Suzuki Nine Knights 2014 presented by GoPro – Day 2 Heli Session

Ever since Nine Knights announced that this year a full contingent of snowboarders were to be invited to their event in Livigno, Italy, we've been frothing at the prospect of seeing some of the best riders getting to hit what in the past has arguably been the best progressive park set up in the world. Just check out last year's video - don't worry, there is some snowboarding in there!

Now the organisers have finally announced the list and it's a doozy! As with the women's version - in which Jenny jones grabbed a joint-bronze finish last year - it's a week long session culminating in a contest, providing heaps of time for the riders to get comfortable with the massive jump set up and really push snowboarding forward.

The first full contingent of riders going to Nine Knights is below, we can't wait to see the footage!
