The most talented riders in the world met at Livigno in Italy for the Nine Knights, the Big Air event of this season's end. Ben Valentin was pleasantly surprised to receive an invitation. Therefore, it is with great joy and motivation that he went over to confront the best athletes in the discipline.
The event’s peculiarity is that it brings together both a photo contest and a Big Air competition on "The Castillo", the snow castle, shaped to perfection by the crew Scheestern.
This module "multifunctional" has delighted all participants including Ben who was very comfortable, even far from a pipe.
FYI, the castle consists of a central portion with a jump of 18 meters high and 27 meters long. On each side of the table, there are two hips and on the center of the structure under the arches are two quarterpipes of 6 meters with a possibility of gap. Finally, there are two rails included in the structure ... An awesome playground!
This Saturday, during the final, eight riders found themselves facing the "Castillo". Ben Valentin has finished with a 6th place with a Tail 1260 Dub, Dub Safety 1080. Here are his impressions of the event and his performance, a beautiful story directed by Mathias Lopez.
