Red Bull Hardline is easily one of the most exciting mountain biking events of the year and this edition was made more exciting by the presence of PNW Squad member, Lewis Buchanan. Lew was invited to the event with limited notice, but rallied to the call and gutted through injuries to participate.

Red Bull Hardline Final Run by Lewis Buchanan
The track for Hardline is gnarly, and that's an understatement. The occasional section looks fun, but to race it from top to bottom just seems terrifying. Hats off to Lew and the other riders for pinning it down such a wild trail.
The Crash That Blew Up Social Media
Lew had a pretty nasty crash early on in practice and sustained a coccyx and sacral fracture as a result. We're thankful that Lew is on track for a healthy recovery. Check out his breakdown below and watch to the end to hear his future plans.
