The Audi Nines was a Blast!
Andri Ragettli wins the Audi Nines BigAir EVENT and Jennie- Lee Burmasson 2nd in the ladies
It's a wrap: on Saturday the winners in seven categories were crowned at the Audi Nines presented by Falken in Sölden, Austria. At the Public Contest Day, the male and female skiers and snowboarders showed thrilling performances on the new SlopeX course as well as Big Air and Quarterpipe.
With the exciting set-up and perfect weather conditions drawing more than 3,000 spectators to Tiefenbach Glacier, the riders gave it their all and showed everyone they were eager to progress their sports. The athletes loved the unique combination of speed and creative obstacles. But also on a social level, the past six days at the Audi Nines brought Snow Cross and Slopestyle riders closer together. Mixing competitors from both disciplines created a whole new dynamic, as they brought their own interpretation of the SlopeX features and how to ride them.
Closing a week full of exciting photo and film sessions, the Public Contest Day on the 14th of April 2018 will go down in history, not only for the unique approach of the organizers but also for the jaw-dropping skills the riders showed. The Public Contest Day was a perfect ending to an exciting week at the Audi Nines presented by Falken. The thrilling footage produced in Sölden during the previous days proves the event has taken these sports to a new level.
Andri Ragettli placed 1st and in the womens Jennie- Lee Burmasson 2nd.
Andri Ragettli (SUI): "It was cool to be on the course together with the ski racers. I rode a looping for the first time ever on skis. I'm looking forward to the Audi Nines presented by Falken next year!"
