It’s too bad that Red Bull Rampage won’t be happening this year, and truth be told, there’s nothing else like it in the world. But for those of us in need of a freeride fix, Audi Nines provided a pretty darn good opportunity to get one, with the best European and Canadian freeriders throwing down on ludicrously sized jumps. Sadly, no US-based riders were allowed to compete due to COVID travel restrictions.
The best part of Audi Nines is that it’s actually two contests in one, featuring an FMB-grade slopestyle line right next to FEST-series sized big bike jumps. Check out the action from the second half of the event when speed and going HUGE took over from styling out never-seen-before tricks - though of course there were still plenty of styled-out never-seen-before tricks too.
