Audi Nines ’21 / The Bar Has Truly Been Raised
Audi Nines 2021 presented by Falken has drawn to a close, and the venue has been absolutely shredded to pieces by the riders.
From top to bottom, the Quarry has been inundated with non-stop tricks and heavy lines, including phenomenal world’s firsts from Caroline Buchanan, Elias Ruso, Sam Hodgson and Emil Johansson.
The avant-garde of mountain biking gathered in the Hunsrück-Nahe bike region near Birkenfeld, Germany, for a week of constant sessions and progression between 23rd to the 28th of August. The location, a repurposed stone quarry, has once again been completely upgraded beyond recognition to a world-class mountain bike venue and has seen the levels of mountain biking pushed to their limits by a stellar group of riders.
These riders usually face each other in competitive environments, whereas Audi Nines provides a one-of- a-kind creative space to progress their sport. From the moment they stepped into the Quarry, the stoke was high, and riders went straight to business, sessioning the interweaving lines and riding every custom- built obstacle in sight.
