Last weekend was a real banger, as some of the world's most impressive street BMX riders and skateboarders along with up-and-coming local talents gathered in the sunny and burning hot Riga, capital of Latvia, for the Simple Summer Session 18 contest. For the first time ever, the summertime event by the Simple Session series took place in Riga's brand new Barona skatepark, providing the event with the very first full concrete contest course in the history of Simple Session. The all-street event was dedicated to the 100th birthday of Estonia.
A total of 39 BMX riders and 31 skaters from 19 countries competed in the Saturday's qualifications, with 12 top qualifiers from both disciplines following through to the Finals on Sunday.
Doing it for Team Gary Young, the young savages that are Travis Hughes and Boyd Hilder take over the Source BMX plaza for a strict 1-hour session as part of the Source BMX "Battle of Hastings". Scooping up 3rd place in the process!!! Flip to pegs!?? Riders: Boyd Hilder | Travis Hughes
Take a hilarious look back at the making of the Travis Hughes Welcome to Kink Pro Part! Darryl has put together a raw timeline of Travis blowing minds on and off the bike. The amount of times we say "wow" in this, says enough. Enjoy!
