Red Bull Hardline is set to return in 2021 after a hiatus year in 2020.
This will be the seventh running of the event with a course that is promised to be, "bigger and more technical than anything ever seen in previous years." So far, we've heard that the main course alteration will be an extension of the gap on the step up jump, making it faster than ever before, leading directly into a brand new 65ft step down feature.
Due to ongoing Welsh COVID-19 restrictions, Red Bull Hardline is not opening the race to spectators at this time. Red Bull says this is, "to avoid a scenario where a limited number of socially distanced spectators are allowed on-site and therefore not able to enjoy the full Hardline experience, as well as to make sure the environment is as safe for the riders as possible." Instead, the race will be streamed live and for free on Red Bull TV. More details about the streaming and rider list are expected to follow soon.
Finally, Hardline 2021 will be the first major event to pilot the Trash Free Trails Approved scheme - an independent self-certification toolkit, that aims to empower and enable organisers to deliver events to the highest possible standards in terms of sustainability.
