Nine Knights 2009: Freeskiers rock the castle
Germany’s best known freeski pro, Nico Zacek and his team, have done their homework in summer and are now ready to present another high class event on the Nebelhorn in Oberstdorf from April 13th to April 18th.
After the big success of last year, many top freeskiers of the world will come back to Oberstdorf again, and activate their incredible skiing skills to reach the glory of Knighthood, following the code of conduct “bigger, faster, better”.
The league of riders coming from North America, Scandinavia and Central Europe are excitedly looking forward to their last season highlight. Stars like the X-Games second Laurent Favre, winner of the Red Bull Playstreets Oscar Scherlin, US-Open winner JF Houle and the German mega-talent Bene Mayr guarantee freeski action on its highest level. Responsible for the media output are the elite of photographers & film crews from all over the world, who will also do their best to achieve Knighthood in the “Knight’s Tournament of the media”. And with our new main sponsor Almdudler, refreshment throughout the week will be guaranteed for all participants as well as visitors.
Awaited eagerly are the new castle-kicker-constructions which were developed by Nico in collaboration with the crew of Schneestern Parks. Everyone who saw the impressive monument the shapers carved from the snow last year has only a little idea of what we can expect this year. The construction plans are still top secret, but be sure that the feature will be even more functional and will offer some never seen innovations.
The Iron Night 2009 was a veritable success in all respects. 126 starters participated highly motivated at Crystal Ground – Snowpark Kleinwalsertal and provided a thrilling competition for the approximately 2.000 spectators and fans.
The Nissan Tram Face ends with the cancellation of the second day. The organizers were obliged to regretfully cancel the much awaited second day focusing on the quality of the competition and riders’ security.
