    World Cup downhills have been won on rear air shocks before, it's just been a really long time. Example, Nico Vouilloz won the 1995 World Cup at Cape D'ail, France on a GT LTS that had a Fox ALPS air shock.

    thanks for the info. that's why we put "reports are...". i was kind of skeptical that this was the first, too. i'll tweak the captions!

    I had noticed that. You guys have always seemed to be pretty good/consistent about making that distinction in such cases.

    It's a feat for the modern DH bikes and the gnarly course w/ an air shock for sure, but facts are facts. Thanks for digging them up!
