Dang, helluva memory! Just googled that up, and you're quite correct - that was something I hadn't recalled and slipped through the research cracks. Olivier Bossard was the man behind Nico Vouilloz's suspension while Max Commencal was the Sunn team manager, and a decade later the same guys were the ones behind the overnight air can volume increase for Remi's bike after the data showed the need for more progression.
Great insight Fab, thanks for the reminder!

Dave reiterated many times, it's not always your suspension which is to blame. And while tech tips are great, this is a focus on specific tools and how they are applied to improving the rider/bike/track harmony.

Just to clarify why Brook crashed: a mechanical locked up his rear wheel under braking and pitched him off the bike out of a compression as he approached the knuckle of the roll-over.

Added a comment about video Greg Minnaar is on Another Level - Fort William Winning Run 6/7/2017 4:13 AM
C138x104

Yes and no. Yes, because Minnaar had won here 6 times already, and two in a row until this run. No, because he won by almost three seconds and it looked startlingly effortless (which is of course not true, but visually it was impressive), and his rolling speed/momentum was also something that could be seen.

On a related note: this is insanely impressive to watch. I was floored when I watched this the first time...and always will be.
