Dan Atherton wanted to build a course that pushed the world's best to their limits. So, in a mere six weeks, he took a piece of Welsh hillside, a tonne of man-hours and built one of the most demanding racetracks ever seen.
Cue, gnarly rock gardens, giant slab rolls, tight woods sections, technical natural features and a giant man-made road gap. Add nine of the world's best downhillers and you have the very first Hardline race.
