Simple Session 2020 In Photos
The 20th Anniversary Edition...
Words & Photos by: Wes McGrath
Twenty years and running. Simple Session has been keeping the party going with 20 years of show time and it seems to only be gaining momentum. Beginning in the 2000, this contest has seen so much change and has withstood two decades of the ever-changing BMX landscape, hosting the world's top riders and craziest personalities, making Simple Session one of the best destination contests happening every year. Despite the occasional speed bumps along the way such as, lost luggage, lack of sleep, hangovers and even the occasional relationship status change, this event tucked away in the tiny Estonian town of Tallinn, keeps the riders and the fans coming back for more, even in the dead of winter!
Wether you are in the crowd, on the course or watching at home, Simple Session has a firm grip within the BMX world and it has given so many riders an opportunity to shine in so many ways... After only being apart of this contest for three years, I can easily see the strength within the family of our BMX community, keeping it all together! The friends, parties, travels and memories cast are only by-products of what happens when efforts are recognized and supported with hard work... on and off the bike, on the course and behind the scenes!
Simple Session 2020 was another amazing event and with the Saku Arena was sold out for finals, Felix Prangenberg took home the 1st place trophy in street for the second year in a row. Rim Nakamura won 1st place in Park on his 18th birthday and the return of Sister Session took place to showcase women's BMX; Nikita Ducarroz, Minato Oike and Lara Lessman took the top 3 podium spots.
