which will create new challenges for the riders, making the show even more spectacular for spectators. Fuel TV's David Mavro comments: "The list of riders this year is nuts. Seriously I have not seen a contest with this type of field in a long time. It's clear Simpel Session has grown into THE event, hands down." Truly, this year’s Simpel Session has gathered all-time best line-up and the BMX and skate community coming to Tallinn will be huge.
Freecaster.tv is thrilled to come to Tallinn to broadcast Live. "I'm really excited to start the 2008 Skate and BMX seasons." Says Raymond Dulieu, CEO Freecaster.tv. "Unfortunately I cannot be there personally as I will be covering the Winter X Games, but I'll be one of those watching it live on Freecaster." Freecaster.tv has an important role for sending out the stream on their environment but of course this cannot be done without the Simpel Session broadcast team. It consist more than 25 people and 8 cameras working for the live coverage. Live interviews and judging/scoring system will make the webcast even more exciting.
It's third year when Simpel Session broadcasts the entire contest live on screen and over the internet and the first time to work together with Freecaster.tv. Last year Simpel Session’s live webcast gathered almost the same amount of viewers than the webcast for Estonian Eurovison song contest. It's also possible to watch the event straight from the events website -
Highlights will also be available straight after the event on Freecaster.tv/BMX and Freecaster/sk8 so don't worry too much if the journey to Northern Europe is too far, Freecaster.tv will be there to make sure you don't miss any of the outstanding action from Simpel Session 08. But of course if you have the slightest chance to still book your flight to Tallinn, don't hesitate as this years contest will be an event to remember.
