Red Bull Hardline Tasmania is Just Eight Days Away.

The opening round of the 2024 Red Bull Hardline series will kick off in eight days at Maydena Bike Park in Tasmania with the event streaming for free.

Red Bull Hardline visits its new home in the southern hemisphere in just over a week’s time as thirty riders head to Maydena Bike Park for some serious downhill racing.

Red Bull Hardline Tasmania will be streamed live on Red Bull TV at 7am UK time (6pm AEDT) here.

The sold out Red Bull Hardline Australia will take place 23-24th February, a few months before the event returns once again to Wales’ Dyfi Valley on the 1st & 2nd June. For those watching from home, the event will be broadcasted on Red Bull TV at 6pm AEDT time (7am GMT).

In the rugged terrain of Maydena Bike Park in Tasmania, over 30 riders from all over the world will tackle some of the most challenging mountain bike trails Australia has to offer. The course has been built over the past three months, using a team of 15 predominantly Tasmanian staff.

Simon French from Maydena Bike Park saysOn the edge of Tasmania’s South West Wilderness, Maydena Bike Park has provided a perfect canvas for developing a course that is befitting of the Red Bull Hardline legacy. Using nearly 600m of vertical elevation, the all-new course takes in a huge diversity of forest types, terrain and trail features. After a massive few months of construction, we look forward to welcoming riders on course soon.’
