Select RockShox® sponsored athletes competing in this year’s Olympic games have been given a special Beijing Limited Edition SID. These are sure to be coveted, as there are no plans for this version to become publicly available.Graphic Designer, Russ Forbes lead the graphic design of the Beijing Edition SID. Forbes said, “The Celestial Chinese Dragon is often seen as the symbol of the Chinese. It symbolizes power and excellence, valiancy and boldness. A dragon overcomes obstacles until success is his.”


Competition begins with the Women’s Mountain Bike Cross Country on Friday, August 22 3:00pm (local Beijing time). On Saturday, August 23, the Men’s Mountain Bike XC takes place at 3:00pm. For real time coverage, or to check your local listing, visit www.nbcolympics.com.

 Well it would be neat to get your hands on something so rare, but I'm not going to be shelling out the big bucks for some special stickers.

 I agree... that course was killer. While I was watching, I could not help but drool over how bad-ass that course must be to ride.

 agreed. it's like they're doing massive road gaps, but with the perfect take-offs and trannies, it's like they're still pedaling and not leaving the ground.
