Red Bull Hardline turned up the temperature today in the Dinas Maddwy. The sun made a strong appearance with light winds to boot. With the riders beginning to think about the race - the majority of runs were focussed on speed. But there were still rumours of riders throwing down the tricks. Let's take a look at what went down...



Sun shone into the pits as final adjustments were made; a chainguide for Molloy.

A fender for McMillan.
