The Freeski scene already knows the Mottolino Fun Mountain as the venue for the Nine Knights Freeski event that came to Italy for the first time last April. After the event with the legendary snow castle turned out to be a great success on Fun Mountain, Nine Knights Mountain Bike will complete the Nine Knights family in Livigno.

Makken “Mads” Haugen and Martin Soderstrom are having fun with their Contours at the Suzuki Nine Knights presented by G-SHOCK. More clips to come!
The sun was beaming as crowds of spectators were admiring the trick fireworks that the Knights at the Wildkogel were throwing down. Some of the world’s best mountain bikers had travelled from ten different nations to the „Wildkogel-Arena Neukirchen Bramberg“ and were set on really sending it one more time for the contest day. At the end of the day, there were several winners; Yannick Granieri (FRA) bagged Best Trick with a huge backflip doublewhip, Martin Söderström (SWE) rode the Best Line, Louis Reboul (FRA) had the Best Whip and host Andi Wittmann shares first place for Best Air with Kurt Sorge (CAN). In a few days the second action clip goes live, so be prepared to be amazed.
The crowd was great, thanks to everyone who joined us!
