On 20th of August, tens of thousands of passing spectators on Helsinki main square witnessed the second Stadi Summer Session, summertime edition of Simple Session, going down to the history books as the biggest BMX contest ever thrown in Finland. The open-air contest brought together 67 top riders from 20 countries, with Gary Young (USA) stealing the show, Alex Coleborn (UK) coming second and Daniel Tünte (GER) taking the third place.
The event was a big success - the line-up was better than ever before at the Simple Session's summer contests, the weather was great despite the worrisome forecasts, and the course was constantly surrounded by a cheering crowd. With BMX legends Darryl Nau, Andy Zeiss and Tommidmg as announcers, the whole Helsinki main square was filled with energy, firing up one of the most amazing and inspiring Simple Session contests so far.
