Red Bull Hardline 2022 | Live Broadcast Times

It’s the hardest downhill race on the planet and a race that draws the best riders on the gnarliest terrain and puts them against the clock. Red Bull Hardline is back for 2022 and it’s bigger than ever with new features, course changes and Dan Atherton’s trail building genius. Here’s the details and live broadcast times….

There’s no straightforward route to the top of Hardline. It’s a back and forth fire road that weaves its way up the mountainside, taking the uplift land rovers around half an hour to reach the top… offering the riders plenty of time to visualise the beast that they’re about to take on.

Hardline is an event that is not aimed at your World Cup riders, it’s not aimed at the fastest in the World on Bike Park tracks, it’s aimed squarely at the best technical riders in the World that can tackle tough terrain fast. The brain child of Dan Atherton, Hardline finds it’s home in the Dyfi Valley, Wales – where the technical terrain, challenging weather conditions and awesome course build produces a magical event.

Live Broadcast Times

Red Bull Hardline Finals Sunday September 11 9:00 PM AEST (UTC+10)

It’s going to be a big event with some super gnarly riding on some huge features – a reipe for success and quite a spectacle. It’s nearly always moist in Wales and we should probably expect a slippery course, adding plenty of spice to an already spicy track. Tune in live on Red Bull TV or via right here on Brakes Wide Open….
