Ooof. But at least they announced it already. The tardiness of last year's announcement was unbelievable.

Knowing in October is a net win for USDH, even if the scheduling is questionable.

Red Bull Hardline UK June 1,2 with Tasmania event, Feb 23,24. Official PR below.

THE WORLD’S TOUGHEST DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKE EVENT RETURNS FOR 10 10-YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION
 


 

(Tuesday 31st October, 2023) The most anticipated downhill mountain biking event, Red Bull Hardline, is back as it celebrates its 10-year anniversary, returning to the unforgiving terrain of the Dyfi Valley in Wales on 1st and 2nd June.

 

Tickets are now available, and spectators can expect the same level of gnarly jumps and drops that has made this one of the most iconic events in the sporting calendar, as it puts the world’s best riders to the test both physically and mentally. 

As we gear up for the 10th anniversary in Wales, Red Bull’s mountain bike athlete Matt Jones aims to lay down the fastest time on the course with a little help from four wheels and Red Bull drifting legend, Mad Mike. Find out if Matt Jones can claim the title of being the fastest rider to conquer the track in its ten year history here.

The 2024 event not only signals a decade of downhill mountain biking progression, but for the first time in its ten-year history, Red Bull Hardline will venture beyond its renowned UK location to make a debut down under as it visits Tasmania, Australia on the 23rd-24th of February 2024. Builders of the UK event, Gee and Dan Atherton will take the daring spirit of Red Bull Hardline to Tasmania, as the bravest and best riders prepare to risk it all to win in Australia.

Following the incredible progress and personal triumphs from female riders sessioning the Hardline course earlier this year in the Dyfi Valley, the 2024 edition will continue to provide a platform to test and progress towards piecing together the full course, across both events in the UK and Australia.

Inspired by the efforts of the riders pushing the boundaries of women’s downhill on the Red Bull Hardline course this year, Tahnée Seagrave was at the forefront of creating an environment with Red Bull’s support for an incredible group of talented and eager female athletes to accomplish as much of the course as possible:

“Red Bull Hardline is THE most difficult mountain bike race in the world and we want to approach the Hardline Women’s Camp in the right way that creates an environment to facilitate and support the progression of the girls at an attainable speed so that more girls can eventually have the opportunity to tackle this course. This approach allows the girls not to be thrown into the deep end but instead truly progress alongside each other to get the best out of the introduction of girls to this level of event.” 

Tickets for the event in Wales on the 1st and 2nd June are available at redbull.com/hardline. To stay up to date on all the latest information on Red Bull Hardline including rider announcements and event information visit redbull.com/hardline and join the conversation @RedBullUK using #RedBullHardline

My partner and I are planning a euro trip and wanted to see if we can line up a date with a world cup event. I think we're targeting the Les Gets round but it's June 28-July 7. Does anyone know which weekend it will be? I'm hoping its the second weekend and I don't have to burn as much PTO because of the week of the 4th.

Would be nice if the UCI could actually release some info on this so FANS could make some plans.

 

Thanks

That sounds right. I was told it is being run the week of the Olympics because of broadcast issues, or something. I have the same dates blocked out already.

Ahhh, OK, I thought the goal with the Whistler stop was to have it during a lull in world cup schedule so that big racers would attend. And since the WC schedule JUST dropped I didn't think Crankworx has dates in place yet. But good to know. Thnx!

I wonder when the Fort Bill round of the BDS is next year? I'm guessing it'll be after the WCDH race, as that's a month earlier than usual. I don't think dates have been released yet, but maybe Hardline has been scheduled early June to coincide with that?

Also with a WCDH round on the 5-7th July and Crankworx starting on the 19th, July is looking pretty busy.

We have a French national downhill race scheduled for 28-30 June, so those in the know here in France clearly think the WC DH is the 5-7 July. They wouldn't schedule a national DH race the same weekend as a WC DH.

His bones and muscles will be ready I suppose. But considering the number of head hits he's had, this time with a skull fracture surely he's thinking about reducing risk?

With lots of football and rugby players from last two decades having degenerative brain diseases, OG mtbers might be concerned?

It doesn't appear that Gee has the self-preservation gene, I think he sends until dead day.

you're too fast, dolface! here's the email GCN just sent, too...it's an ADD-ON to Max (B/R sports) if you want to watch bike racing. lame.

Dear GCN+ Subscriber,

We are sending you this email to remind you that unfortunately the GCN+ service and the GCN app will close on 19 December 2023.  

As a reminder, your GCN+ subscription will end and you will be unable to access the GCN+ service and GCN app starting on 19 December 2023. You will be provided with a refund for any amounts that you have paid in advance for access to the service after the closure date. Refunds will be applied to the payment method used to purchase the subscription.  You can still use your GCN log in credentials on the GCN website at globalcyclingnetwork.com and the GCN Shop at shop.globalcyclingnetwork.com.  Your personal data will continue to be handled in accordance with our Privacy Policy.  If you have additional questions, you can reach our customer service team here.  

We’re happy to announce that starting in February 2024, an expansive roster of 300+ of the biggest live races across Road, Mountain Bike, Track, BMX and Cyclocross — including the Giro d’Italia, Classics, Mountain Bike World Series & UCI Track Champions League — will be available for U.S. Max subscribers via the B/R Sports Add-On.

Max’s B/R Sports Add-On offers exceptional value with the widest range of premium live sports content included such as the MLB, NHL, NBA, NCAA Men’s March Madness, U.S. Soccer, 24 Hours of Le Mans and a variety of non-live sports programming to appeal to every fan. Read the official announcement here.

Thank you for being a GCN+ subscriber, we are grateful for your support.   

    

Sincerely,   

The GCN Team 

This really sucks; I paid for GCN+ because I wanted live MTB broadcasts to work; I will NOT be paying for a Max sub PLUS an effing "add-on". Angry

And that add-on will be $9.99/mo in the US.

Canadian email didn’t offer any future options for viewing. Max isn’t available up here. 

that's bonkers if there's no option. here are current subscription offerings for max in USA (which seems to include the B/R thing) as a non-subscriber.
