From the 9th to the 14th of April, the Audi Nines presented by Falken provide the ultimate playground to the worlds best snow sports athletes in the history of the event—with the cutting-edge SlopeX concept, created by riders for riders. Aspiring talents have the chance to come to Sölden and ride SlopeX by entering the ‘Become a Nine’ video competition, while fans can be on site at the Public Contest Day in Sölden.
The Audi Nines are proud to add an all-new discipline to this year's event, SlopeX. The innovative SlopeX course combines Ski- and Snowboardcross elements with Slopestyle features and athletes from both disciplines are quite excited. “The Audi Nines will be the craziest set-up so far,” says Slopestyle Snowboarder Sebbe de Buck (BEL) who helped design the course. “There’s a race course with flowy sections as well as big jumps and rails, all in one.” The SlopeX course features a huge multi-functional quarter pipe and three lines enabling individual and team challenges. While the focus will be on speed and style, the exact format will be shaped by how the riders interact with the course in the first days of the event.
