Nine Knights Set Up Mottolino Livigno

With over 20 video submissions, the Online Video Qualification was the fiercest yet and the standard of tricks has been truly amazing. From amongst all the worthy entrants the judges selected Tobi Wrobel (GER) and Adrian Tell (NOR) to come to Livigno and join up with the assembled Nine Knights riders. Watch the winners’ submissions here:

“We are also pleased to announce the winners of the Killer Loop Photo Qualification and the response has been absolutely outstanding. Over 45 people submitted entries and we cannot help but be impressed and inspired by the creativity and quality on display”, says Andi Wittmann, host of the event. Jan Kasl from the Czech Republic is going to be able to showcase his talents with the FIAT Nine Knights (nineknightsmtb.com/jan-kasl-cz).

Nine Knights Set Up Mottolino Livigno

100 cubic metres of wood, countless tons of dirt and 30 days hard work - Andi Wittmann and the guys of “Balzamico Trail Design” as well as the team of the Mottolino Fun Mountain spared no effort to provide the riders with the sickest obstacles and the most impressive and regal set-up they have ever seen. The set-up is centred on the Nine Knights castle “Il Castello“ whichs stands comfortably amongst the finest features in freeriding in the way it combines the best chances for trick innovation with athlete safety and maximum fun factor.

The FIAT Nine Knights MTB is all about giving the world’s best riders and media professionals the perfect environment to showcase their considerable talents in one of the most stunning locations in Italy. Drawing together illustrious names such as Andreu Lacondeguy, Graham Agassiz, Yannick Granieri and Kurt Sorge, host Andi Wittmann is sure that the 2013 edition of the FIAT Nine Knights, in Livigno will be huge.

Andi Wittmann says, “The guys just love coming to this event and this year we have tinkered with the format a bit so that the fans can have the opportunity to see the athletes not only on the Saturday competition day, but also during an exciting public night-time photo shoot on Thursday September 5 from 8pm. The night shoot will be an undoubted highlight for all fans of freeriding. Put together with the overwhelming response we have had to our Online Video Qualification and the Killer Loop Photo Qualification, I think that September 2 can’t come round fast enough!”

 uhmmm I think it's FIAT cause the event happen to be in Italy, so, it makes sence, and for those who doubt about the sponsor maybe they do it because they don't know FIAT owns Ferrari, Maserati and Alfa romeo...

Especially with soderstrom unable to compete, he is the next best chance at the triple-Whip 3, and the Triple-Whip Flip!

 Adrian Tell was doomed to be one of the winners with his footage from Lines of Lofoten. And "Tobi continued..." was witty Big Grin Two deserved wins.

 Everybody seems to be complaining about the Riders List. I think it's really nice to see different riders than usual. Maybe the occasion to change the current supremacy in MTB slopestyle
