At the Simple Session 16 event Daniel Dhers and Nick Bruce won the special 'Visit Estonia' prize for the best tricks performed on the 'Visit Estonia' Estonian flag quarterpipe. The prize was a full on week long adventure trip around Estonia with tasty local cuisine, fancy hotels and spas, helicopter rides, escape room and disc golf, underground mine visits, off-road jeep rides and of course shredding at Nate Wessel designed and 'Visit Estonia' funded Spot of Tallinn action sport complex. So the adventure was on, the guys flew over to Estonia this November and they had a blast! Here Daniel and Nick are checking in midway on the trip and telling you what's up.
On Saturday, December 10th at 9:00 am, the Daniel Dhers Action Sports Complex located in Holly Springs NC, will be hosting the 1st BMX COMPLEX AM: a competition for Beginner, Amateur and Advanced riders from all over the world.
Pro BMX rider Daniel Dhers, five times X Games gold medalist and owner of the Action Sports Complex, explained the event has been created with the goal of giving the new generations the experience of a pro level competition and to give them a path to pursue a professional career, “I have been competing for over 10 years, I know the impact it can have in your life. Without many amateur events in the country I want to give the opportunity to the up and comers to show and measure their skill level”.
Dhers also selected well known judges in the BMX community such as Mike Laird, Mark Losey and Leigh Ramsdell: “I would like to implement a new scoring system, our current one hasn’t changed since the early 90’s and it’s time to adapt to the new era of BMX Park riding and competition”. The event will also be covered by Bare Essentials Sports Medicine to provide top care for the riders.
