The Setup

Following their many successes in the years past,  Sam Reynolds will continue his work with Clemens Kaudela and Andi Brewi’s Balzamico Trail Design to develop one of the most innovative courses freeride MTB has ever seen.


This year’s course will build off of last year’s which included: two super step-ups, 12 and 18 meters long; and a 7 meter high quarter-pipes with dirt landing.


Returning to the line-up as a rider but also course co-designer,  Brit Sam Reynolds is pumped, as “freeride MTB is changing for the better and I’m excited to work with these guys to create an awesome set up with sick jumps at the forefront of the new freeride big air movement! Can’t wait!”


Balzamico Trail Design are creating the opportunity for more air time in the course and the existing terrain is perfect for that. According to the past course designer Andi Wittmann (GER): “shaping along a huge avalanche mound is not only more environmentally friendly, its perfect for creating something extraordinary that combines freeride and slopestyle elements with huge obstacles.”
