    Does anyone have a link to the picture of a guy with his fork lowers falling off mid race? I think the fork was a manitou travis.

    I've been looking for about 2 hours now and cant find it anywhere!

    Many thanks.

    That happened here in Los Cocos, Cordoba, Argentina. It was during the 2009 national championship. Luckily the rider didn't get any serious injury, just a couple of scratches. And it pretty much summarises why you shouldn't ride a Manitou fork ;-).
