Simple Session 2018: BMX Street & Park Highlights. Alle Jahre wieder werden auf der Simple Session in Estland am laufenden Band die heftigsten Banger rausgehauen. Das war auch 2018 nicht anders. Hier sind die Park- und Streethighlights aus der Saku Suurhall, featuring Garrett Reynolds, Larry Edgar, Bruno Hoffmann, Kevin Peraza, Simone Barraco und viele mehr.
Wethepeople PRO's Ed Zunda, Dillon Lloyd, Dan Kruk and Jordan Godwin took a quick shop stop into the Midwest. Thanks to QBP for making this happen and Albes, House of Bicycles, Lets Roast, Mud Slingers & Zion Cyclery for the hospitality.
Yumi Tsukuda’s unique approach to modern-day street riding first caught our eye via Instagram, earning the then 19-year-old a spot on our International Flow Team in March of 2017. In January of this year, he booked himself a ticket from Tokyo to Long Beach to meet the team and ride for a month. Yumi instantly vibed with the crew, and his style, creativity and motivation paired with his awesome attitude, led the team to a unanimous decision to put him on PRO before he went home to Japan.
Van Homan and Brian Kachinsky kicked off their "Uncovered BMX" AM series last month with extreme success! Here they explain in detail how this new contest series came to be, why it's an AM event, what their motivations are, and how this series will lead to one overall winner getting an all expenses paid trip to this year's Battle Of Hastings!
After my run, I decided to film the rest of qualifications and it was absolutely insane! Watch everyone tear it up, and just want to give a huge congratulations to Garrett Reynolds, Bruno Hoffman, & Broc Raiford for taking the podium. Thank you simple session and visit Estonia for an amazing trip! I'm back in the states now, this video was supposed to drop yesterday however Russia's airport sucks and so does the wifi.
I don't mean this in any sort of bad way, but someone just called these events as a "double best trick event" and there's really no better way to describe it. It's not a trail event. It's not about style per-say. It's about laying down your two best tricks and rolling away clean and alive (no, the quarter doesn't count). The second stop of the Toyota Triple Challenge (triple because there's three events) was the absolute highest level of riding I've seen at basically any event and I'm sure there's more to come with the final stop going down in Arlington, Texas on 2/17...
Here is a good look at the Simple Session 2018 course. Billy Perry and myself were fortunate enough to have some time on the course to ourselves. Trying to film during practice was almost impossible and deadly with all of the riders going non stop. Huge shout out to Risto and all of the staff for being awesome. New video drops tomorrow at 3pm EST as I travel back to the states. Make sure to checkout the video Billy will be posting as well!
Simple session practice day 1 & 2 was insane! Sorry for the lack of uploads, we've been going non stop out here since Simple Session started. I haven't had the time to sit down and edit so I'm a bit set back. Enjoy this video and get a good look at what to expect in finals. Also we visited the "Spot of Tallinn skatepark" which was dope!
