It’s fair to say that this year’s event was something extremely special Featured Image: Syo van Vliet Bangers. Wall to wall bangers. Nothing but bangers. Bang tidy bangers. Bang, bang, you’re dead bangers. Cillit Bang(ers). Audi Nine MTB 2019 bangers. Bangers ‘n’ Mash. So many bangers Nearly 4,000 spectators went to the Ellweiler stone quarry near Birkenfield to watch the conclusion of The Audi Nines MTB 2019. And boy, oh boy, were they treated to a spectacle. 28 of the world’s greatest mountain bikers, at an event put on in collaboration with Bikepark Idarkopf, gathered together with the aim of progressing their sport to brave new heights (sometimes literally). The invited riders, a hand-selected group of absolute rippers, wowed the crowd with sessions on the spot’s Big Air Jump, Freeride, Slopestyle lines, and the iconic “Perfect Hip” at the quarry’s bottom. “The level we saw today was just crazy” Germany’s Nico Schloze and Erik Fedko took the wins in the Big Air (DH Bike) and Best Line (Slopestyle) respectively while American Nicholi Rogatkin placed first in Big Air (Hardtail) and Spaniard Bienvenido Aguado Alba claimed top spot in the Big Line (Freeride). The day’s excitement ended with a crowd-wowing session on the site’s gargantuan hip, with riders soaring to jaw-dropping heights. “This was the best public display we’ve done in 25 events,” said Audi Nines creator Nico Zacek. “Usually it’s more about the video and photo shoots for us. But the energy from thousands of cheering fans is amazing for the athletes. It gave them extra motivation to perform their best, and the level we saw today was just crazy.” Video Highlights From The Audi Nines MTB 2019 Banger’s ‘n’ Mash Edit Nicholi Rogatkin, Twister No Hander Bienvenido Aguado, Tsunami Front Flip Jackson Goldstone, Double Backflip Tom Isted, Double Barrel Roll Credit: Klaus Polzer Credit: Klaus Polzer Credit: Klaus Polzer Credit: Klaus Polzer You May Also Like Raw 100 V5 | 100 Seconds Of Brandon Semenuk In Utah Mountain Biking In Nepal | Riding The Gosainkunda Trail In The Himalayas The post The Audi Nines MTB 2019 | Highlights appeared first on Mpora.

More information on Red Bull Rampage can be found here: redbull.com/us-en/events/rampage SPECTATOR ADVISORY Red Bull Rampage features the world’s greatest riders tackling the most intense terrain of any contest on the planet – no novices here. The same applies for spectators; this event is not for casual observers. The new Red Bull Rampage venue was chosen for its ability to challenge the riders and push their limits, so it is remote, hot, unforgiving and dangerous. No transportation from the parking lot to the venue will be provided. From the lot, it is four miles to the contest venue over uneven desert terrain that you will either have to hike or pedal. If you ride it, you’ll need to check your bike at the on-site bike valet once you reach the contest venue, no exceptions. The good news is that both ticket options offer free bike valet! Spectators will be required to stay within the designated viewing areas at the base of the course near the finish line. No pets allowed, and non-adult spectators are not recommended. All on-site rules and requirements are necessary to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment. If you decide to attend, pack plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, extra layers of clothing, basic first-aid gear, and a flashlight/headlamp as no provisions will be available on-site. In other words, treat it like an unsupported weekend ride with your buddies. Just think ahead, be smart, and come prepared to have an amazing time.
