The score

If you’re curious, here’s Loic’s Lapierre over the course of the season. Let’s take a look at what shock he chose to run, where and when. Turns out he ran coil over air most of the time. At this point, I have no idea why he does or does not choose air vs. coil.

Rotorua: Coil

Lourdes: Coil

Fort William: Air

Leogang: Coil

Lenzerheide: Coil, complete with a special thermometer strip to keep track of damper temp on track

Whistler Crankworx, Le Deux Alpes: Air

Mont Sainte Anne: Coil

Windham: Coil

Val di Sole: Coil

Andorra: Coil

  1. Wow, it's almost like Bruni is using coil shocks on tracks where there are sustained pitches of chunder where you can't just bounce over everything, and air shocks on the tracks where you don't have that. Huh- a World Cup racer adapting to conditions. Who would have thunk it?

  2. Don't worry about Bruni's setup.

    Quit sniffin' Stobel's chamois and figure out how to go faster yourself…
