Hard by name, hard by nature, Red Bull Hardline isn’t an event for the fainthearted. Hailed as one of the toughest downhill mountain bike races in the world, the fourth edition of Red Bull Hardline returns to the hills of Dyfi Valley in the north of Wales on September 24th, 2017. The intense course, built by Dan Atherton, combines gap jumps, giant slab rolls and tight wood sections. It’s tough on mind, body and bike. Due to high demand, more tickets for Red Bull Hardline 2017 will go on sale on Tuesday September 12 at 12pm. Head over to the Red Bull Bike Facebook on this day to get your hands on them.

Red Bull Hardline is now in it’s fourth year and is the brain-child of Dan Atherton. The course, both designed and built by Dan Atherton, is set to test even the most progressive of riders, with giant slab rolls, tight wood sections and huge gap jumps.
