From 22nd to 27th April 2019, international ski cross and snowboard cross athletes showed off their abilities in the alpine valley Ötztal.
This year, the 11th edition of the Audi Nines took place in two different locations for the first time: while the male athletes were competing on the Söldener Glacier, the women conquered the course on the nearby Obergurgl-Hochgurgl.
It was a great event where exceptional talents participated, amazing everybody with true masterpieces in their discipline: no wonder that KIKU Apples actively took part in the event supporting athletes, as an event sponsor and on-site ambassador for Norbert with an apple to hand.
Alongside the professional performances, the film and photo sessions, a Night Shoot and the Public Contest Day on the Söldener Glacier were also scheduled for the 27th April. Qualified participants from both Ski and Snowboard categories were invited to give their best on the slopes in front of the expectant crowd. Particularly on this day, there was a hustle and bustle in the KIKU-tent.
The apple was spruced up specially for the occasion: with a new look and a cool style, it was presented with the Audi Nines logo laser engraved and surprised fans and athletes. All in all, a successful appearance!
The fact that the direct connection between apples and sport, as well as with cuisine and gastronomy works successfully, was also confirmed by Norbert Niederkofler’s CARE’s – The ethical Chef Days 2019, where Audi supported the event as title sponsor. An all-around successful symbiosis!
