Hot on the heels of closing a deal to show a global wakeboarding series, action sports streaming specialist FUEL TV is back on land to show BMX and skate event Simple Session.
Boasting 22 years of history, the Simple Session is one of the world's longest-running action sports events and is loved by both fans and athletes alike.

Simple Session has carried the flag of Estonian action sports for over two decades. Over the years, it has hosted most of the world's well-known pro BMX and skateboard athletes and superstars - from Tony Hawk to Sky Brown to Ryan Sheckler to Dave Mirra and Daniel Dhers – as well as hundreds of other action sports VIPs and up-and-coming athletes.

On June 12, with the skate and BMX Finals, the main event will be airing Live on FUEL TV, the global home of action sports on television. Simple Session sees partnering up with FUEL TV as is taking the event further with global distribution, reaching around 700million devices.

“Having first done TV shows for FUEL TV already in 2014, It’s a pleasure to continue our partnership, broadcasting the contest live to devices all over the world,” said Simple Session co-founder Risto Kalmre commenting on the deal.

Simple Session 22 is going to be an absolute treat as we are delighted to host the cream de la cream of BMX and our past winners Kevin Peraza, Boyd Hilder, Broc Raiford, Garrett Reynolds, and many other heavy hitters. In Skateboarding, the line-up is equally stacked with last year's winner Ivan Monteiro, X Games champions Ivan Federico and Liam Pace, and tons of other skate superstars going head-to-head on our brand new magnificent all-terrain course in an old factory of North-Tallinn.

"Going live with one of the most celebrated and prominent BMX and skate event brands worldwide will be spectacular to watch," added FUEL TV chief strategy officer Inês D'Alte. "To showcase the 30 world's best BMX all-terrain riders and skateboarders to our viewers, it's a privilege for us. In a time where live broadcasts are going mobile, FUEL TV is the place to find the best action sports events."
