The aim is to document the athletes in a fun, creative and pressure free environment, an ideal setting for progression. Together  creating breathtaking images and footage often at sunrise and sunset, sometimes from the helicopter. The public highlights is the Big Air competition.

Suzuki Nine Knights MTB 2014 – Day 5 Freeriding

Andi Wittman

“As a professional mountainbiker I’ve seen and participated in nearly every existing type of event. That’s why I want to create something new: An event arranged and realized by pro-riders and freeride enthusiasts. Mixing the ideas and experiences I have gained throughout the years led us to this concept focused on the sport, athletes, fans and the media. See you all there! ” – Andi Wittmann-
