As you all know, K-124 Days 2010 will not take place in Buthiers, as the tradition of almost a decade would have it, but at the Tour de Sçay, Doubs, where organiser Alain Rémy’s club (Bike Trial Franc-Comtois) is based (K-124 Days 2010 at the Tour de Sçay !).

K-124 explained their reasons for the move for 2010: it turns out that they are planning something much bigger than any of us might have imagined and that will give more attention to the other disciplines (flatland, dirt and new for this year… downhill!) than in previous years. The new site, which Biketrial regulars will know well (the 2008 World Championship was held there), is great for trials: It is full of superb, technical rocks. Koxx Days/K-124 Days has been held in Buthiers for almost ten years now and it was getting harder and harder to set sections that were different to the previous years. This year Alain Rémy will be on home turf and will doubtless use this to his advantage in preparing something monstrous for us! Tribal Zine will of course be on hand to bring you live updates and media from the event.

K-124 have just uploaded the event’s official website and you can already register for the competition, the first big meet of the 2010 season! Click below to go to the K-124 Days 2010 website. For more info contact k124days@k-124.com or call +33 (0)1 64 04 44 63.

K-124 Days 2010: The next stage!

The official K-124 press release about the tenth K-124 Days:

JPEG - 209 kb For the tenth annual K-124 Days festival, we have decided to look to the future.

This will manifest itself firstly in a change of venue. The disciplines present at K-124 Days 2010 require a more extreme terrain.

We have therefore decided to move K-124 days to a more appropriate venue.

The event will take place at la Tour de Sçay, near Besançon.

This choice has been made for the following reasons:

- a long and well established relationship between the local club and K-124.
- The team has a vast experience in organising international events, including the Buthiers editions of K-124 Days and several World Championship rounds.
- 350 tonnes of rocks, 20 hectares of woodland, 100m of incline…
- The structures used for hits edition of K-124 Days will become permanent for the club, which is an important point in our eyes.

This year another major change will be made:

- In addition to the trials competitions and flatland (BMX and Unicycle) that will take place over the three days, the Easter Monday will be dedicated to the Baron Race! The idea of this race is to pit riders from all bike disciplines against one another on the same course, which will have sections that favour each discipline. The winner will therefore be the number one rider in all disciplines!
- Other new events and activities that will be added to the itinerary include a DH competition (bike and unicycle), a BMX track, dirt jumps and an air bag.

K-124 Days 2009 Flash-back!

A look back at the 9th edition of the K-124 Days festival, was more intense than ever…

PNG - 370.3 kb The 2009 season got off to a great start with an exceptionally intense K-124 Days. Over the two days spectators witnessed one of the most challenging and passionate competitions ever organised. For those of you not lucky enough to be there, Tribal Zine brought you day to day coverage of this major event in the trials calendar, with the first pictures of the brand new Sky 26” bikes which were officially unveiled at the festival (Presentation of the Koxx Sky 26" 2009), followed by a best-of photo gallery and results the day after the competitions (K-124 Days 2009 – Day 1 & The K-124 Days 2009 Final).

Tribal Zine also brought you THE official K-124 Days video, filmed using three HD cameras (Marcus Gelhard, Nicolas Ollier and Nicolas Marsac) fitted with steadycam equipment and which features all of the best moments of the weekend (K-124 Days 2009 by Tribal Zine)! This fantastic multicamera HD video allows us to relive this magical weekend in all its intensity and from every angle. You will see the first video footage of this year’s famous Paris street session, led this year by Benito Ros. Next, it’s off to Buthiers for the K-124 Days proper. The shots are magnificent; the editing is very professional and dynamic. Between the footage of the two days of competition the two superhuman riders, Vincent Hermance and Gilles Coustellier give us their opinions on the new Super-Elite category, on the never-before-seen level of difficulty, their new bikes (the first Sky prototypes) and admit to suffering from stress, like all of us mere mortals… 18 minutes of pure trials pleasure, not to be missed! We cannot recommend enough that you download the original file from Vimeo to watch it in its original resolution.

Some images from the video, voted by many as the best trials video of the year:
