Photography Contest Winners

The time has come to reveal the winning photos of the AWESOME photo contest taking place during the Suzuki Nine Knights MTB 2016! With the four invited photographers, Christophe Laue (GER), Martin Erd (GER), JB Liautard (FRA), and Eric Palmer (ZA), covering the course top to bottom for 5 full days, it was guaranteed that the photo offerings would be as diverse as they are incredible. Judged by their peers at the Gala Night, the categories this year were “Best Action”, “Best Illumination”,  “Best Composite” and “Best Lifestyle”. A huge thank you to you all for coming out and sharing with us your incredible artistry!
