Looks like everything is gonna be on the line come Downieville race day. Mark Weir sat it out last year preferring to take the roll of new Dad much to the dismay of his potential rivals, and in 2008 he flatted whilst Ross Schnell broke his course record. But just yesterday at the heavily SRAM-sponsored Ashland 12 Mile Super D, Weir and team/work mate Jason Moeschler smashed not only Adam Craig (2009 Downieville winner) but Ross Schnell and pro DHer Jared Rando. You can expect the Rock Shox vs Fox rivalry to heat up come July 11.
