This year saw the world's toughest downhill race, Red Bull Hardline, expand from its origins in west Wales to the island state of Tasmania off the Australian mainland. It has now just been confirmed the Tasmania incarnation of Hardline will return in 2025.

Hardline Tasmania will once again take place at Maydena Bike Park, the competition dates for 2025 are February 7th and 8th. Another one to mark on your calendar is November 10th, as that's when spectator tickets will go on sale from redbull.com.

Incredibly, 22-year-old Irish riding sensation, Rónán Dunne, won both the Tasmanian and Dyfi Hardline events. He confirmed that he's extremely keen to retain his Tasmanian title (and his Dyfi title too). "Red Bull Hardline Tasmania was a pretty amazing event. It was my first time down in Australia and to this day one of my favorite tracks I have ever ridden. Jumps were sick, technical features were amazing, an all-round incredible event. To take the win was amazing, a dream come true, especially in one of the biggest races of the year. Now I have my eyes set on winning the next Red Bull Hardline Tasmania.”

Canadian rider, Gracey Hemstreet, won the women's event. The 19-year-old said: "I absolutely loved Red Bull Hardline in Tassie, it was my first ever Red Bull Hardline and it was the most insane experience. The people were amazing, and the course was next level!! I can’t wait to see what kind of changes they make for 2025!"
