Video: Course Preview with Gee Atherton and Charlie Hatton - Hardline 2019
I assume Charlie stalled sometime around 2:46. No sign of his footage, shadow, or indeed him from then on. I think even Gee was surprised not to be able to see him down at the finish line.

Video: Trackside Analysis with Eliot Jackson - Maribor DH World Cup 2019
@aljoburr: Yes. It's not exactly a 1:1 displacement of air by cushcore since there's air inside the closed cell foam structure, but that air is independent of the tire air and experiences a different force:pressure curve. Essentially the air in the foam acts more progressive than the remaining air in the tire and acts like it has much more high speed compression and rebound damping due to having to move the (relatively heavy) foam structure.

I would imagine that too much volume would act like uncontrollable undamped suspension, plus the difficulty of supporting the sidewalls through corners at those speeds. It may well be that cushcore-type tire inserts will allow larger DH volumes than previously seen.
