Breathe it in boys, breathe it fuckin’ IN. Yep, that’s the ambrosial smell of the hottest snowboard comp of the year and it’s just around the corner. The Audi Nines is back with a brand spanking new course design set to blow your tits off.
“We hear rumblings of a mysterious Wormhole… Apparently designed to short circuit the space time continuum”
From April 13th, 2020 the Audi Nines will descend on Sölden and Gurgl for a week of freestyle madness, culminating in the hotly anticipated contest day on April 18th.
Unlike other comps, the Audi Nines encourages the riders to be involved in the course design process. This ain’t the same stale jump set up that you’ve been seeing at every single other contest- this is by the riders, for the riders. Last year we had the infamous Launch Pad, a ramp so mach 10 it was boosting riders to the moon all week long. This year, we hear rumblings of a mysterious Wormhole… Apparently designed to short circuit the space time continuum and transport riders to an as yet classified location.
“Have you got the cojones to get sucked through The Wormhole?”
Don’t get us wrong, that sounds so cool, but the last time we heard ‘wormhole’ used in reference to a snowboarding competition was when Shaun White got food poisoning at X Games 2008. It wasn’t pretty, the halfpipe eventually had to be cordoned off as a health hazard.
Think you’ve got what it takes to hit the course with the pros? Have you got the cojones to get sucked through The Wormhole? The Become A Nine video contest is back to give lucky riders the chance to earn a spot at the session. For more info on applying click here.
Let me guess, you’re a little exhilarated, a little apprehensive, and more than a little turned on? Us too. Keep your eyes peeled for more info as it comes out, this is gonna be like nothing you’ve ever seen before.
