He's been testing some super tacky grips that apparently wear out after just a few days.

It’s a press release put out by the EWS, so the only team affiliations given are those of officially registered EWS teams. Have a look at any results sheet from previous rounds and you’ll see the same thing.

Those do not appear to be stock Fox crowns. Mojo MORC maybe?

Being smaller, in theory Troy’s already more aero than Loic. You might have to bring back the bullet and paint it to look like it has a visor

He probably is the split marker. It's not uncommon for the split times to be recorded manually be someone pushing a button. To be fair though, given where he's standing and the pace riders are going I highly doubt he'd even register in Loic's line of ... more »

That's a production name for the 'breaker' labeled casing they've been testing for a while. From what I gather it borrowed from the puncture resistant kevlar composite (K2) casings previously used on some of their road tires but has been further refined for other applications. The shield icon is the same as what they used for K2. I'm going to guess that it would be similar in concept to the Aramid reenforced casings used by Vee and eThirteen.

Look at their last split! With 40 seconds to go the top 4 junior men were separated by under .2 of a second.

Added a comment about photo FOX Shock Spotted on Loris Vergier's Bike 8/29/2019 8:00 AM

How much oil flows depends on how much is displaced, so that would have more to do with the shaft diameter relative to oil volume. Changing the size of the valve ports could make it flow more easily by increasing the surface area of whatever it is pushing against (shims or valve seat) but it won’t increase how much oil is flowing. Maybe that’s what you meant and I’ve just got my suspension jargon wrong? This wouldn’t necessarily require changing the overall size of the valve assembly so I’m curious to hear if it’s a totally new design, just a bit larger, both, and why. Anything more than the basics of shock design is way, way over my head but my inner geek still enjoys reading about it.

LSR looks like it has been moved from the bridge back to the other end of the shock, so I'm guessing that means this shock might use a mid-valve style piston (similar to Vivid RC2) rather than the 'push-pull' design of the X2. Compression valve looks larger, wonder if they're moving away from the shim-less design of the current shock? Looks a lot more refined than the X2 did when it first showed up in proto form.

Regardless of age he's got to be one of the best all around cyclist in the world. This winter he also finished mid-pack (and didn't get pulled) against Van Der Poel and the rest of the elites at the Wachtebeke CX. That's remarkable for a guy in his mid 40's. Prior to that he did a few EWS rounds and pretty much crushed the rest of the masters class in Olargues and Whistler by like 2 minutes, his time after the first day in Ainsa would have been top-ten against the elites but he pulled out on day two with an injury. What a legend.
