The fourth Red Bull Hardline event is returning to Wales this September, and it's set to be another exhilarating experience for all!

On 24 September 2017, some of the best extreme cycling professionals will face an incredibly tough downhill mountain bike race through the Dyfi Valley hills in Machynlleth.

Former champion cyclist Dan Atherton helped to make the course extra challenging, putting in wide gaps to jump over, weaving forest sections and making the most of the naturally difficult terrain of the Welsh hillsides. 

Spectator tickets have sold out already, but you can still enjoy the event by watching the race live online on Red Bull's website. You can also relive the best of last year's Hardline race, or read about how Dan Atherton came up with the tough course.

If you're feeling inspired, why not feel the excitement of mountain biking for yourself by taking to one of Wales' other MTB routes? Mountain Bike Wales has centres across the country, and you can search for a trail that matches your experience and location on their website. As well as marked trails, there are plenty of other routes you can cycle around Wales. See our online guides to cycling in Wales for more information. 

Pop your helmet on, grab the handlebars and explore the country on two wheels!
