FOX Racing Shox would like to congratulate their sponsored Athletes who will be racing in the Beijing Olympics Mountain Bike event August 22 and 23. The athletes will be riding a range of Cross-Country forks in the event. “We test and work with our athletes all year, they all have different preferences on how they want their suspension to be set-up and we work with them so they can get the most out of their suspension,” stated Mark Fitzsimmons, Race Manager.Several of the athletes will be riding prototype dampers with FOX’s inertia valve technology. “We have been working with athletes to develop the next generation inertia valve and some of the athletes felt it provided such a performance advantage they had to have it for the biggest race of their career,” said Fitzsimmons. Athletes on standard production product will be racing on FOX Racing Shox new 2009 F Series with Remote Lockout Forks.
