Team UR take on Redbull Hardline
Last weekend was the 3rd edition of the now famous Red Bull Hardline, now with a reputation for being the hardest Downhill race on the planet. It features some of the maddest jumps, rocks, and drops, only a few brave riders are invited to take on the challenge.
This year Team UR shredders Same Reynolds and Alex Fayolle were both invited to join in the madness. Sam, getting out of his comfort zone as a newbie to the Hardline. Alex, having competed last year, was looking to up his previous performance.
As if the track wasn’t hard enough, the rain invited itself to the party and made some sections nearly impossible for all riders keeping everyone on their toes. Alex put in a huge effort during qualifiers coming in 3rd. Sam not qualifying but put on an epic show sliding some tricks in on some of the bigger jumps.
For the finale, thousands of spectators turned out to support their favourite competitors, unfortunately for Alex it started raining making a tricky course extreme and after crashing twice he was happy to get across the finish line.
So epic to see top racers pushing the limits of their sports, we can’t wait to see what this team can accomplish next year!
