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.

Press Release: Simpel Session 2011

We’ve been working hard on the Simpel Session 11 course design, together with our main man Nate Wessel. After last February’s big success, it was difficult to imagine how it could get any better. But with this one, it is clear that Nate has really outdone himself. We can’t believe how amazing it’s going to be!

Meanwhile, the BMX riders list is filling up with great names and is looking like the best ever line-up in Simpel Session history.
In skateboarding, we’re also confirming details with many top guys from all over the world, and will announce more athletes in the beginning of January. It’s going to be a real treat too, and there are still many surprises to come!

Simpel Session 11 festival will go down on 5-6th of February 2011 in Tallinn, Estonia, as one of the first highlight events of the Tallinn European Capital of Culture 2011 program. This means the contest will feature several side events this year, beside the infamous party program, such as BMX and skate film screenings and themed photo exhibition, setting off already on the 2nd of February.

Simpel Session 11 tickets will be internationally on sale starting from January 2nd. For more info, go to http://www.session.ee/2011/tickets/?lng=en

The preparations are in full swing, and we are stoked to say the line-up just keeps looking better and better. We have already listed some of our all-time favorite riders and there’s many more to come. In BMX we have the legendary two-time Simpel Session gold medalist Garrett Reynolds, the German rising star Bruno Hoffmann, last years finalist Kevin Kiraly (USA) and bronze medalist Ben Wallace (UK), to name a few. Not to mention all the best Nordic and Baltic BMX street riders that qualified from our Summer Session event in Helsinki. The skate line-up is starting to look neat too – the one and only Canadian pro-skater Chris Haslam has confirmed, as well as our skate champ in 2009, Axel Cruysberghs (BEL), who has healed from his last years accident at SS10 practice, and will be competing this year. There are many surprises to come, so stay tuned and keep an eye on http://www.session.ee/2011/riders

Simpel Session Winner is…

Congrats to Drew Bezanson for taking the top spot at Simpel Session 2010. I knew that when I first saw Drew ride at the Tunnel Jam, that he would be a problem in the future. This dude is definitely good and deserves it.

Congrats to Maddog and Ben Wallace for taking second and third as well.
