Suzuki Nine Knights MTB 2017 GoPro Course Preview

For it’s 6th edition, the Suzuki Nine Knights MTB once more invited the world’s best freeride mountain bikers to Reschenpass, South Tyrol, Italy to get creative on one of the most innovative courses in the sport.

In this GoPro Course Preview, course designer Sam Reynolds is joined by Bienvenido Aguado (ESP) to show off the “Sendolf”, a step up kicker designed with fellow Spaniard Adolf Silva in mind, built for big tricks and massive airtime. To warm up, Canadian rider Geoff Gulevich cruises through the flow line while Sam and Adolf Silva take on the Big Bertha Kicker, the biggest of the bunch with a 4 meter take off, 3 meter step up, and 10 meter gap to landing. These features, combined with the hip and shark fin on the bottom section of the extended Big Bertha line, will give the world class invited athletes including Nicholi Rogatkin (USA), Emil Johansson (SWE), Sam Pilgrim (GBR), and Anton Thelander (SWE) endless creative possibilities for amazing new tricks.

The culmination of the week’s film and photo sessions, the Public Contest Day, will take place on Saturday the 9th of September and feature some of the biggest MTB tricks ever displayed. Pack up your sunscreen and join us at Reschenpass, South Tyrol, Italy for the final showdown.
