    Anyone know the name of the guy who handles Fox's race support at all the US/Canada races. That's him in the picture. He's the one who gets the rig to the race and does an awesome job of getting everyone's suspension dialed in for the weekend. I know his first name is Mike, anyone know his last name?


    Thanks in advance!

    That guy is tight he pulled his huge trailor infront of my shop came in and gave me the 411 on whats going on in the fox suspension world. He knew everything like he had built it himself it was rediculous.

    Erm, you thinking of rockshox?

    Fox is reknowned for working on ANYONE'S shock at races. You don't even have to be racing normally, and they will pimp your ride.

    wydopen - it's good policy to get your shock to them early - the earlier the better! They are always willing to help you out if you work with them just the smallest bit :)

    who's the "go to" man at Fox to talk to?

    I find Ronnie to be very very knowledgeable at marzocchi and when I can't find a answer it's him I call.

    Bobby at manitou is also very helpful in time of need.

    The Fox guys are super cool. Helped me custom fit a shock on my old Iron Horse at the Ste Anne W/C. The Manitou guys wouldn't even fix a blown Swinger (no rebound on that course?!!).
