Baltic Triangle Tour Flipbook

View Gallery

The plan for the latest Sunday adventure was to have Gary Young and Alex Magallan venture around the Baltic Sea after the Simpel Summer Session contest while Andrew Brady films and I act as a tour guide, second camera angle and a third rider.  This idea seemed flawless until Alex Magallan broke his arm a week before the trip.  With Alex out, Gary was going to have to make up for it and to no one’s surpirse he did just that.

The tour takes us from Helsinki, Finland to Tallinn, Estonia then overnight to Stockholm, Sweden and finally back to Helsinki.  If you’ve never been to this part of the world then do yourself a favor and go.  These photos are shot by Gary Young and Andrew Brady.

The Baltic Triange Tour video from the trip will be on the site at 11 am EST time this coming Friday, but if you like our Facebook page then you can watch it right now by clicking HERE.

We made it to Estonia!

Well after an amazing time at Simpel Summer Session, we used today as a day of rest and travel.  We just arrived in Tallinn, Estonia after taking the ferry ride across the Baltic Sea. Traveling by ferry is one of the coolest ways to go if you ask me.  Gary Young, Andrew Brady and myself will be here for a few days before we head over to Stockholm, Sweden later in the week.  We will be hitting up Mystic BMX sometime tomorrow.

If you didn’t know, Gary Young won Simpel Summer Session.  Check out this photo of him being carried to the podium.

Gary Young wins summer Simpel Session!

Gary Young took the win at yesterday’s summer Simpel Session (AKA Stadi Session) in Helsinki, Finland.  In usually Gary Young form, he blazed his way around the course firing out all sorts of jumping variations, doing gaps to rails and finding lines that no one else could.  All of this is done at high speeds.  Big congrats Gary!  It was a pleasure to watch!

Sunday at Summer Simpel

Sunday is heading to Helsinki this week to hit up the summer Simpel Session contest on August 20th.  I guess it’s called Stadi Session during the summer. Gary Young, Aaron Ross and Jim Cielencki will be there.  Alex Magallan had to pull out due to his broken arm suffered this weekend.  Some of us will be staying in the area for a bunch of days afterwards, so be on the lookout. We might even make it to Tallinn and Stockholm.  Can’t wait!


Simpel Session 2009


Yes, its that time of year to make it out to wonderful Tallinn, Estonia for Simpel Session.  This is one of the nicests cities that I’ve been, but unfortunately I couldn’t make it this year due to injury.  Aaron Ross is there, so be on the look out.  I’m not sure if he has anything planned, but if I know him he will come up with something wild.  Go over to their website to view the event live as it happens this weekend.  Or you could just go right here!  This is one of the best events going in BMX, so you will not want to miss it!
