THE HARDEST DOWNHILL MTB RACE?
If you think that Dowhill World Cup tracks look crazy, you should definitely try (try to watch, of course) Hardline race. Probably the toughest downhill event in the world, which only a group of selected riders can take part in, is set in Dyfi Valey.
The course created by Dan Atherton changes and amazes every year. Combination of technical section with free-ride jumps provides astonishing spectacle for viewers and appalling almost tree-minute ride for competitors. Steep parts, which become almost impossible to ride during the rain, lead to huge drops and unbelievable road gaps. There is no possibility to skip any of it! However, the chosen riders are conscious of difficulties of that kind. Struggle for survive is not their only aim during the event. Although the public will appreciate the technique of dealing with hops and drops, crucial factor is the time. Like in every race, winner is the one who is the fastest!
