On the 20th of August Andi Wittmann will gather the who’s who of the freeride scene at the Wildkogel in the beautiful Salzburger region for the second time. Apart from last year’s winners Martin Söderström (SWE) and Yannick Granieri (FRA), the legendary Andreu Lacondeguy (ESP) has decided to turn up to the party, whose incredible trickery will undoubtedly feel right at home in the massive castle. The two Canadians Kurt Sorge and Geoff Gulevich, Benvenido Aguago Alba from Spain, the Germans Amir Kabbani and Timo Pritzel as well as local hero Niki Leitner from Vienna will also be part of the crusade of Knights charging the castle, causing the cameras of the world’s best mountain bike filmers and photographers to heat up from the action.
Not only the mega stars of the scene will be part of the action at the Wildkogel, this year, talented filmers have the chance to be at the centre of world-class mountain bike action as well. Contour und Suzuki Nine Knights MTB presented by G-Shock are looking for talented newcomers and professionals alike to qualify for the Main Event as well as the Contest Day - whether on a bike or behind the camera. If you want to show the big dogs what you’ve got and you feel more comfortable behind the lens than in front of it, then put together your best material in a video edit and take part in the CONTOUR WANNA BE A KNIGHT video contest. The criteria for this are naturally not necessarily action and level of riding, but the quality of shots, camera angles and editing skills.
