Hiam: Unbelievable. I used to fly to attend this kind of event. Plus I’m riding with other riders I used to watch, like Sergio Layos, Ryan Nyquist…
