Simple Session 14 - Day One
Celebrating BMX and Skate in Tallinn, Estonia.
Now in its 14th year, Simple Session, held in Tallinn, Estonia, has become one of the biggest Skate and BMX events on the planet. Based on the simple premise that it is a celebration of both BMX and Skate, it has developed into one of the purest forms of competitions within the two sports.
With over 180 riders, the format goes with four man jam sessions to get through the qualifiers, the semi finals and then a final. Riders do not go head to head in heats, but just try to nail a run which will score them enough points to put themselves in the top 25 overall for BMX and the top 31 in Skate to progress. The format allows for progression and total freedom of creativity and not just trying to get by the guys you're up against.
