It’s that time of the year again. No, not the Tour, not the Olympics. It’s time for Hardline. The appropriately named contest, dreamt up by Dan Atherton to create one of the toughest downhill tracks imaginable.
Don’t believe us? See for yourself with Bernard Kerr’s 2021 course preview. Frankly, it’s amazing that he stays so calm and collected while talking us through the massive senders, drops, and puckering rock sections. Every year, it seems almost impossible for the course to get any more impressive, and yet every year, Hardline seems to deliver.
Watch it live, starting with qualifying on the 24th, and finals on the 25th in just a few days.
