After the overwhelming success from last year, the Nine Knights MTB event is back in Livigno’s Mottolino Bike Park to kick off the summer season 2014. From 16-21 June, the best riders in the world will once again put on an extraordinary show.
Following the overwhelming success of last year’s event, Mottolino bike park will be home to the Suzuki Nine Knights MTB event, the huge media bike event designed by the German Freeskier Nico Zacek in the wake of the Nine Knights freeski event.
Nine Knights was born a few years ago with the intention of creating a media event that could convey all over the world the importance of this innovative location to the development of the sport. In order to achieve this, we had to come up with something unique, both in terms of venue and facilities. Out of this, rose the concept of a castle.
The objective of the Nine Knights is to create the most incredible freestyle structure the world has ever witnessed where athletes can continue to push the sport to new, never-before-seen levels.
The wooden castle was erected at the Passo d’Eira in record time, as the stage for all events. There will be a week-long training session which will allow the athletes to train on all the jumps and forms. The spectacle will be recorded by professional photographers, of course, and their pictures will make this one of a kind event known to the rest of the world.

On the occasion of the two public events we have arranged for your FREE shuttle buses from 18.00 to 23.00 for the sunset shooting (June 19th) and from 10.00 to 17.00 for the final contest (June 21st). Buses will leave nearby Mottolino parking lot with an intermediate stop at Sponda chairlift parking lot.
