Matt Jones

bigquotesThe 2024 Red Bull Hardline course is brand new! A whole new top section of downhill track is going to push the worlds fastest World Cup racers to ride further and rougher features than ever. This is my first track walk video with the pro athletes seeing everything through new eyes. But the news is now official that the river gap is being removed from the track. So although I tested the insane canyon gap on Friday with Bernard kerr and Jim monro who had the crazy crash - the decision has been made to remove it from the course and create a plan for the future to make it work better for all riders. Thanks for all the amazing comments and support for hitting this jump! LegendsMatt Jones

bigquotes2024 Red Bull Hardline is here and the new course is wild!! Proper DH, exposed steep shoots, soooo many gnarly rocks. It's going to be tough to figure out. And then there's all the original features!Jono Jones

bigquotesDay 1 at Hardline Wales! Started with a bit of a track walk and then some seasoning on only the lower section of the track in the hope the upper sections will be a bit drier and better to ride tomorrow. Minor carnage and crashes occurred with a lot of riders ticking everything off from below the road gap.Jack Moir

 Could they not have just rented like 10 bouncy castles and put them at the bottom of the river gap and kept it in?

 Def not saying Ronan was 'bad' before. But he like... Power leveled during the last off season. Would love to know what those around him are seeing. The new bike looks good under him. He makes high speed and risky lines look better than anyone else. If he wins this event it's just a wrap on breakout rider of the year award sorry. He's already a shoe in.

 @h8terbike999: ya I think I was 'surprised' by oisins and ronans 1-2 last season but... I guess there shouldn't be anything surprising about it anymore. It was obvious he was one to keep an eye on but wow, this feels so much more than that. His riding style is insane. Not sure who to compare it to.

 It's interesting seeing the change from "pro MTB'ers" to "pro influencers". A guy like Matt Jones is 1000x more valuable to a company then e.g. George Branningan and that Pink Bike poll a while back cemented the death of our sport. Even old George has had to make a YT channel just like every other guy out there trying to make a living off his sport. This is inflation guys. How many cookie-cutter "track-walk" and "course POVs" can mother nature take before Valhalla?

 You get a sense of it in some of the shots, but the track walks must be just stupid now — it’s just a whole bunch of people talking into their own cameras. Yawn

 I feel like these events would be a lot more interesting if you couldn’t simply go on YouTube or Instagram and watch everybody ride everything over and over again. Sometime less is more.

 The Atherton brothers should of sacked up and hit their canyon jump first.

 For all the complaining in the comments about the canyon gap it seems many riders are disappointed they won’t get to hit it.

While most seemed to agree it needed to be tweaked a bit, the idea that the feature itself was dumb or too dangerous doesn’t seem to be an opinion shared by the riders themselves.
  • 1 1
 I Agree, people like to fight on something that they are not concerned by and want to decide for it. It took exaggerated proportions without asking/hearing the principal concerned about the features and the context. If you are not on the invite list why the f*ck are you asking to take the feature down, you won't even ride it...."I don't want to watch someone die".. then don't watch the event, it's your only power.

The feature will be on the course next year according to Bernard so we will get through all of this bullshit again in 2025? lol

 funny how the canyon gap now looks like abandoned ski jump ramp on all the YT preview pics

 On most the videos they're saying the canyon is going to be back next year with a Net and extra safety. Apparently they have planning for it for 5 years.

 Hats off to Bernard Kerr for testing that gap...brave boy..I think it will be in the run next year with a net and some pads on that scaffolding, maybe cut off the scaffold tubes that are sticking out waiting to impale someone..

 Not only the canyon gap but quarter of the track at least with that other river gap...
