And your 2019 Red Bull HardLine Riders are ….

The 2019 Red Bull HardLine event is going down in September in Mid-Wales.

Red Bull have just announced the first wave of riders that will brave the course.

Event Date: 14th-15th September 2019
Location: Dinas Mawddwy, Machynlleth, Wales.

Hardline is, as you probably know, the toughest mountain bike event in the UK. A hand-picked line up of riders take on a course that has been carefully built by Dan Atherton.

It’s built to be the biggest, meanest, scariest and most technically demanding thing they’re ever likely to ride… and it’s a proper blast for the rest of us to watch from the sidelines.

For 2019, the riders that are hoping to tame the beast are:
