Do you remember the first BMX event you went to this year and how did it go?
Marin Ranteš: Simple Session was my first competition this year. I was really happy to be there because it was hard to get there for me. On the first practice before prequalification I almost broke my ankle. It got huge and colorful but this didn’t stop me. I rode pre-qualification and transfered in 1st place to the normal qualifications. Didn’t sleep for next 3vnights, I was putting ice all day and all night
Since Simple Session has split up their comps in a Park and Street contest there are actually two BMX contests to look forward to. The international Park riders list is promising with current and former X-Games gold medalists, the Vans Pro Cup winner, legends and talents all coming together in Tallinn, Estonia during the first big contest of the year. The event will be broadcasted live so no worries if you can't make it yourself but be sure you're missing out on a loose party weekend if you decide to stay home. The riding will be off the hook with this riders list on the Nate Wessel designed course. 3-5 February 2018. Saku Suurhal, Tallinn, Estonia.
