Red Bull Hardline: Full Rider Line-Up Revealed

STORY BY Debbie 3rd September 2019

With Red Bull Hardline less than two weeks away, the full rider line up has now been announced.  The roster boasts an impressive 29 riders, 12 of which will be making their debut in Machynlleth, Wales.

UK dirt-jumper and slopestyle specialist Matt Jones will be amongst the 12 riders making their debut at this year’s race. Now slated as one of the best up-and-coming slopestyle riders in Europe, Matt Jones is sure to be a crowd favourite at this year’s event. His twin, Jono Jones will also be competing adding another case of sibling rivalry to this year’s competition alongside the Atherton brothers.

13 British riders will be included in this year’s field, however, Adam Brayton has announced that he’ll miss this year’s event after breaking his collarbone in a heavy crash during training. In 2017 he qualified fastest but the weather conditions and long technical course were too much to handle causing him to crash out in the final section on the last run of the day. The full rider list can be found here.

The sixth edition of the toughest downhill mountain bike race in the world, Red Bull Hardline, will take place across the weekend of the 14th-15th September. This year, tickets are available for the Saturday open practice session and qualifying. Finals will take place on Sunday. A huge screen will be in the event village for the public to watch the race on both Saturday and Sunday. All the action, both Saturday’s qualifying and Sunday’s final will be available to watch live at

Sunday tickets have now sold out, however, tickets for Sunday are available, they are sold per car, for a cost of  £40 + booking fee (max five people per car). In total, 500 tickets per day have been made available. In 2019, spectators will have access to more of the course than in previous years with viewing areas accessible further up the track. For more information and to buy tickets please visit and join the conversation @RedBullUK with the hashtag #RedBullHardline.
