Vans, the original action sports brand and advocate for creative expression, is proud to welcome adaptive BMX rider Julian Molina to the Vans BMX team. Hailing from Andres, Colombia, Julian has been inspiring the world through BMX for years. At age 7, while riding a skateboard, Julian was hit by a bus sustaining a severe break to his leg.

This years’ event will be more exclusive as the tickets are limited and the venue will be more intimate and closer to the public than ever – the Simple Session series will host an exciting street contest in the hip up and coming Põhjala district – an old rubber factory turned into a cultural hub. Simple Session 21 will also be one of the first significant international events after the big Olympic debut for BMX and skateboarding in Tokyo. Sixty-four of the finest invited BMX street riders and skateboarders from all around the world will go head to head on a new 600m2 Nate Wessel-designed street course.
“I’m delighted that we can run the event at the youthful and vibrant Põhjala factory, make the Session during Estonian summertime and the riders and viewers will enjoy these sports as they were born. The global health crisis has prevented us from hosting the annual wintertime event, so we are happy now to host the Simple Session during the sunny side of the year,” says Risto Kalmre, the founder of Estonia’s biggest and world-renowned action sports event.
The event kicks off on the day of the Estonian Restoration of Independence on the 20th of August,
