Willem Van Gansen
After a few years in the background Willem exploded on the Belgian and European scene this year. Always motivated to ride any kind of spot, whether it’s a concrete park, a ditch or huge set of trails. He will cruise it like he’s local and with tons of flow and style. His positive and laid back character combined with his amazing skill on the bike makes him a fun person to have around and a true riding buddy.
The first full day of Simple Session went underway today, and it was an amazing day. Seeing this on hand for the first time it’s really been an amazing experience. This is truly an international competition of the highest caliber. People say it’s the X-Games of Europe, but atleast to me, it’s much different. As it started as a smaller contest, it has this amazing home grown feel to it, that absolutely cannot be replicated. With such an international cast and crew, I’m more inclined to say Simple Session is in a class of it’s own.
Since just about everyone will be inevitably blogging all the ACTION that went down today, I figured I’d take a different approach and show some of the people that are a part of the extended Quintin family. Don’t hate on me for taking iPhone photos… I love it.
Aaron Ross and Gabe Brooks. These guys are both Quintin USA, and I love this photo. No not because it’s such a good photo that you’d never believe it was shot with an iPhone, but because it really highlights their differences and I think it speaks to their riding style.
This was the first time I actually got to meet Willem Van Gansen. He’s a pretty amazing guy, and have you had a chance to check this out yet??? Look for more with Willem, as he’s an absolutely monster of a rider. Quintin Belgium!
Dave Duncan! Yo thanks a ton for the shout outs today…it was MUCH appreciated!
Brecht is our Belgium distributor. That means he drinks good beer on the daily! He’s an amazing gatekeeper to have as part of the Quintin family.
Nickolay is our Russian distributor. He’s been with us for awhile, and it’s always good times with Nickolay. Can’t wait to see your hood, homie!
Tomorrow will be crazier than today, so make sure to check out the live feed right here.

We are stoked to welcome Willem into the worldwide QNTN posse.
