September. Livigno, Italy. Timo Pritzel, Xavier "Sherwy" Pasamonte and Nick Pescetto were invited to attend this year's Nine Knights event.
I arrived on the 2nd day of the event and was in time for a big bike sunset session. I definitely didn't know what to expect from this event, but looking back at old footage I knew it would be an incredible show! Hiking up the valley in Livigno was definitely tiring, though with the sun blazing throughout the week with only one cloudy day, it was worth it!
Before the night session, the light was absolutely incredible, beaming into the valley from behind the mountain. Lots of crazy trains were being thrown down. Unfortunately Nick Pescetto crashed on the last train, breaking his collarbone, which sadly also ruled him out of this year's Red Bull Rampage.
Thanks to the guys at GoPro for the on-board footage.
This was the biggest mountain bike event I have ever attended. Thank you to everybody who made this possible!
