2004 marks the year Simple Session decided to jump out of its diapers and become the event we know it as today. Now titled Simpel Session 04: Winter Bash!, the competition moved to the capital city and a new indoor location at Saku Suurhall allowed the event to be a wintertime jam, which meant more pro riders and skaters could join the party instead of trying to fit it in their already busy summer schedules.
This turned out to be an amazingly wise move because bigger names such as Alistair Whitton, Sebastian Keep, Dave Osato, Tobias Wicke, Jocke Olsson, Barry Kohne, Chris Aström and many more showed up to please the local crowds. Unfortunately, the time schedule got tighter, which meant having to cut out BMX flatland and inline skating. This was also the year Red Bull teamed up with Simple Session and a special competition course was built for the first time.
Special shout-out to FATBMX’s Bart De Jong, who announced the competition and has been a regular to the contest ever since. He’s been announcing, judging, doing coverage and has lately been in the role of the head judge.
The first legendary afterparty was held at @VonKrahlibaar and good times were had all around.
