On a related note, check out the recent By The Numbers Q&A we did with Risto, who is behind the Simple art.

For this years Simple Session, we were able to get our friend Vincent Perraud out there to cover the whole thing for us. We’re fans of Vince around here and I knew he would come back with great photos, which he did (and delivered in a super timely manner). I fucking love this gallery; it captures the atmosphere, the people, the scene and the riding perfectly. Dude even got into the rafters.

Cheers to Vincent, Risto and the Simple Session crew.

Oakley / Josh Harrington

In this short film documenting Oakley’s Josh Harrington’s trip to the seemingly cold and desolate Northern European state of Estonia for the Simpel Session contest, we experience in his own words the solidarity of self-awareness of traveling to a foreign country, unable to adjust to your surroundings while still having to focus on putting himself in the mindset of riding in front of thousands of people on a BMX bike.

Hoang Tran / Estonia

Hoang Tran refers to Estonia as an “awesome arctic tundra of a city”. He was kind enough to hook us up with some of the photos he took while checking the place out during his Simpel Session trip.

Vincent Perraud came through with an awesome Simpel Session Photogallery. As far as contest photos go, these are awesome.

Simpel Sessions 2010


Simpel Sessions is going down again this year in Talin, Estonia on February 5-7th. Nuno and I got to go to this contest in 2008 and I was definitely one of the best events I’ve been to. The course is always amazing, the rider list is stacked, and the energy in the crowd is crazy. Keep reading to get all the info and to watch their great 2010 trailer.
