SIMPLE SESSION is a week full of amazing BMX and skateboarding at the most talked about event in the action sports calender, kicking off on 5-6th of February in European Capital of Culture Tallinn 2011. Having started out as just a local jam, Simpel Session has worked its way up to become one of the biggest and best contests in the world of BMX bikes and skateboarding. And not because of the massive media coverage or hefty prize purse, but more for its ability of attracting the biggest names in the business, a mind-blowingly impressive new course each year, and the laid-back vibe with a feeling of a giant BMX and skateboard party. Simpel Session is a celebration of everything that is amazing about BMX and skateboarding.

Simpel Session 11 is one of the most anticipated international highlight events of European Capital of Culture Tallinn 2011 program. This means there will be several side events to the festival this year, such as film screenings and photography exhibitions.
