Nine Knights 2016 - the documentary
A new location but just as rad
Nine Knights moved from Livigno to Reschenpass and here's a great in-depth documentary showing off an action packed week.
Nine Knights said: "With seven film makers shooting 19 athletes over six days; and after 250 hours of editing and mastering over five terabytes of footage the event team is proud to introduce the “Suzuki Nine Knights MTB 2016 – The Documentary". Crank up the volume!
Narrated by the athletes, the film gives new in-depth insight into the stunning action like the “Best Trick of the Week", a smooth cork 720 no-hander from Szymon Godziek (POL); Clemens Kaudela’s (AUT) huge quarterpipe air now etched into mountain bike history; and Adolf Silva’s (ESP) double back flip on the intimidating “Big Bertha" which according to Sam Pilgrim (GBR) is “the biggest one ever done". “Ruler of the Week" Sam Reynolds (GBR) describes the event’s importance to the sport, while Anton Thelander’s (SWE) transfer attempt shows the price of progression and highlights the incredible camaraderie between the athletes.
