Video: Red Bull Hardline 2014
@kudos100, I agree - although this season did see a couple of tracks that I would call "real DH tracks". The more technical and steep, the better. Where I disagree (with the first comment) is that THIS is where DH racing should be moving. There are already some great freeride and hybrid-events out there for the few that are actually skilled enough to hit features this massive, and Hardline is another great addition.. But it just isn't real racing anymore, if half of the track is bikepark features that can pretty much only be ridden at one specific speed without under/overshooting it. Furthermore I think it would kill most of the racing field, limiting possible contenders to something like 30-40 riders at tops - not to mention completely killing the junior and women division. They often have trouble clearing the WC race track features as it is.

Definitely an amazing track and event, but I don't think this is where DH racing is (or should be) heading. Mostly natural, steep and extremely technical tracks are what allows pro DH riders to enter "race mode" and set them selves apart from the flock = exciting races for us to watch. Not that a few big moto jumps, insane drops and balls-out-hyperspeed sections can't be incorporated into a good DH race track, but too much of it isn't healthy for racing. It simply takes too much caution and slowing down to hit such extreme features. Let freeriding and hybrid-events (like Hardline) be the place for that, and DH racing be about racing.

Yep. I was starting to think, that it was some sort of natural feature of the mountains in that region. Braking bumps on straight lines that isn't even that steep had me confused..

Same issue over and over, and over, and over and over again... Makes the replays pretty pointless.

How did the commentators miss Zink's blown rear tire?? You can even see it pop on that hip jump! And congrats to Lacondeguy - what a boss!
