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.
This year we see a few new course changes, some new riders and the first female rider to tackle the course – Jess Blewitt from New Zealand. New Riders Jackson Goldstone, Andreas Kolb, Dave McMillan, Ronan Dunne and Dennis Luffman will also take their first runs on the iconic track. Here’s the full rider list:

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….
