The riders are here, the weather is cooperating and everyone is super stoked about the epic course of the Suzuki Nine Knights MTB contest presented by G-SHOCK that host Andi Wittmann built in front of an insanely beautiful background. On the first day at the castle, riders pulled some massive tricks out of the bag, leaving the filmers and photographers with huge amounts of incredible material. However, Tuesday's heli session was in a different league altogether and will probably go down in freeride history. Multiple trains had 12 riders showing their best tricks, with up to 5 riders in the air at the same time! The footage that came out of that one day will make for some insane clips, here is a little teaser filmed with a Contour on Makken "Mads" Haugen's bike (NOR). He is at the front of the pack filming back, so check out the riders by his left side. Look out for the action clips coming soon!
Pictures do speak louder than words, so enjoy these shots from day one and two by Stef Cande (www.stefcande.com
