by The Audi Nines  
The 2015 Suzuki Nine Knights MTB round table is now set, complete with big name freeriders and three 'Become a Knight' wild card winners. The course build is well on its way, the huge main kickers with its two reverse transitions rising above the Livigno valley, and the trail features, such as the mini-skate ramp fast emerging. Some serious airtime and fun riding is ahead for the week of the 31st of August to the 5th of September 2015 when 'Il Castello' on Mottolino Fun Mountain will see many photoshoots and the Big Air contest.

To our delight Sweden’s Martin Söderström, who last year was awarded 'best trick' with his triple tailwhip, is planning his return after a long rehabilitation period.

Appearing for the first time at the event is Nicholi Rogatkin (USA), a rookie stirring it up on the FMB World Tour, with a fresh Red Bull Joyride podium under his belt he is one to watch out for. Newly knighted are Rampage legend Kelly McGarry (NZL) and KC Deane known also as a freeski pro. Even host Andi Wittman will be participating from the sidelines due to injury.

The “Become a Knight” video contest wild card winner are…
The choice was tough for the judges with nearly 30 video entries. In fact, with such abundant high level riding seen the decision was made that three riders will be joining the week-long session: the Italian trickster Torquato “Toto” Testa, Adolf Silva from Spain and Blake Samson from the UK. Additionally, the judges decided to invite some of the outstanding riders to join the Big Air Competition. Join us to watch Bartek 'Jaws' Krzyszton (POL), Loek Quadflieg (NED), Eric Walenta (AUT), Daniele Ferri (ITA) and Mauro Toffaletti (ITA) compete with the rest of the knights on Saturday 5th of September.

 good for jaws, another experience and opportunity to show himself to the public! however in my opinion this is not a contest for him. He is a true freerider, fest series and rampage are his field. 9 knights is awesome but it is dominated by a slopestyle riders.

 @chyu these jumps are too small, they went building a new line at rampage - massive drop from the start gate to the finish.

 great line up. fun to see if Torquato Testa is out on the big bike, and if adolf tries that mental double back flip he tried in the fest!

 They couldn't invite everybody, so not everyone is going to be happy but it looks like a great mix of experienced vets, up-and-comers and deserving newbies. The one thing the (almost) all have in common is a nice balance between slopestyle and the big bike - not just FMB or Fest. So yes Rodney, we *can* all just get along!
