Following the Junior and Amateur categories, the Women of BMX Freestyle Park announced an unprecedented line up for a FISE Xperience Series stage. First step since its launch to welcome such an international contest, its challenge of collecting points in the UCI world ranking by a C1 label has offered the Rémois runs from Argentina, Venezuela, Spain and RCF. If this enthusiasm has reinforced the level of the contest, it needed more to destabilize the French champion Laury Perez who get the victory today.
These performances warmed up the spectators who were at the height of their involvement during the launch of the BMX Freestyle Park Pro final. First in qualifying the day before, the young Brazilian

Simple Session 2022 is on! The day kicked off with sanctioned BMX street jam at a legendary spot in Tallinn – the stairs of Viru Keskus next to the Hämarik statue, followed by a skate street jam later the day. For the first time in history, there was rail, ledge and euro-cap in this location built specially for this event.
BMX street jam winners: -Killian Roth took the win on the ledge spot with a picture perfect 180 to smith to fullcab down a very steep ledge.
After five days of festival, running through the village, excitement on all floors, the sound system stops almost as suddenly as a fly falling in the soup; the voice of the last living MC has just invited us to come back next year. So that's it, is it over? It's going to be hard to get back to normal given what just happened. Anthony Jeanjean was 15 seconds from a historical victory. After years of work, risk, focus on every aspect, incredible progress and here is the fan favorite to compete with the best. Who would've believed that? Himself obviously, and his trainer Guimez also to whom we must recognize the influence in the management of the young man competition. So this report of the UCI BMX Freestyle Park final begins with the ultimate spoiler to look back quicker to an historic finaly.
It was an intense day on the Street Course for the BMX riders today as they had qualifications and finals to contend with. Over 70 riders entered the qualification contest to compete for one of the 12 places in the afternoon final. The format for the finals was 2 heats of 6 riders, each rider had 2 runs of 50 seconds and it was the best run that counted. The performance of each rider was judged on overall impression including, but not limited to, variety of tricks and lines, execution, difficulty, versatility, originality, flow, style, bike control and landing.
All the riders were so impressive and the standard was really high as they all cheered each other on. In the end it was the man from Madrid Mr Courage Adams who was awarded the top prize scoring
There are not a thousand solutions to beat the heat wave which still blushes the shoulders of FISE today. You can use water; it was done to clean the flat surface that serves as a stage for the extraordinary BMX flat riders. We can also look for this little wind coming from the sea. The air conditioning was started beforehand by the women final won by Julia Preuss. Then it was a real squall from Japan that froze all local hopes of seeing Matthias Dandois (6th) achieve the miracle of winning a new FISE despite a sore foot. The Frenchman is not having a great day and a few errors penalize some of his best sequences. Same disappointment for Viki Gomez (8th) and his titanium bike of only 7 kilos. Too bad also for the Thailand rider “Toon” who is a treat to see riding but who does not land the very end of a sequence of more than one minute.
