SUMMER VERSION OF SIMPEL SESSION!
STADI SUMMER SESSION
Time: Saturday 20th of August 2011
Place: Narinkkatori/Kamppi, Helsinki Finland
Prepare for awesome nordic BMX this summer, as Simpel Summer Session returns to Stadi — Helsinki for the second time!
Unlike our Tallinn events in February, the Summer Session is an outdoor event, so expect warm sunny weather, breezy hang-outs in the greenery and a lot of spontaneous street riding on the great streets of Helsinki.
Summer Session will take place in an exciting location in the very heart of Helsinki— on it’s main square – the Narinkkatori in front of Kamppi center.
The brand new course is designed by legendary Nate Wessel, the drawing will be published next week. It’s going to be a great mix from park and street.
Of course there is a wild party in the program and everything else that has become expected from the good times of Simpel Session events.
A country of 200 000 lakes and great street spots to inspire the emergence of around 50 000 skaters across the country, Finland adds up to the ultimate destination for a wild nature get-away mixed with a taste of the best Nordic urban landscapes.
Helsinki — or Stadi, as the locals call their capital — has been referred to as the “pocket-size metropolis”, and it truly does live up to its high rep, as it was recently voted as ‘World’s Most Liveable City” by influential Monocle magazine.
With the young vibe, liberating atmosphere and bicycle friendliness, Helsinki is always happening, attracting creative minds and fun-lovers alike.
It feels great to roll around, surrounded by the impressive modern architecture, and nearly half a millennium of history, with sea breeze following you trough the streets.
Helsinki is on the roll – the city’s culture is thriving! Let’s get on with BMX in Helsinki with full force!
