Freeride is Alive: The Audi Nines MTB Course Looks Sick

What a time for freeride mountain biking. In the last few weeks alone, we’ve been treated to Crankworx, two pro-level FMB slopestyle stopsBlack Sage FEST, and Marzocchi Proving Grounds, and the season isn’t even over yet. This week, in an abandoned quarry over in Birkenfeld, Germany, the world’s best freeride and freestyle riders are at it again for the next edition of Audi Nines.

Last year, we were introduced to this super-unique course that blends classic freeride hits with new-school slopestyle features. This year, there’s even a mini skatepark on course. Check out a course preview from Peter Kaiser and the mastermind behind it all Sam Reynolds.

We're used to seeing great edits from DJ Brandt, Hugo "Frixfrix" Frixtalon, and William Robert, but this one has raised the bar higher still. Shot in Colorado, Utah, BC, and the French Alps, this video is ten minutes of beautiful cinematography and rowdy tricks. From DJ Brandt ripping big-mountain lines in Utah to William Robert hitting a massive jump line in the Alps, it's all sick.  RELATED: Here Are Our Favorite Moments From Formation Well paired with a soundtrack featuring the likes of

Video: DJ Brandt’s ‘Rise to Rampage’ Ep. 3

Watching coverage of Red Bull Rampage might convince you that the competitors are robots, entirely incapable of feeling normal emotions like fear and self-doubt. For better or worse, that isn't actually the case. While the competitors are undoubtedly the MTB freeride world's cream-of-the-crop, Rampage is enough to put fear in the heart of even the rowdiest sender. This video takes a look behind the scenes at DJ Brandt's mental and emotional state in the lead-up to Rampage 2018, and there are
