Red Bull Hardline 2021 Course Map
What to Expect
Is it cliche enough to expect the unexpected? Early weather reports show a dry week of practice, followed by light rain on Saturday and patchy showers for the race on Sunday. Will that benefit some riders above others? Who is more likely to take some risks?
Nestled in the remote Welsh mountains the course ensures riders will have to defy some of the largest jumps and slab rolls seen in downhill mountain biking, including an extension of the gap on the mammoth Step Up jump for this year, making it faster than ever before, and leading directly into a brand new 65ft step down feature.Red Bull Bike
Where and How to Watch
Throughout the whole weekend on Red Bull TV there will be rider interviews, behind the scenes access and all the action live from Dyfi. The finals start from 2 PM (BST) on Sunday but before that, you can watch qualifying on Saturday at 2 PM.
