This year's Simple Session track being built.
An 800-square-meter track and two-day competitions await at Põhjala factory in Tallinn, where spectators can enjoy the skills of around 100 top class skaters and BMX riders on September 23 and 24. The track, which was designed by Nate Wessel, will offer unique features not usually found in local skateparks.
After the main skating and BMX event, enthusiasts are welcome on the Simple Session track. In addition, on September 25, a “GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS” skating workshop will be held at KÄT Studio.
“This year, the list of participants is exceptionally tough. Simple Session has been one of the world’s biggest skateboarding and BMX sports events for years. It is a great pleasure to welcome so many top competitors. A women’s street BMX competition will also be organised as a new category”, said Risto Kalmre, one of the event organisers.
Simple Session’s side program includes jams on three nights at Skoone Bastion, Freedom Square and elsewhere in Tallinn, as well as fast-paced evening parties and concerts for four days straight.
