Simple Session 12 wrap up


Tallin, Estonia has become host for one of the biggest park contest's of the year. Simple Session 12 wrapped up this past weekend with 111 entrant's competing and after nine hour's of Prelim's Saturday the top 24 moved onto Sundays final.

Vans had eight riders make the final's and unfortunately a couple of injuries along the way. Josh Harrington was having a great weekend up until final trick's where he tried to over ice a back rail off a really tall wedge. Josh and his long leg's just couldn't run out of the fall and he buckled his knee. Josh will get it looked at when he returns home today.

Gary Young qualified in 5th position and looked for a podium spot in the finals with creative lines, switch 3's and fast pace. Gary went for a huge 270 transfer and his bike smashed his head into the ground and left Gary old cold on the cement floor. Gary walked from the course and went for further treatment at the local Hospital, but was cleared to fly home today.

Pat Casey and Daniel Sandoval, the two rookies on the Vans team, finished 5th and 4th respectively. Both these kid's have a few new trick's every contest it's exciting to see. Pat revealed a flip barspin to tailwhip, and a front flip flair. Daniel is a fire cracker to watch, you know he's going to send something outrageous. At this event he debuted a front flip barspin.

A tough final for the legend's on the Vans team, but a solid one for the rookies.

If you ever want to go to a contest Simple Session has to be on your list, it's the rider's from all over the world, the late night parties the quality ramps with a mix of street incorporated keeps everybody happy. See you in 2013!
