Downhill, also known as DH, pits riders in a race against the clock, where they must skillfully negotiate a succession of fast and technical passages. Riders must show courage along with excellent technical and piloting skills to be able to successfully traverse around tree roots, banked sections, bumps, jumps and other natural obstacles along the way. "Pietermaritzburg is a tough track for suspension setup because you need traction in the dust, a supple and active suspension in the top section, and a firm platform for the pedaling section. As much of a contradiction as this course is, the wide range of adjustability of my FOX suspension let me race a bike that was good from start to finish. The podium says it all—three different bikes, three different riders, and one single choice in suspension," said Minnaar.

"I had a pretty good idea of what it took to win, and knew that if I could get a good start and then be consistent with my lap times, I would be hard to beat," said CJ Greaves. "Suspension that is tuned specifically for the weekend's track conditions was a key to my success," CJ added.
