The Suzuki Nine Knights and Nine Queens played host to some insane moments over the last seven years. Some rise from the buzzing creativity of the event: medieval swords, naked front flips, crazy trains and half pipe transfers. Many have become defining corner stones in the progression of the sport whether bagging a world’s first, a personal first or throwing down a statement of style.
Here are our TOP 10 Moments of All Time! Enjoy!

This year we invited four filmers to join the quest of the Nine Queens. Each filmer was teamed up with three of the riders and had all week to submit an edit by Saturday evening. The filmers were assigned with the task to capture a “typical week” in the lives of our Queens and the judges around Nine Knights MTB host Andi Wittmann looked for creativity, editing, choice of music, and action. The submission will be released one after another for the next week, so check out our first one, stay tuned and enjoy the show!
