More eagerly anticipated than the clock hitting 5pm on a Friday, more exciting than Christmas, more cinematic than Cannes Film Festival, more majestic than the Catalina Wine Mixer- it’s the Audi Nines Mixtape Volume 2. The last time we were this stoked for a mixtape was when Lil’ Wayne dropped ‘Da Drought 3’ in ’07 (Don’t judge us it was a different time).
You’re gonna wanna grab a snack, empty your bladder, and put up the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign, because you’re gonna wanna watch this spicy little edit over and over. We had to physically restrain our intern after he started trying to make out with his laptop screen after watching Sebbe boost his mammoth double off the launch pad. This thing should come with a parental guidance warning…

We’ve been frothing over this since we got the course concept visuals, and the event itself definitely did not disappoint. The riders were going hell for leather the whole week over their 2 specially designed courses, jumping, slashing, spinning, sliding and grabbing their way around some of the most insane and creative park features we’ve ever clapped our little eyes on.
The women’s course saw up and comers like Annika Morgan, who won the Wildcard Competition, getting sendy alongside legends in the game Anna Gasser and Yuka Fujimori. The women’s course in Obergurgl-Hochgurgl was shaped by the Diamond Girls Crew, who win points for being both the raddest and most stylish shapers in the Tyrol.
