THE NINES MTB 2022 Cancelled
The Nines have made the difficult decision to cancel the MTB 2022 event. The sentiment that "The show must go on" is in our DNA, and this is the first time in Nines history that the MTB event will not occur as planned; even in the face of Covid-19, we endeavoured to host an event against all odds, and The Nines thrived because of it.
At this point in time, our team recognizes that there are too many obstacles, from changing sponsors' commitments to global economic & political factors beyond our control. With all these individual elements shifting around us, the strategic move is not to host an event, knowing that The Nines cannot put forward the best effort in showcasing its concept at the level we uphold ourselves to. Now is the time to take stock of our format and come back with two stronger events in 2023.
Nines Founder Nico Zacek confirms, "The team are committed to doing this nine month break, providing a creative pause to improve the ever-evolving concept for 2023 and beyond. We are sad on the one hand but truly believe that this is the right decision." Zacek says, "We are incredibly motivated to prove this break is what is best for The Nines in the long term. We are regrouping to reflect on the industries we move in, to adapt for a relaunch in spring 2023 at the snow event.'
To all of our participants, partners and fans, thank you for trusting the decision and stay tuned for our next moves. We will continue to bring you the unique events you love – creating the ultimate playground to progress action sports.
