"I came to Estonia with my dad to run the Tallinn Marathon. It was awesome showing him Estonia, a place I had been many times. He loved it and is a huge fan of the history. We wandered around old town, went to many museums and visited Naissaar Island. We had a great week in Estonia and he still talks about it often." Brian Kachinsky, 33, from USA, has been to Simple Session 7 years.
For the first time in the history of Simple Session, we're also having BMX street and park riding as separate judging categories and this will definitely make the competition element more up-to date. Also the BMX contest format in the Finals has changed creating a lot more competition element and is more exciting to follow for the audience in the same time still keeping it relaxed enough for the riders, so they can throw down tricks no one has ever seen before in competition.
