A good contest involves some good parties but there is some awesome riding going on here in Tallinn too. What would you expect if you get 72 pre-qualified riders on a Nate Wessell designed course? The atmosphere is great. Riders are being treated well, we've got Catfish on the microphone and for the finals the place is sold out. We'll run some photos of Friday's practice here and will get into the qualifying day in a little while. Enjoy the show.
Today was qualifying with the finals being planned for tomorrow. It was a crazy time with lots of unique and crazy tricks which we'll report on at some stage. For now we'll give you a party image, shot at the Kumu museum. I swear that Dave Mirra is in that photo somewhere. As usual we ended up in Hollywood which is only a short cab ride away. More tonight, I guess.
With super wireless internet connection over here in Estonia it's possible to keep on working. Somewhere in the city Dean Hearne is doing the same thing and he just finished adding a Corey Martinez blog to the United website. You can follow what Corey is up to, where he's going, who he's filming with and what he thinks of Estonia. Mike Ardelean's blog should be up some time next week if Dean can find some wireless connection while on the road. Watch the vids and pics on the United Bike Co website. They've got a killer team so expect something good.

It's 4:05 am and we just got back from Bonnie and Clyde which actually is the hotel bar here in Tallinn, Estonia. Damn wasted but we want to keep you informed of what's going on over here. Didn't see too many flips on the contest floor today during practice but saw an amazing performance of Luke Marchant on stage pulling off the flip. Qualifying tomorrow so stay tuned. Watch it live on the internet. Everyone is here it seems like. Go to the Simpel Session website for the link of the live broadcast and don't miss a thing. Sorry, no live party webcams are up...........
Things took of yesterday with people arriving to Tallinn for the Simpel Session. The RIDE UK mini cooper got confiscated at the border, some people missed their flights, some luggage did not show up but the good times at Club Hollywood at night made up for it. Practice is about to start and a lot of riders are eager to shred the Nate Wessel designed course after watching the Facad, Broke Off and Volume video in the cinema. Here's a selection of photos from last night. Don't tell anyone........
This is some serious shit for the web geeks and whoever unlucky person who cannot attend Simpel Session contest in person. We're excited to announce that the whole event will be video-broad casted LIVE on the internet. This year it's gonna be with full festival sound and graphics (judges scores, names, slow motions and so forth - the full deal as a decent tv broadcast) and as last time it's with great quality! We have 8 cameras and two of them on cranes filming all weekend so everything will be covered.

We're about to take off to Estonia for the Simpel Session and we're not alone. Steve Bancroft, Robin Fenlon and Phil Aller are on their way in a sponsored mini from the UK. That's a hell of a trip but should make up for a good story. Roadtrips rule. Nate Wessel has arrived and started putting things together on the street course which already looks awesome. With the following rider list it should be a crazy event, can't wait. Stay tuned for updates from the Simpel Session here on FATBMX.com.
