Nico Zacek slides across the ax-shaped Nine Knights box feature and Andi Wittmann airs his bike next to him as photographer Klaus Polzer captures the action. The three are shooting photos to advertise the Nine Knights mountain bike event in Livigno this summer. After a few tries to get the timing right, Klaus nails the shot, and Nico can take off for his next task of the day: television interviews back at the hotel.
