Red Bull Hardline Preview 2016 - Video

Sep 14, 2016 at 9:20
by Red Bull Bike  


Two years in and Red Bull Hardline has quickly become known as the toughest downhill mountain bike race in the world. The course, designed and built by Dan Atherton, is set to test even the most progressive of riders, with giant slab rolls, tight wood sections and huge gap jumps.

Over the last couple of years, the event has attracted some of the world’s best and bravest riders, and a glimpse of this year’s preliminary list doesn’t disappoint. With more riders signed up than ever before, the mix of athletes looks set to make an exciting race that anyone could win.

Discover more about each of the riders set to take to the start line below.

Gee Atherton
Being brother to course creator Dan Atherton, it’s no surprise to see Gee at the top of the rider list. Gee’s been plagued with bad luck over the last two years. With punctures in both previous races, he’ll be desperate to show everyone what he’s capable of on the course this year.

Dan Atherton
Last year Dan Atherton was a victim of his own creation, breaking his shoulder during a spectacular crash before the competition had even started. Being the course designer does come with certain advantages, so it will be interesting to watch Dan show the rest of the field how it should be done.

Adam Brayton
Adam Brayton was one of the few riders who actually made it to the start line of last year’s final. Although he didn’t make it on to the podium, he’s got the guts and experience on the course that will no doubt play to his advantage.

Craig Evans
Craig’s mountain biking career got kick-started by fellow downhill legend Steve Peat, after impressing him with his racing attitude and determination. Despite not making a podium spot in last year’s race, Craig made sure that he was having fun, finishing his Hardline run with a huge whip.

Bernard Kerr
Bernard Kerr is the jack-of-all-trades of mountain biking, as he's more than competent in downhill, freeriding and dirt jumping. Last year Bernard took third place, so it'll be interesting to see what he comes back with this year. His gutsy performance at Red Bull Rampage shows he’s happy to go at pretty much anything.

Ruaridh Cunningham
The 2007 Junior World Champion will be looking for a repeat performance of last year’s race, where he managed to put down a solid run and take the top podium spot. Watch Ruaridh’s winning run here.

Mark Wallace

The Canadian rider travelled further than any other rider last year to compete at Hardline. Unfortunately, though, things didn’t quite work to plan and a crash in practice ruled Mark out of the race.

Brage Vestavik
Fresh-faced Brage Vestavik is the biggest thing to come out of Scandinavia’s downhill scene in a long while. Although the 17-year-old mightn't have established himself on the World Cup circuit just yet, Brage has tonnes of talent and will be looking to prove himself on the course.

George Brannigan
New Zealander George is known for his rowdy riding and competitive spirit – a combination that seems to be working well for him in 2016, as he’s currently sitting in 11th place in the World Cup rankings.

Eddie Masters
The Kiwi rider grew up riding with brother Wyn and Sam Blenkinsop. Eddie’s known for being a bit of a joker, but he’s living proof that you can still have fun and be fast.

Rupert Chapman
Rupert is looking strong for 2016, having already climbed to the top of the podium at the New Zealand National Championships back in March, beating fellow New Zealander and Hardline competitor Eddie Masters.

Matt Walker
Matt Walker put in the hard years as a privateer on the World Cup circuit before getting recruited into the newly launched CUBE Global squad earlier this year. From City Downhill, to Crankworx and the Downhill World Cup, the 25-year-old has many talents when it comes to life on two wheels and has already impressed in 2016 with his victory at Crankworx Rotorua.

Brook Macdonald
New Zealander Brook Macdonald stormed onto the downhill scene after taking the gold medal back in 2009 at the Junior World Championships. This year has seen Brook start a new racing chapter with a switch from Trek World Racing to GT Bicycles.

Mick Hannah
Australian rider Mick Hannah started his life on two wheels with a BMX, winning three national BMX titles before turning his hand to mountain biking. Being one of the oldest riders in the field, Mick’s experience and mix of disciplines under his belt will no doubt work in his favour.

Joe Smith
Welsh downhill rider Joe Smith is no stranger to this challenging course, having participated in the last two editions of Red Bull Hardline. He’s steadily making his way up the podium, taking fourth in 2014 and second in 2015, so it'll interesting to see where he ends up this year.

Taylor Vernon
Taylor was robbed of his Hardline experience in 2015 after injuring his ankle in practice. At just 20 years old, he's one of the youngest riders tackling the course, but being team-mates with Gee and Rachel Atherton should stand him in pretty good stead.

Mike Jones
Welsh downhill rider Mike Jones prepared to compete at Hardline in 2014, but an injured hand meant that he had to withdraw from the finals. At 21, Mike is still relatively new to the Elite MTB scene, but made a name for himself straightaway when he came second in his first ever National Champs.

Graeme Mudd
Australian rider Graeme Mudd has never participated in Hardline, but he’s been racing for 16 years, so has plenty of experience. He's also a talented BMX rider and became world number three in BMX at just 14 years of age, a skill that will likely translate well on the Hardline course.

Laurie Greenland
At just 19 years of age Laurie Greenland is one of the youngest competitors at Hardline this year. 2016 was Laurie’s first year in the Elite category, but don’t underestimate his ability. Not only did he finish in the top 20 in this year’s UCI World Cup, he also came second in the 2016 World Champs in Val di Sole.

Alexandre Fayolle
Alexandre Fayolle is known for being a speed junkie with a fearless and wild riding style – apparently a result of his dad giving him his first motorbike at the age of four. Although the 20-year-old is new to the Hardline course, the French rider has shown a lot of promise this season, taking his first podium spot at the World Cup in Vallnord.

Alex Bond
Alex started to make a name for himself back in 2011, when he put in a solid season on the World Cup circuit as a privateer. Despite a couple of years plagued with injury, he has a gutsy riding style that will stand him in good stead for Hardline.

 They may have some big booters but its still fundamentally different. The Fest crew takes a hardline against race formats and big sponsorship. It would be fun to see Cam Zink there though (he has a racing background not afraid to send it). And how about extra time subtracted for big tricks like the Dual style and speed? That could make things real interesting...

 Jeep commercials disguised as mountain bike videos... A few thousand. Sik Mick doing a suicide no-hander off that step-up... Priceless.
  • + 195
 Who cares is Jeep is all over the videos? They are likely paying a huge portion of the bills to have this event, they deserve to have their name all over it. Last I checked the entire sport of mountain biking is sponsor driven. Riders aren't getting salaries from professional sports teams like mainstream athletes. There no huge money from ticket sales or TV contracts. Everything is sponsor driven. The whole thing is one big commercial. Every mountain bike video you watch is a commercial. Every race you watch is a commercial. Its all done to get exposure for the sponsors. That's the only money coming into the sport.
  • + 29
 @sino428: Would be better if they gave us a sneak peak at the new Wrangler-Truck.
  • + 34
 We should be happy Jeep has provided resources ($$$) in order for this event to be worth these pros attending and risking injury. Also provided $$ for the build teams, equipment, supplies, etc.
  • + 39
 So you're saying that this event is... sponsored??

Shocking accusation, if true, it would really ruin the credibility of the event. And here I was thinking all this expensive camera gear, trail building equipment and prizemoney was conjured out of thin air, from epic amounts of stoke.
  • + 3
 they gotta sensationalize it for the dumbed down masses so they can grow the sport. it can make it tough for actual bikers to watch! sick rider line up! i hope that if other pros asked to join that they would say yes - open this up to the gnarliest riders whether they be racers or freeriders.

 Let us hope that big ramp isn't made by Jeep Smile
...and before you ask, I have owned a Jeep.

 Makes me laugh when people get touchy about advertising in vids and feeds etc, but are quite happy to ride round the trails and towns with jerseys and tops sporting massive brand logo's, basically free billboards for the companies .. and .. best of all .. we pay THEM for the privilege ha!!! yep - I don't like advertising unless I have paid for it and am wearing it for all to see ... whats' all this advertising where someone else pays and i get to see it for free ... sheesh!

 I'd rather Jeep to spend some bucks on the Atherton to build an awesome track rather than 10 times more for a 2 minutes prime time TV commercial.

 @whey-dh: I believe you are correct. The track was running slow last year. Dan even says it in the vid about how the metal ramp allows them the ability to adjust it depending on the conditions. Seems like a direct response based on what happened last year.

 He raced the first year I think, crashed out, but hardline is an odd one in the way they present finished product, fake commentary, not live, a little dull, heavily edited videos.. odd, last year was a bit better but it takes itself a little too serious - RedBull stuff, while well made can be so dull some times (note .. this does not mean riders are boring OR that the track is boring, far from it)

 Love how there are guys saying invite the fest guys. Are you takin the piss. Yes the jumps are fest size jumps but to get to these fest size jumps you need to be a very talented DH rider and make it down the rest of the course.
  • + 7
 yeah rampage is in a pretty non-technical spot, i forgot how easy it is on the top ridge.... the thing im most surprised with is how everyones underestimating the fest guys DH abilities
  • + 3
 @whitebullit: rampage is gnarly and scary and huge but I would not says it's overly 'technical' in the way the term is usually used to describe DH riding. The features these guys build at rampage are nuts but for the most part the lines seem pretty buffed out. No rock gardens, roots, etc. I mean a lot of guys don't even run chain guides or bashguards at rampage.
  • + 16
 I'm sure the Fest/Rampage riders would have no problems making it down the course, making it down in a time that's competitive might be a different matter
  • + 1
 @catweasel Several of the fest guys (probably all of them) have a DH background too though. Andreu used to race world cups with his brother if I remember rightly
  • + 2
 @whitebullit: but on the ridge those guys are sooooo slow. Rampage is a tricks event. Only gee ever rode rampage at proper speed imo. Hardline is a dh track. A British dh track at that,no berms,barely a track tbh. Very steep,very rocky and will probably be pissing it down. Then you have huge jumps at dh speed landing back into rough,wet,rooty dh track. Rampage guys could ride it but no way would their times be competitive.

 @mikelee: Gee did ride Rampage fast. There one one rider last year I remember that was just flying down as well. Can't remember for sure but I think it was Remy Metailler.

 Vink has been before,, while the Fest guys will crush the jumps, got to remember its more a highly tech down hill race than a big jump comp, and while the fest guys can rip, they cant compare to pro downhillers .. in general .. as ever there are always a few exceptions to the rule, but you get what I means

  • + 18
 @jojotherider1977: Dan was originally into dh and was very good. Best result at wc was second. He was a regular top ten rider though. But he chose to do 4x when it was on the wc circuit as well as dh. He got good at 4x and won a wc and placed in most finals. Even after breaking his neck he got back into dh but in the end he was honest enough to say the speeds required to win were out of his comfort zone,so now he competes at enduro. Guess what? He's shit hot at that too! An awesomely talented and driven athlete. He's never been sponsored by redbull but was sponsored by Nissan and now would appear to be jeep. Hope that's helps.

 It's interesting to have fest, rampage and hardline. All pushing the boundaries in different ways. Due to the terrain and weather I would say hardline is the big brother of the other 2.
  • + 0
 Alright mate, hardline has big features and challenging terrain but in now way it can compare with the 60/70/80/90 feet MOTOCROSS jumps of LooseFest, let alone Rampage where guys are sending 360's and suicide no handers off 60 feet drops etc. I mean yeah the features are big and the course is rough but it's far from being Val di Sol rough or LooseFest huge.
  • + 3
 I think it is fair to compare. Geeade his mark on the rampage course with some triples and big lines to wall rode that nobody else has hit and stuck. He just didn't flip or suicide anything. There was a fest rider invited to hardline last year, the consiquences of an issue on a Welsh slate hillside with the wind and rain and blindness of some of the featuresmay have put them off taking part. Val di sol is different, it's a pure rough race track, nowhere does it have a road gap or step up like hardline. Or an on off feature that is blind like hardline. We all have different opinion for what is hardest, best etc. They are all bonkers events and well done to the riders who take part.

 @PhillipJ: Bummer. I was hoping she was just holding back because at the height of her racing career it wouldn't make sense to risk injury. But she's probably telling it like it is--I mean, if the course is made so only the 20-odd strongest DH/freestyle riders on the planet could complete it, that pretty much means no women can. Biology is a turd.

 How much of the track will they let you spectate this year? Last year you could not get up as far as the renegade step up,

 We were able to go up to the step up, but had to go a long way round to get to the jumps further down as there wasn't a route alongside the track. Couldn't go any higher than the step up though

 This event really represents mtb in my opinion, the mix of giant jumps and technical riding

 They really downsized that renegade jump in terms of length from last year after no one claimed its glory. But it was wet
