Freeride mountain bike legend Sam Reynolds claims victory in the Downhill category at the Suzuki Nine Knights MTB contest which took place in Reschenpass, South Tyrol, Italy. Reynolds was the dominant force on all the larger features of the course during the 99-minute jam format contest.
Compared to previous years the 2017 edition saw the Downhill bike category grow immensely with the majority of the competing athletes choosing their long travel bikes to tackle the new giant features that the course had to offer. This year’s win was especially sweet for Reynolds as he's been focusing his performance on the Downhill bike and larger big mountain free ride disciplines. Sam was tasked with the designing and building of the updates and new additions to the Reschenpass course making it a dream week for him.
