Swatch Nines MTB 2023 has officially kicked off at the brand-new location of Green Hill Bikepark in Schmallenberg, Germany! Additionally, the public will be able to witness the gathering of the world’s best mountain bikers on the 18th and 19th of August during the Swatch Nines public days in cooperation with the BYND The Hill Festival.

The Swatch Nines multi-functional set-up consists of interwoven freeride and slopestyle lines; the design of this course blends technical expertise and innovation. This one-of-a-kind playground is where seasoned legends and up-and-coming talents can come together to conquer gravity-defying challenges and push the boundaries of mountain biking. Let’s dive into the course and explore the highlights in more detail:

  • THE ROSE SCRUB FEATURE: Kicking things off with a bang, the Drop Tower leads into the Rose Scrub Feature. This feature presents riders with multiple opportunities – not only jumping from one side, the feature can additionally be scrubbed from the opposite side, inviting riders to get playful in the art of scrubbing.
  • SKATEPARK IN THE TREES: A colossal elevated 40-meter-long skatepark woven into the MTB Slopestyle course, multiple spine options allow the riders to loop endlessly. The second spine leads into a step-down next to the Swatch Nines Skatebowl, where mountain bikers can ride alongside a hand-picked crew of skateboarders—showcasing multiple disciplines seamlessly converging.
  • THE BIG AIR: The course culminates in one final Big Air. This remarkable feature boasts three distinct takeoffs – one for slopestyle, one for freeride and an additional progression-focused kicker equipped with the Masters of Dirt airbag, aptly named ‘The Fun Jump’.
  • PUBLIC DAYS AND BYND THE HILL FESTIVAL: Don’t miss out on the chance to experience the Swatch Nines action in person. The collaboration between Swatch Nines and Green Hill Bikepark includes the three-day BYND The Hill MTB festival, which will be held from the 18th to the 20th of August. Swatch Nines and the BYND The Hill Festival, will intertwine during the Swatch Nines Public Days on August 18th and August 19th, giving festival-goers the chance to witness the Nines athletes live in action. A BYND The Hill festival ticket is all that’s needed to watch the Swatch Nines in person:
