AUDI NINES 2019 - MAYHEM IN THE QUARRY

Sep 172019

Awe-inspiring Mountain Biking in a quarry of dreams? Yep, Audi Nines delivered the goods. The world’s best Mountain Bikers descended on theEllweiler stone quarry near Birkenfeld, Germany, for another week of unconventional riding and all-time send sessions. 28 Mountain Bikers from 11 nations were invited to this incredible location for a week of photo & video shoots on spectacular features, which concluded with an explosive finish well worthy of the event series’ 25th edition.

The Audi Nines team absolutely smashed the course build, with not only a Freeride Line and Slopetyle line that overhauled the already impressive 2018 course, but also constructed a ridiculous mountain of dirt into one of the biggest Hip landings we’ve seen! The boys were busy sending it to the moon all week and absolute mayhem ensued.

Revelling in the new build and additional features, the GoPro Course preview delivered an X Box-worthy ride through the course onboard Sam Reynolds and Clemens Kaudela, 2 of the key course building team members:

 

““The course really celebrates every aspect of freeride mountain biking, from the skatepark area up to the humongous hip—which is one of the biggest I’ve ever seen—and everything in between,” Sam Reynolds. ”

For the first time this year, the Audi Nines MTB welcomed the general public to its secluded location for a public contest day. After five days of action-packed media sessions, the gates of the quarry were opened to MTB fans, with nearly 4,000 spectators packing the hillside to watch an unbelievable session take place in the most unique location out there!

 

Overall hero, course builder and 2nd place winner for Best Line (freeride): Sam Reynolds had a hell of a week and destroyed the course throughout: “So happy with getting on the podium on the Big Bike Line! Bienvenido deserved his first place, but I’m really stoked with getting in 2nd- what a week!”
