What's it like having your own private skatepark to shred? Dan Atherton and friends have spent the winter building their very own wooden paradise to get out of the terrible British weather, and now it's time to shred!
This weekend sees the return of Red Bull Hardline. Crafted by Dan Atherton, this year's course is going to be bigger and more technical than the first. We catch up with Dan to find out how preparations have gone and his plans for the big day itself.
On Tuesday night of this week Dan was out riding dirt jumps at his local trails in Llanfyllin, when he crashed and landed awkwardly on his head. Dan was taken to Shrewsbury hospital in a ambulance where they X-rayed his upper spine. The results confirmed a fracture to his C2 vertebrae with a further CT scan confirming another fracture to his C1 vertebrae.
