Day 4: Going, Going, Gone!

Day 4 of the Suzuki Nine Knights began before the sun had even risen as the athletes made their way up the mountain for the early bird sunrise shoot. The riders came with serious energy, determined to make the most of the light and the photographers’ incredible skills. After that early warm up, the boys were ready to go by the afternoon and it showed in the tricks they put down on the main feature’s quarter pipe, trick booter, and right hip.

To get everyone hyped, Clemens Kaudela went absolutely massive on the quarter pipe, definitely boosting  the highest air of the the event so far. The stoke spread from there! Szymon Godziek (POL) went hard hit after hit, stomping a huge cork 720 tuck no hander and was closely followed by young gun Adolf Silva (SPA) who blew minds with his blackflip superman seat grab.

If that wasn’t enough, late arrival Nico Scholze (GER) nailed his tsnunami flip, a trick that was followed by Diego Caverzasi’s (ITA) impressive flip cliff hanger. With tricks like these, it’s safe to say that the contest day is going to see some serious action.
