 That one fast stepdown into the left hand berm is insane, hopefully everyone brought a few rear rims to swap out each run. This track looks a bit less gnarly than the OG hardline course, but more fun for everyone. Other than that last double over the ravine, thats some Rampage shit.

 The gaps for the drops and jumps look so massive when the riders stop before the lip. Getting butterflies in my stomach just watching. Can't wait for the race! So pumped to have multiple Hardline events to watch this year.

 Looks sick. Hoping we stay away from turning this into just big jumps. More tech dh less darkfestish.

 Isn’t the point of the event to have both?

 I agree. I hope we can keep some elements of rocky, rooty technical sections and not just build massive jumps in the future.

 So many of these features at race pace will make this not darkfesty at all. Technical entries on many of the upper features. Offline on your entry and you may not be able to make the landing safely on some of these drops.

 It will just get bigger jumps as that’s what looks good in the pictures. This is about marketing and getting images and film for marketing. Big jumps are that ticket not hard tech that most of the public won’t get

 Well impressive riding . . . But the Welsh backdrop looks better . . . But I’m pretty sure once the proper filming is done it’ll look much better!

 Well, at least maybe they won't have to cancel due to high winds Razz
