The Race Even The Pros Are SCARED Of: Red Bull Hardline

Red Bull Hardline is the scariest mountain bike race in the world. So scary that even the pros need a serious think before tackling this incredible course!
The race is the brainchild of former World Cup downhill racer Dan Atherton, who decided World Cup tracks were simply not difficult enough! 2024 marks 10 years of Hardline in Wales, and every year the course gets tougher and the riders get better at tackling it.

But why is it so scary? And what does it take to survive and dominate the worldโ€™s toughest downhill race?

Let us know in the comments if YOU would take on Hardline!
