Four talented freeskiers have been chosen from the “Wanna be a Knight” Online Video contest to join the fabled knights in Livigno for the Suzuki Nine Knights presented by GoPro. The winners, Oscar Wester from Sweden, Frenchman Julien Eustache, Canadian Vincent Gagnier and Dennis Ranalter from Austria all received an invitation to the ultimate supersession from March 30th to April 4th 2014 at Mottolino Fun Mountain in Italy!

The winning video clips earned the four riders a well-deserved spot on the elite riders list. Oscar Wester shows terrific rail skills including a six-fold kinked-rail, and in addition to his excellent jibber qualities, his doubles, switch doubles and triples on big kickers earned him the invitation to the event. Julien’s clip is marked by his smooth and unique style, his flips on and off the rails and his exceptional grabs on the jumps. Big air specialist Vincent Gagnier has submitted one of the most unusual videos with incredibly creative tricks like a dub bio 1620 octograb, a switch cork 720 pole driver and a switch cork 540 to pretzel 180. The fourth winner is the Austrian Dennis Ranalter, who impressed with his style, creative grabs and double cork variations.
