In conjunction with the US National MTB Championships, Sonoma also held round #5 of the NMBS downhill series. While Duncan Riffle piloted his fully SRAM equipped Iron Horse to the Men's DH National Title, Australian Amiel Cavalier took the overall race and collected some valuable NMBS points. Amiel chose to run the new RockShox Totem Solo Air on the front of his Giant Glory. After his first practice session Amiel immediately came over to the SRAM truck saying, "This fork is amazing! I can't believe how stiff and light it is."

Sonoma marked RockShox's new freeride forks fourth race and first win. Earlier in the summer Mic Hannah ran the Totem during the Willingen World Cup, SRAM's own Tyler Morland used it at the Mount Saint Anne World Cup and SRAM's Euro MTB marketing manager Elmar Keineke rode the Totem to a third place finish in the Master's European DH championships.

While designed for freeriding, Totem's stiffness, weight and performance is seeing application on courses that don't require 200mm of travel. Look for more Totem's at Crankworx sending it in the slope style.
