Spectator tickets went on sale at midday (BST) today for this year's Red Bull Hardline (opens in new tab), which takes place on 10 and 11 September at Dyfi, Mid Wales, UK. On a course designed by renowned DH rider, Dan Atherton, Red Bull Hardline has garnered a reputation as one of the most challenging downhill courses on the planet and has become a must-ride event for the world's greatest racers.

Dan Atherton said, “It’s amazing to see how far Red Bull Hardline has come over the last seven years, from the raw concept of year one to the polished product of year seven, the concept has always been about pushing the boundaries of the sport and this year will be bigger and better than ever – we can’t wait to welcome back spectators for our eighth edition.
