There's a few line-up changes in the BMX category. Unfortunately two time SS bronze medalist Dennis Enarson has separated his shoulder and will be out for 6 weeks, unable to ride at the SS this year. Christian Porras from Colombia had a crash and the result was two screws in his ankle and 3 months of recovery. Also Leon Perkins from the UK is injured.
But so a few awesome new riders for the SS are upped up from the 'reserve list' to the confirmed riders list. They are William "Abobadinho"" Pinto from Brazil, Brandon Loupos from Australia and Ay Anaya from the United States. All three will be shredding at the Simple Session 12!
